Kissing is super sexy and fun but did you know that there are actual health benefits of kissing?!

Kissing your crush or significant other does more than just get your heart fluttering.

There are actual advantages to smooching that are good for your mind and body!

Read up on these health benefits of kissing and feel even better about puckering up for a smooch session!

1. Keep Your Weight down

Who knew one of the health benefits of kissing was that it could lead to a smaller waist?!

A study done by the University of Louisville found that when you’re engaged in a passionate kiss, you can burn up to two calories a minute!

Of course a fervent kissing session doesn’t compare to actually hitting a treadmill, it’s a pretty good reason to lock lips more often!

2. Keeps You Looking Young

I think we’ve all heard the saying that it takes more muscles to frown than smile but what about when we kiss?

According to sex therapist Dr.

Ava Cadell, it takes about 30 muscles to kiss so kissing can help keep the muscles in our faces toned and tight!

Whether you believe in Cadell’s theory or not, it’s not a bad idea to stimulate your facial muscles by engaging in a long, deep kiss!

3. Keep Your Mouth Healthy

We always want to make sure our breath is on point when we get close to someone and French kissing can actually help keep our mouths healthy!

Locking lips and tongues actually increases the production of saliva and helps rid the area of bacteria!

An increase in saliva doesn’t mean sloppy kisses, it means that serious smooch sessions help keep cavities and tooth decay away!

4. Keep Your Immune System Healthy

The next time you need a reason to kiss (like you need one!), think about how it can boost your immune system!

Anesthesiologist Dr.

Yael Vernado reports that the swapping of spit from kissing is essentially the swapping of germs which is like nature’s vaccination.

This means that every time you find yourself in a fervent kiss, you’re giving your libido and your immune system a big boost!
