The couple, known for not holding PDAs, are regularly photographed with French kisses, but a closer look at their ugly images shows that their cries are less spontaneous than they look.
On Monday, the couple was spotted in lustful arms at the Met Gala, but footage even shows Travis not actually a Frenchman kissing his beauty, but poking his tongue between her loose teeth.
And, according to body language expert Judy James, these eye-catching, tongue-popping appearances are a way to look “sharp” and “cool”, ensuring that the cameras get the best shot.
Last night, Courtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker showed a very heated demonstration in front of the world press as Gotha went down in downtown New York for the annual Met Gala. Body language expert Judy James has revealed why their “tongue twisting” posture isn’t as spontaneous as it may seem.
And they’re not alone: before he met Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson was kissing Kate Beckinsale at a hockey game, and couples like Cardi B and Offset were also known to share pictures of each other poking their tongues on social media. networks to show how hot their relationship is.
“Tongue poking is still seen as a rude and cheeky gesture, and such a tongue-in-cheek closure makes a couple look hot,” Judy said.
“It also allows them both to be 100 percent visible in a way that they wouldn’t be if they kissed normally.
Because celebrities keep tongues for these sluggish kisses,no one needs to bow their heads to risk hiding their traits, ”Judy pointed out.
“It is also important that it does not spoil the makeup and does not smear lipstick,” – added the expert.
Looking at the couple’s appearance at the Met Gala on Monday night, Judy noticed that this twisting of the tongue was one of the only ways to touch the couple.
“We see that there are very few other contacts in this pose,” she said.
“In Courtney, even the hips are pushed away from Travis, while a hint of real passion would be pressing the pelvis,” – she added, believing that the couple is organizing a show for the cameras.
And there is a reason why all celebrities adopt the full CCP: because they are competing for their relationship to be the most discussed.
“This feature that touches the language is not only eye-catching but also competitive,” she explained.
Before he met Kim Kardashian, Pat Davidson formalized his relationship with Kate Besicle with a French kiss during a hockey match.

Cardi B and her husband Offset also shared pictures of their bright makeup sessions online
“Couples of celebrities like to compete to outdo each other in terms of sexual cues and risky outfits.”
An expert on body language explained that a couple playing on the red carpet with French kisses wants to be known as couples who can’t tear their hands apart.
“The idea is to present a‘ moment ’that looks intimate and sensual, a spontaneous act of lust for a couple who just can’t take their hands off each other,” she said.
And Judy noted that it’s more likely to be used as a tactic by older celebrities than the teens you expected.
“From a brand perspective, it creates a sharp, shocking and rebellious look that is often also seen as a bright star of body language for celebrities who can sometimes wave goodbye to their young years,” she explained. “They want to look like eternal teenagers as well as emphasize their unchanging desire.”

But, like many things in Hollywood, very little is left to chance, and these lustful kisses are “just as carefully delivered as any routine on Strictly,” the expert added.
“We can watch the couple wander the red carpet before suddenly“ breaking in ”to lust as soon as they get in front of the cameras.
“They can even repeat the kiss a few times as they make their way across the carpet, and you can often hear small applause from the press and PR when they get paid,” Judy added.
So why French kisses? Judy explained that this “hot” visual is great for both partners in the couple.
However, behind the posed kisses was some real chemistry, Judy said, noting that “the clue to their true relationship away from the impact posture comes from locking and parting their hands in a clasp.
“It’s a much nicer gesture that suggests a nicer, more romantic relationship behind the scenes,” she added.

Megan Fox and Kelly Machine Gun
The Transformers star and her fiancé-rocker enjoyed what looked like a spontaneous hot session during the MTA VMA in September, but they knew the world was watching.
“Megan and Machine Gun’s pose may look spontaneous, but it does require some awkward curvature to make it look so good,” Judy said.
“Megan likes to sit or stand in front of a much higher machine gun to reveal her body and clothes as much as possible, and in order to turn her tongue, you need to tilt your head back and chin at an awkward angle,” she added.
“Don’t try it at home, it’s extremely painful, but it obviously looks great for the cameras,” the expert added.

Kanye West and Julia Fox
Even the laconic Kanye West fell in love with the art of public French kissing when he was seen kissing former flame Julia Fox during Paris Fashion Week.
However, the rapper did not seem to like the kiss as much as his partner.
“Kanye’s pose looks much more passive when he is held in a hot lock in his arms and reacts by simply opening his mouth and exposing his tongue to allow her to touch him or lick him,” Judy said.
“It looks like an attempt to mix” cool “with” bold “, but his obvious lack of effort does not really indicate an unquenchable lust,” – added the expert.
