Ankara - The Turkish town of Adana has banned men kissing other men in public, on the grounds that it is not very sanitary - although other mixes of kisses are deemed all right. 'It is unhygienic for two men to bring their cheeks together in Adana's summer heat,' said Zeki Eker, an official at Adana municipality, southern Turkey. 'Just imagine what could happen with all that sweat. Besides, it is against our religion.' Reuter
