Pentagon has spent almost $700K training soldiers when to kiss someone

What happened?

The Pentagon has spent $697,627 since 2009 on training that instructs soldiers on when it’s appropriate to kiss a woman.

Whoa. What?

Last week in Fort Eustis, Va., soldiers at the most recent training learned to ask a woman before kissing her at the end of a date in "Can I Kiss You?" training from author and speaker Mike Domitrz.

“A hallmark of the training is telling troops they must ask a woman before a kiss ending a date, no matter what,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Where does the $700K figure come from?

Domitrz, who travels worldwide for speaking engagements to teach people about consent, works under the Date Safe Project. The group has gotten contracts with the Pentagon totaling $697,627 since 2009. The Fort Eustis event was part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and intended to spark “a conversation about relationships and intimacy."

Doc’s take:

Doc and Kris weren’t aware that taxpayers were paying for soldiers to learn how to kiss – shouldn’t they be learning how to fight instead?
