Kissing is good for your relationship, but you may wonder if it does your body any good. Stop wondering. Giving your lips a good workout apparently is okay for the rest of you as well: Kissing burns calories.
You’ll burn more calories standing than sitting, and more moving than still.
Oxygen consumption is the key to burning calories, according to University of New Mexico. If you get to the point where you are breathing heavy because of your kissing, you are burning more calories.
A vigorous kiss that involves some petting could burn as many as 90 calories per hour, reports WomansDay.com, a figure that computes to 1.5 calories per minute. The IndiaTimes website suggests that kissing can burn 120 calories per hour, which amounts to 2 calories per minute. You probably won’t drop pounds just by kissing, but it won’t hurt either.
