People kiss to express their feelings. Many people believe that a kiss projects a higher degree of intimacy than even sex. It turns out that not only does it help express feelings but it also has many other advantages. When we kiss, we exchange saliva and germs that may be good for our health. Therefore, kissing strengthens our immune system. Even during the most modest of kisses, our lips still produce additional amounts of saliva, which neutralizes the acid in the mouth that causes cavities and washes away food particles stuck in our teeth. A recent study showed that, while kissing, our body produces the “happiness hormone” oxytocin, endorphins (which improve mood) and dopamine (which contributes to psychological convergence). You must kiss for at least 20 seconds to get all these health benefits.
