Why do people close their eyes when kissing?

According to statistics, 66 percent of people close their eyes when kissing. And only 34 percent of people enjoy watching their partners react during a kiss. In order to explain the reason for this, scientists have conducted research.

As a result, it turned out that a person who covers his eyes when kissing, without realizing it, protects his body from overload. During a kiss, a huge explosion of emotions occurs in a person's brain, which, if not restrained, can result in a swoon from an overabundance of feelings. Thus, kissing with closed eyes, a person subconsciously blocks the excess intensity of passions, which protects himself from unpleasant surprises.
