Keep Your Lips Moisturized

This is a great way to start your kiss, as dry lips can be quite uncomfortable. Your partner will notice and might not want to continue if it feels like sandpaper rubbing against their face! You may consider using lip balm or Vaseline before kissing or during breaks in the make-out session. Still, you should apply this right after washing your face at night for optimal moisturizing. ​If you don’t have any on hand, some natural alternatives are olive oil or coconut oil. Just make sure not to lick your lips after applying them—that will dry them out more.

Having smooth and soft skin can increase the satisfaction of a kiss for both parties. It also feels nice when someone kisses you back gently with soft lips. This might seem like an odd thing to consider in terms of kissing, but it makes a big difference if there’s lots of friction involved. 

Passionately Caress Your Partner—Face, Neck, Back

Kissing is one of the essential parts of a relationship. Not only does it show how you feel about your partner, but it also can be an expression of love and affection. If kissing isn’t something that comes naturally to you, don’t worry—there are many ways that everyone can learn how to kiss well.

For example, use your hands to hold your partner and passionately caress your partner while kissing them; face, neck, back, and everywhere really.

Kiss Slowly and Intently

The first kiss is nerve-wracking for many people. Even if you’ve kissed before, it can be challenging to know what to do when the time comes. After all, there are so many different types of kisses, and not everyone kisses in the same way or with the same intensity level. So when trying new things like this, start slow—and then go lower from there (get it?). 

Kiss slowly just once upon meeting for the first time. Press your lips together gently but firmly while moving them slightly back and forth a couple of times. Kissing slowly and intently will make the make-out session more intimate, and you will enjoy it!

Pause for Seconds Without Stopping the Kiss 

If your goal is to become an expert kisser —someone whose lips send shivers down another person’s spine—you need to start by practicing.

Kissing is all about intimacy, exploration, and passion. Kissing someone can indicate whether or not you’re interested in a relationship with that person, as well as being one of the most pleasurable experiences known to humans. 

So how do you get good at kissing? First, pause for seconds without stopping the kiss. Then, you can make it more romantic by breaking the kiss and looking into each other’s eyes. Or you could take a minute to just enjoy the feel of your partner’s lips against yours before resuming with the kissing.

Whisper Words Mid-Kisses

Talking during a kiss can be awkward, but it’s essential to stay connected with your partner in any way you can. Whisper words into their ear when the kissing gets intense. It’s okay if it feels strange at first—it will bring you closer together as a couple over time and allow them to melt into your embrace even more deeply than before! 

When the mood gets intense, gently whisper words into their ear—it can be as simple as “I love you” or something more sexual if that’s what works best for your relationship! Just don’t use inside jokes because it will ruin the moment. Instead, whisper soft nothings in their ear until all communication breaks down between lips and tongues—then continue with more kisses!

Roam a Bit To Their Neck, Cheeks, and Eyes

Kissing is an art form. It requires you to be in the moment and feel your partner’s lips on yours, as well as getting a bit more physical than just kissing their mouth.

There are ways everyone can learn how to kiss well so that no one has any awkwardness or discomfort during such a special time together. Roaming a bit to their neck, cheeks, and eyes while kissing your partner can be a great way to show them just how much they mean to you.

Gently Pull Their Hair for a Deeper Kiss

Do not pull their hair too tightly, or else it could hurt them. Instead, use a gentle and firm grip to hold the strands of hair as you kiss. You should only have your fingertips on their scalp; do not grab onto any skin near the roots of their hair either. This will be very sensitive for them, so proceed with caution.

Always Follow Your Partner’s Leads if Any

It’s the simplest advice, but it can be so hard to put into practice. If you’re nervous or unsure what your partner wants, ask them directly. It may seem silly and awkward at first—like asking if they want a kiss on their cheek or forehead—but doing this shows that you care about how they feel during the moment. Some partners appreciate knowing where things are going, and others will say no thanks when asked (and still enjoy kissing). Most of all: everyone should have fun with kisses! And following your partner’s lead is almost always part of having great fun.

Use Less Saliva Especially When Kiss Roaming

Kissing can be a very romantic and passionate thing. So whether it’s your first kiss or you’re in the middle of a steamy make-out session, there are some things to keep in mind when locking lips with somebody else that will help ensure everyone leaves happy.

Don’t use too much saliva while smooching around—you don’t want this action getting out of hand! Also, when joining two pairs of lips together, try not to let excess spit drip from either side as it may turn into an unpleasant surprise.

All in all

Kissing is an art, and it takes lots of practice to become a master. But with these tips, you should be well on your way to becoming an incredible kisser.
