Here's some fun kissing trivia, interesting even if you don't spend a lot of time kissing. One source suggests that we spend two weeks over the course of a lifetime kissing. I certainly hope its longer than that.
Did you know that the practice of a man kissing his wife at the end of the day started with the ancient Romans? Those gladiators wanted to taste their ladies lips to make sure they hadn’t been drinking that homemade wine all day!
Did you know that the average woman will kiss 79 guys before she's married?
Did you know watching chick flicks boosts your hormones in a way that leaves you feeling frisky for kissing?
Did you know a man who kisses his lady goodbye when he leaves for work every morning averages a higher income than a guy who doesn't?
Apparently the term French kiss came into use in America in 1923 as a slur on French culture, which was thought to be shockingly oversexed. On the other hand, in France, they don’t call it a French kiss. The proper term: a tongue or a soul kiss.
Who thinks of this stuff anyway?
