Kissing Reduces Stress

It was great news when we learned that sex can reduce stress, but it turns out there's no need to get naked in order to ease your mind or your troubles — recent research shows that kissing is also a stress-reliever. When couples were asked to smooch for 15 minutes, there was a decrease in levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Other couples who were asked to just hold hands, also had a decrease in cortisol, but kissing was much more effective.

The study also discovered that guys prefer sloppier kisses, which allows testosterone in his saliva to transfer to his partner as testosterone increases the sex drive in both men and women. So if you're having issues with your job, your sister, your roommate, or your finances, a little make-out or love-making session may be just the thing you need!
