On National Kissing Day (July 6th) a new study reveals that 37% of married couples haven’t passionately kissed in the last 3 Months


A new study by the UK’s leading married dating site IllicitEncounters.com has revealed that a staggering amount of married couples haven’t kissed in the last 3 months. National Kissing Day doesn’t seem to hold much passion for the 6% of members who further admitted that they haven’t passionately kissed their partner in the last 12 Months.

The survey of 2,000 married men and women revealed a startling trend of married couples going without a loving embrace for long periods of time as 30% admitted that they wouldn’t want to kiss their partner every week. ‘You’ve lost the loving feeling’ for sure!

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Mike Taylor commented: “Kissing is a tender and important part of a loving relationship and when it disappears from a marriage, you can find yourself feeling unattractive or disconnected from your partner. A passionate embrace isn’t just fun and enjoyable; it is psychologically good for you too as kissing releases endorphins, which make you feel happy. It can also help reduce stress and if that isn’t convincing enough, you should have a good snog to burns calories as research has shown that kissing burns around 2 to 3 calories per minute.”

Steve, a member of Illicitencounters.com from Lincoln commented: “I don’t really kiss my wife that often anymore. We have been married for 13 years and I am no longer attracted to her, I still love her but our relationship is more like brother and sister. I miss kissing and being passionate a lot and I have met a few women who are in the same situation – none of us are looking to leave our partners but I don’t want to go the rest of my life never kissing passionately again.”

So if you are one of the 37% of people who hasn’t been kissed in the last 3 months or you are married to one of the 30% of people who want to kiss less than once a week, then maybe you should look to find another person to lock lips with, asap.
