a reply to: bigfatfurrytexanThat was a nice, brief article, that put what I already knew into words. The olfactory sense is a huge part of choosing a mate. Eskimo kisses rock.

The whole site is fantastic. Im about half way through binge reading it and read that particular article a couple of days ago. Since it was fresh on my mind...i shared.

It's considered a normal thing,goodnight kisses,but one day the thought popped into my head-it's almost like a goodbye,in a way. Then i was watching a bit of Game of Thrones with my daughter one afternoon and that bit about "The Night is Dark and filled with Terror" made me wonder if this dated back from a long time ago,when people really were'nt sure if they were going to make it to dawn
Propably not,i just found it an amusing thought because i once wondered where that habit came from.

Kissing is not important when it comes to procreation. So did early humans kiss?

It was a part of cohabitation practices back in cavemen times and beyond. It basically said were going to be stuck with each other for a while so lets swap germs just to expose ourself's to each others biological fields and bodily fluids. And back in them days lets just say there were a lot of different things out there which one group or tribe had that the other tribe over the hill did not.

Lets just say being in close proximity or even eating the same foods could spreed who knows what. The current mating practices were not created till thousands of years latter, but the routines remain the same...Basically kissing was, and still is I suppose natures way of distributing vaccines among populations and those who would end up living in close contact within a group or tribe or village or whatever you want to call it. It was basically swapping germs to make sure you all don't die from any foreign germs which may have gotten itself into the pool of germs which thrive among humans.

From there it became part of habit among primates then eventually ritualized as things became more complex.

And if they did, when did humans start to french kiss, tongue inserted beyond lips?

Long before the french even existed. Nobody just bothered to categorize it till much latter when it became fashionable, and our data transferring systems ie eco social mediums become more advanced. Its a label for something humans have been doing and has been going on for a long time basically.

The french did not invent french fries either it moved its way there from Belgium I heard. Yet, whats in a name right? Also German sausage was originally not really German either, besides what is in originality anyways. But hey, funny that.

Or as this hilarious short cartoon vid illustrates.

Neanderthal kissing? There is no answer since all we have is bones of their bodies.

I just told you the answer. Now you may move on as you have been enlightened. And now you even know were the origins of vaccines came from. As for neanderthals, they had plenty of other ways of swapping fluids thats for sure, some much more creative then there more coastal relatives.
