Philemato...what?

Kissing is a science unto itself. A kiss reveals whether the chemistry is right between two people (and much more…).

It might be hard to believe, but it’s true: philematology is the scientific study of kissing. Researchers in this field focus on the significance and origin of kissing along with kissing techniques and types. Philematology draws together biologists, cultural scientists, linguists, physicists, physicians and sociologists.
