2.It’s healthy

Kissing apparently increases one’s immunity by releasing antibodies that kill bacteria.

Kissing can also help in the fight against cavities by increasing saliva which washes the teeth.

3.Lowers stress

Kissing decreases the stress hormone cortisol and instead increases serotonin levels in the brain.

4.Pleasure

Kissing increases the levels of oxytocin in the body which helps in calming someone down. It further increases pleasure through the release of dopamine.

5.Kissing boosts self-esteem

According to a German study, men that received a juicy kiss before work made more money. The men studied were described to be more productive at work because they did not feel emotionally distressed. The connection between feeling loved and connected is what helped boost their self-esteem.
