Check out these fun kissing facts:

In the year 1763, Kissing gets X-d. Kissing is first symbolized by the letter x, as in xoxoxoxo.

In 1896, the first on-screen kiss happened betwen actor John Rice and actreess May Irwin in the movie aptly named, THE KISS. The less-than-a-minute film was showng during the final scene of the Broadway play called THE WIDOW JONES and that on-screen kissed caused outrage at the time.

In 1990 - the most kisses per minute! A man by the name of Alfred Wolfram kissed 8,001 people in eight hours (hmmm...let's see: that's more than 16 people a minute). This all happened at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. I think Alfred was a very popular man that day! LOL.
