The wonder of kissing: why do humans kiss?

Kissing is a phenomenon which has occupied scientists for centuries, and still there is no clear answer to this question. Some theories say that it is an imitation of baby's breastfeeding. The oldest evidence of a kissing-type behaviour comes from Hindu Vedic Sanskrit texts from over 3,500 years ago. Kissing was described as inhaling each other's soul. Today only 46% of cultures kiss in a romantic sense - a figure which is said to be rising steadily due to globalisation. In many of these cultures, a kiss is a sign of love, affection, connection and friendship between two people.



Eternal life through kissing

Science does not always agree, but in this case they do; kissing is healthy, very healthy. Besides the fact that kissing releases endorphins and therefore makes us happy, the exchange of saliva also stimulates the immune system. As an added bonus, kissing also lowers your cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Regular and intense kissing can also relieve cardiovascular problems and also reduce high blood pressure. The American society for sexual behaviour found that people who kiss very often can expect up to five additional years of life.

With that in mind - long live kissing, long live the kissers!



Calorie burning made easy: hot and slim through kissing

While kissing, a total of 30 muscles in the face are at work. Kissing not only has a lifting effect on the skin, the tango of two tongues burns up to 20 calories per minute. Instead of jogging, which burns 350 calories, you could also just kiss for 18 minutes.

It's completely up to you to decide which of those activities is more fun...

What is the right way to kiss?

"A kiss is something you need both hands for."
- Mark Twain

Good kissing is not complicated. Even if some people say it is. Kissing is as individual and unique as both partners are. So just relax, go along with the mood and if in doubt, talk with each other. In fact, there is nothing more to do except kissing on the ABSURD LIPS blanket by 'zoeppritz since 1828'. You can curl up and kiss to this ;
