Re: Your First French Kiss & Kissing Discussion
Remember that French kissing can quickly unhinge passions. Start with gentle pecks and tongue-free kisses as you get to know someone.
When you're ready to French kiss, lean toward your date with your head tilted slightly to avoid bumping noses. Men may wrap their arms around a date's waist; women may wrap their arms around a date's neck.
Make eye contact as you lean toward one another but close your eyes as the lips meet. Inadvertent eye-contact mid-kiss can be quite awkward.
As you lean in for the kiss, have your lips parted ever so slightly and inhale through your mouth to heighten the senses and to avoid breathing on your date.
Allow your lips to brush against each others to create light, feathery kisses. Keep the tongue in your mouth initially.
As the kiss warms up, allow your tongue to flicker onto your date's lips. Don't let your tongue linger--keep the flickers quick and gentle.
If your date responds in kind, let your tongue extend back toward his or her tongue. Keep the movement light and gentle--tongue wrestling is a no-no.
Breathe through your nose as your tongues touch playfully and sensually.
Lose yourself in the moment: give complete attention to the kiss. If your mind is on anything else, you're missing out on the full experience.
End the kiss. French kissing can get messy if continued without breathers. Take time to nuzzle necks, nibble ears or whisper sweet nothings before diving in for another kiss.
