Here’s why we call the open-mouth smooch a ‘French kiss’


The term „French kiss” entered the English vernacular in 1923, Sheril Kirshenbaum writes in her book „The Science of Kissing.”

No one really knows the exact reason why we use the term, but it was likely adopted by Americans who traveled to France and kissed French women, who were more comfortable with a bit of tongue action, says Kirshenbaum.

Naturally, the term „French kiss” developed.

Still, it took a while for the term — and even the practice — to catch on in the United States.
