Abstract: In this book, Professor Sutton traces the legal history of the act of kissing in civil society.

Finally, the kiss has been prohibited as obscene in at least one major film. This book provides an entertaining and illustrated historical and cultural tour of the changes in the legal implications of the kiss throughout civil society.
