Reasons why kissing is good

for you: 1. It helps prevent tooth decay

(better than brushing your

teeth?)

Dr. Peter Gorden, Dental

Advisor at the British Dental

Association, explains. ¡°After eating, your mouth is full of

sugar solution and acidic saliva,

which cause plaque build up.

Kissing is nature¡¯s own

cleaning process¡±, he adds. ¡°It

stimulates saliva flow and brings plaque levels down to

normal.¡± I asked my dentist

and after he blushed, he

agreed.

2. It relieves tension.

A passionate kiss is a great relaxation technique, says

stress consultant, Michelle Kay

Mcnabb. ¡± When your mouth is

in a kissing position, you are

almost smiling and as our

emotions and body language are so closelylinked, it¡¯s

almost impossible to smile and

feel tense at the same time,¡±

she explains. ¡°Also, your

breathing becomes deeper and

your eyes close when you kiss; that¡¯s what you do when

you relax. It¡¯s a perfect way

to shut out the world.¡±

3. It helps you lose weight.

Just how long can you do

that? You need use 3000 calories to lose one pound, i.e.,

30,000 minutes, 500 hours¡­ ¡°A

long kiss makes the

metabolism burn up sugar

faster than usual,¡± says Claire

Potter. ¡°The calories burned depend on theintensity, but

you can rely on 10 calories for

every 10 minutes.¡±

4. It slows the aging process.

¡°Kissing helps to tone your

cheek and jaw muscles, so they¡¯re less likely to sag,¡± says

Cosmo¡¯s Fitness Consultant,

Claire Potter.

It increases fitness levels.

(Okay, now there is really no

reason why you can¡¯t start some exercise now).

¡°Your heart is pumping, your

pulse is racing¡­¡±If kissing is

exciting, you release

adrenaline into the

bloodstream and your heart pumps more blood around

your body,¡± says Dr. Susan

Hotchkies. ¡°It¡¯s a great

cardiovascular workout.¡±

5. It¡¯s a good indication of

what¡¯s to come. (Make sure he or she is not married, please).

Kissing a new guy or gal gives

you the perfect opportunity

to check out his or her

pheromones ¨C the chemical

messengers that signal sexual attraction. ¡± The first kiss is

always a good way to work

out if there¡¯s any chemistry

between you, ¡°says Paul

Brown, a sexual and marital

therapist. ¡± In humans, it¡¯s thought that smells plays a

vital part in subconscious

attraction, and if your

pheremones aren¡¯t ¡®in tune¡¯,

you¡¯re unlikely to hit off!

6. It boosts self-esteem. There¡¯s nothing better than a

passionate kiss for a major

dose of feel good factor. ¡°In

theory, when you¡¯re kissing,

you¡¯re happy. And when

you¡¯re happy, you feel good about yourself,¡± says

psychotherapist Paul Zeal. Don¡¯t leave kissing out of

romance. Kiss someone special

today and see if your love life

improves!
