The longest kiss in the world lasted 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds. Although we do not know how the couple managed to resist for so long, we have an answer to the golden question that we all asked ourselves at some point: Why do we close our eyes when we kiss?
We determined the reasons why we close our eyes while kissing. Check them out below.
It Helps Our Brain To Focus Better
Our ability to sense things gets worse when our eyes are doing more work.
It Means You Want To Feel More With Your Touch
Just as closing your eyes helps you get rid of distractions around you, it also allows you to fully experience the sensation of kissing.
By closing our eyes to kiss, we allow our brain to focus on touch, rather than other sensory experiences.
It Helps Us Feel Less Vulnerable
Since kissing is one of the most personal and intimate things of all time, it can make you or your partner feel vulnerable.
To avoid this and the feeling of embarrassment, we prefer to close our eyes automatically before leaning in for a kiss.
The Alternative Could Be “creepy” Or Simply “too Much.”
Although eye contact is generally desirable, kissing with your eyes open may not be.
Not only will doing this make your partner uncomfortable, but scientific evidence suggests that it can overwhelm your brain and prevent you from feeling too much if anything at all.
