Real-life “Sleeping Beauties” agree to marry whoever “wakes” them with a kiss

Aug 27, 2012 By Abraham 10

Five women are on display in bed with their eyes closed, pretending to sleep and getting kissed by strangers in a bizarrely creative and romantically ominous art exhibit at the National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kiev.

Both the women being kissed and the men kissing have signed contracts saying that they will marry each other if the woman opens her eyes during the kiss…

If I were one of the women, I’d be nervous of (among other things) actually falling asleep and then opening my eyes by accident when an unexpected peck on the lips startles me awake.

    too bad to see that little “sam” from “diffrent strokes” didn’t wake her up there at the end… he looked so disappointed…
