    Default Some Things About Kissing That You Didn’t Know

    "French kissing" is awesome now, but it used to be an insult.

    The term “French kiss” originated in 1923 as a slur on what was thought to be the overly sexualized French culture. The French were onto something, though: In ancient history, mouth-and-tongue kissing was thought to truly merge two lovers' souls.

    Women enjoy kissing more than men.

    Though this statement might be incredibly gendered, many studies have shown that women generally prefer kissing more than men, and think it's more important in a relationship.

    Your lips have got a lot of nerve.

    Lips have a disproportionate amount of nerve endings compared to other parts of your body, making them more sensitive to the affections of another.

    The longest kiss lasted for more than two days.

    Coming in at 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds, the Guinness World Record for longest kiss went to Ekkachai Tiranat and Laksana Tiranat of Thailand. For their efforts, the couple won a cash prize, two diamond rings, and the prestigious Guinness title.

    Kissing is hard to forget

    In a study at Butler University, a researcher named John Bohannon surveyed 500 people about their memories of milestones, including their first kiss and losing their virginity. Surprisingly, more people remembered their first kiss than anything else!

    The Romans kissed, too.

    Though they were consistently brutal, the ancient Romans also had a tender side. They kissed each other when signing contracts to seal the deal - in fact, it's said that the kiss at the end of a modern-day wedding can be traced back to the Romans.

    Kissing is still illegal.

    In some parts of the United States, it's still a punishable offense to smooch someone. In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, you can't kiss a stranger. In Hartford, Connecticut, it's illegal for a woman to kiss her husband on a Sunday. And, in Wisconsin, it's said that it's still illegal to kiss someone on a train! Something tells me they'd have a hard time prosecuting you for these offenses. Go ahead kiss, ya big rebel.

    Humans aren't the only ones who kiss.

    After a fight, chimpanzees often participate in kiss-like behavior. Evolutionarily speaking, it makes sense: We're not the only primates who like to kiss and make up.

    Kissing is all chemical.

    The act of kissing releases dopamine into your brain, especially when you're kissing someone new. Dopamine makes you happy and energized. When you're kissing someone you've known for a long time, like a spouse or partner, your brain releases oxytocin, which makes you feel relaxed. Either way, scientists recommend to kiss regularly.

    Seattle is (apparently) for lovers.

    Surveys have shown that residents of the Northwest United States kiss an average of 5.5 times a day, which is more than any other area of the country. Perhaps all the rain makes people need more tenderness?

    People have been kissing each other's asses for over 300 years.

    The earliest written reference to "kiss my ***" is from 1705, and was used as a harsher way of telling someone to "go to hell."

    Kissing comes naturally. Maybe.

    It's hard to tell if kissing is instinctual or learned behavior. While it comes easily enough for most Americans (besides your high school boyfriend), in some African and Asian countries, kissing isn't really practiced as often and therefore is not a way that people express love.

    Kissing is, well, pretty nasty.

    When two people kiss, they can exchange anywhere from10 million and 1 billion bacteria. Another incentive for a solid teeth brushing before makeout time.

    Kissing can be scary.

    Philemaphobia, or the fear of kissing, is rare...but it does happen. Most people who have an intense fear of germs have a good chance of developing philemaphobie - remember how much bacteria is exchanged with each kiss? Frankly, that scares me a little bit, too!

    Kissing isn't just for the birds.

    Some scientists believe that kissing began long ago, when mothers would chew up food for their babies and spit it into their mouths, just as birds do. There isn't much to prove this theory, and that's a good thing - regurgitation just isn't very romantic.
