Kissing with the heads aligned may cause the noses to get in the way, so tilting the head one way or the other will give better access to the mouth.

It may well be that there is a reason why tilting to the right is preferable to tilting to the left, but what is clear is that both parties have to tilt in the same direction, otherwise it would be counter-productive; so in Joe is used to kissing to the right, and Lisa has never kissed before, then she will respond to Joe's example.  Then when Lisa and Joe break up, and Lisa takes up with Adam, who has not kissed before, so Lisa will tilt to the right (out of habit formed with Joe), and Adam must now follow suit.
