"You should go out with me, I'm a really good kisser"
"Yeah right... everyone thinks they're a really good kisser".
Lines from something I was watching yesterday, and paradoxically it hit me for the first time, everyone does think they're a really good kisser.
Some years ago my friend used to go on and on about how great her kissing skills were. She'd swear that every guy who kissed her kept coming back for more. One day we got tired of hearing about this legendary kissing and asked her to describe it. Then she said "first I slowly run my tongue over his upper lip, then I suck it small. Then I run my tongue over his lower lip, I suck that one small too. Then I will now put my tongue in his mouth and suck his own tongue"
I remember thinking EEEEEW! But you couldn't tell sister nothing, as far as she was concerned, she was the one who created the French kiss!
Just like any normal person, I love kissing, there's nothing more leg-popping than a good kiss. But like most experienced people, I've had my fair share of horrid kisses. Very. Horrid. Kisses.
In my quiet time, i'd look back, traumatized, and try to heal the mental scars such kisses left. And I would ask myself, "Why would someone kiss me so disgustingly yet so confidently?" It then occurred to me that they must be that confident because they've kissed other people that way over time and those people must have been fine with it.
That just goes to show that a "good kiss" is very likely subjective; what I term a great kiss might actually make you gag!
And just in case you're wondering, this is what a good kiss is to me; it starts slow and gently, it ALWAYS starts with the lips alone. If you're both feeling that and things start to get heavy then it's ok to introduce the tongue, but just a bit of it, the heavier things get the more tongue is introduced. But NEVER at any point should a whole tongue or even half be shoved into anyone's mouth. Also teeth MUST NOT touch, teeth have no place in a kiss, much less a good one, and once you feel saliva being transferred into your mouth it's no longer a kiss, it's an assault. Yuck!
You know the only reason I'm posting this is to know YOUR idea of a good kiss. So tell us people, what makes someone a good kisser?
And I'm always up for "my worst kiss" stories, so SPILLLL! All of it. Tell me about those horrid "deal breaker" kisses that turned potential love interests to virtual enemies. Haha! The weekend is here, it's okay to have some fun, yes?
Have a great weekend guys. TGIF.
