International Kiss Day is celebrated; however, this year is totally different from other commemorations due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the world. Thus, according to information from EFE, this time it will be the one with the fewest kisses throughout its installation.
The health crisis caused by COVID-19 has caused kisses to no longer be the main sign of affection between couples, according to the Gleeden survey, a platform for extra-marital encounters for married people. Of the 12 thousand users who participated, 63 percent, the majority men, assures that they have not given any kisses since the start of the state of alarm due to the fear of contagion and the lack of privacy when the whole family is at home. Only 26 have kissed their partner and 19 percent have given their pet a kiss.
Also called ósculo, this word of Celtic origin derived in Latin basium, which is now translated as kiss. According to the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language, kissing is the act of touching or pressing someone with a lip movement; or something as an expression of love, desire or reverence, or as a greeting. Therefore, it is a fundamental sign of love.
A study from the University of Vienna showed that when the lips of two people join the heart rate doubles because the heart rate accelerates; In addition, adrenaline is released, the production of good cholesterol is induced and, as millions of bacteria are exchanged, the defenses are strengthened. And the brain releases endorphins that decrease stress, relieve pain, relax muscles, and induce restful sleep.
Despite the contingency, some people have wanted to continue the tradition and kiss with their face masks on to continue this important show of affection and at the same time honor this celebration.
