The French Kiss

Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those NSFW posts…

Just like the French, the French kiss is sensual and VERY personal. As in you have someone else’s tongue in your mouth, personal. So what makes it French exactly?

Thank you Wikipedia for a quick lesson in etymology ….

“A French kiss is so-called because at the beginning of the 20th century, the French had a reputation for more adventurous and passionate sex practices. In France, it is referred to as un baiser amoureux (“a lover’s kiss”) or un baiser avec la langue (“a kiss with the tongue”). The Petit Robert 2014 French dictionary, released on May 30, 2013, added the French verb “galocher”—to kiss with tongues—making it the first time a single word described the practice.”

So there you have it. Now all we have left to talk about is what makes a good kiss…
