This unusual news items comes from Reuters India. It finishes with an amazing piece of advice for avoiding hearing loss due to kissing.

A young woman in southern China has partially lost her hearing after her boyfriend ruptured her eardrum during an excessively passionate kiss, local media reported on Monday.

The 20-something girl from Zhuhai, in southern Guangdong province, went to hospital completely deaf in her left ear, the China Daily said, citing a report in a local newspaper.

“The kiss reduced pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear. The woman’s hearing would likely return to normal after about two months” said the hospital’s Doctor Li.

“While kissing is normally very safe, doctors advise people to proceed with caution,” the paper said.
