Turn Off the Faucet

Don’t swab her tonsils until she likes you enough to enjoy it.


A sloppy first kiss can torpedo a new romance, say University at Albany researchers. They asked 122 women about smooching and found that two-thirds had ended a budding relationship because the guy tried to wet-vac their face. Why is it so hard for us to hold back? Men have weak sensory receptors, so we need wetter kisses to improve the exchange of pheromones contained in saliva.
