The French kiss is basically just an open-mouthed kiss where either your tongue or the other persons tongue touches the other person’s lips or goes inside their mouth. Having just written out that definition, I have to say, a French kiss sounds pretty gross when you talk about it–but it can be great when you’re doing it (kind of like eating peanut butter straight out of the jar with a plastic spoon, you know?).
The main tricks to French kissing I think are that you shouldn’t be too forceful, you shouldn’t go too fast, and if you notice the other person doesn’t seem into it? Stop!
And . . . if you’re wondering if the French kiss is called a French kiss in France? It’s not. It’s just called “embrasser avec la langue” or literally “kiss with tongue.” I prefer our version, personally. It makes me think of croissants and mysterious men in berets. Oui, oui!
