Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

For your Saturday enjoyment.

10 Quirky Facts About Kissing. From

1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.

I’m ambidextrous…I can go both ways

2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that’s a rigorous workout!

Will need to start adding ‘making-out with Sam’ to my ‘Today’s Workouts’ posts

3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.

Yeah but can they dust for lip prints…other than on CSI

4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.

Well that explains why Sam and I never get sick

5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.

Shoot we get that many hours in during an off year

6. Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.

X marks the spot

7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.

Now if I could just mix kissing in during my runs

8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.

Honey I want to see that list and you better not be above average in this case!

9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don’t.

Sweetie, after all the expenses of the last few weeks, you better start puckering-up more in the mornings. I need a raise.

10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you’ve beaten that record, it’s time to celebrate!

Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey are wimps…we can totally crush that time…I’m an Ironman for Pete’s sake and you are the Queen of 12 hour labors
