Whether you’re a soft-lipped or firmed-lip kisser, smooching is key to seduction, romantic attachment and sexual arousal. Unfortunately in long term relationships, we often refrain from kissing and push it aside in favor of other forms of foreplay. This is a shame, as research suggests that kissing is not only good for your health, but also for your relationship. In one study, couples who were instructed to kiss more often reported fewer fights, greater relationship satisfaction, less stress and lower cholesterol. In addition to lowering levels of cortisol (a stress hormone), kissing has also primes the parasympathetic nervous system, which is essential to sexual response.
But like most good things, the art of kissing doesn’t always come naturally. So check out following suggestions and techniques to learn a few new tricks designed with your health and love life in mind:
Give your honey a peek into your sexual skills as you expertly trace your tongue around the curves of her lips paying extra attention to the thin skin in the corners.
Research suggests that men tend to prefer deeper, wetter kissing, so slide your tongue inside and twirl it around s-l-o-w-l-y allowing your lips to passionately engulf his lips.
As you kiss, you not only exchange energy and saliva, which contains testosterone, but a spike in dopamine creates a natural high. Prolong the euphoria by pressing your lips passionately into hers while resting your tongue inside of her mouth without moving. Breathe deeply through your nose as your pupils dilate and the blood rushes to the surface of your skin.
You’re probably familiar with the frenulum of the penis, but this sensitive piece of connective tissue also exists just inside the lips. Slide your tongue inside and twirl it teasingly around the shallow space between his upper lips and teeth before moving on to deep, french kissing.

If your sweetheart doesn’t like kissing as much as you do, train them to associate kissing with sex: simply kiss passionately as they reach orgasm so that their mind and body learn to connect kissing with the heights of pleasure.
