Study Reveals That Half Of The World Thinks Making Out Is Gross

July 16, 2015 1 min read

Do you love kissing your partner, or does the whole concept turn you off? Apparently it's the latter for half of the world's population. Mens Fitness reports that making out is considered gross by half of the world, and is often thought of as unhygienic. So what Western culture has romanticized in Hollywood movies and sang about in oh so many pop classics, is actually kind of icky depending on where you live. In fact, kissing barely occurs in 91 cultures all across the globe. There is no first kiss at the beginning of relationships, and no kiss to signify marriage. These kiss-less cultures include many indigenous groups. Romantic kissing is not found in Saharan Africa, Somalia or New Guinea. The Inuit and The Maori of New Zealand "kiss" without touching lips. They do this by pressing their noses together and inhaling each other's breath. This is not necessarily a romantic kiss, but one that symbolizes a loving bond between parent and child or is used as a greeting. Some cultures view romantic kisses as a form of intimacy not for public display. In ancient China, kissing was a sexual act to kept private. In some Muslim countries, it is still considered the same and it can be against the law to show any PDA. Europe is a hotspot for the romantic kiss, as well as America and Canada.

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 2-3 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

BodyRock Equipment

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. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

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.
