The act of "French kissing" (kissing with tongues) has different names in different countries. For example, people call it "French kissing" in the United States, Turkey, Chile, and Nigeria. In the UK, they simply refer to it as "snogging".

The French just call it "baiser avec la langue" literally meaning, "kiss with the tongue".

Be careful when offering a "French kiss" in Austria since in that country, "French Kiss" is slang for fellatio.

Also, ironically enough, in India the "French kiss" is sometimes referred to as the "English kiss", due to the fact that it more commonly appears in English films than in Indian ones.
