A kiss is the touch or pressing of one's lips against another person or an object.

It means different things to different people, depending on the culture and context – a kiss can express various sentiments like respect, greeting, friendship, sexual attraction, love, passion, romance, sexual activity, sexual arousal, affection, peace and good luck, among many others.

We all kiss for one or more of the above reasons.

But how much do we know about kissing?

Here are 11 things most people do not know:

  1. The scientific word for the study of kissing is “philematology” while the scientific term for French kissing is “cataglottism.”

  10. In ancient Rome kisses were used to complete and sign personal contracts.
  11. When you kiss someone for the first time, the neurotransmitter dopamine is released. Neurotransmitter dopamine is a feel-good hormone that makes you crave more, but can also make you lose your appetite and make it very difficult for you to fall asleep.
