Some scientific and odd facts about kissing
Start with the science lesson:
The science of kissing is called Philematology (yes really)
Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain) as those that are released when doing strenuous exercise. Heart rate increases and breathing becomes deep and irregular.
Giving a quick peck kiss uses two facial muscles whereas passionate kissing uses all the facial muscles and burns up to twenty-five calories per minute. (A great way to work out)
How to read a kiss
Psychologists call a kiss a relationship barometer
Kissing the hand is friendship and respect
Kissing the nose means that your partner likes you
Kissing on the cheek means they need you badly
Kissing on the neck means desire
Kissing the closed eyes stands for showing love
Kissing on the lips symbolizes passion
Its healthier to kiss than to shake hands ("Wouldn't you rather kiss?")
50% of all people have their first kiss before the age of 14 (I was 5, how old were you?)
We all know that kissing symbolises passion, but think on this one
Recordings show that Canadian porcupines kiss one another on the lips. (Very carefully, I wouldn’t wonder)
All husbands take note of this one:
Men who kiss their wives every morning before going to work live 5 years longer than all others.
Just be glad you do not live in medieval times. A couple discovered kissing in public meant they could well be forced to marry

Maybe they wanted to check if the wives had been at the wine
More than 5,300 couples went into the streets and kissed simultaneously for at least 10 seconds in Manila, Philippines to kick off Valentine's Day 2005.
Finally, something to think about ladies:
The average woman uses up approximately her height in lipstick every five years and "eats up" 2.5 lipsticks pieces per year.
A woman is driving along listening to the radio when she hears a song she really, really likes. When the song is over the announcer says the title of the record was, "Hot Lips and Tender Kisses."
When she gets home she's very excited about the new song and decides to call her local music store to see if they have the record. Hurriedly, she dials the store's number. But in her haste, she unknowingly dialled the wrong number and got through to an auto repair shop instead.
"Hello," the mechanic answers.
"Oh, yes. Do you have Hot Lips and Tender Kisses?" she asks.
The mechanic was puzzled, but says, "Well, no, but I've got hot pants and seven inches."
"Oh, is that a record?" she says.
"No," he says, "but it's better than average."
