tongue kissing

Whether you’re the type to speak in tongues, give people lip or master tongue-twisters, you’ll agree that kissing can be an enthralling experience if done with someone who knows their way around your lips.

While many tend to play down the importance of kissing, many s.e.xologists and doctors agree a passionate kiss can do wonders all around.

While we also know the integral part kissing plays during s.e.x, we’ve also discovered there are some health benefits to kissing.

According to the Better-Health magazine, these are some of the health benefits of kissing:

Metabolic boost

Kissing burns kilojoules. The more passionate the kiss, the greater the metabolic boost.

Healthier mouth

Saliva contains substances that fight bacteria, viruses, and fungi.


increases the flow of saliva, which helps keep the mouth, teeth, and gums healthy.

Increased immunity

Exposure to germs that inhabit your partner’s mouth strengthens your immune system.

Stress reduction

Kissing your partner, either tenderly or passionately, releases calming brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that reduce stress levels and soothe the mind.
