Don't Try this at home!

"They say" that Chocolate is better than kissing! "Chocolate beats kissing hands down when it comes to providing a long-lasting body and brain buzz." These were conclusions of lab experiments done in the UK with volunteers in their twenties.

I don't know about you, but I don't think that the environment of a lab would get me in the right mood for a passionate snog, not that I'm that much into romantic settings and all the rest. I suppose I'm getting old, being in my forties and all that, but I think it would be hard to get into any sort of passionate kissing if I was all wired up with electrodes, knowing that people were watching me! (Maybe back in my starry eyed youth I could have ignored all that.)

It's certainly an interesting result though, and given that I'm partial to my chocolate, I think there is definitely some worth in some anecdotal testing of this result 'in the field'. For the sake of science of course.

You are So right. I can't smooch in front of other people, let alone those with clipboards and oscilloscopes.

And I think "snog" is a magnificent word.
I think "snog" is a classic word too.. don't actually use it much, but I reckon I should - it's one of those classic Pommy terms that sound even better in a Pommy accent.
Snogging is wonderful. Waaaaaay better than chocolate!

I'd be incredibly self-conscious kissing in front of a bunch of people with clipboards (although if I was snogging the person with the clipboard...)
Ah you geek MB!!

I still think this warrants some serious and concerted testing - in all sorts of situations. Of both of course :) Though not in public of course. With the snogging. (Though these days you almost feel like you should be eating chocolate in private so noone thinks you are a piggy!)
I walked in on my housemate snogging the guy she is dating last night and she was very embarassed. Honestly the way she reacted it was like I was her Dad catching her humping the local Bad Boy. Very funny.

Personally I'm not a fan of physical human contact of any sort and I can maybe eat chocolate only once or twice a year so the study seems rather pointless to me - both are equally dull. Watching my housemates chomp down on so much chocolate every week is simply amazing - you females are crazy!
Not of any sort Jebus?!!

I wish I felt the same about chocolate. But kind of relieved about the other.

So now you know why so many of us chomp down on chocolate!
Chocolate doesn't take the opportunity to grope, or pout later if you turn it down. So speaks a 200+ lb woman.
