Pucker Up...Or Not?!

While watching Japanese TV tonight - always an interesting and edifying experience - a programme claimed that Japanese couples only kiss each other a measly 0.56 times per day! Aussies claimed third place with an average smooch rate of 5.91 times per day. One of the guests - a middle aged man - claimed he hadn't kissed his wife in 12 years! So, it's time to 'fess up - how many kisses do you get in one day?

    0.56 times a day!? That doesn't seem like much at all. Plus, how do you only half kiss someone!? :)

    I know, it's pretty difficult to fathom...but the Japanese panellists did not seem surprised by the figure!

    well, if you count doggie kisses, quite a few! Human kisses? None since June 2001 ;-)

    I don't mind a peck on the lips or the cheek but I hate outright kissing. It feels like my husband is trying to swallow my face AND he hasn't been to the dentist in nine years.

    So zero real kisses a day.

    A Day without kisses is like a day without air.
