If you've ever kissed a bearded face, you've surely experienced the pleasures, perils and chaffing that comes with it. In this hilariously honest video from GQ, real-life couples candidly share what it's like to intimately interact with a beard.

As one couple shares, it's possible you may even happen upon a live dragonfly nestled in the beard. Life -- like beards -- is full of surprises.
Fortunately for the bearded and their beloveds, there are simple ways to decrease the hazards of beard burn. Watch the video above for ways to ensure happy and healthy scruffy snogging.
