On July 1, we Canadians celebrate Canada Day; on July 4, our neighbors to the south celebrate Independence Day. And what do our friends in the UK celebrate in July? National Kissing Day, thatís what. Though not officially a holiday (at least not yet!), many around the world will be sure to be puckering up their lips on July 6 for a taste of one of life's delectable pleasures. Iím in; are you?
Seriously though, during one of my radio interviews, I was asked if there is a right or wrong way to kiss. My answer? It's really a matter of what turns you on. Personally, nothing turns me off more than a lack of personal hygiene ó bad breath or food between the teeth. I also donít like the sloppy, wet kiss. Ask my sweetheart; he knows better.
When I put this question to my friends, some of them shared that they absolutely detest dry, scaly lips. Gosh, I hadnít thought of that one, but then again, Iíve yet to experience it. Thank goodness! Then there are others who donít like the five oíclock shadow on their man. I happen to enjoy that except, of course, if the kissing were to become very passionate. Ouch! And letís not forget the invasion of the tongue snatcher, otherwise, known as the “French Kiss.” Some actually refer to this kiss as the “Soul Kiss” because the life and soul are thought to pass through the mouth's breath in the exchange across the tongues. Many cringe at the idea. What can I say; Iíve been converted. I had no choice but to ... since my guy is French (wink, wink).
Here are some fun kisses you may want to explore on National Kissing Day. Who am I kidding? Why would anyone want to restrict kissing to one day? Have fun smooching and, remember, if things should dry up, thereís always lip balm!
Earlobe Kiss - Gently sip and suck the earlobe.
Eyelid Kiss - While your partnerís eyes are closed, ever so gently kiss the spot right below the brow.
Hostage Kiss - Cover your lips with tape and get your loverís attention. As your partner gets closer to you, make noises like you're trying to say something and motion as if you can't get the tape off. Once your partner removes the tape from your mouth to hear what you're trying to say, shout: "I've been saving my lips all day just for you!" Then kiss your love passionately!
Lip Lock Ė Whenever you and your partner are separated for an extended period of time (this includes an 8-hour day), first greet each other with a kiss. Take 10 seconds Ö longer if needed and get reconnected. Caution: it may require repeating ― and often.
Neck Nibble Kiss - Gently nibble up and down your partnerís neck, ending with a light kiss on the lips.
