Ahhh, kisses. Who doesn't love a moment of intense shared passion? We all remember the awkwardness of our first kiss when our cheeks flooded with rosiness and our hands got a little too clammy. For those of you who are married, you probably will never forget the first experience you had touching the lips of your person. Kissing is universal. Whether you are kissing on the cheek because of your culture's etiquette, kissing someone to show how you feel or smothering someone you have missed with kisses- the gesture is all rooted in the same feelings of admiration, compassion and excitement.
Whether you are single or committed, an young newbie or an expert like Hitch, someone that drinks like a fish or sips water all night, chances are you've enjoyed countless kisses. No matter how many times you are kissed, it seems to never get old. That's why there's literally a day every year set aside to celebrate the wonderful joy of kissing- International Kissing Day (aka today)!
If you need another reason to kiss someone today- here are some benefits of kissing:
1. Kissing burns calories- need I say more??
2. Kissing lowers anxiety!
3. Kissing boosts immunity! A kiss a day keeps the doctor away, perhaps?
4. Kissing increases Oxytocin levels which helps you bond with the other person and become calmer!
5. Kissing increases Serotonin! We all love Serotonin! Say no to drugs. Say yes to kisses!
