Cultural history of the kiss

Japanese regarded public kissing as taboo even in the 20th century. The reproduction of The Kiss by Auguste Rodin was displayed in a small room behind a bamboo screen in Tokyo in 1924.

According to researchers the custom of kissing evolved several million years ago out of the feeding habits of mammals, who nourish their offspring mouth to mouth. Others say kissing is an instinctive act.

The earliest known recorded kissing-like activity, people rubbing the noses together, appeared in the ancient Indian sources in the 1,500s BC.

According to Roman law, if she was passionately kissed in public a maiden had a right to demand full marriage rights from the daring kissing man.
