I was asked recently, how should a person initiate a kiss? This is a great question. The key to kissing is stimulate desire and attraction. Given what we are learning about microbiome and microbial cloud - our physiology and especially our surface and airborne bacteria can elicit desire as easily as it can elicit a hunger impulse. It’s true that kissing is listed among the most intimate exchanges between humans. It is also true that prolonged hugging or hand holding/stroking can elicit the release of oxytocin (the bonding hormone).
