Pucker up! July 6th is the day to plant an extra wet one on your loved one. In case you need a reason to get in the mood, here are two good ones:
Kissing is good for your health. A kiss works 34 muscles! It also stimulates the immune system and contributes to a better resistance to infection and allergies. And that's not all: by stimulating the production of endorphins and oxytocin, a kiss stabilizes your heart rate and improves well-being.
Kissing strengthens commitment. Kissing promotes the secretion of hormones that form attachment. Therefore, love grows the more kisses you exchange! So kissing can rekindle the flame in a relationship or strengthen ties of affection. Kissing, even after years together, is one of the surest ways to strengthen relationships!
And here are some fun facts about kissing:
- Kissing shares more than just emotion - on average 50 million bacteria are exchanged during a French kiss.

- Two thirds of lovers lean their head to the right for kissing. Most close their eyes to better savor the moment.
- The 1926 film "Don Juan" holds the record for kissing with 127 on-screen kisses!
