Top 5 Curiosities You Didn’t Know About Kissing
Kissing can be fun, romantic, innocent and cute and it’s a subject much more complex than many of us think. There are lots of things you don’t know about kissing and they can be quite interesting. So how about we learn something new together?
Eskimo kisses are a myth.
For example, did you know that Eskimo people don’t actually rub their noses in place of a kiss? It’s all just a myth. They kiss the same as everybody else and there is nothing real about the story we all seem to believe is true.
Kissing is more powerful than morphine.
When you’re kissing, you release endorphins that are 200 times more powerful than the effects of morphine. So the next time you’re in pain, try a little kissing instead of taking a pill. Of course, it would have to be a meaningful and passionate kiss for it to have such an effect. Who needs drugs when we have kissing?
Kissing burns calories.
In case you haven’t noticed, you’re using a ton of muscles when you’re kissing. For example, a French kiss uses 34 muscles and this will burn quite a few calories. It can total up to 26 calories per minute so instead of going to the gym you can exercise from home.
Kissing is illegal is some areas.
This might sound crazy but kissing is actually a crime punishable by law in some places. For example, in Indiana it’s illegal for men with mustaches to “habitually kiss human beings” and in Ceder Rapids, Iowa, it’s forbidden to kiss strangers. Watch out or the cops the next time you visit these areas.
Kissing brings bacteria.
When you think about it, it’s actually very logical. One kiss can pass 278 types of bacteria and if a kiss is long enough you could end up with 10 million bacteria into your body. Of course, we all have bacteria in our organism so it’s not exactly dangerous to add a few more.
