When you were a teenager, chances are you spent a good deal of time thinking about (and perhaps even practicing) your kissing techniques. But once you’re a few years into adulthood, it’s easy to just let autopilot take over whenever it’s time to lock lips. Taking a few moments to get back to the fundamentals of smooching just might reignite your relationship. By becoming aware of the kissing mistakes you’re making (and how to fix them), you and your SO can get closer than ever. If nothing else, you’ll have a blast practicing new techniques.
Of course “mistake” might be too harsh of a term. If either you or your partner prefer super fast, sloppy kisses, then go for it! This list can serve as a jumping-off point for other techniques you might enjoy trying out. There’s no harm in trying something different, right? You just might find your new favorite kissing technique.
By reviewing what you and your partner really enjoy in kissing, you can make your relationship that much stronger. After all, kissing is just a form of communication without words. So you and your SO can have a lot of fun learning the best ways to meet one another’s needs.
