National Kissing Day!

Today is National Kissing Day, and in celebration, we thought we'd share with you a few fun facts about kissing! 

Although it may seem utterly ridiculous, it has been proven that kissing can in fact lower cholesterol levels and cause a decrease in stress levels, so if you're having a bad day at work kissing may make things a little better!

The longest recorded kiss in history was made earlier this year on Valentine's Day in Thailand by Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat, recorded at a whopping 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds! Isn't that absolutely crazy... how did they manage that?! Lots of practice we presume!

Kissing may seem natural, but it is quite a sport - using 34 facial muscles! That's a heck of a lot, and no wonder it can burn 2-3 calories... A passionate french kiss can burn up to 5! So, we say forget about the diet and get kissing, because its a damn healthy, beneficial activity!
