It's In The Kiss - Kissing Facts

Since I'm still recovering from the flu, I thought I'd post some kissing facts.

Your lips are 100 times more sensitive than the tips of your fingers

A real kiss quickens your pulse to 100 beats in a minute

A long-lasting kiss quickens the pulse and heightens level of hormones in human’s blood so much that it shortens the lifespan by almost a minute

One little kiss burns up to 3 calories. The longer the kiss...the better the exercise!

Men who kiss their wives every morning before going to work live 5 years longer than men who don't. Pucker up guys!

70% of people aged 16 to 24 years had their first kiss by age 15, whereas only 46% of their parents had smooched by the same age

Many women like men in uniform. Statistics show that women prefer to kiss:
39% - military men
37% - lawers
27% - accountants
14% - athletes

An average woman kisses about 79 men before getting married

An average person spends two weeks of his or her life kissing

The Kiss

Who doesn’t love a good kiss? Whether soft and sensual, or body to the wall and animalistic, there’s something to be said about locking lips with someone. In these hard economic times it’s nice to know you can kiss anywhere and it doesn’t cost a thing. You don’t have to go anywhere expensive, either. Steal a kiss out in the rain. Under the moon and stars. As you pass one another in the hallway. Or when you’re all snuggled up together in bed.

Have you ever watched a movie where two people kiss and you think I so want to be kissed like that! Maybe it was a slow, lazy kiss with mouths closed. Maybe it was a clothes-pulling, passionate open mouth with plenty of tongue kiss that got your blood pumping and pulse racing. A kiss is a beautiful expression and there’s really no wrong way to do it. Plus, the more you practice the better you get.

Below are a few facts about kissing and a link to more fun facts:

The science of kissing is called philematology.

Approximately two-thirds of people tip their head to the right when they kiss.

French kissing involves all 34 muscles in the face.

Kissing is good for teeth.

It is possible for a woman to reach an orgasm through kissing.





Hubby likes to give me butterfly kisses, which inspired the title of my book.

Butterfly Kisses blurb -

Butterfly Kisses - what better way to be kissed?

With the love and support from her fiancé, Bryan, Charlene prepares for an important swim competition. Another win and she goes to the Olympics. Nothing prepares her for the tragedy that follows.

Charlene awakens in the hospital, unable to feel her legs or remember what happened. News from the doctor is anything but good, and her Olympic dreams slip away. Bryan refuses to leave her side and will do anything to raise her darkening spirits.

More than her desire to swim again, Charlene yearns to feel Bryan's signature butterfly kisses grace along her inner thighs.

Butterfly Kisses is available on Kindle

Have a lovely rest of your day!

So sorry you had the flu - but what a great topic to spend your recovery contemplating, fun post. I love butterfly kisses too - good luck with the release!

All of these made me pretty bitter that I've probably kissed for five minutes in my entire life (speaking romantically ofc)but my brain keeps going back to that "IT CUTS YOUR LIFE BY ONE MINUTE" one and I feel better now. =P Y'all can go ahead and die before me~

Although I'm calling BS on the 79 men before marriage one. That...sounds extremely high for an average. You'd have to be including every male family member and then some o_O

Cool post, & I LOVE the rainbow lipstick. Funny that one commenter thought the average of 79 was too high. I was thinking it was too low...

Thanks :) It was fun to look up the facts. Made flu recovery more enjoyable, that's for sure! lol.

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by! I'm super late in responding to blog comments - my apologies. Lose a few days and it takes weeks to get back on track! lol.
