The Art of Kissing

Why do we kiss? There are many reasons for someone to give another a kiss. Kissing can be a flirtatious gesture.

Kisses are exchanged every day by those greeting each other or saying goodbye.

First things first, you need to ensure that before you embark on the journey of kissing your loved one that you are ready.  So pucker up buttercup, here are a few tips to perfect your pout and make you a great kisser;

  • Ensure you have clean teeth and fresh breath; no one wants to kiss a mouth full of ‘just devoured lunch’, which reeks of garlic or onion!  Don’t be so bold and go for one of those curiously strong mints, you’re going for a kiss, not a job interview.  Maintain regular dental hygiene — brush, floss and rinse.  If you need a quick breath booster, opt for a lemon drop.
