What’s better than a great kiss? Absolutely nothing, sorry to break it to you. One of the most intimate ways you can connect with another person is with a passionate kiss on the lips. It confirms your feelings for one another plus it’s fun! Kissing styles are incredibly unique so it’s important to find out what’s your partners favorite. Some like it soft and gentle, others like it rough and passionate. There is no shame in saying what you like. We’re here to tell you that expressing your preferences will only make your love life all the more romantic.
CONSENT IS SEXY
First and foremost, kissing someone new can be exciting but it should ALWAYS be consensual. Asking for consent is sexy so don’t be nervous. A romantic “can I kiss you” from the right person could be a welcoming surprise.
BE IN THE MOMENT
A bad kisser is always the one who isn’t giving their partner the full attention they deserve. If you get distracted, (which if you are what is wrong with you), you will miss out on important cues your partner is sending. If they are loving the way you are kissing them, they might start to softly moan or lean into you. Physical ques are just as important as verbal ques. Don’t. Miss. Them.
USE YOUR HANDS
Kissing is more than just the lips. Hold their hand, bring it to your face, or grab their waist and watch the magic happen. You have to learn how to feel your partner. Enjoy them. Celebrate them. Sharing a passionate kiss will only strengthen your bond. Body language is always taken for granted but is a powerful player in the field of love. In the end, everyone wants to feel wanted. Show them just how much you care for them.
Although, please be gentle… or maybe not so gentle… but don’t forget to ask what THEY prefer. Spice up any great make out session with a little nibble on the lips.
KEEP YOUR LIPS KISSABLE
NO MATTER HOW GREAT A KISSER YOU ARE, no one likes dry cracked lips. Please, please, please, please make sure your lips are ready for a kiss because if not there is no telling what disaster will ensue. Nothing can ruin a moment like a gross mouth. Now would be the time to buy a great lip balm. Also regularly exfoliating your lips with a wet washcloth or sugary lip scrub will only up your make out game.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE FRENCH
No, not Paris, we’re talking about French kissing. Do you know why it’s called “French kissing?” According to our research, it’s because this tongue kiss was practiced by the people of Brittany, France dating back to the 1920s! Many people love to French kiss but not everyone loves tons of saliva. So, go easy, and enjoy the moment. Slowly introduce your tongue into your partners mouth by opening yours slightly. Body language helps a lot here so make sure you’re paying attention. The chemistry that French kissing creates is mind blowing. You’re welcome.
THERE’S NO ONE PERFECT KISS
Ask for consent. Know your partner. Read the body language. Use your hands and most importantly, K.I.S.S. Keep it simple silly.
Have fun and be safe! Remember, making out is an art form and you’re the painter. Make your next make out memorable, we’re rooting for you!
