People disturbed by MRI of couple kissing

People disturbed by MRI of couple kissing

The video from the scanner is something you didn't need to see

Seeing people passionately stick their tongues down each other's throats can be a grotesque sight at the best of times, so it's no wonder people have been left disturbed by an MRI scan of such an encounter.

There's really very few reasons someone should be looking at the inside of another person's body, and pretty much all of them are related to health issues.

It makes sense for doctors to check out what's going on underneath all that skin if there's an issue, but as the average person it just feels a bit wrong and invasive.

If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at someone's tongue entering another person's mouth here:

Obviously even doctors don't typically need to see people smooching in order to make a diagnosis, but this MRI has obviously been done for some scientific reason, so here we are.

An MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and is a technique which uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create images of the inside of your body, specifically the organs and tissues.

You might have seen someone getting an MRI in real life or on TV in a small tube which requires them to lie down, but the people in this particular video managed to get in there together, suggesting it was made with a more spacious version of the machine.

Though we can't see any details giving away the appearances of the two people involved in the scan, you can clearly see one of them diving in, basically tongue-first, to kiss the other for the sake of science. You can see their hearts beating as the kiss takes place, and see them retreat back from one another afterwards.

One of the kissers is obviously keen on tongue.

It's possible the video yielded some great scientific revelation, but from a layman's point of view it's just a bit gross.

Responding to the clip after it was shared on Reddit, one person wrote: "Really makes kissing seem unappealing. Why the guy [sic] on the left go straight in with the tongue you got to warm up a little bit first."

Another commented: "The other person just jabbed them with their tongue. Then licking all the excess saliva. It's all ready unappealing. They couldn't have picked a worse couple to do this with."

I should point out that as most of us have probably never seen an MRI of ourselves kissing someone, it's possible we all look just as gross as this particular pair. Until that day comes, though, this is just what we'll have to work with.
