There was this video on MSN this morning about the science behind kissing. I was surprised to learn that the man injects testosterone immediately into the brain of his significant other through his saliva. Meanwhile, the woman's kiss apparently triggers feelings of commitment. In a brilliant intellectual summarization, the video said kissing is meant for expressing deep emotional attachment to others or for triggering sexual arousal. After a day of solitude and formality, a family friend wrapped me in a bear hug saying he wouldn't hurt my shoulder. I tried to break loose but it was no use, giving in.
