How to Kiss
Bringing your lips in contact with someone else's is a sign of affection that most people enjoy. But since there are many kinds of kisses to reflect the many levels of affection you can have for someone.
Things to take care ‘Before the Kiss’:
- Get your lips in proper kissing order. The most kissable lips are smooth and sweet, not dry, chapped and tense.
- Exfoliate your lips with sugar to make them soft.
- A small, suggestive smile does wonders. If you want to find out if you're partner is interested, sending a suggestive smile will do the trick. If you get a smile back, you're good to go. If not, or if your partner looks down or away, you probably want to back off.
- Moisturize your lips to keep them soft.
- Make sure that you're aligned with your partner. You want to tilt your head slightly so that your lips are lined up and there's no chance of a missed kiss. Watch as you tilt to make sure that your partner has already tilted.
- Relax your lips by parting them ever so slightly.
- Look inviting and approachable!
- Break the "touch barrier." Touch the person lightly on the arm or shoulder when you're talking
- Look at their lips. Make eye contact and then move your gaze briefly down to the person's lips.
- Depending on your starting position you may need only to turn your head, or you may need to lean in a bit. You may want to use your hands to gently urge your partner’s body or head into position
- Another important aspect of kissing is to use the middle part of the tongue in your kiss because of the large number of sensitive nerve endings there. The kiss you give your partner will be positively electrifying!
- Men and women both thought the idea of kissing someone who was clean, had beautifully full and shapely lips, who was attractive, and who possessed a great smile and nice teeth was a “10” on the kissable scale. Guys also felt that if a woman seemed open and friendly, she was more likely to be the recipient of a romantically spontaneous kiss than a woman that seemed uptight.
The Lip Lock
As your lips make contact with theirs, pucker them slightly and close your eyes. If you over pucker your lips will become tense, which is better for the platonic peck, not for romance.
Kiss your partner's upper or lower lip gently, then pull away slightly.
Kiss your partner's upper or lower lip again, so that their lip goes between yours.
Switch to the other lip. If you were kissing their upper lip, now go to their lower lip, and vice versa.
The French kiss
Slowly open your mouth a little bit more and gently push your tongue a little farther into their mouth until the tip of your tongue meets the tip of theirs. Let your tongues brush against each other briefly and gently and then pull it away, back into your own mouth. Close your mouth a little and open it again to start another kiss.
The Platonic Peck
Pucker your lips more tightly than you would for a romantic kiss. To know if you're puckering your lips correctly, kiss in the air. How loud is the kissing noise? It should be a clearly audible "pop" of your lips as you part them while sucking air in. A romantic kiss will barely make this noise because your lips are much more relaxed.
Don't be too self-conscious
You will not kiss as well if your mind is somewhere else. For example, when kissing, try to avoid thoughts like "What is he/she thinking about?", "Do I look good tonight?", or anything else. Don't be too self-conscious.
