    Origin of the term French kiss

    The term French kiss dates back at least to the 1920s. I think it has something to do with the specific culture of France in the roaring 20s. The States had the Great Gatsby and decadence expressed in materialism, while the French had a decadence expressed as a culture of passion, during the 1920s. To be French was to be passionate, oh la la etc. French kiss.

    The above is the popular idea of how French kiss was started. However, I have another theory about the term French Kiss. The term might have started during the colonial wars of the 1700s when many idioms and expressions like French kiss, came about as the English looked for ways to put down the French.

  • In the book ‘Last of the Mohegans’ during the French and Indian war of the 1750s the English commander makes a put down of the French courage by saying “the French would rather make love with their face than make war” This book was written in the 1800s. So I believe ironically, French Kiss could come from this time of French and English anomosity. Why else would a classic book make sure a reference.
