Poll question: Kissing...
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 12:29 PM by reyd reid reed
the whole mistletoe thing got me thinking about it...and I happen to like kissing.

A lot. Just for the sake of it.

What motivates you?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. It's kind of a bizarre ritual if you ask me
Not that I hate it or anything, but what the hell is up with that? You stick your lips together for a bit and then let out a "smack". Sometimes you lick each other's tongues for a while.

Are we born with this concept? How did it start? And why do we still do it?

7. A lot of things involved in human procreation are bizarre rituals...
...if you break them down and take an objective look at them. Like, say, an extra-terrestrial would. I mean...look at dancing. For that matter, look at sex.

But damn...

It's nature, though. It's the built-in wiring so why fight it?

30. It started, oddly enough, (or so I've heard)
As a method for Roman men to determine whether or not their wives had been drinking while they were out.

However, I've also heard that it's an attempt to simulate affectionate grooming seen amongst other animals.

My money is on the drunk Romans...

34. The Roman thing is weird
I would figure that the Roman men were all trashed anyway, how would they be able to tell?

36. Dunno know about that
Odder still, I've heard that story several times from "people who would know" ie well-educated historians, trivia junkies, etc.

However, I just did a quick Google search to find some sourcing and didn't really see much on a cursory glance.

SO maybe that's not true???

9. my parrot just learned the kissing smack.
she is sitting on my knee, right now, for the first time learning that mom will lean over and give her a kiss on the beak prety much every time she makes that noise.
she likes the "anticipatory qualities"

Go to a florist and send him some pretty red flowers...with mistletoe as the predominant greenery.

69. as a teen i was into deep, deep kissing.
now i'm rather more into lite kissing -- gently toching toungues right at the lips sort of thing.

i'm less into inhaling someones tongue down my throat.

now, ears, throat, back of the neck, knees, -- most of the rest seems pretty edible.
