Heres a Valentine Question: How Did the Act of Kissing Ever Become So Popular ?

I'm not trying to be a Scrooge, but when I think about the act of lip-locking, it's actually a very unsanitary thing.  Think about it!  Our mouths are full of bacteria, viruses, etc.  So the questions naturally arose in my mind, "How did such an act actually come to be?  Why do people 'want' to kiss?"  Here's what I found on the subject.
