Try to think back to the first time you ever kissed someone. In all likelihood, it probably wasn’t that good. And now, try to think back about the kisses that you’ve had since then. You have probably gotten better at it over time, right? If not, then that’s just sad and this article is definitely for you. But even if you think that your kissing game is on point, you need to know that there is always room for improvement.
Even though when you get older, kissing is still going to have to be taken seriously. Sure, having sex and making love is surely going to take center stage. But you still can’t take kissing for granted. You can’t discount it. You have to know that it should still very much be an important part of anyone’s sexual repertoire.
Remember the days of first base? Those late nights sitting on the couch with your crush after your parents went to bed, hoping he’d lean over in the middle of She’s All That and just plant one on you?
As you get older, the rush of being kissed often falls to the shadows, as the spotlight turns to, well, getting laid. But kissing is still an important part of the sexual repertoire.
“First of all, kissing is sex. It is one of the many ways we express ourselves sexually,” says Suzanne Rapley, a certified sex therapist.
And you shouldn’t forget that the lips and mouth are actually loaded with nerve endings. That’s according to Emily deAyala, a certified sex therapist as well. And the manipulation and stimulation of these nerves are actually important in creating a certain sensation in the buildup to sexual intimacy. She adds, “Many people are guilty of jumping into intercourse too quickly, but spending more time making out can do wonders to stimulate sexual pleasure and improve intimacy in the relationship.”
If you are interested in taking your kissing game to the next level, then you should probably give these positions a try.
1. The Side-by-Side Kiss
This is probably the kissing position for a lot of first-time kissers. This is the common kissing position for couples who are sitting alongside one another on a park bench overlooking a view, on the couch watching TV, or on the movie seats watching the cinema screen.
2. The Soft Hickey
The soft hickey is always a really nice way to build up to sex. There’s just something so naturally sexy and romantic about gently sucking on the skin of your partner. It’s the kind of kiss that screams both love and passion at the same time. Be sure to be gentle about it.
3. The Chest-to-Chest Kiss
This is one of the most basic but also most effective kinds of kissing positions. This is when the two of you are both in a standing position as you face one another. You both lock yourselves in a really passionate kiss while your hands travel throughout different parts of each other’s bodies. Add some extra spice and closeness by having your chests get in contact with one another.
4. The Girl-on-Top Kiss
It’s always so sexy whenever the two of you are kissing while you’re lying down. But ideally, you would want the girl to be on top in this scenario. It’s always more likely that the guy would be able to handle having the woman’s dead weight on him.
5. The Tongue-Only Kiss
Hey, it’s called the French kiss for a reason, right? And if there’s one thing the French know how to do, it definitely loves. So don’t be afraid to swap some saliva with your partner by making use of that tongue of yours.
6. The “I Must Have You” Kiss
This is the kiss that requires no words at all. It’s when you both see each other and you immediately jump into a deep and passionate snog with one another. This is the “I must have you” kiss wherein you want to lock lips with one another before you even consider doing anything else.
7. The Spiderman Kiss
Chances are if you are reading this, you haven’t been bitten by a radioactive spider that has given you the power to hang upside down from a web. You are probably already familiar with the Spiderman movie with Tobey Maguire and the amazing kiss he shared with Kirsten Dunst.
You don’t have to be dangling from the ceiling to perform this kiss though. You just have to be lying down. And have her kiss you with the top of her head facing your feet.
8. The Anywhere But The Mouth Kiss
And this is the kind of kiss that will have your partner just hot with anticipation. They will long for you to kiss them in the mouth while you tease them with kisses everywhere else.
