    Frank! I was expecting the informed comments, the knowledgeable information that would make us all gasp with awe--- well, I will have to wait for other forum experts, apparently!

    Hmmm... no experts came to my rescue. Or maybe they're such gentlemen that they don't "kiss and tell"...

    In any case, I was still wondering and all I could find was a comment by a French person saying that "French kiss" is an expression invented by the American soldiers who came to liberate Paris during WWII. They were surprised by the sexual liberty of French women at that time and came back to the U.S. with this famous expression.

    This person also commented that in France, of course, you just say "kiss", and if you talk about having kissed someone, you most probably mean a "French kiss", unless you're 10 -or you make it clear, "I kissed him, no tongue".

    I also read that in some parts of the world it's considered gross, or bad manners, to French-kiss in public (too private, almost like having ***), and in some countries it's even forbidden by law.

    There's a nice article about the subject in Wikipedia...

    A (virtual, friendly) kiss to all,
    Laura
