Most of us believe that although kissing can never be taught, all of us are uncrowned kings and queens who have in time mastered the art of the lips.
There’s nothing quite as expressive as a kiss. It is an expression that transcends all boundaries and is a universally accepted form of showing affection. Depending on the context it is used in, it sends across a different message. Here’s a look at some of the rather interesting and hugely popular kisses.
This is a sweet, comforting kiss. You could practice this by gently and ever so lightly kissing your partner either on the eyelids or right next to the eyes. This works especially well with the fairer sex.
A friendly, ‘I really like you’ kiss, this one is ideal on a first date. With your hands on your partner’s shoulders, gently brush your lips across her cheek.
With your faces less than a breath away, flutter your eyelids against your partner’s. If done correctly, the fluttering sensation will match the one in your heart.
If you are in a mood to experiment, then this is just the kiss for you. Put a small piece of ice in your mouth, and pass the ice using your tongue while kissing. It’s a sensual French kiss with a twist of cold.
Bring your faces close to each other, and gently rub the tips of your noses together. This is a real adorable kiss, and you can try this out when you are in an especially cute mood.
Gently nibble and suck on the earlobe. You might want to keep the noise down though, ‘cos you definitely don’t want to sound like a vacuum cleaner in your partner’s ears. This goes a long way in foreplay.
French kissing involves the tongue. Some call this the “Soul Kiss” because the life and soul are thought to pass through the mouth’s breath in the exchange across tongues.
The “motherly” kiss or “just friends” kiss, the forehead kiss can be a comforting kiss to anyone. As the name suggests, you gently kiss the person on the forehead.
A rather ‘adventurous’ kiss, this may tickle, but relax and enjoy it! To give a toe kiss, gently suck on the toes, and then lightly kiss the foot. It helps to gently massage the base of the foot while performing the kiss.
You don’t want to get a little too eager, and get your fangs out! The object is not to draw blood, but to gently leave a mark that will prove that your interlude was not a dream. This is often included in erotic foreplay. To do this, gently suck on the skin (mostly around the neck or the shoulder), creating a vacuum, for about 15 seconds. If you do this right, you should be able to see the ‘love bite’ in a few minutes.
Gently raise her hand to your lips, and lightly kiss the top of her hand. Historically, this kiss was performed with a bow, which showed deference to a lady.
Sip on some wine or a drink, and get your partner to have some other drink. Now kiss with the drink in your mouth, and enjoy the interesting combination of the drinks, coupled with the intensity of the kiss. You might want to be careful with choosing drinks that go well together though.
Send your lover a kiss in a love letter by writing the letter “x” several times in a row at the bottom of a letter.
Surprise your lover with a gentle holiday kiss under the mistletoe. This is also a good method for shyer individuals to steal a kiss from a potential lover.
Come up behind the person you want to kiss, and lightly lick the back of his/her neck. Follow it up with a series of kisses, slowly increasing the intensity each time. Unless of course you are in an extremely adventurous mood, and don’t want to hear from your date again, you definitely don’t want to try this on your first date.
While kissing, you don’t want to plan things, just go with the flow. Savor the moment, and enjoy each other’s company. Just a word of advice though, you don’t want to keep your mouth wide open, like a blue whale, nor would you want to keep it shut tight like a goldfish.
