"Talking Smack: A brief history of the kiss" by Gordon Bass

interesting factoid:
In a study of cold virus transmission, only one person in sixteen became infected by a 1.5-minute kiss from an infected donor. You're more likely to catch a cold from turning a doorknob. Of the 280 bacteria that thrive in the human mouth, more than ninety percent are harmless.
