(Tracy) It was Halloween night 2013, and it was our first one to be kidless. After the darling neighborhood kids had completed their candy rounds, we headed out the door in borrowed costumes to meet some friends. This is when we began to discuss making-out.  Bruce always jokes about the kissing contest he won in college.

Yes, it's true. He won a kissing contest. Before the contest, he "interviewed" all his best girl friends on what makes a good kisser. They said things like, "Look her in the eyes without being creepy."...and..."Go in slow."...or..."Gently touch her face." Anyway, you can either be grossed out, or laugh, but he is a really good kisser! So I said to him, "How many couples do you think really make-out for the sake of making-out, years into their marriages?" This led to a conversation that led to an idea…

Why not create a make-out moment of the day? As of today, Bruce is up ahead slightly!

Winner Must Rules: 

  • Completely surprise their partner
  • Be extremely creative
  • Beat the other to the kiss per day
  • The partner receiving the kiss must be happy for the winner and kiss back like they mean it!! (We had to work on this one at first because we are so competitive!!)
  • One point goes to the winner of the day (but kissing is certainly allowed at anytime beyond without points)
  • Feel free to skip a day, so it can continue to be a playful, organic movement towards intimacy.  
  • Keep in mind, this is supposed to be fun.  

Kissing Statistics and Tidbits

  • One in five (18%) married couples don't kiss for an entire week, while two in five married people (40%) kiss for just five seconds or less when they are going to be intimate. (http://www.bhf.org.uk/default.aspx?page=13444) 
  • A Redbook poll done in April 2011 reported that 79% of women said they don’t kiss their husbands as often as they would like.
  • Some couples spend more time watching kissing on TV than actually kissing!!
  • An average person spends two weeks of his or her life kissing. 

Potential Benefits

  • Sensitivity of the lips is 100 - 200 times higher than that of the fingers.
  • A brief romantic kiss will burn about 2-3 calories.
  • A solid French kiss will burn more than 5 calories.
  • French kissing can use up to 29 facial muscles. 
  • An intense kiss for 90 seconds will elevate blood pressure and cause the pulse rate to go up, increase the level of hormones in the blood, thus reducing life by about one minute.  (Smile)
  • Men who kiss their wives each morning before going to work live 5 years longer than men who don't.  O.K guys...
