Kissing on the lips. Ragunath Venkatraman Ragunath
Kissing on the lips
Lingering Lip Kiss – This is a closed mouth kiss that lasts for more than 20 seconds. The tongue is not involved in this kiss. Lingering lip kisses involve the lips only. This kiss serves as an indication of deep love. Historians really don't know much about the early history of kissing. Four Vedic Sanskrit texts, written in India around 1500 B. C. , Appear to describe people kissing. This doesn't mean that nobody kissed before then, and it doesn't mean that Indians were the first to kiss. Artists and writers may have just considered kissing too private to depict in art or literature. After its first mention in writing, kissing didn't appear much in art or literature for a few hundredyears. The Indian epic poem «Mahabharata» describes kissing on the lips as a sign of affection. The «Mahabharata» was passed down orally for several hundred years before being written down and standardized around 350 A. D. The Indian religious text «Vatsyayana Kamasutram, » or the «Kama Sutra, » also describes a variety of kisses. It was written in the 6th century A. D. There aren't many records of kissing in the Western world until the days of the Roman Empire. Romans used kisses to greet friends and family members. Citizens kissed their rulers'hands. And, naturally, peoplekissed their romantic partners.
