KISS AND TELL

Because there’s more to kissing than you might think:

* You burn 26 calories in a one-minute kiss

* The average person spends two weeks of his/her life kissing

* Romans kissed each other on the eyes as a greeting

* Kissing helps reduce tooth decay by producing more saliva

* In some cultures, instead of kissing, biting off each other’s eyelashes is far more romantic

* The scientific name for kissing is philematology

* 50 percent of all people kiss before they are 14

GET A KISS…IN THE BATHROOM?

The company’s first product for actual sale, one can only hope that at this urinal, men will never miss. The brainchild of a dutch designer, Bathroom Mania products transform the bathroom experience.
