Initially researchers assume the tendency of couples to tilt their heads to the right when kissing comes from the observation of the couple to what they see in the mass media as when looking at Western movies where a lot of scenes exposed kiss between the cast.
However, research was conducted in Bangladesh, where kisses are not commonly done in public, even banned in movies or TV. A number of married couples were asked to kiss in their homes.
As a result, right-handed people tend to tilt their heads right when kissing, and vice versa, left-handed pairs will tilt their heads to the left.
While those who receive a kiss, whether he is left-handed or not, will follow where the direction of the partner's head. Interestingly, most respondents reasoned to feel awkward if they tilted their heads in the opposite direction to their partner.
In the end, the researchers concluded that the kissing tendency of the couple is not determined by the customs or social values that exist in their environment, but merely on the performance of their brains, as well as with the right-handed and left-handed owners. As reported by The Conversation.
Second, it may be related to left hemisphere function where its performance is more related to emotions and decision making. As we know, the left hemisphere also controls more muscles in the right side of the body.
Third, there is the possibility of differences in hormone levels such as testosterone and neurotransmitters such as dopamine in the right and left hemispheres. This, further researchers, claimed to affect a person to tilt his head to the right when deciding to kiss with his partner.
