Ahhh....found these intriguing points regarding kissing, so I thought I'd resurrect this thread. Pucker up.....


Think you know a thing or two about kissing? You probably do. But the facts below are so off the beaten path, we’ll bet you don’t know them all — and they could come in handy. Not only could they provide some steamy “Did you know…?” small talk, but they’ll help you see all the benefits a satisfying liplock can bring into your life. Happy smooching!

1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.

2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that’s a rigorous workout!

3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.

4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.

5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.

6. Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.

7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.

8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.

9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don’t.

10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you’ve beaten that record, it’s time to celebrate!



10 quirky facts about kissing

Unfortunately, soon after she gets married the kissing suffers a downturn.

Well, as a rule I only speak for myself, however in this circumstance I feel confident in saying not all women are 'ice queens'.

Of the 29 previous men, you mean? One would hope!

I didn't need to teach Mr. Amethyst one little thing about kissing, but I did have to teach him to hug for no reason. It seems that some people come from hugging families, and some don't. He's a quick learner though!

Oh, Amethyst--I hate hugging!
Or at least from people other than DH. And I'm opposed to PDAs entirely.

I had the hardest time in my martial arts class where I had to grab my partner around the neck or whatever. It literally made me freak out and my hands to sweat just thinking about close contact.

Among my friends, a great joke is to give me a big hug when they see me, because they know I recoil.

sigh. Not a hugger!

Having been retired (and away from most people) for several years I am now not averse to hugging if there is verbal agreement from me and other beforehand.

Sorry I was not clearer. Our "hugging family" respected everyone's space. We only hugged one another - consenting family members. Husband only hugs me.

My family were and are not casual-acquaintance-huggers, air-kissers, etc. If I feel so grateful or affectionate toward a friend that I want to hug them, I open my arms first and wait for them to respond - or not. And I would not make a sad face if they didn't respond in kind.

Ahhhh come on now...

I have to admit...I love to hug and be hugged. I can tell if someone likes that type of contact or not by their body language.
When I 'feel' the love...I hug the puddin' out of 'em.

I'm a hugger. Basically cold family in a fairly cold region, then years more in new England which made whatever came before seem like Greece or Italy.

In the 60s-70s in California I learned how much more satisfying physical, non-sexual affectionate relationships are and I never looked back. Other than my brother and sister, the only physically cold person who is in my life now is my dance partner. She wants to be warm, but says "Swedes are cold- it's too late for me". In a way this is fine, it is kind of a defense against the intimacy of the dance carrying over life.

Some men don't like to hug with other men, so I pass if that seems clear enough. I do feel odd though, hugging some guy's wife or girlfriend and not him. Starts to make it look sexual.

Ha

Great icons!

I grew up in a non-touchy family, so my body language (I'm told) can be standoffish. But I like hugs! I really appreciate when someone offers, and usually don't mind at all just being suddenly hugged. So all you huggers out there, don't necessarily write off the shy-seeming people.

It's easier if I start hugging people first, but well, I'm kinda shy.

Hug and be hugged is what I say. Not enough hugging in the world these days, it's a dying art.

Wasn't Sir Hugalot a knight of the Round Table? I seem to remember that the roundest knight was Sir Cumference.
