Kiss. Smooch. Peck. Smmmmmmmack. Necking. First Base. Making Out. Tongue Tango—-whatever you want to call the delicious union of two sets of lips, meeting to pack a powerful, intimate union between two people, kissing will never go out of style.
Butterfly kisses. Chocolate kisses. Eyelash kisses. Nibbling—-so many and so much fun to give and receive. Whatever your pleasure, it’s all good….real good.
A few facts about kissing:
There are over 100 nerve endings in your lips that stimulate passion, and that melt all over feeling.
Why is the letter “X” used to symbolize a kiss? Historically, people who could not write their name, made an “X”on documents. To pledge their honor, they painted their lips and kissed the document next to the “X”.
Kissing unleashes endorphins, makes your heart beat faster, allowing more oxygen to reach your brain, putting you in a state of euphoria.
Kissing lowers the levels of cortisol (stress hormone), making you feel relaxed, secure and an overall feeling of well being.
