“A kiss is just a kiss” wrote Herman…

. “A kiss is just a kiss” wrote Herman Hupfield in 1931. But now 80 years later we discover there is more to a kiss than just a kiss. The official book on kissing has been published: The Science of Kissing: What Our Lips Are Telling Us. Evidently, locking lips is less about lust than about trust and honesty, researchers tell us. Did you know two out of three people tilt their heads to the right when they make a move to smooch? That should make for quite a few soreheads. Even the Bible is referenced. In the Song of Solomon, the Shulamite sang of her lover, “let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; for his love is better than wine.” A kiss should be an expression of love, but there is one kiss that will ever live in infamy: the kiss of treachery, the kiss of Judas that led to the crucifixion of Jesus.
