I heard a long time ago that instead of kissing, they rub noses... Is that true???

The traditional Inuit people way of greetings is by pressing their noses and upper lips against the cheeks or foreheads and breathing-in, as to inhale the skin or hair of the person they greet. It is similar to that of the Maoris  in Aotearoa (New Zealand).

A question raised on 'The Straight Dope' web site

I want to clear up a question about a certain Eskimo social custom. The question is whether Eskimos loan their wives to strangers. I have heard this claim in various social gatherings as an example of how we might resolve jealousy issues, but I am skeptical and wonder whether this is an urban legend or has specific contextual constraints.

I guess I wasn't the only kid who ever dreamed of running away to join the Eskimos. I notice you use the present tense "loan." Did you have travel plans in case I gave the right answer? Sorry to disappoint, but the Eskimos have gone and let Christianity ruin a beautiful thing.

Since the coming of the missionaries, that sort of thing just doesn't happen any more. Besides which, it never really worked quite the way a certain sixteen-year-old used to imagine.


It's true Eskimo men sometimes let other men sleep with their wives. But did they offer that privilege to any horny schmuck who showed up on the front stoop? Generally not. The lending of wives to perfect strangers happened occasionally in some places, but it was never the widespread custom it has been made out to be.
