I`m pretty sure herpes spreads in another direction.... The Southern direction to be exact.


You can actually get herpes in both your southern region and your northern one. Same STD, same nasty looking bumps. There's different types of herpes, but in general, they all give you the same nasty looking bumps which will ensure that if someone takes a good look, nothing is going to happen. Unless they don't care, but then that makes you wonder why they would be okay with it.

Really you do know that you can't get HIV or AIDS from kissing... The common cold can be acquired by almost any activity regardless of kissing...

most of your viruses or diseases are sexually transmitted of direct contact blood to blood transmission.

Can't get AIDS from kissing.. XD
(unless both of them are bleeding at the gums....
+one would need to have AIDS first xD)


1) In other words you can catch it. In fact there is at least one confirmed case I've heard of.
2) And so the other 5 diseases you can catch it even if neither has the disease yet?

The only STD on that list that you can get from kissing is Syphillis. That is, unless both people have severely bleeding gums. You could even have unprotected sex with someone who has herpes and not catch it if its in remission.

I find it hilarious that people try their hardest to spread ignorance about something that serious.

Six health benefits of kissing

http://yahoo.match.com/y/article.aspx?articleid=13093&TrackingID=526103&BannerID=1379148

Benefit #1: Your pearly whites stay cleaner

Though it’s certainly no replacement for brushing your teeth, kissing can break down oral plaque and prevent cavities by stimulating the creation of saliva, which helps wash bacteria away from the tooth’s surface. “Kissing is nature’s cleansing process,” says Heidi Hausauer, spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry. “Saliva washes out the mouth and helps remove the cavity-causing food particles that accumulate after meals.” The minerals in saliva also help rebuild tooth enamel, thereby preventing decay. So not only does kissing give you cleaner teeth, but you could actually end up saving money on your dental bills, too.


Benefit #2: Keep a younger-looking face as you age

Speaking of saving money, you can say goodbye to Botox and acid peels (or at least cut down on those pricey anti-aging treatments). Ever notice how happy, loving couples still retain an air of youth, even as they grow older? The answer could be down to frequent kissing. Sex therapist and author Dr. Ava Cadell notes that “kissing can give you a facelift. We use over 30 facial muscles while kissing, which helps to keep muscles smooth and tight and prevents your cheeks from sagging.” Laurel House, author of QuickieChick’s Cheat Sheet to Life, Love, Food, Fitness, Fashion and Finance — on a Less-Than-Fabulous Budget, also likens kissing to a toning session for your face: “Like working out the muscles in your abs, working out your facial muscles can help tone and tighten them, minimizing the visible signs of aging.”


Benefit #3: A revved-up metabolism

In addition to providing a facial workout, kissing can also help you lose inches from your waistline, too. As you lean in for the kiss, you may feel as though your heart’s racing. It’s not just your imagination; it is beating faster. “As the heart beats faster, it releases adrenaline and other neurotransmitters in the blood. The boost in adrenaline increases your metabolism and helps burn extra calories,” says Dr. Varnado.

During a really passionate kiss, you can burn anywhere from two to five calories per minute, which is double your normal resting rate. Dr. Cadell put this to the test on the TV show, The Doctors. By hooking a kissing couple up to a heart monitor and calorie counters, Dr. Cadell found that over the course of an hour, they burned a combined total of 575 calories — or 287.5 calories each.

While you certainly can’t rely on kissing to help you lose a significant amount of weight, it might give your metabolism an extra boost and help shed a pound or two.



Benefit #4: Your immune system gets a healthy boost

Just like working out, kissing can boost your immunity. So if you’re a germophobe, listen up: “Swapping spit means swapping germs, and that is nature’s natural form of vaccination,” explains Dr. Varnado. “Being exposed to others’ germs causes your body makes antibodies against those germs, which can in turn lead to immunity and prevent illness.” This all holds true as long as you’re not kissing anyone with any diseases or cold sores present in his or her mouth, so make sure the object of your affection isn’t coming down with the flu before you pucker up.


Benefit #5: Improved mood and decreased stress levels overall

Ever notice how you feel after a good make-out session? It’s like you’re floating on cloud nine, all your cares melt away, and you feel like you could do anything. That’s because kissing releases nature’s antidepressant, oxytocin. Dr. Joshua Gizersky, founder and medical director of Vitality Logix Internal Medicine, says that “a passionate kiss will spike oxytocin, leading to better sex and orgasm.”

But kissing doesn’t just increase the production of feel-good chemicals in our bodies — it lowers our cortisol and cholesterol levels, too. “A study of cohabiting and married couples showed that an increased frequency of kissing decreases stress and cholesterol levels. Stress is a well-known risk factor for heart disease,” says Dr. Varnado. And a healthy heart means a longer life!


Benefit #6: A natural source of pain relief

Last but not least, kissing provides a natural form of pain relief. Before reaching for an aspirin the next time you’ve got a headache, grab your honey and lay on a big smooch instead. Dr. Varnado notes that “kissing releases natural chemicals in the body called endorphins, which can be more powerful than morphine to relieve pain” — without the all the negative side effects of using a narcotic, of course.

It seems that you already have all the tools and chemicals necessary to improve your health, feel better, and manage stress… right inside your own body. And all you need to do is plant a few kisses first!



I call bullshit on all 6 of these points.

to get AIDS virus from saliva, i heard you'd have to drink at least a gallon of it. (not sure how that was found out...)
the reason why i didnt comment on the others is because i don't know much about the others, so i said nothing.
