Right, i was watching a program called QI here in the UK (stands for Quite Interesting). For those who do not know, QI is a BBC program thats both a comedy and interlectual. They go through a certain topic every episode, and dispel popular myths, and misconceptions about certian topics. Comedians and interlectuals panel the show, and its one of Britains most followed programs.
I was watching a re run today, and a really interesting question came up. It was "What is the most appropreate way to kiss a french woman".
First awnser from the pannel came up with was "with her consent". However the final awnser was based upon research that shows that different regions have different acceptable standards for how much you should kiss a woman.
In Paris, and the northern region, 2 kisses to the cheek are considdered the most acceptable. In the south 3 kisses (except the riveara) are considdered most acceptable, the riveara also being 2. The extreme north in normandy the figure is 1. This is all based upon research i will re state.
So i can guess the question you all want awnsered - what about corsica. Well Corsica holds the record with 5 kisses being considdered the most polite. Many will never need this information, but tell you what - its Quite interesting, and thats the point of the program .
