10 Things You Didn’t Know About Kissing

  1. Kissing can cause cavities. If you kiss someone who may have bad bacteria in his/her mouth, their saliva could pass the bacteria on to you, thereby causing cavities.
  2. A recent study found that when deciding whether to kiss someone, women pay much closer attention than men do to the breath and teeth of their partner.
  3. There’s very little romance in a collection of 80 million teeming bacteria. But that, in addition to affection, is what’s being exchanged in a 10-second kiss.
  4. Kissing can transmit cavity-causing bacteria to your newborn. Infants are not born with the bacteria that cause cavities, but that they are infected most often by the transfer of saliva from their parents.
  5. Ninety percent of people in the world engage in kisses on the lips.
  6. Kissing Record. In September 1990 Alfred Wolfram kissed 8,001 people in 8 hours (over 16 people a minute) at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
  7. First Movie Kiss. John C. Rice kissed May Irwin in 1896 and became the first couple to be recorded kissing in the film The Kiss.
  8. You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.
  9. The average person will spend an estimated 20,160 minutes kissing in their lifetime.
  10. First Kiss. 50% of all people have their first kiss before the age of 14.
