Don't Kiss Her! (And Other Good Advice)

advertisement

In Gallup’s 2007 study of  1,041  college students, 66 per cent of the women reported being so turned off by kisses that their interest in the men evaporated. On the other hand, being a great kisser can dramatically boost the frequency and quality of your bedroom action, studies suggest. How can you seal it with a kiss?

Don't Kiss On The First Date
“I love it when the tension builds up so much that it feels like we’ve been waiting ages for the kiss, and then we can’t stop for hours,” says brand manager Laura, 29. “If you kiss on the first date, it’s usually a boring peck and there’s no tension behind it. The best ones are worth waiting for.” So wait for the second or third date instead. 
 
Keep Breath Mints Handy
The University at Albany study showed that the appearance of a man’s teeth helps determine his “kissability”. Women in the study were also more likely than men to factor in chemical cues – his breath, for example, and the taste of his mouth. When it's time to make your move, don't forget to pop into the bathroom to make sure nothing's stuck between your teeth, then pop an after-dinner mint.
 
Make Sure She's Ready
The key is not to catch her unprepared. “It’s a negotiation, usually based on non-verbal  cues, to show that a person’s available and to see if the other person is interested,” says anthropologist David Givens, PhD, author of Love Signals.
 
Watch her lips – clamped means rejection (but you should know that already). The mouth is “the gatekeeper of the body” and surrounded by nerve endings, says Rutgers University anthropology professor Helen Fisher, PhD, author of Why We Love. If they want to, “women tend to get into a position to let themselves be kissed.”

No Tongue, Yet
“Kiss lightly around her mouth, on her cheeks or on her neck – that’s a very sensual thing to do,” says Andrea Demirjian, who interviewed 250 women and men for her book, Kissing: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About One of Life’s Sweetest Pleasures. “Then when you reach her mouth, kiss her very softly  on the lips – no insert-tongue-here kisses. Going slowly is sure to entice her.”
