A kiss may be one of the most important things you get right at the beginning of every relationship. And also one of the most important things to maintaining that relationship once it’s begun. Considering all that, I don’t think nearly enough is ever said about the importance of kissing. So we’re going to break it all down into 10 big reasons why kissing rules your love, life, and sex.
1. A Kiss ‘Seals the Deal’
Every man can use a little hand to attract a woman, and science suggests that dopamine can make women more receptive to him. One option is to do an activity that provokes excitement, which will certainly kick up a little extra dopamine. Then, at the end of the night, the best way to seal the deal is to give her a good kiss. The kiss will be a new (and hopefully exhilarating) experience that will make her feel special and desirable, which is exactly how she will remember you the next time she thinks of you.
2. You’re Better At Kissing Than You Realize
The more you practice at anything the better you get. And while you’ve had more practice sleeping than just about anything else, kissing is not all that far from the list beyond that. Accord to the research of Psychology Today, they estimate the average person spends at least 20,160 minutes kissing in a lifetime.
3. She Doesn’t Like it (Too) Sloppy
According to surveys around the world, when asked about the sloppiness of a kiss, men seem to prefer a little more saliva (and tongue) than women. With this in mind, don’t allow yourself to get too carried away when things start to get hot, as you may inadvertently turn her cold in the process.
4. More Kissing Equals More Sex
Some men would prefer to skip the kissing and foreplay and move straight to the mambo, but you do so at your own risk. According to research, every kiss passes a certain amount of testosterone to your partner, and testosterone is a building block of women’s mojo (libido). So, the more you kiss her, the more sex she may desire in return.
5. Kissing Gets Rid of Her Headache
The act of kissing releases endorphins in the body, which a natural form of morphine. In other words, it makes anything that hurts feel just a bit better. In addition, kissing also dilates the blood vessels which can help minimize the pain associated with headaches and menstrual cramps. So when she says, “Not tonight honey I’ve got a…” You can literally “kiss” that headache goodbye.
6. Kissing Starts Relationships
You’ve got the ride, swagger, and six pack, but if you forget to brush and floss, she may not even give you the chance to get on first base. Women pay very close attention to the oral hygiene of any man, as she considers this a clue to his overall health and worth. So if you want to start a relationship off right – you know what to do.
7. Kissing is Hygiene
For all you health nuts out there this one is for you. Kissing is good for your health. Okay, so kissing may not burn all that many calories, but it does round up a couple shot glasses worth of saliva. And saliva is good for you, considering it helps rid the mouth of harmful plaque and bacteria.
8. Kissing Saves Relationships
Surveys suggest that no matter how much opposition is in your relationship – if you manage to make out on a regular basis, your relationship will better be able to handle those ups and downs.
9. Her Lips Are Key to Turning Her On
Where would you grab a woman in order to turn her on the quickest? Well, if you said breasts, butt or crotch, you’re pretty far off. The most sensitive part of any woman’s body is the lips. In fact, of the 8,000 nerve endings in a woman’s clitoris, that does not even come close to the 10,000 found in her lips.
10. Kissing and Food Go Together
The act of kissing is a mystery to science, yet most theorize that it has something to do with our prehistoric family line and how we were fed as infants. Baby food did not always come in a can, so babies were mouth fed by their parents with pre-chewed food. This makes the idea of kissing an act of kindness, and also one we associate with something ‘appetizing’ – and this is yet another reason to always want to have fresh breath before you get into it.
