Pucker up! On today’s episode we investigate the kiss.
Come a little closer. Valentine’s Day is upon us, and to celebrate Distillations is breaking down a classic mating ritual: the kiss. On today’s episode we begin with an exploration of what exactly saliva is made of—and what we risk passing to our partners when we exchange it. Then our executive producer Jennifer Dionisio chats with Sheril Kirshenbaum, author of The Science of Kissing, to learn more about what happens in the brain when two people lock lips.
