On July 6th, we celebrate World Kissing Day. While I know that based on the topic of this blog, you are here to learn how to be a great kisser, let’s first address one of my most frequently asked questions as an OB/GYN, can you get a sexually transmitted infection (STI) from kissing?
Here's the bad news…kissing is not a completely risk-free activity. Though it is less common to get a sexually transmitted infection/disease from kissing, it is possible to transmit certain diseases, mainly herpes, and syphilis. It is important to know the sexual history of the person you're swapping spit with. Also, though you may not observe any symptoms, watch for any sores or lesions before kissing.
Now that you know how to be safe, let’s get on to the fun stuff. Everyone likes to be kissed differently -some may like soft slow kissing while others may like more wild action, so you need to find out what your partner likes. You can start with simple kisses with closed lips which is excellent for a hello or good-bye kiss, or regular kisses with open lips. You can even skip right to “The French Kiss,” which involves touching your tongue with your partners.
You can play with your tongue by circling your partners with your own but the key is to be inventive and have fun. No matter which kind of kiss you choose, show some passion. Here are some kissing tips that are sure to help you be a great kisser.
Use your hands to hold your mate’s face, show them that you are in control. A kiss is much more than simply touching lips, it is an expression of love, desire, and passion. feel your partner’s rhythm and match it.
