|MadSci Network: Evolution|
Dear MAD--recently a local NPR show was trying to figure out why people tend to close their eyes when they kiss. My suggestion was that it is in part a protective reflex as object (face) nears the eyes and then in part psychological to try and maintain the "passionate" state of mind. My question, however, is what may be the evolutionary reason to the "closed-eye kiss?" Thank you kindly for your theories! Best, Dr. Lydia Hartunian
