The French have finally added a word to the dictionary to describe their most famous expression of l’amour: the French kiss. The Petit Robert 2014 French dictionary added the verb “galocher,” which means to kiss with tongues. Previously, the French described French kissing literally, as in “kissing at length in the mouth,” the dictionary’s publisher explained. What a mouthful! Instead “galocher” will explain the amorous smooches, which take their name after the word for “ice skate,” as someone seems to think French kissing are like tongues sliding around the ice. It sounds much more elegant than in real life. Makes you wonder what took them so long? [NBC News] [Photo of French kissing via Shutterstock]

Tongues away, everyone! A Dutch Supreme Court panel decided on Tuesday that forcible French-kissing should not be on par with rape. For 15 years, The Netherlands’ criminal code stated a “forced-tongue kiss” and rape both carried a maximum 12-year prison sentence. But this panel of three men and two women overturned a rape conviction on a man who forcibly French kissed a woman, instead ruling that forced tongue kissing is indecent (sexual) assault, which carries a lesser eight-year sentence.

Now, I most certainly do not approve of forced anything in the realm of sexual sexytimes. CONSENT, y’all! But you might be wondering, as I did, why forcing your tongue in someone’s mouth was seen as criminal as forcing your penis in someone’s anus/vagina/mouth . According to the Daily Beast, The Netherlands have a broad definition of rape as “any form of unwanted sexual penetration,” which mean to include penetrating body part into any orifice. I guess these judges decided the law needed to be more nuanced. What do you think of the decision? Agree or disagree? Let us know in the comments! [The Daily Beast]
