5 Reasons Why Kissing Is Good For You

Here's something you already knew:
Kissing is pretty much the best thing in the entire world. And it actually does you good.
As if you really needed another excuse to smooch.

1. Burns calories

Sure, kissing may not burn as many calories as, say, running a mile, but it does pump up your metabolism to about twice its usual rate.

2. Boosts bonding

When we kiss, both men and women produce the hormone oxytocin. It's often called the 'love hormone' because it causes us (particularly females) to bond. We kiss the ones we love, and love the ones we kiss.

3. Spurs arousal and enhances sex

Frequent sex can enhance everything from heart health to your self-esteem, and there's no better starter for sex than kissing!


How often do you feel exhausted at the end of the day? Blame it on your body's natural response to stress. Cortisol is our stress hormone and it has a negative effect on our immune system and brain health. So if you can lower stress and reduce those negative effects by simply stealing a kiss with your partner, do it as often as you can.


Kissing releases endorphins and endorphins make you happy. Give yourself a happiness boost with a little smooching,

So what are you waiting for?
