Here comes the science: Why bad kissers don't get to second base. I really like that there's an article about getting to second base on CNN. There's even a photo gallery of famous kisses.
FTFA:<blockquote> 59 percent of men and 66 percent of women said they've been in the position of being attracted to someone – until they kissed the person.</blockquote>
Ouch! I'm glad this isn't something that I have to worry about.
The best part? This study was conducted by Michael Christian. Of course all of you non-kissing-before-marriage types will undoubtedly completely disregard this because it's "science".
