Better Kissing May Improve The Romance – Here’s How
Kissing. It’s the most common way for us to interact with our spouse or romantic partner (in public, anyway). But can we make it better for that ‘special someone’? According to WebMD.com [yeah, Web MD. Who'd've thought?], the answer is “yes”.
First, let’s find out what to avoid. According to Michael Christian, who wrote The Art Of Kissing [under the pseudonym "William Cane"], women’s biggest complaint is men being too aggressive with their tongues. Men, meanwhile, say women don’t open their mouths enough during a kiss [making it harder, one supposes, to use a tongue aggressively during a kiss].
Both sexes say a big problem is a lack of variety in kisses. Christian’s advice: kiss different parts of the face. He adds that the ears and neck are especially sensitive, which adds a special tingle to your romantic moment. If you want to try something very interesting, Christian suggests a gentle bite on the lower lip, or a nibble on the earlobe.
Christian says if you’re not happy with your partner’s kissing technique, you should talk about it with that person. But don’t do it right after a kiss, as that might come off as a rebuke.
Dating expert Marilyn Anderson notes that pleasing your partner and yourself are the keys to a truly memorable kiss. She says that a kiss should say “Baby, there’s more where that came from” without words. And don’t stop those steamy kissing sessions just because you’ve been together a while. A recent Redbook poll says almost 80 % of women don’t kiss their husbands as much as they’d like.
