If you are worried about your kissing abilities, here is how not to be. Most people who don’t know how to kiss mess up the kissing process by going to extremes based on the pressure they apply to the process, though few people might be forceful with their kisses and end up bumping their partners and expressing aggressiveness. Kissing is called an art because when done correctly it can heighten the intimacy and add to the bond between partners and also help heighten the pleasures of lovemaking. But there are also many other benefits.
Benefits of kissing
Kissing stimulates the production of collagen. It opens up your blood vessels and can lower your blood pressure. It boosts the production of ‘happy hormones’ like oxytocin, endorphins, and dopamine, giving you an adrenalin rush of excitement and a feeling of happiness at the same time. This combination of hormones also helps in reducing stress and anxiety. It also boosts your self-esteem.
It also increases saliva production which is important in keeping the teeth and gums healthy by lubricating the mouth with healthy bacteria. This is important to help prevent tooth decay, bad breath, and cavities. An intimate and vigorous make-out session can help burn out a few calories.
Helps you connect better with your partner
While sex is an act of intimacy, kissing can be a measure of compatibility. It can help you determine how the person may be at lovemaking before deciding to go all-in into the sheets and out of those clothes.
It helps to deepen the bond you share with your partner, as it brings you closer not just physically but also emotionally. Also, the way a person kisses can tell a lot about them and help you get to know your partner better.
Kissing is sensual and something that ignites passion. In order to enjoy the kissing process, one needs to go slow and ease their way into every kiss. Being anxious over your kissing abilities might lead to rushing up the process. Nobody wants someone who is hyperactive and all over the place, as kissing is sensual and relaxing. Making you settle down and get engaged in the process.
If you are sure that a kiss is a possibility on a date or a meet-up, the most important thing to check for is bad breath as this can be a huge turn-off. Make sure to pop in some mints, apply a bit of lip balm, and make the kiss something to look forward to for your partner.
