How To Kiss Like You Mean It

Kissing Tips For A Memorable Lip-lock
Looks like these two are doing everything right!
Your first kiss may not have been memorable, but that doesn't mean your next one shouldn't be.

More than half of all people experience their first real kiss by the time they are 14-years-old, but it more often than not isn't the experience of our teenage dreams. As adults, it can't hurt to know a little bit more about the mechanics of kissing. Here are some interesting bits about one of our favorite activities:

  • Kissing is exercise: When we kiss, our hearts beat faster and our breathing becomes deeper, mimicking the way our bodies react to exercise. If done with passion, kissing can be a great workout; a 60-second kiss burns more than 50 calories.
  • Kissing can mean proper etiquette: In many European countries, it's proper etiquette to greet someone by kissing them on both cheeks.
  • Kissing raises self-esteem: Kissing sends signals to our brain to produce hormones that makes us feel good. And it’s no surprise that one kiss leads to another.

So, what’s the secret to a romantic kiss that will knock her proverbial socks off? After interviewing over 2,000 women on Facebook, I found out people have some pretty strong opinions about what they’re looking for in a kiss:

Don'ts:

  • "Sloppy, wet and all over the place."
  • "His tongue all the way down my throat."
  • "Don't think that a kiss is the precursor to me giving oral sex."
  • "Don't lick my mouth."
  • "What's up with fast jaw movements? I'm not trying to be chewed on."

  • Start gently. Let your mouth wander, but pay attention to your partner's reactions and act accordingly.
  • Light strokes on the cheekbones, neck, and back get extra points, as these areas are usually ignored.
  • Timing is everything. Start slowly, and stay slow enough to watch for signs that encourage more rapid movement and advances. 

Of course, keep in mind that every kiss is different, and what's a definite "don't" for one person might be a "please do!" for another. There's only one way to find out, and luckily, that way is a lot of fun.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
