There are no such things as kissing lessons. You learn it yourself in practice. It’s not difficult either. Tongue kissing often starts with kissing on the lips. You move your lips, and explore the other person's lips gently with your own. Then you turn your head to one side a little, so your noses don’t get in the way, you open your mouth, and slowly let your tongue slip inside. If it feels good, you’re doing it right!
What feels nice?
Make sure the other person is also enjoying it. And make clear to them what you like. Some people like wet lips, others don’t. Some like kissing gently, others like having the other person’s tongue deep inside their mouth.
Build up slowly
Ten minutes nonstop kissing is pretty intense. Stop now and then and look each other in the eyes. Build up slowly. If you can tell the other person wants to stop, it doesn’t matter, just try again later.
Make sure your breath is fresh
Kissing can be really nice. But it’s not much fun if your breath smells. A lot of people sometimes have bad breath. It’s usually when you wake up in the morning. Brushing your teeth well and flossing helps. And watch what you eat – strong spices and garlic can make your breath smell. But if you eat the same thing as the other person, you don’t notice it as much.
Kissing and caressing
Some people keep their eyes shut when they kiss. Other people find it exciting to keep their eyes open. Some people make little noises, others don’t make a sound.
Once you’re kissing, you can also use your hands. You can caress each other at the same time, and explore each other’s sensitive places. Kissing can also lead on to having sex – but it doesn’t have to.
Did you know...?
You can lose weight by kissing passionately! At least, you use 6.4 calories a minute, so ten minutes of kissing uses up as many calories as there are in a biscuit.
And kissing makes your heartbeat increase from 70 beats a minute to between 100 and 150.
