Despite my tounge in cheek title (pun intended) this is a serious warning. It looks like kissing in public can have some severe consequences.

NO 'ing!!

It is true that many cultures greet with a kiss, even in the Middle East. In Jordan I saw men greeting each other with a handshake and a kiss on the cheek. But I guess that's not cool in Dubai.
