Why do we kiss with our eyes closed?
At least once in your life, you might wonder why while we are making quite active movements with our lips (and most often with our tongues!), we don’t look into the partner’s eyes.
You, of course, can say that this is just politeness: who will like it when someone stares at him at such close range? A kiss, as they say, is not a reason to show each other enlarged pores, flawed mascara or a cut from yesterday's shave.
This hypothesis is quite viable, but ophthalmologists believe that this is not the case. Sandra Murphy and Polly Dalton of the University of London published the results of a study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology. Their work was not associated with kisses (they did not even experiment in the laboratory!) but concerned the human sense of touch.
The participants of the experiment had to observe successively changing symbols on the screen and give a signal when they saw the number 10 or the letter N. At the same time, a slight vibration was transmitted to the armrests of the chair in which they were sitting.
After the experiment, the participants were asked to tell at what moments they felt a vibration. It turned out that the more they were focused on the visuals, the less they felt touch. This explains the fact that when we want to focus on tactile sensations (and in a kiss, they are undoubtedly more important than others), we close our eyes.
