* In the end of one episode of ''Manga/GashBell,'' Wonlei and Li Yen are sailing away and standing on the prow of a ship. They hold hands, look deeply into one another's eyes, their faces move together, and the camera cuts away just before we see their lips touch. I can't tell if this is a {{Bowdlerization}}, but it seems like a silly thing to cut, considering kisses have been considered appropriate fare for all ages for a ''long'' time now.
** But there is a different factor there - Li Yen is human while Wonlei is a creature from another dimension (and, literally, a ''demon'' in the Japanese version).

* In the manga ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', incredibly CreepyTwins Hansel and Gretel are introduced with a kiss, but the "camera" pans down right before their lips meet.
** Strangely, the next time they kiss ([[spoiler:right before splitting up]]) this trope is averted.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'', when the titular hero goes in to kiss his girlfriend, the picture is obscured by the RelaxOVision RunningGag. This is {{the last straw}} for Freakazoid and he beats up the creator of the RelaxOVision

* In the anime of ''Literature/HibikeEuphonium'', there is the intimate moment between Reina and Kumiko right before Reina's re-audition in episode 11. The way Reina tilts her head heavily implies that she gives Kumiko a kiss, and Kumiko's response afterward is also very telling. The "camera" zooms in on Reina's eyes at that precise moment though, so the audience never gets to see their lips.

* The shot is pulled back and seasoned with a shooting star when Doc Brown and Clara Clayton kiss in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', probably because ChristopherLloyd was deemed too old to do so up close.

* In ''F@nboy$,'' the 'did they or didn't they' type of DiscretionShot is used in a comic between Paul and Lemmy after SonicTheHedgehog was announced for [[SuperSmashBros Smash Bros. Brawl]]. Of course, a follow-up comic revealed that they didn't actually kiss, but Paul was lifting Lemmy to reach Shenanigans the Pink Lightbulb.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'': In "Evil Valentine's Day", we cut away to the girls' disgusted reactions when Jerry and Myrna kiss. Good thing too; there would've been a lot more FanDisservice.
