If in Shakespeare's time, the women roles were played by trained boy actors, how did they do romantic scenes? For example, the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet or when they had to kiss?

Thanks

  1. Stage actors can appear to kiss when they are actually close but not touching. However, probably some did really kiss on stage.
