Kissing is an essential element of intimacy. In most cases, even without the use of words, a kiss does initiate intimacy even between uncertain parties. Kissing, however, needs to be done right as it can make or break a meaningful moment.
The Republic Senga offers you some kissing tips that you can use to make your kissing experiences richer.
Tilt your head the proper way
If you’ve ever tilted the wrong way when going in for a kiss, you’ve probably experienced one really awkward moment. However, it turns out more than often, the correct way to tilt your head when going in for a kiss is to the right.
A study found that two-thirds of people tilt their heads to the right when going in for a kiss. So, while it’s not an exact science, teaching yourself to go in for the kiss that way will help eliminate some unpleasant head bopping.
Timing is of the essence
While you may be able to kiss and make up after a fight, catching someone on a bad day will make the kiss less than satisfying.
Kissing someone in a stressful, upsetting, or strange environment makes it less likely that they’ll enjoy the kiss. That’s because of a hormone called cortisol that will inhibit your ability to enjoy the moment.
So, if you’re wanting to plant one on your partner, best to wait until you’re both calm and happy.
Fresh breath is a bonus
This is a no-brainer. It’s best to keep your teeth and oral health nice and up to date anyway, but if you’re planning on kissing a woman, this becomes even more important.
Women are attentive to someone’s breath when they’re kissing and some bad breath will turn them off faster than it would a man. Women in scientific studies took breath into account more often than men did as a factor of enjoying a kiss.
No teeth, please
Do not use your teeth. One of the worst kissing moments is when someone comes in to kiss you and their teeth are there and they knock against your teeth. Now, a tiny love bite on your partner’s lips is great. The best thing to do here starts out with a tiny nibble and gauges their reaction. If they love it, do it again, if they don’t react, maybe keep the nibbling at bay. But, aside from nibbles, teeth are not part of kissing.
Pay attention to your partner
It is important you pay attention to your kissing partner. You should be paying attention to what they are doing, so you can incorporate it into your kissing game. You should also be paying attention to your partner so you can make note of what they like and what they don’t. Listen to their breathing and the sounds they make. If they pull away or seem to get less interested odds are they don’t like what you are doing.
Pause for air
Kissing is just like swimming, take a moment to take a breath, whisper something sweet or something sexy, or just stare at your partner. Just make sure you are both taking a moment to breathe. When you pause you let the tension build, and you get air. Air is important, so come up for air.
Relax, you got this
Quick check, your breath smells good and you are in the moment. Fantastic. From there just trust your instincts and relax. Kiss how you like to be kissed when someone kisses you and their ‘move’ makes you go wow, incorporate it into your moves. When you are kissing someone pays attention to what seems to excite them. It is a lot easier to kiss well than it is to kiss badly. Just relax and go with the flow, you will find your kiss techniques just start to happen. You got this, even if you don’t think you do, confidence and calm will go a long way.
