Do primates kiss?

Nick - Check out Scientific American, latest issue. There's a kinda
weird article on social structure and sex in bonobo chimpanzee
communities in the wild and captivity. Yes, they kiss. And from my own
observation, orangs in captivity kiss also, at least parent to
offspring. In a commercially available video called "People of the
Forest" (The Discovery Channel Video Library) I think there are scenes of
a adolescent female kissing an infant, but I don't remember for sure.

That at least gives you a start!
