When you hear that about 80 million bacteria are exchanged in a 10 second pash you could think 'Ewww, never kissing again.' But read on to get the good news and continue enjoying lip to lip contact.

Reasons why you will benefit from kissing more -
1. Boosts immunity
Let's start by thinking again about those 80 million germs. Research has discovered that when couples kiss regularly they produce antibodies, lots of antibodies, to fight off the foreign bacteria. This results in a higher immunity to germs generally, you know the germs on the supermarket trolley handle and the door knob you just touched.

2. Reduces allergies
Kissing can help reduce nasal and skin allergies. A study found fewer IgE antibodies (these trigger sneezing and other symptoms of allergy) in the blood of participants after a 30 minute session of kissing whilst listening to soft music.

3. Reduces stress
Kissing reduces production of cortisol, the stress hormone. Simple solution to handling stress.

4. Burns calories
Kissing passionately burns around 90 to 120 calories (360 to 480 kj) an hour.

Other ways to burn approximately 120 calories (depends on various factors including the intensity and speed at which you do the task) include -
20 minutes of general house cleaning
15 minutes of scrubbing floors
15 to 20 minutes of mowing the lawn

Which activity will you choose to burn off some calories?

5. Improves mood
Kissing increases your oxytocin level. This increases feelings of love, trust and attachment. Kissing also increases the level of serotonin which makes you feel happier.

It looks like there are numerous reasons to indulge in some passionate kissing and that germ exchange thing which may have put you off isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as your partner is in reasonably good health.
