Kiss of affection – between parent & child or friends. Without any erotic feeling. A kiss of affection can also take place after death. In Genesis it is written that when Jacob was dead, “Joseph fell upon his father’s face and wept upon him and kissed him.”

Kiss of peace – used as an expression of deep, spiritual love in the early Christian Church. Christ said, for instance, “Peace be with you, my peace I give you,” and the members of Christ’s Church gave each other peace symbolically through a kiss. Apostle Paul repeatedly speaks of the “holy kiss”, and, in his Epistle to the Romans, writes: ” Salute one another with an holy kiss” and1 Thess 1:26, he says : “Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.”

Kiss of respect – a holy, noble, and worshipful kiss to the gods, their statues, temples, and altars, as well as to kings and emperors. It is done out of reverence. People even kissed the ground, and both sun and moon were greeted with kisses.

Kiss of friendship – The kiss is also commonly used in American and European culture as a salutation between friends or acquaintances. The friendly kiss until recent times usually occurred only between ladies, but today it is also common between men and women, especially if there is a great difference in age.
