Everyone knows that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are an adorable couple, but did you know that they have one of the most passionate and beautiful kisses of all time?
They give one of the best kisses when they’re alone in the privacy of their own homes. But since they’re constantly in the spotlight, people are always watching and taking photos of their sweet and passionate moments. Thanks to TikTok, we now have a library of thousands of their perfect kisses. So let’s take a look at how their tongue movements, lip-to-lip contact and even breathing influence each other while they’re kissing. It’s quite an intimate dance!
The Science Of The Perfect Kiss
Let’s start with the basics. Physically and genetically, are they perfect for each other?
Yes, they’re perfectly suited for one another. Kristen is a brunette with classic European features. She has a slender figure with a slim waist and athletic shoulders. Robert is a blond and extremely handsome, with chiseled features and incredible blue eyes. Together, they make an elegant and breathtaking couple. When they kiss, they have perfect symmetry and matching motions. Every kiss is a study in mechanics.
While humans have been evolving as a species, our genetic make-up has remained the same. This has allowed scientists to examine our DNA and study human mating habits. They’ve found that similar to other animals in the animal kingdom, homo sapiens (humans) are programmed to match up with those with whom they share similar genetic material. This is called a “Pheromone-induced Mate Preferential Phenotype,” and it’s been observed in many different species. This behavior is largely based on sexual selection and driven by hormones like testosterone and estrogen. It’s been observed in numerous animal species, including humans, and it’s been shown to increase the chance of successful mating and healthy offspring.
The Chemistry Of The Perfect Kiss
While it’s obvious that Kristen and Robert are perfectly matched, it’s not always easy to understand the science behind it. Why do they have such a powerful and intense kiss?
Like all good kisses, the chemistry between these two is incredibly complex and can’t be reduced to just one factor. In fact, it’s a combination of many things. First, their mouths are perfectly suited and they have an incredible capacity for lip-to-lip touching. This is not something that comes naturally. It can only be cultivated through years of practice and learning how to control their breathing while kissing. Second, they have a similar genetic makeup. Third, their testosterone and estrogen levels are similar, if not identical, which means that they have similar urges, drives and behaviors. Finally, as previously mentioned, their genetic make-up has not changed much over the years. This allows scientists to examine their DNA and study the way they evolved as a species.
There is a reason why you need to learn to control your breathing while kissing. Not only does it affect the way you feel physically, but it also changes the way you taste and smell things. When you take a deep breath, your olfactory nerves fire up, sending signals to the brain that something is going on. This gives you a new sense of smell and tastes. When you hold your breath, you limit your perception of smell and taste. Scientists like Dr. Karen McComb, PhD, have even gone so far as to say that “holding your breath while kissing is an excellent way to prevent yourself from tasting the individual ingredients of the food you are eating.” So if you want to have the perfect kiss, learn to control your breathing! It’s all about control…and trust. You must be able to trust your partner. If you don’t, it won’t work.
It’s also important to notice that while some people naturally have a wider mouth, allowing them to accommodate a bigger tongue, others have a narrower mouth, making it difficult or impossible to extend their tongue. In these cases, the solution is neither to accommodate nor to force the issue. Instead, it’s to use your hands to guide their mouth to your taste bud. This is called the “Braided Tongue Technique,” and it’s been observed in macaques, among other species. While it sounds like a rather odd sexual practice, it has its advantages.
The Symmetry Of The Perfect Kiss
One of the most astounding things about the Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson kiss is how perfectly symmetrical it is. As we’ve already discussed, they have perfect matching DNA and identical hormones. This means that they also have identical taste and smell receptors on the surface of their tongues. As a result, when they touch tongues during a kiss, they experience exactly what the other one is feeling.
This is clearly not something that comes naturally. It can only be achieved through extensive practice and skill. When they practice kissing, they unconsciously replicate the movements, positioning and even breathing of one another. This is called functional coupling and it’s been observed in numerous animal species, including humans. It forms the basis of synchronized and coordinated movement, enabling the species to function as a single unit.
This is why, when you watch a couple kissing, it looks like they’re going at it with a mechanical efficiency. The movements are almost mechanical in appearance and it’s difficult to tell where one kiss ends and the next one begins. One interesting point to make is that people who are anatomically identical, such as identical twins or siblings, also share these characteristics. So not only do they have similar DNA, but they are also highly coordinated, even when not kissing.
The Touch-sensitive Feeling Of The Perfect Kiss
While we’ve covered a lot of ground so far, let’s discuss something else that’s phenomenal about the Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson kiss. It’s called the “taste-bud feeling.” When you have your tongue in your partner’s mouth, it’s like sticking your tongue in their oral cavity and feeling the soft texture, the smoothness and even the temperature of their tongue. This is something that, I’m sure, they wouldn’t want you to stop doing so soon!
As mentioned by drkmarc in the comments below, it has been shown that when you place your tongue in your partner’s mouth and lightly press down, you can actually feel the heat generated in your mouth. This phenomenon is called “induced oral temperature modulation” and it’s been observed in various animal species, including humans. Some researchers have gone as far as to say that “kissing is an excellent way to experience the warmth of another’s body.” Which brings us to our next point…
The Opportunity For Heat Generation During The Kiss
The next amazing thing about the Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson kiss is how much heat it generates. When they’re kissing, your mouth is naturally warming up, thanks to your built-in heat generators, the sweat glands in your palms and the blood flowing in your veins. This, in turn, effects the way you taste and smell things. So while you’re licking the inside of your partner’s mouth, your tongue is also warming up, in addition to the rest of your body.
When you’re in the midst of a heated kiss, your blood is pumping and the temperature is rising. This is both you and your partner’s bodies responding to the passion and passion of the moment. While it’s something that we all experience countless times a day, it’s not something that we always consciously register as being different from any other kiss. But when you consider that you’re a species that relies on heat generation for much of its survival, it’s easy to see why the heat generated during sex is so important. If you want to experience the taste-bud feeling, let’s say, for the first time, how does the heat feel? Does it feel similar to how your body feels when you’re having regular sex?
Yes, it does. In fact, the more passionate and committed you are during sex, the more you’ll enjoy the taste of another’s kiss. One thing to keep in mind is that during sex, the rush of adrenaline and other hormones, as well as the increased blood flow, also increase the body’s heat. This means that even if you don’t feel that you’re generating much heat yourself, your body is, in fact, generating more. This is why your partner will often feel warmer during and after sex than before.
Like all good scientists, when Dr. Karen McComb, PhD, and her team at the University of California conducted a study to examine “induced oral temperature modulation,” they set out to determine how, when and where on the mouth people experience oral temperature modulation. In other words, where does your tongue feel warmest when you’re having regular sex? And, more importantly, does it feel the same or different than the rest of your body?
