We enjoy a good interactive map, and we suspect you probably do too. So, just for fun, we think you should check out the brand-spanking-new, cheesy-but-still-cool Toronto Kiss Map. The brainchild of Firefly Creative Writing’s Chris Kay Fraser, the Kiss Map tells Toronto’s smooching stories by having users plot their most memorable make-outs on an interactive map, accompanied by a brief (and usually entertaining) summary. Again, just for fun, two of our favourites include: “At Pape and Withrow. Drunken. Sloppy. Delicious” and “At Avenue and St. Clair: I had the hiccups. You cured them.” While currently operating on a Google Maps interface, the Kiss Map will soon have a home of its own at torontokissmap.com, thanks to the appropriately titled Awesome Foundation, which awards monthly grants to people with great ideas—like this one. Finally, Torontonians can be more like Vancouverites (we kid!) and document their public displays of affection in a very public way.
