Facts About Kissing That Are Guaranteed To Gross You Out!

November 17, 2015 2 min read

Locking lips, who doesn't love it? But it's not always as romantic and sensual as we think. The Kindergarten concept of 'cooties' isn't too far off when you examine that germ-dance that happens when you partake in a hot make out session. kissing germs bacteria flu season "There’s an invisible factor in human relationships, but it’s not love: it’s germs. The trillions of microbes living in and on our bodies can be the difference between a great date or a noxious nightmare." says microbiologist Jason Tetro. What is really lurking in your lovers mouth? Well, we explore the more disgusting side of making out as flu season approaches. The Cause of Stinky Breath According to a recent study, 7 out of 10 people would break up with their partner due to bad breath. The stench is caused by tiny bacteria that live in your mouth. There are over 600 kinds that can find a home in there and begin eating and pooping, which can cause problems. "When oral bacteria are ejecting waste, it goes straight into your mouth. Some of these waste molecules are quite smelly; they are known as volatile sulfur compounds and are responsible for bad breath." says Jason. Your Mouth Is A Living Ecosystem  And someone can change the balance of that ecosystem after just 10 seconds of kissing. A few seconds of making out can alter your entire bacterial profile while you exchange billions of germs. If you brush after you get hot and heavy, you can erase the changes and rebalance your mouth. But if you go a long time without brushing, the changes can become semi-perminant. The bacteria placed in your mouth can set up shop and form a community in which to multiply. Kissing Makes You High  Studies have shown that kissing can send you into a euphoric state, just like taking illicit substances. When you kiss, your brain releases its feel-good hormone which can make you feel more attracted to your make out partner than you actually are. Your levels of serotonin decrease (this is the hormone that regulates your emotional behaviour) so your emotions can take control over rational thinking. Don't Kiss When You're Sick  It should be common knowledge, but don't be totally gross and spread bacteria all over the place when you're under the weather. Your mouth and other's mouths are ideal environments to grow and multiply germs. "There’ll be time enough when you’ve recovered to make up for lost time.” says Jason.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
