  1. How fascinating! That was so much fun to watch. I learned a lot and am now an ever greater catch for guys who like smart guys. ;-)

  2. Thorough and fascinating. I think I would kiss the narrator in 2 seconds. Just for the dopamine rush. All very scientific, of course.

  7. Was there a same-sex couple in there and I just missed it? I did see a couple of fictitious aliens locking lips...

  12. Such a heteronormative video! Women go with men, men with women..... a little old school...

  13. @Tara He addresses that toward the end of the video, stating that most research on the kiss is focuses on college-aged "heterosexual cis-gendered couples." Personally, I find that inclusion in a video that's a few minutes long, pretty up-to-date.
