Kissing is one of the best ways to express your love. We kiss our moms, friends, partners, and kids, but there’s something more special happening when you are kissing your partner. Oftentimes couples take kissing for granted and don’t realize what amazing benefits one kiss has. Kissing can help you figure out if your partner truly loves you and if you love him in return. It can bust a bad mood and help you survive rough times. While kissing is good for your relationship, it’s also good for your overall health. Read on to explore some of the most surprising things you probably didn’t know about kissing and let me know what do you think about them after reading through.

Want it, need it, have to have it — but what precisely is happening when you’re climaxing? Here, the science behind the female orgasm
It’s the only thing that feels better than diving into a cool lake on a sweltering day, biting into a juicy cheeseburger when you’re starving, or even getting your wallet back after losing it on vacation abroad. An orgasm is that good. Which is why it bites that it doesn’t happen more often. According to several major surveys, only 25 percent of women always climax during sex with a partner.
How Normal Is It for Sex to Hurt? Sex may be pretty much synonymous with pleasure, but that doesn’t mean that the experience is always pain-free. If getting it on makes you feel things in an “ouch” kind of way, you’re not alone. According to a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, a whopping 30 percent of women reported pain during their most recent roll in the hay.
Everyone has sexual fantasies, and that’s a good thing—they can take regular ol’ sex into straight-up OMG amazing territory.

We reached out to real men for the no-holds-barred truth when it comes to the absolute hottest fantasies they usually keep private. Take a look at their responses, and file them away as inspiration for a night when you want to spice things up a bit.
The taint. If you had a dollar for every time you’ve heard a joke about it, you’d probably be pretty flush right now. But if all you’re doing with your taint is laughing at it, then you’re missing out on some serious pleasure. The space between your genitals and your anus, a.k.a. the perineum, is packed with nerve endings. “The addition of a little perineal stimulation can take your regular sex routine to a whole new level,” says Jessica O’Reilly, Ph.D., author of Hot Sex Tips, Tricks, and Licks and Astroglide’s resident sexologist.

Nothing can kill your sex buzz like being all caught up in the moment with a totally revved engine when the guy orgasms, putting the kibosh on one of the most fun ways to get your heartrate up.

The top erogenous zones for guys—and what to do with each one
A new study identifies the most sensitive spots on the male body. And while his penis came out on top (no shocker there), there are plenty of other places he wants you to include in the action. Here, the spots your boyfriend or husband is dying for you to touch—along with a suggestion for the best way to stimulate each one.
A new study surveyed men on down-there ‘dos.
We seriously doubt any guy would retreat if he came to find you had the “wrong” downstairs hairstyle, but a new study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine shows that most men prefer hair-free lady parts.
For the study, researchers asked 1,110 college-aged men and women how they maintained their pubic hair, the reasons behind their styles, and how they preferred their sexual partners groom down below.
It turns out, the vast majority of both men and women keep things tidy down there: Ninety-five percent of the study participants had trimmed or removed at least some of their pubic hair in the past four weeks. Meanwhile, half of women and one in five men said they typically went hair-free. Both men and women were more likely to groom if they expected to receive oral sex soon.
Of the bushy minority (the five percent who didn’t groom), the overwhelming majority was guys. Most of the men surveyed said that, in the past four weeks, they had either trimmed a bit or just let their hair go wild.
Funny—since 60 percent of the men surveyed preferred their partners to be hair-free. The remaining guys said they liked their partner to have some down-there hair, were up for several styles, or flat-out said it didn’t matter to them. (For the record, women were pretty much split four ways between preferring dudes hair-free, partially shaved/waxed, trimmed but without any actual hair removal, and not caring one way or another.)
“These results suggest pubic hair removal patterns and preferences are related to gender norms and reflect how the beauty ideal can vary by gender,” says lead study author Scott M. Butler, Ph.D., M.P.H., assistant director of the School of Health and Human Performance at Georgia College.
Hence why, if you are going to de-hair your nether region, the best reason to do so is because it’s your preference, says Butler, who notes that some women said they waxed because it made them feel clean and made sex more comfortable. And on the flip side, if you squirm at the thought of having an aesthetician between your legs or don’t feel like breaking out a razor on the regular, that’s totally cool, too.
