"The Words" Digital Image. PopSugar. 9 May 2018.

Finally, the “Best Kisses” list that features Latinos, the universally acknowledged best kissers on the planet. Prepare yourself for a steam fest because it’s about to boil in here, ranging from teen romance to on-screen couples that are already coupled IRL, to telenovelas.

Latinos know how to bring their A-game.

1. “The Babysitter

Cubana Bella Thorne took spin the bottle to the next level. Did I just see the heavens parting? Because this is the most divine it’s going to get on this list.

2. “Jane the Virgin”: Jane and Michael’s first kiss.

This is one of those romantic fantasies we’ve all had. After Jane assumed the cop at her 21st birthday party was a stripper and shot his gun into the air, romance just poured out. He watched a telenovela, and ceiling dust falls on them.

3. “Jane the Virgin”: The Kiss. It spurred a romance novel available in stores now.

You can actually go out and buy the novel that fictional character Jane Villanueva writes about her romance with Michael. Look at that cover art.

4. “Jane the Virgin”: Jane and Rafael’s first kiss.

Full disclosure: I’m team #Jafael all the way, and this magical Season 4 moment where both their hearts glowed and magical realism placed them in a meadow, setting the stage for a happily ever after was  e v e r y t h i n g. Until the writers wrote the finale.

5. Any kiss Camila Mendes has as Veronica Lodge on “Riverdale.”

Including this unexpected kiss with Betty in the hopes it would land them both a spot on the cheerleading team. Luckily, (then-closeted) captain Cheryl Blossom was unfazed and made them earn their spot.

6. But especially the make out sessions she has with her boyfriend, Archie.

They have the actual hots for each other, and you’re guaranteed to get a sex scene with every fight scene. It’s just how #Varchie functions.

 7. “She’s All That”

Freddie Prinze Jr. is a Puerto Rican hottie who plays a teen heartthrob (naturally). After coming clean about his less-than-pure plan to turn nerd Laney Boggs into his own personal popularity boost, they share a kiss like no other. #steamfest

8. “Original Sin”

Just watch Angelina Jolie’s character, Julie, and Antonio Banderas (aka Luis) take it to the bedroom. You won’t be disappointed.

9. “Don Juan DeMarco”

Here’s the premise: Don Juan DeMarco (Johnny Depp) believes to be the greatest lover in the world. I wonder what machismo would be like without this movie. Probably much more tolerable.

His kiss with Puerto Rican dreamboat, Talisa Soto, is pretty epic though.

10. “The Words”

Dominican and Puerto Rican dancer and actress Zoe Saldana could kiss Bob Ross and make it look sexy. Watch her kiss Bradley Cooper in this romantic comedy thriller and try not to get chills.

11. “Jane the Virgin”: #Petramos

Rosario Dawson plays Detective Jane Ramos, who is wooed by a complicated Petra, and together, they give us #Petramos. If you’re LGBTQ, you can relate to being hesitant to fall for a straight girl, or being Petra, and finally experiencing what it’s like to be “boy crazy” (but for JR). Their romance made the season just right.

12. “Gigli”

Russian roulette to any point in the movie, Gigi, and you’re 70 percent likely to get a steamy sex scene. J.Lo and Ben Affleck were already involved in IRL, so it made the scenes even more juicy.

13. “Glee”

Mitad boricua queen, Naya Rivera, and her best friend, and love of her life, Britney, marry after years of high school confusion, rejection, and the oh so slow process of coming out. Bless.

14. “Rent”

These two meet after Collins is violently mugged. Trans character, Angel, is played by Dominican Wilson Jermaine Heredia, who won a Tony for his role in the Broadway musical. Angel comes to Collins’ rescue and the two fall in love before Angel succumbs to AIDS. The love stories abound in “Rent.”

15. “Gangs of New York”

Half Cuban Cameron Diaz becomes Leonardo DiCaprio’s character’s love interest, and the two get involved in the 1850’s era New York crime gangs, and some heavy kissing.

16. “Grey’s Anatomy”

We all remember watching Callie Torres, played by Mexican actress Sara Ramírez, come to terms with her sexual identity (bisexual), and fall in love with Arizona. The two raise a baby together, and real life actress had her own sexual awakening as bisexual as a result.

