* In Bollywood, it was, until recently, the law. Even now, in contemporary Bollywood films, couples will kiss and... move very suggestively, but virtually never touch lips.
* Subverted in ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1334537/ Humpday]]'' - they decide not to kiss after kissing each other [[spoiler: and then decide not to do anything at all.]]

* The musical "[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0356999/ Not on the Lips]]" is the one of the most most obvious uses of this trope. The whole premise of the movie is that a man will not kiss his wife on the lips because it disgusts him.

* There's a point in ''[[Literature/XWingSeries Wedge's Gamble]]'' where Leia Organa kisses Wedge Antilles on the cheek. They're PlatonicLifePartners / LikeBrotherAndSister, apparently. That didn't stop them from holding hands, talking about Wedge having kids, and the line "Things may have changed, Wedge, but not us". ...Wedge and all three members of the Big Three are very, {{subtext}}ily close in those few pages they share, but although Luke hugs him for a ''long'' time and Han hangs out and ruffles his hair, only Leia kisses him.

* In ''Literature/LesMiserables'', Marius kisses Eponine on the forehead after she dies. Justified because, as the narrator explains, it was not him being disloyal to Cosette but taking pity on Eponine and fulfilling her last request.
* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Jaime Lannister remembers Tyrion telling him that many whores will "___ you blind" but will refuse to kiss.

* "Heartland" (a 1990's Australian series staring Ernie Dingo as an Aboriginal cop). The white female lead character finds that everyone in the hometown of Dingo's character [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend assumes she's his girlfriend]] and says quietly, "If you wanted me to play a role -- like your lover -- you just had to ask." Dingo's respond is to gently kiss her wrist.

* When Barbara Havers (of ''Series/TheInspectorLynleyMysteries''), the titular Inspector Lynley's partner, is held hostage at gunpoint on her first case back after being shot in the stomach the previous episode, she first tries to use the perp as a punching bag and then falls apart and [[InelegantBlubbering sobs hysterically]] [[CryIntoChest into Lynley's chest]] - and he very, very plainly kisses the top of her head as he holds her close. Obviously, it's one of the first scenes fans point to when they make their case for the fact that Barbara and Lynley are clearly in love with each other, even if they haven't acknowledged it.

* ''Royal Flash''. {{Literature/Flashman}} gets a kiss on each cheek from the officer who pins his (unjustly earned) medal on him. The kiss isn't what makes Flashman uncomfortable, but the fact that the officer's tricorne hat keeps butting him in the face.

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "The Body" Xander kisses Willow on the forehead. It makes sense, given that Willow and Xander are close friends, the kiss is one of comfort, and their significant others are both present. Ironically, Willow and Tara had just shared their first onscreen (lesbian) kiss a few minutes earlier.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Margaery Tyrell sneaks into the bedroom of Tommen Lannister [[spoiler:soon to be made king after King Joffrey is assassinated]]. Given that Tommen is still in his early teens, an overtly seductive approach might well backfire. So when it's time to leave she leans forward to kiss Tommen on the lips, but decides that a sisterly one on the forehead will work better.
