Passionate kiss caused her hearing loss

Even though kissing is very safe, a passionate kiss left a young woman completely deaf in her left ear.

“Kiss of deaf”, as the media call it, reptured her eardrum in a painful pucker when her boyfriend kissed her “too passionately”.

“The inner ear is connected to the mouth through a tube, whose chief function is to equalize the pressure between the two. In this case, the kiss reduced the pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear,” said Dr. Li, an ear specialist from Zhuhai Second People’s Hospital in China.

The “good news” for this young woman is that her hearing will probably return to normal in two months.

To all couples and lovers out there…be careful, bacause love is not just blind - it´s deaf too.
