Who invented kissing?
    #3034749 - 08/22/04 01:00 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

It's so common and natural that's it's weird to think that someone had to invent it.

Hmmmmm... 

:kiss:  :laugh:

I bet it came as instinctive, back when man was still living in caves and couldn't say anything more than "ugg...oooga" :wink:

The number of nerve-endings in the lips is far beyond most other areas of the body, so I suspect it had something to do with mating practices while we were still "animals".

Once, men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free.
But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

You know... It could have just been some cave man trying to eat a chick when he was hungry but somehow... slipped... And landed in a sexual position. That's how it was related to love. I guess.

Anything is possible... With imagination.

I think about that sometimes too. When you look at two people kissing, it kinda looks really akward. Don't ya think?

Well when I think about it, I think about how natural it seems since like trendal said our lips are really sensitive. I guess that's just because we have seen it all our lives and we're used to it. But then I start to think about it more objectively and it's like, WTF?? What a strange thing to do... :blush:

On that thought.. Where the hell did sex come from? How the hell did we know how to do it? It seems rather wierd that the original male and female somehow knew what to do.

Sex just seems a lot more intuitive and logical than kissing. Plus if you believe in evolution the earliest primates had to have 'discovered' it.

I believe it was Freud who thought that kissing was so appealing because it makes us think back to our early baby stages where we were breast feeding

And as already been mentioned, the lips resemble other lips to the male, and it's a nice spot. Odd though, I wonder if any other primates kiss sexually

The french where only the ones who first started using their tongues. The brits thought it was barbaric.

Kissing is a fairly new concept to humans. According to the Epic of Gilgamesh, lovers did not kiss; they rubbed noses.



And during that time, civilization had already begun; barely.
