Ten fun facts about kissing

Lips that kiss

I saw this on All4Women and just had to share.

1. The word “kiss” derives from the German word “kussjan.”

2. The average person spends 15 days kissing throughout the course of their lives. (wow)

3. Making out for one minute burn 26 calories.

4. A peck on the cheek can raise a person’s hormone levels enough to shorten their life by a minute. (holy crap)

5. “Roulant une pelle,” is the French translation for the tongue kiss. It means “rolling a shovel.” (haha)

6. Kissing in public in Naples was punishable by death in the 1500s. (yikes)

7. The first same-sex kiss onscreen was in the 1922 film Manslaughter.

8. In 1990, Alfred Wolfman kissed 8001 people in eight hours. (crazy)

9. In 2011 Matt Daley and Bobby Canciello made out for nearly 33 hours, breaking the Guiness World Record.

10. One kiss can transmit around 278 types of bacteria. (gross)

Silly but fun.

  1. Dear kissing blogger,

    A day without you is like a day without sunshine. And a day without sunshine is like a day without orange juice. Orange juice and candy doesn’t usually fall from the sky around this time of year, but when I read your blogs it makes me feel like a twinkie on the inside. May the forces of nature be on your side and let it rain down jellybeans on your doorstep from henceforth and forevermore.
