One citation, from Wisconsin: "Dutch kiss--the ordinary variety, but one takes hold of the ears of the kissee. Very satisfactory end of a row, since it is exclusively a female's and children's kiss, and the kisser can get one last bit of revenge with a sharp pinch of the lobe." Another: "Dutch kiss--hold nose and ear and kiss cheek." >From Kentucky: "Dutch kiss--a stolen kiss or one supposedly stolen." To avoid vulgarities, don't even look in the Historical Dictionary of American Slang. - Allan Metcalf
