Why Kissing Is Good for Your Health
Kissing, that intimate act of two people pressing their lips and mouths together, with or without tongue, is the most gentle and yet most revealing sexual act. How a person kisses and how they respond to being kissed says volumes about a person: how sexually skillful they are; comfortable with their sexuality; and how much of themselves they want to give.
In addition to being the gateway to other sexual acts, kissing, it turns out is very good for your overall physical and mental health. Here are some little-known reasons why you should kiss often, and extract the most benefits out of every kiss.
Kissing encourages romantic bonding. Kissing is a way of romantically bonding to another person, bonding being an important part of any relationship. Each time you kiss, your bond grows stronger, making you feel more grounded and stable in your personal relationship.
Kissing burns calories. Kissing is indeed a form of exercise. Not only does it promote flexibility and tone the muscles of the face, lips, and cheeks, kissing genuinely burns calories. Kissing for twenty minutes might not burn calories like the same time spent on a treadmill, but it will burn the same number of calories you took in eating a half dozen M&M’s.
