Today marks International Kissing Day

July 6th is celebrated as the National Kissing Day in the United Kingdom and approximately two decades ago this holiday has been adopted universally by UN, making 6th of July “The International Kissing Day or World Kissing Day.”

What urges people to kiss? Firstly in many places it is a cultural practice. Virtually in the entire world people during romantic rendezvous feel the unmarked urge to kiss and express their love and feeling towards their respective partner; there is such an emotion that the people of the opposite gender are tuned to kiss and are ready and waiting for the moment. When one understands the pleasure and love attached with a kiss one would yearn for more kisses and derive more satisfaction from them.

The first kiss in a movie was recorded in 1896 - by May Irvin and John S. Reye. It was a 30-second act by Thomas Edison named The Kiss, counting 191 kisses.

A. E. Wolfram an American from Minnesota on September 15, 1990 kissed approximately 8001 people in 8 hours during the kissing festival. It means he managed to kiss a new person every 3.6 seconds.

The longest kiss in movie history is credited to You're in the Army Now (1940); Lead Actors Regis Toomey and Jane Wyman kissed for 185 seconds, which is 4 % of the movie length.
