Now, a Kiss Isn’t Just a Kiss – NYTimes.com

Excerpt: “…the researchers have concluded that kissing may help people assess potential mates and then maintain those relationships.

“The repurposing of the behavior is very efficient,” said Rafael Wlodarski, a doctoral candidate and lead author of the study, published in Archives of Sexual Behavior.”

My comment:  In my 2010 presentation at the Annual Meeting of American Mensa, I placed kissing into the proper context of the human courtship sequence, where it can clearly be viewed along with other forms of communication with pheromones. This 5.5 minute video excerpt is from that presentation, which was based on my award-winning published work: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences.  See also, our 1995/2002  book chapter # 12 from The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality “A Kiss Isn’t Just a Kiss.”

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones.
