From Wayne Houchin, renowned performer, creator, and star of Discovery Channel’s Breaking Magic.

In 2002, Wayne Houchin developed a unique card transposition effect. He called it French Kiss, and in 2009, he published the basic handling. Since then, it has become one of the most popular effects in card magic.

Your spectator is asked to select and sign a card at random. Their signed card is folded and held securely between their lips. You select a card as well, sign it, and place it in your mouth. Somehow, impossibly - the cards switch places. Your signed card ends up in their mouth. Their signed card ends up in your mouth.

It’s been called the most intimate effect in magic. Performed around the world by notable magicians like Cyril Takayama, Yif, Joshua Jay, Dynamo, & Dan White.

Refined and perfected over thousands of live performances. In addition to the basic effect, learn innovative variations including an all-new French Notepad Routine. Includes the original masterpiece and NEW applications.

30 minutes of instruction + Multiple Live Performances

Get a rare glimpse of Wayne Houchin performing his creation with additional voice-overs highlighting key moments of each presentation. Wayne shares his thoughts on magic - and how to maximize your reactions.


Customer reviews for French Kiss



For the right moment, this is the perfect trick. My wife asked for a magic show for her birthday (I'm a lucky man) and French Kiss generated laughs and a heartfelt moment as I reinforced our connection/love. I used it as a follow-up to Silent Treatment ( which kept the quiet tension going resulting in an even stronger reaction.



This is an amazing effect. I love how you don't even need to use cards. When I perform the it, I use the notepad that the DVD comes with. I was at a Wayne Houchin lecture where I bought it and he told me that you can get the notepadss at Walmart. He was right and I bought a 3 pack for a couple dollars. I do recommend using a pencil instead of a pen. GO THAT EXTRA MILE AND GET THE DVD. The packaging looks great and it comes with a notepad. Don't be fooled though, it says "different subtleties" but that's a lie. There's only one main one and it makes it so you don't have to do that "secret move" twice. But most of you guys probably know it already.

5/5 stars



This is a great routine that has been massacred by a lot of unpleasant performances on the internet.

In the modern age, with a dangerous virus ripping through the population, the premise of putting cards someone else has handled into your mouth is kind of ridiculous, and people's attitudes will probably remain that way for a long time, but strip that away and you still have have a great signed 2 card transposition.

Far better than the big headline effect however is the variation using a notepad, also taught on the DVD which has a faster setup and a less contrived handling, scrunching the paper into a ball and handing it over feels more natural than folding up a card to obscure its identity.

  • Sophia asks: Hi there! I was just wondering if french kiss is an impromptu trick or if you will need to do a particular thing/set-up before you get the spectator to sign the card, as I have my suspicions on how the trick is done, however I read somewhere that this trick is completely impromptu, which discredits my theory. Thanks!
