has now moved to tumblr!]

The weekly Sunday Snog has became far more popular than I anticipated when I came up with idea for fun while composing The Science of Kissing. Many readers have emailed their own photos and artwork and I've received multiple requests for a single link to view all the pictures. Sounds good to me. Introducing The Science of Kissing Gallery: presently under-construction and located on the right sidebar of our blog. This gallery will feature collected kisses from across time, space, and species. Discover has agreed to help by creating a special page with thumbnails--much like The Loom's fantastic Science Tattoo Emporium--so watch for the official launch of this new page over the coming weeks! You can submit your original photo or artwork for consideration at The more creative, the better. Now onto this week's contribution from my good friend, Duke primate researcher Vanessa Woods. Her highly-anticipated book entitled, Bonobo Handshake debuts next summer!
