The 80 million microbes – indispensable microorganisms that are invisible to the naked eye – exchanged during a kiss help to maintain your resistance. How about that?
By kissing you ingest a large amount of ‘foreign’ microbes, which ensures a large biodiversity in your body and that is exactly what you want. Compare it to an ecosystem: the more variation, the greater the chance that organisms will survive.
While French kissing, even more physically happens: your blood pressure and heart rate rise, your breathing accelerates and your saliva production increases enormously, which cleans the teeth.
Male saliva contains testosterone, an aphrodisiac. The more kissing, the more testosterone the woman ingests and the more sense she gets. That’s one of the reasons men like wet kisses.
Another reason is that the man can determine all kinds of things from her saliva, for example whether she is in her fertile period.
Kissing makes you more attractive in the long run. Because kissing stimulates your circulation, your cells get more oxygen, which has a rejuvenating effect. In addition, you train your jaw and cheek muscles, which keeps the skin tighter.
As icing on the cake, you also fall off. Not because you are so enthusiastic and wild, but because of all kinds of chemical processes that start during French kissing.
The average French kiss lasts about ten seconds. Europeans and South Americans turn out to be the most passionate kissers.
Funnily enough, kissing isn’t all over the world; this is how Eskimos press their noses together. In parts of China, kissing on the mouth is even considered repulsive.
Also kissing animals. For example, monkeys kiss when they seek comfort, greet each other or are startled. Bonobos even practice French kissing, but that makes them the only animal species.
