Breakfast at Tiffany's kiss

By Koseli.

Brain Pickings recently chronicled the first kiss in cinema, captured in 1896 by none other than Thomas Edison.

We know that public display of affection was stridently frowned on during the victorian era. I found this extra tidbit in the article particularly interesting: “…the act of kissing was referred to as “sparkin’” if it took place indoors, usually the parlor, or “spoonin’” when performed outdoors, in a secluded spot far from the public’s eye.”

What about you? Do you “spark” or “spoon” or are you more reserved with expressing affection in public? Does your spouse or partner feel the same way? What’s your favorite movie kiss?
