10 Different Kisses and What They Mean

 
Different Types of Kisses to Try

Cheek Kiss
A peck on the cheek for a first date is also a friendly way of greeting someone. A woman can signal she wants a cheek kiss by leaning in. To kiss your date or partner on the cheek put your hands on the man’s arms lightly and offer your cheek. For the man reach out and rest your hands lightly on the shoulders and gently move in to kiss the cheek.

Forehead or Top of the Head Kiss- If it is the only kind of kiss you get it signal I am your big brother or big sister kiss. Or if you have kissed before it signals I feel protectiveness and nurturing as well as lust for you.

Earlobe Kiss
This kiss is more sensuous. The earlobes are a sensitive area and kissing or nibbling or sucking on them can be very arousing.
French Kiss
This is the most popular and widely known kiss. It involves closeness along with a hint of sexual excitement. It is a beautiful experience. But it is definitely not a first or second date kind of a kiss. You have to start with a normal lip to lip kiss and then slowly bring your tongue into play. Let your tongues brush against each other but don't go too deep.

Don't rush take it slow. Recognize body cues that show your kissing partner wants to kiss or is closed to the kiss open vs. closed windows, blocking gestures, retreat.

Butterfly Kiss
This is a simple and sweet type of kiss that signals a sweet and tender trusting relationship. Because it would indicate that your partner loves only you. To perform the butterfly kiss, bring your face very close to your partner's face so that your eyelashes are touching. Now flutter your eyelashes like the fluttering of a butterfly's wings.

Single-Lip Kiss
This is again a very sensual kind of a kiss. To do it just take your partners lip and suck it with two of your lips. Do it very gently as doing it hard will make their lip go numb and it might even be painful. It is a nice change from the usual types of kisses.

Eskimo Kiss

In the Eskimo kiss you have to get your face close to your partner's and rub your nose against theirs. Do it gently to enjoy it. Based on Greeting followed by the Eskimos.
Angel Kiss
In this kiss you lightly touch your partner's eyes with your lips. It is a very caring and loving gesture. This is a very sweet gentle type of kiss. Men just to let you know a woman feels especially cherished when you gently and loving give an angel kiss.

Secret Benefits of Kissing


“A kiss is the contraction of mouth due to the expansion of the heart.”       

Secret Benefits of Kissing 

When you kiss your sweetie this Valentine's Day, you are practicing a nonverbal interaction that takes place in over 90 percent of human cultures.  

Research shows that kissing or if you prefer the scientific term Osculation, is often the deciding factor in selecting a sexual partner as well as first “kiss or miss” determiner of selecting a life partner, especially for women.
Kissing evolved to stimulate all three distinct brain systems involved in mating and reproduction those that involve sex drive, romantic love, and attachment. In fact more of your brain lights up during kissing than it does for other later romantic activity. Sex drive compels us to seek partners, romantic love tells us to commit to one, and attachment helps us tolerate this person (at least long enough to have a child). 
·         Kissing is a stress reliever. Researchers found that in long term relationships the more the couple kissed the more their stress hormone cortisol levels declined. 
 
·         Kissing is good for your health. According to the Kinsey Institute New Report on Sex; a passionate kiss burns 6.4 calories per minute. (And it is a lot more fun than jogging on a treadmill that burns not much more: 11.2 calories per minute.)
 
·         Why women kiss before they say, “I do.” Studies reveal many women use information they gain through kissing to decide on a mate. Because a woman tends to be attracted to male partners with a different immune system makeup from her own and she detects this information through smell when they kiss.
 
·         Have a great first kiss or else. A bad first kiss can kill a would-be romance faster than a woman can reapply her lipstick. In a S.U.N.Y. of Albany survey, a higher number of women than men said they would not have sex with a poor kisser and more than 69 percent of women say they would end the relationship if the first kiss with their partner was bad. 
 
·         A kiss is the best “On” button.  Women are stimulated faster by kissing than any other physical activity to prompt them to want to engage in sex. Yes you read that right. 
 
·         Kissing can improve your immune system by building anti-bodies to foreign bacteria. Don't worry; about 95% of your partner's bacteria is probably friendly and familiar to your own body already.
 
·         Women like kissing before, during, and after sex. Men use it to get sex then they are more likely to go to sleep.
 
·         French kiss for workout - A simple pucker kiss takes only two muscles, but all 34 of your facial muscles get a workout during a deep French kiss.
 
·         Men like French kissing for a reason - Research shows that men show a preference for French kissing. Scientist explains this preference. Wet, open-mouthed kisses allow men to dose women with small amounts of libido-raising testosterone via their saliva. Over time, weeks or months of this dosing increase her testosterone which can enhance her libido. 
 
·         More Kissing More Fun- Testosterone doping can explain why if you stop kissing before you make love a woman’s libido may go down. This should be great motivation to kiss and kiss again.
 
·         What he thinks and she thinks about during kissing – Because of the chemical and brain differences in genders research suggests that when a woman kisses a man he thinks, “Oh boy we are going to get more physically close.” And when a man kisses a women she thinks, “Oh boy, we are getting more emotionally close.”
