Want to be a good kisser? Learn what to do and what not to do.
Nine out of ten people say they would refuse to date someone who is a bad kisser, while one out of five say they’d date someone unattractive if that person was a great kisser. So let’s get started.
Step 1: Freshen your breath
Make sure you have fresh breath. There’s no excuse not to these days, what with powdered mouthwash packets and disposable teeth wipes on the market.
Step 2: Vary technique and tempo
Keep things interesting by varying your technique and tempo—flick and rotate your tongue; alternate between gentle nibbling and passionate devouring; keep your lips moving over theirs.
Keep it wet but not a washout—no one likes to be slobbered on.
Step 3: Give them what they want
Give them what they want. For guys, this means kissing her neck, since 90 percent of women rate a neck kiss more stimulating than a French one. For gals, it means gently biting his lips and earlobe.
Step 4: Use your hands
Remember to caress your partner while you kiss. That’s caress, guys, not grope like a horny high-schooler.
Another tip for the men: Try holding her face in your hands as you kiss her. Women love that.
Step 5: Don’t perform a tonsillectomy
Keep your tongue in the front half of the other person’s mouth. People want to be kissed, not gagged.
Step 6: Moan softly
Don’t be afraid to moan softly and breathe heavily. There’s no bigger turn-on than knowing you’re turning on someone else.
