If you have ever wondered where you fell on the kissing spectrum, these tricks, and tips are here to help to improve your game.
It goes without a saying that when you’re inches from someone’s face, no one wants to inhale whiffs of stale coffee or a mouthful of garlic and onion. A little self-awareness goes a long way—avoid overly pungent foods or pack a teeny pack of mints, just in case.
Time the moment right
Follow the other person’s body language cues to know when it is the right time to initiate a kiss. Consent is the key, so it never hurts to ask before leaning in for a smooch if you’re not sure. Just don’t insist on forcing a kiss if it doesn’t feel right, or leave the other person waiting so long that they start questioning whether you’re interested in them.
To be a good kisser first you have to make sure your lips are moisturized. This is a minor step with a major impact on the entire process. You can always tell when someone has dry cracked lips and it can ruin the entire mood. Good kissers do more than a kiss, they also hold your waist or touch the side of your face. When in the process of kissing you want to start off slow, with small pecks. Then, you can add more lip-locking and move forward to rubbing your tongue toward the roof of the person’s mouth.
Avoid stinky food before a kiss
If you know that your chances to make out are very good, then skip the raw onions, garlic, and excessive coffee. Granted, sometimes a hot kiss is not planned, but if you can prep for it, do so.
To make kissing a memorable experience for your man, get your entire body involved. One of the best parts of your body to use while kissing is … your hands.
If you want, just leave them at your side, but this is incredibly boring. A slightly better way to use them is by wrapping them around your partner. An even better way is to run them up and down your partner’s body, making sure to touch him in his most erogenous zones along the way. But, also use your hands to pull your partner in close to you.
Follow your partner’s lead
When it comes to kissing, it’s about compromise- especially if you and your partner don’t have the same techniques, trying letting your partner lead the way.
Mind your tongue
Tongue use can be great…in moderation. Remember, it’s a kiss, not a facial wash. No one likes to be doused in saliva, or have their entire mouth filled by someone’s tongue. Try starting out slow and small with no tongue and cranking up the intensity as a kiss gets more passionate.
Learn your erogenous zones
On that note, don’t forget the grazing the potential of the ear lobes, nose, collarbone, and the neck—just think of all those nerve endings. Love bites aren’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea, so don’t bite down or latch on unless your partner indicates that they’re into it.
Kissing can be overwhelming, but don’t let it overcome you.
Kissing can make you nervous, but don’t lose your cool. Don’t let it get you down. Don’t second guess yourself. Don’t hold back because we all want to be loved, we all want to be held, and we all, so desperately, want that fireworks kiss.
