According to some researchers kissing began millions of years ago as a result of mouth-to-mouth feeding, with mammal mothers chewing food and then “forcing it” into the mouths of their young.
“From these observations, it is claimed that humans also learned kissing from exchanging food between mothers and their offspring,” Texas A&M University anthropologist Vaughn Bryant, who has long researched the history and spread of kissing, told Discovery News.
“However, if this were true and it was innate, then why didn’t all humans kiss? We know that many cultural groups did not kiss and knew nothing about it until they were shown,” Bryant said.
While the true origin of kissing remains a mystery, historians have found in India the earliest references to the practice.
When kissing your partner, you should always remember that kissing doesn’t have to be restricted to just the lips; you can explore the cheeks, chin, eyelids, tongue, forehead, neck, or even the breast if you are really in love with your partner! There are also many different styles of kissing that you will want to experiment with, like French kissing or using your tongues while you kiss your lover.
The style and type actually don’t matter! The only thing that matters is that you are enjoying it, and she/he is enjoying it. If not, something will eventually fall into place, and you will then begin to enjoy it!
Below are 10 tips and tricks to kiss your partner and make her long for more
You won’t believe the number of people who stress over kissing! The whole idea of kissing is that you and another person show your love in such an immensely sensational way, that you both find yourselves in the most magical experience of a lifetime! So what I suggest to you, is that when you’re kissing you empty your head of stressful thoughts, and just go with the flow of the kissing… This is what you should always do on the first kiss, as it means you can discover what the other person likes with their kissing.
2. Have Fresh Breath
This is a very important tip for kissing as if you don’t have fresh-smelling breath you may not get your kiss at all! My advice is to always have a spare mint or piece of gum on you so that after having a meal you can freshen up before the big kiss! Always remember to brush your teeth every morning and night, for long-lasting mouth cleanliness. A side note is to often check your mouth hygiene with your dentist, and if possible, pay a bit extra for private dental treatment. When in a relationship, it’s incredibly important that you are sure that your mouth is as clean as possible.
3. Keep Your Lips Moist
Having moist lips is something you definitely need for a great kiss to form, and it can be done by simply licking your lips… I wouldn’t recommend using lip gloss as it will make your lips overly slimy, and your lips will be sliding all over the place! However, when you just gently lick your lips with your tongue, your experience with kissing will be a lot more pleasant than ever before. Especially, if you usually have dry or cracked lips, which are unpleasant, to say the least.
4. Check the Position of Your Head
This is an amazing tip for kissing, as all the professionals in love and relationships do it this way all the time! In fact, I can probably assume you’ve seen this type of thing on a film, but just in case you haven’t I’ll go through it with you…
Okay, so when you see that your partner is tilting their head to one side or another, you must tilt the other way while going in for the kiss. Not only does this prevent you from banging noses, but you also will have a luxurious kiss with the position that you’re in! Simple right? Just make sure that it follows smoothly, and that you both feel happy with what’s going on.
5. Kiss Softly
If you’re going in too hard with your lips, I think it’s best if you soften up a little! Seriously as much as it might be fun to be slightly rougher with your kissing, you may hurt them! Therefore, if this is your first time kissing with them, you want to go as soft as it seems necessary to make sure no one gets a nasty scare! But make sure that you’re not being overly soft, otherwise, she/he might think you’re nervous or something…
6. Make Your Lips Tasty With Lip Balm
Hey! Why not surprise your partner with a nice-tasting lip balm, and you’ll see the delight on their faces instantly! You’ll not believe how much your partner will love your kissing once you add a little flavour to it, and the great thing is that lip balm is also hygienic so why not try some!? A little tip I’d like to give you is that you should buy some quality lip balm and not some of that cheap and nasty rubbish you might find on the street. If you need some help finding some decent lip balm I have left some ideas to the right.
7. Close Your Eyes
By closing your eyes you may find that the whole kiss is that much more beautiful than before… Something that you can keep in mind while kissing with your eyes shut is that you shouldn’t go to sleep as it can be very embarrassing! Also, you’ll lose a loved one… you don’t want that!
8. Nip Your Partner’s Lips Lightly
(Don’t get confused by the word “nip”; you don’t go anywhere near a woman’s breast during this kiss!) A great tip for kissing is once you have kissed with your partner a few times before, you can go for a very risky yet pleasurable method of kissing which involves gently nipping your partner’s lip… However, if you nip too hard you’re going to give an unpleasant shock to your partner, so I highly recommend having caution while doing this! Nevertheless, it is a very good way to spice up your kissing and it will leave your partner speechless…
9. Surprise Your Partner With a Kiss
If you really want to impress your partner, you can go up to them while they’re on the sofa at home, and kiss them on the eyelids so that they wake up to a lovely surprise of you kissing them. Be careful that the person you’re kissing doesn’t react badly, and accidentally hit you in the face… It can happen trust me! But if you do it correctly you will share a very good kiss, which could just put them in a really good mood for the rest of the day.
10. Kiss Alone
You and your beloved should try to kiss away from an audience of people since this can cause a lot of embarrassment or nervousness! Therefore, try to go somewhere more secret or at least where there aren’t any more than 2 people in the area. (You and her/him.) That way you’ll minimize the chance of stirring up feelings of nervousness or feeling embarrassed! However, if your lover feels perfectly fine kissing in public, then there should be no reason for you to feel any different. So why not relax and enjoy the ride!?
