The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: five-fold kiss

DEFINITIONS

Five-Fold Kiss: In Wiccan initiation rituals and other magical practices, a pattern of kisses applied to an initiate or witch. There are several different versions in common use at present. One involves kisses on both feet, both knees, and the genitals, forming a pentagram. Another expands the pentagram, and places kisses on the head, hands, and feet. Still another places the kisses on feet, knees, genitals, breasts, and lips. In many traditions, the Five-Fold Kiss is given by a woman to a man or by a man to a woman, but not by people of the same gender to one another.
