Shane Company recently did a survey and came up with 2 lists. States with the best kissers and states with the worst kissers. Their methodology was to survey more than 2,300 U.S. residents, ensuring at least 50 in every state. They asked them to confess their own kissing prowess on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the worst at kissing and 5 being Aphrodite’s equal.

The national average kissing score was just 3.54 out of 5.
