Why People kiss
What happens when a man and a woman kiss?
That is to say, what happens, to the various parts of the body when two people in love join their lips in bliss? Years ago, before our biologists knew of the existence of the glands in our bodies, one writer quoted a scientist as saying that “kissing is pleasant because the teeth, jawbones and lips are full of nerves, and when the lips meet an electric current is generated”.
What nonsense! What utter nonsense! In the first place, two people kiss because they are satisfying a hunger within them, a hunger that is as natural as the hunger for food, water and knowledge. It is the hunger for sex that drives them to each other. After that hunger has been satiated, then comes the hunger for a home, for children and for marital happiness.
This hunger is instinctive, that is, we are born with it, all of us, and we cannot learn it or acquire it in any way.
