Today, our American friends are celebrating Independence Day. Two days from now, we'll be celebrating yet another holiday–National Kissing Day–July 6. Though not officially a holiday (at least not yet!), many around the world will be puckering up their lips for a taste of one of life's delectable pleasures.
Kissing is not only physically pleasurable and elicits feelings of euphoria, it can do wonders for a person's self-esteem. Kissing also provides several health benefits which you'll find in my article, Pucker Up: The Benefits of Kissing!.
As a Romance Agent, I'm astounded by the number of clients and colleagues who can't recall the last time they and their significant other engaged in a loving embrace. “It was so long ago, I can't remember,” appears to be a recurring theme. Many report the good morning, good night and good-bye kiss ... described as a quick peck with little or no emotion attached. It sounds dreadfully lonely and unfulfilling to me, don't you think? Why then aren't we taking kissing more seriously and making it a meaningful, daily practice in our love relationship?
Contrary to what some may argue, kissing need not lead to sex ... unless, of course, you both want it to. There are more than 500 different types of kissing. For some ideas, be sure to read William Cane's book, “The Book of Kisses”. If you're in the mood for the cherry-on-the-sundae type of kissing, check out my archived rELATIONship article, entitled Kissing 101.
Seriously, we made the effort in the courting stages of our relationships and, let's be honest, we'd all do it again if we were to start a new relationship with someone, so why have some of us decided kissing no longer plays an important role? Kissing creates and helps to maintain intimacy and, for any loving relationship to remain true and last, there must be intimacy. Plain and simple. The question now becomes, “What is it that you want for your relationship?” Join me and support the producers of lip balm! Pucker up, folks!
Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score; Then to that twenty, add a hundred more: A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on, To make that thousand up a million. Treble that million, and when that is done, Let's kiss afresh, as when we first begun.
- Robert Herrick
