Snogging, necking, smooching, sucking face, playing a bit of tonsil-tennis, call it what you will, kissing is one of the best things about being a couple. 

Just as you thought it couldn’t get any better, here’s some great news – kissing isn’t just oodles of fun, it’s also good for you. No kidding!

HERE ARE 5 UNEXPECTED BENEFITS OF KISSING

IT BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Keen to give your immune system a bit of a boost? Pucker up! It turns out that all that spit swapping (eeeuw, we know, but it happens!) is a great way to fend off unwanted illness. Studies have found that couples who kiss regularly have higher levels of infection-fighting antibody immunoglobulin A. That's science speak for cranking up your immune system to 11.

IT DECREASES PAIN
And not just the emotional kind either! Kisses that get your heat racing deliver a double helping of pain-reducing adrenaline and feel-good endorphins to the brain. These hormones are great at supressing moderate amounts of pain, so if you were, say, nursing a bit of a headache, you should be good to go after a nice, long kiss.

IT LOWERS STRESS
When you experience stress, your body releases a nasty little hormone called cortisol, which is to blame for everything from belly fat to poor immunity. Guess what? Kissing reduced cortisol levels as well!

IT FIGHTS WRINKLES
Are you concerned about a bit of droop around your jowls? Grab your partner and start kissing! Regular, vigorous snogging is the perfect non-surgical way to keep your facial muscles nice and supple.

IT BURNS CALORIES
Okay, let’s be honest here, you aren’t going to drop a dress size from the odd kiss every now and again, but studies have found that a nice, active make-out session will turn up your resting metabolic rate to twice it’s normal speed. So, next time you’re vegging on the couch, grab your partner and crank out the volume on your metabolisms during that commercial break.

There you have it – five scientifically backed reasons why you should go ahead and schedule some kissing time with your beau.
