TICKLING, ITCHING AND even a rash. Some of the things you may have to put up with if you’re lucky enough to be regularly kissing someone with a beard.

Whether you’re into the appearance of face fluff in a partner or not, actually having to deal with it is a different story.

So in an effort to promote understanding, Buzzfeed asked a group of couples to switch roles. The man shaving off his beard and the woman wearing pretty realistic looking (and feeling) fake ones.

There was then some kissing, just to complete the experiment.
