Tssss! Es un Secreto

I suppose I shouldn't dwell upon these things the way I do, but why do we "shhhh" in English while in Spain apparently they say "tssss" when telling a secret, a sound I would associate more with the sound you make when touching a moistened finger to the backside to demonstrate your scorchiness. Maybe it's because some king or someone had a lisp so they all have to do it in some bizarre solidarity thing. Or perhaps only Luis Agile who does that.
