As far as romantic holidays go, Kiss Your Mate Day is relatively new and unknown, but it is quickly gaining popularity. Who doesn’t want a reason to grab hold of their partner and plant a resounding kiss on them? There are plenty of good reasons for kissing your mate, but studies show that the longer a relationship has lasted, the less likely it is that people kiss each other on a daily basis. The ones who do kiss frequently tend to have healthier, happier relationships.
The Health Benefits of Kissing Your Mate
There are lots of obvious reasons for kissing your partner, like showing how much you care and sparking some steamy encounters, but there are plenty of other good reasons for kissing. For one thing, kissing reduces your blood pressure. Your blood vessels dilate, blood flows more freely and your BP is reduced, so making out is good for your heart. Want to rev up your partner’s engine and get his blood pumping? Halloween Empire has lots of sexy outfits that are guaranteed to capture his interest, including our sexy maid costume and lots of other role playing costumes.
Kissing also helps your body to release hormones that improve your mood and contribute to your happiness, including hormones like dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin. Much like a runner’s high, people who spend time kissing start to feel their mood improve after just a few smooches. Other benefits include improved dental health (because saliva increases, washing away plaque) and a reduction in headaches. If you’re feeling particularly stressed, kissing in any form can help reduce your stress levels and calm you down. A feeling of well-being and security will take the place of that feelings of foreboding or irritation.
Test Driving a New Relationship
If you’re in a new relationship or are going on a date with someone new, kissing is a great way to test drive sexual compatibility. While a first kiss can be a bit awkward (hey, everyone is a bit nervous the first time), the ones after that can give you a lot of information about your sexual compatibility. If locking lips with a new partner doesn’t spark desire and turn up the heat, you may not have that crucial attraction.
Improve Your Relationship
Studies show that couples who kiss regularly live about five years longer than couples who don’t, and they have stronger, happier relationships. So if you don’t kiss your partner regularly, Kiss Your Mate Day is a great opportunity to start. Set aside some time in the evening for a make-out session or some romantic cuddling without any expectations for more. Greeting him at the door in our flirtatious Grecian Queen costume is sure to get his attention for a romantic evening. Once you get his attention, fully focus on long, slow kisses that unmistakably let your partner know how much they mean to you and don’t forget to follow up with more kisses in the days that follow.
So this April 28th, grab hold of your partner and celebrate Kiss Your Mate Day. You’ll both be glad you did!
