Kissing - the most beautiful way of expressing your love.

There are so many different ways to kiss, depending on who you're kissing.

But there are 11 things you didn't know about kissing that will make your mouth open in amazement.2

(Yes, I get the pun, there...) Learn these things and they'll leave you wanting to kiss more and wanting to quit kissing altogether at the same time!

1. Kissing is Good for You

Kissing is Good for You

The act of kissing is actually healthy for you!

(Take that, those of you opposed of great kissing!) Kissing actually improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.

So next time you have a headache and your hubby is wanting a little lovin', don't go for the Tylenol bottle, start kissing!

(Bet you'll make his night!)

2. Kissing is a Workout

Kissing is a Workout

While just a quick peck on the cheek uses only 2 muscles, a good french kiss is said to use 34 muscles in your face.

(That's almost all of your facial muscles if I'm not mistaken!) That being said, a romantic, but very short kiss will burn a couple calories, while a passionate french kiss can take care of 5 calories.2

Do this for one entire minute, and you'll burn about 26 calories!

Kiss for an hour and you can skip your trip to the gym since you will have burnt about 1,560 calories!

Talk about a reason to make out!

3. Eskimo Kisses Are Fake

Eskimo Kisses Are Fake

According to a video strait from the mouth of an Alaskan, the act of rubbing noses in place of a kiss doesn't exist.

He claims Hollywood has played a part in making this myth seem real, when in fact, it's a created story.2

He says he grew up in a very traditional family and has lived 67 years, and has never seen Eskimos rubbing noses.

Their kisses are the same as ours.

Save the nose rubbing for the dogs.
