The 'French Kiss': Who Invented it and What Was it meant to Symbolise?
March 16th 2007 04:04
A cliché term used two describe the passionate-sexual embrace of two tongues. The 'French' part of the phrase meaning to do something very sexual and naughty in nature, referenced to anything French. As some historical findings claim that its usage dates back to the 1730-1820 English French period. And then continued to be used during the 1930's through to the World Two period and followed on from there and now has became a pop-culture teenage adage. While labeled by some as a 'freedom kiss" meant to stand for freedom of expression within a liberal society between two people. So once associated with origins of decadence which was deemed always the French way of doing things, now seems to stand forfreedom of expression. So ‘Is the 'French Kiss' a Freedom Of Expression or Act of Decadence?’ Whoever invented or phrased the term must of either had something against the French, admired or envied them. When they attached anything the French did as being immoral and dirty. That is if the ‘French kiss’ has its French origins. There is not much documented evidence to back up any of these claims. Most of this is just speculation. To think we don’t really don’t know that much about something that is probably enacted on second by second basis by millions of people. Yet most experts still don’t know the exact origins and meaning of the phrased ‘French Kiss’ and where it originated from, a term used repeatedly by so many, that embrace it so much.
