International Kissing Day

Today is International Kissing Day or World Kiss Day. As the author of The Science of Kissing, what better way to celebrate than to share some fascinating facts about kissing:



• The earliest literary evidence for kissing comes from India’s Vedic Sanskrit texts, dating back 3,500 years.

• A passionate kiss can make our pupils dilate – probably one reason so many of us close our eyes.

• Two-thirds of us tilt our heads to the right when we kiss, and it’s not correlated with right-handedness.

• A man is far more likely to prefer sloppy tongue kisses than a woman. The added testosterone from his saliva may serve to enhance her libido over time.

• We are not the only species to engage in kissing-like behaviors. Great apes press their lips together to express excitement, affection, or reconciliation.

• In studies, people remember more of the details about a first kiss than first sexual experience.

• Kissing works like a drug in our bodies, and can promote dopamine – the same neurotransmitter stimulated from addictive drugs like cocaine.

• Our lips are packed with sensitive nerve endings so even a slight brush can send a cascade of pleasurable signals to the brain encouraging us to continue under the right circumstances.
