Buzz feed: chocolate better than kissing

371617507_b27e22b3eb.jpgSexoteric points to a recent article by the BBC that proves chocolate to be more worthwhile than a kiss. Through heart rates and brain activity, couples licked respective lips in the name of science. With mouths monitored and tongues tested, the results were in:

"Chocolate caused a more intense and longer lasting "buzz" than kissing, and doubled volunteers' heart rates. Dr Lewis said: "There is no doubt that chocolate beats kissing hands down when it comes to providing a long-lasting body and brain buzz. "A buzz that, in many cases, lasted four times as long as the most passionate kiss." He said substances in chocolate were already known to have a psychoactive effect, but that allowing it to melt on your tongue could be the secret to maximising the buzz."

Perhaps passionate, but the petri dish didn't test against the buzz of a "first kiss". Either way, women everywhere who stand by the "chocolate over sex" opinion could send their boyfriends an "I told you so" email, if they hadn't already scared off any erection in sight.

But what about combining chocolate with a kiss (and I don't mean the Hershey's kind)? That would be . . . oh so . . . .
