10 things you don't know about kissing (or do you?)
1. There are tons of nerve endings...
...in your lips (100 times more than in your fingertips!) that stimulate desire. That's why smooching before, during, and after sex can be extremely arousing and satisfying.
Prattle: There is only one other place that has more nerve endings.... *cough* ...er...kissing.. Kissing is my favorite foreplay, I know I am ready to go after a good make-out session!
Scuttlebutt: Really? And were would that other place be? *innocent*
2. Forty percent of men say that...
...a really long, steamy kiss will get them immediately ready for sex. (Thirty percent said that grabbing their crotch will do it. Duh.)
Scuttlebutt: So what will happen if you combine the long steamy kiss with a little crotch grabbing? *wiggles eyebrows*
Prattle: I believe the man would "cum"bust.. Mr. Prattle has told me to grab his crotch whenever I felt like it!
Scuttlebutt: Well isn't Mr. Prattle a darling! LOL
3. Pay attention to those "See ya later" pecks. If your guy...
...routinely only 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 more recent development, it's a warning sign; he may be feeling ambivalent about the relationship.
Scuttlebutt: Uh huh... good to know that one...
Prattle: *clucks tongue* take it with a grain of salt Ms. Scuttlebutt, if it's something new he might just have a lot on his mind. Don't borrow trouble.
4. Instantly turn up the kissing intimacy by...
...closing the "A-frame": a smooching stance in which you and your guy are in the middle of a smooch but your hips are a mile apart. By pressing your hips together, the degree of desire quickly rises.
Prattle: Smooshing together for a smooch and pressing into each other will turn on the "go" light. *nods head* yup yup yup!
5. The best way to kiss a guy's ear? Kiss and...
...suck on his earlobe for a moment and then trace the outline of his ear with the tip of your tongue. (Bonus points if you whisper something naughty to him.)
Scuttlebutt: *shivers while thinking of this* Oh my... so is there a big difference in how to kiss a woman's ear best?
Prattle: I would also add, nibble on it a bit and then I'm putty in his hands. I told a fellow once, "my ear is not an ice cream cone!"
6. Men initiate open-mouth kissing to transfer...
...libido-boosting testosterone to their partner. So when he's getting a little more aggressive, it's not just about his desire — he wants you to be a bit more amorous too.
Prattle: It also boosts your immune system, kissing is VERY healthy..unless one of you is already sick.. *taps head* lots of useless knowledge in here.. And it can help your relationship stay strong.
7. Men are more than twice as likely...
...to have sex with a bad kisser than are women.
Scuttlebutt: Well of course. Cause they don't really care about the kiss and the connection you can have through kissing, but about how they get in your pants. Right?
Prattle: You have to put in a lot of effort to kiss, effort and restraint. Don't like bad kissers... can't get aroused..
8. When coy kisses aren't going to cut it...
...here's why you should let loose: Passionate kisses elevate your blood pressure and cause your heart to beat faster, getting you more excited, and making it easier for you to reach orgasm.
9. Fifty-four percent of women...
...between the ages of 18 and 24 say they've kissed another girl. That number drops to 43 percent for those between 25 and 34.
Scuttlebutt: So... do you think this is because they are more certain about their sexual preferences or are just too shy or embarrassed to try it?
Prattle: I didn't kiss another girl till I was in my 30's AND comfortable with being sexual.. I do think a woman might think of it more as a stigma when she's older than as "fun" if done in her younger years.
10. During the Middle Ages, people signed legal contracts...
...by making an "X" on the document and then kissing it to pledge their honor. That's how XX became shorthand for a smooch.
Scuttlebutt: Now this was an interesting fact! I like it!
Prattle: xoxo Sealed with a kiss... *sigh*
