Buckle up as we embark on a journey and reveal 6 intriguing facts about kissing. sixguys will not only make you a good kisser, but also a knowledgeable one.

1. French Kiss

Is French kissing really from France?

The origins of the French kiss is far too often a misconception to many. As the name suggests, many believes that it was indeed the work of a French chap. But it's simply invalid. The French kiss is a term for a passionate kiss where tongues touch. Many suggests that this term is just a stereotypical judgment made about the French people for their reputation of lust and promiscuous nature. The use of this term can be traced back to as early as the 1820s but became commonly used in America in 1920s. The French were labeled as sensual and promiscuous in the old good days, hence the origin of French Kiss is credited to them just as the country itself is well-known to be the city of love. Also, they were literally the first few to acknowledge public affection. Don't you just love the French?

2. The Science of Kissing - Philematology

Kissing - An Explosive Reaction of Chemistry

A smooch, a french or a peck. Scientists call it philematology, the science of kissing. Believe it or not, kissing is also a part of science.

The human lips are the most sensitive area of the entire human body where the slimmest layer of the skin lies. It is packed with the most densely populated sensory neurons, more than the fingertip or even the genitalia. Now, who says hitting the G-spot is the most crucial of all? Think again.

Also,the sensory neurons release pheromones, the chemical messengers that signal sexual attraction, as well as a series of neural messages and chemicals which are able to create intense euphoric sensations. So, don't underestimate the power of kissing. In short, kissing makes you feel good.

3. Kissing burns your calories.

Why run when you can kiss?

You need an average of 3000 calories to lose one pound of fat. A long and passionate kiss triggers your metabolism to burn sugar faster than average. The burning of the calories is dependent on the intensity of your workout. An intense kiss burns 12 calories every 5 seconds, which means you can lose a pound by kissing for 5 consecutive hours.

4. Kissing and muscles

Kissing requires unique muscular coordination, much like any kind of fitness workout. It is known that a total of 34 facial muscles and 112 postural muscles are used during a kiss. Not just a kiss, but a long passionate kiss. The intensive stimulation of the facial muscles smooths the skin tissues to help prevent wrinkles. It can also help to stabilize cardiovascular muscles and increase blood circulation. The continuous motion of kissing helps to tone the cheek and jaw muscles.
