Osculatory Exercise

Josh Foer dates the beginning of the kiss, according to anthropologist Vaughn Bryant, around 1500 BC and in India.

The Bible, however, has Jacob saying to his son, Isaac, "Come near now, and kiss me, my son" (Geneis 27:26) and King Solomon penned "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth" (Song of Songs 1:2).

I think the Hebrews were first at kissing.
