Origin of the French Kiss

French kissing (aka deep kissing, aka soul kissing) is an action that originates from primeval times, and it is inspired by the way in which tribal women used to feed their infants with solid food. In those days, the mother chewed the food, and in order to feed her baby, she’d place her open mouth over her baby’s, and use her tongue to pass it over into the baby’s mouth. As the infant got used to this method of feeding, it would use its tongue to probe the mother’s mouth for food once mouth-to-mouth contact was made. In this way, the action of tongue-probing became associated with a loving act.
