First Kiss More Memorable Than Sexual Encounter

Psychologists have found that most people can remember up to 90 percent of the details of their first kiss, a memory that is more powerful that their first sexual encounter.

From ABC News:

“Think about all those date-movies where that long-awaited first kiss brings sighs and heart flutters to the audience and seals the deal between the couples on the screen,” said Sarasota, Fla., psychologist LeslieBeth Wish.

“The lips are very sensitive tissue, with many nerve endings that signal reactions such as hot and cold, sharp and soft,” she said. “These same nerve endings also activate our feelings of closeness and attachment by arousing the brain’s love chemicals such as oxytocin.”

On Valentine’s Day it is worth noting that the romantic kiss may be underrated in a fast culture that celebrates booty calls, pornography and online dating.

“Despite the casualness of sex these days, kisses still pack a serious punch,” said Wish. “Good kissers know not to swallow up the mouth of the other, not to jam their tongue down the partner’s throat or knock their teeth. Kisses are such powerful connectors that the moment of the first touch can overwhelm you with pleasure.”
