My girlfriend is an actress and she always does these local plays in our town. I don't have a problem when she has to kiss a guy on stage during the actual play (I will admit it still irks me but I just bite my lip and get though it) but when she rehearses with this guy at his apartment, they still do the whole kiss scene for real. And I only found out because I wanted to go with her one time and she said it probably wouldn't be a good idea because I'd get jealous. I just don't see why they have to do it over and over again when they're rehearsing, can't they just fake that part of it until the show. It really p*ssed me off when she said they have to practice that scene like 30 times that night, its like they are making out all night. What should I do or tell her?

ummm. I did a good bit of acting. Generally speaking you need to cool it as stage kissing is not particularly fun or erotic to do, but it is really hard to sell to the audience and truly *does* need to be practiced.
The caveat here is give it some thought as to whether you are willing to suggest she is cheating with the guy. Doesn't sound like it. It just sounds like you don't understand that when you act you are fully becoming someone else and it takes practice of every little movement (including stage kissing) to fully embody the person you are acting out. Relax romeo, she's prob not running off with him. and if she's not running off with him, then there is nothing to this but your own insecurity over a stage kiss being too real for you. People have this reaction, but as someone whose acted, its not a very legitimate worry.1
