Kissing

2014

Public kissing was greatly frowned upon during the uptight Victorian era, when this scene was produced in Thomas Edison's new glass-topped studio in New York City. As a result, the movie was banned in most areas (which of course, only made it more popular). Sadly, the two lovers have come down through history as unknowns, but their behavior is most familiar. In their day, this popular sport was called "sparkin'" if it took place inside (usually in the parlor), or "spoonin'" if committed outdoors in a lonely spot, a "lover's lane", or, as the song goes, "By The Light Of The Silvery Moon."