17. “Parks and Rec”

Puerto Rican star Aubrey Plaza plays the role of a sullen, sardonic April Ludgate who falls for Andy while he’s still in love with his ex. When he finally realized his feelings for her, the kiss was everything we’d been waiting for, and classically cute, just like them.

18. “Jumping the Broom”

These two meet when Sabrina hits Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso) with her car. Romance (and drama) ensues, along with many a fight and make-up and make out session. Watch Afro-Cubano Laz Alonso play with our hearts.

19. “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”

Penelope Cruz straight up walks into a bar in a white dress and starts to seduce her man for one of the most epic and hottest kiss scenes ever. There is gasping for air, and you will be too.

20. “Y Tu Mama Tambien”

This was one of the first kissing scenes we ever saw. All these years later, it is still the one we think of when we think of hottest on-screen kisses.

21. “Ugly Betty”

The 2010 show was taking a risk when it showed Justin, Betty’s nephew, crush on his school play costar and get jealous watching him act out kisses with girls. When the two finally share their first kiss, there was a whole audience cheering, even if it is just a couple of teenagers. My heart is crying.

These Are Just Some Of The Latinos Giving RuPaul’s DragCon In Los Angeles So Much Life

mis_alexis_mateo / vanessavanjie / Instagram

There’s no arguing that “Rupaul’s Drag Race” has changed the world and perception of drag. Drag has become a popular, mainstream part of American culture in large part to the show and RuPaul’s work. Nothing proves this more than the annual RuPaul’s DragCon event that brings the famous queens to the fans with days of entertainment, panels and performances. Here’s a little peak into the Latino presence that will dominate RuPaul’s DragCon this year.

AB Soto

Get those dancing shoes ready. AB Soto is sharing his dancing skills with all of his fans and convention attendees. The singer and dancer is going to be part of the “Jealous of My Boogie” panel on Saturday morning talking about his love of dance and how he fell into the business. Be ready, he might be willing to teach you a few steps.

2. Yara Sofia

Yara Sofia is sharing her experience and expertise with her fans with multiple panels. First, she will be joining fellow Latino queen Alexis Mateo and other Season 3 queens to talk about how things really are in the RuPaul work room and beyond. Then, on Saturday afternoon, Sofia will give fans a taste of what it means to properly tuck for the best drag in your life. Be ready to hear some things that you might not be ready to hear.

3. Alexis Mateo

The mother of the infamous Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, aka Miss Vanjie, and that is what she is bringing to RuPaul’s DragCon this year. She, along with her drag mother Madame LaQueer and daughter Miss Vanjie, will host a panel about the importance of drag families. Just like friends, drag mothers and daughters are the family you choose.

4. Serena ChaCha

You might remember Serena ChaCha from her brief time on season 5. While she didn’t take home the crown, she did use her fame and name to create a line of wigs that will leave you gagging. That said, it makes sense that ChaCha will be imparting her knowledge about wigs to her fans during her panel “Wig Out!: Create Your Coif.”

5. Ginger Minj

Drag queens use sexual innuendos in a lot of their comedy. Not a read, just an observation. Clearly there is nothing wrong with some naughty jokes and salacious banter even if you are committed. That’s why Ginger Minj is joining Chad Michaels and Dusty Ray Bottoms on Saturday afternoon to discuss committed life while being a very famous drag queen. #Education

6. Aja

Who else remembers the game Toot or Boot from the show? Well, Aja and Raja are bringing the show to life with their own special version called “WOW Presents Plus: Fashion Photo Ruview.” Find out what these two queens think about different looks in only the way they can.

7. Cynthia Lee Fontaine

Cynthia Lee Fontaine left fans shook when she came back as a surprise contestant on season 9 after being eliminated in season 8. She did win Miss Congeniality on her original season so it wasn’t a total loss. She is just one of the queens during “Guess Who’s Back In the House: Returning Queens” to discuss what it is like to come back and face RuPaul again.

8. Vanessa Vanjie Mateo

Mis Vanjie! There is no denying that this queen made herself very famous when she left the stage chanting her name over and over again. The queens on season 10 still refer to that moment because that is a legacy, baby. Check her out on Saturday with her drag mother and grandmother discussing the concept of a drag family.

9. Madame LaQueer

All the way from Puerto Rico, and season 4, Madame LaQueer is one of the queens we cannot forget. She might have made 10th place on her season but her talk about family and the unity that is drag sisterhood is important. Check her out with her drag family Saturday afternoon.
