With a month and a half before The Science of Kissing‘s debut, Ayana Byrd at Redbook interviewed me for a fun article in their December issue called The Kissing Project. The piece explores why we kiss and I’m quoted:
“Research suggests that men may have an unconscious tendency to swap lots of spit because they transfer testosterone (which raises libido over time) to their mate through saliva.”
“Whether a couple has been together for four months or 40 years, kissing promotes feelings of intimacy and security.”
Of course, that’s just a hint of what’s in the actual book: I spend a chapter exploring gender differences and several more on the hormones and neurotransmitters involved. While I don’t want to give too much away yet, it’s neat to see a nod to The Science of Kissing in print!
More will be revealed over the coming weeks…
