Planning on welcoming the new year with a little lip action? Smooching is a whole lot more than just lips against lips! Here’s what you may not know before locking lips.
1. There are tons of nerve endings in your lips (100 times more than in your fingertips!) that stimulates desire. That’s why smooching before, during, and after sex can be extremely arousing and satisfying.
2. Pay attention to those “see you later” pecks. If your guy routinely only ever gives you a quick kiss on the cheek when saying good-bye, it could be that he’s guarded and doesn’t emote easily. If this is a recent develop, it could a warning sign that he’s feeling ambivalent about the relationship.
3. If your kisses are lacking a little fire, you can easily turn up the intimacy by closing the ‘A-frame’: a smooching stance in which you and your partner are in the middle of a kiss but your hips are a mile apart. By pressing your hips together, the degree of desire quickly rises. Try it!
4. When coy kisses aren’t going to cut it, here’s why you should let loose. Passionate kisses elevate blood pressure and cause your heart to beat faster, getting you more excited and making it easier for you to reach orgasm.
