Are there human cultures that don't kiss, either because they aren't
aware of it, or have cultural sanctions against it?

Some other species kiss. There are enough varieties of primates to find
most human behaviors there. Bonobo's kiss. They also copulate frontally
sometimes, which is rare among primates. A connection there?
Humans also have more developed lips with lots of nerves than most other
animals. But you can say the same thing are ears too.
