Philematology is the technical name for the study of kissing, and the Romans even had the wherewithal to name 4 types of kisses. Osculum was a kiss on the cheek. Basium was a kiss on the lips. Savolium was a deep kiss. Osculum Pacis was a holy kiss. So I wonder... what would “kiss my ass” be called?
