4 Ways to Improve Your Kiss

There are few things more magical than a kiss well given. Conversely, there are few things less enticing than a sloppy, sticky, restless kiss without any rhythm or delicacy. While mastering “the art of making out” takes a lot of practice with the right person, there are several ways to make kissing better. Follow the instructions below to learn the basic techniques associated with a wonderful kiss and improve your skills.


Method 1 of 4: Learning the Technique

Improve Your Kissing Step 1

Step 1. Take a slow approach

Slowly lean into the kiss to create dramatic anticipation. The more excited you and your partner are to start kissing, the more intense it will be when they finally bring your lips together.

  • Start with a few kisses and progress to more intense and longer kisses. In this way, you slowly get into an intimate atmosphere with your partner.
  • Pause between kisses so they look at each other without touching lips. You can place your hands on your partner's shoulders or hips or use them to gently caress the other's face. By looking into his eyes, you can show that he is a unique person and that he makes the moment engaging.

Step 2. Leave the drools to your dog

There's nothing worse than a frilly kiss. Nothing. Besides looking like you have no idea what you're doing, no one wants to have your drool in their face. Well, maybe just a little drool.

  • Avoid opening your mouth too much. Open your mouth too wide and you'll just let a lot of saliva run down the face of the person you're kissing.
  • Swallow from time to time. Don't forget to swallow your excess saliva while kissing; your spit needs to go somewhere, so don't do it in your partner's face.

Step 3. Keep your lips gently pursed

You want your lips to be soft and full; therefore, avoid frowning them. If you press your lips together too tightly, making a “kissing face” protruding, your lips will lose natural volume and will not be delicious for the kiss (Girls: this is the same “kissing face” you make when applying lipstick!).

Step 4. Tilt your head slightly to one side or the other

Most right-handed people will feel good tilting their head to the right. Left-handed people will prefer to tilt their heads to the left. What's important is that you and your partner are leaning in the same direction (i.e., both to the right or both to the left), creating a mirror effect and allowing your lips to meet.

  • Switch smoothly between tilting your head to the right and to the left. You can make your kissing experience more interesting by switching back and forth with each kiss. Change must come at the end of one kiss and the beginning of another.
  • Don't move your head from side to side too often. Doing so can create an agitated rhythm and make kissing uncomfortable.

Step 5. Give a French kiss (French kiss)

Slowly and gently run your tongue over your partner's lower lips, tongue and gums. Start very carefully and slowly increase the pressure and pace as the other person reciprocates the tongue action.

  • Don't stick your entire tongue in the other mouth! You only need to use the front (1/3) of your tongue. Make quick, sweeping movements so that your tongue is constantly moving. Getting your tongue limp in your partner's mouth isn't very sexy.
  • This is where things can get really wet. Don't forget to swallow from time to time, preventing too much saliva from accumulating in your mouth and from spitting it into your partner's mouth. There's a fine line between sexy and frilly. Try not to cross that line.

Step 6. Finish the kiss with romantic looks

From time to time, part your lips to leave a space between you and look into each other's eyes. Taking a break can make the kiss even more intense when you kiss again. Besides, there's no better way to show someone that you're really paying attention to them than with a good, gentle glare.

Step 7. Be creative

Try nibbling/sucking/kissing/doing different tongue combinations to keep the kiss fresh and exciting.

  • Give the "lip-and-suck" movement a chance. Kiss your partner's upper lip while he nibbles and sucks on your lower lip. Then switch positions.
  • Break the kiss with bites and nibbles. A sensual nip on the bottom lip can break the rhythm of the kiss in a positive way. Be careful not to bite your partner's lip too hard, after all, you're not trying to eat his face.
  • Mix kisses with longer, more passionate kisses. Doing this gives you variety and allows you to rest between intense make out sessions.

Method 2 of 4: Using the Whole Body

Improve Your Kissing Step 8

Step 1. Pay attention to your partner's body language

Kissing is not simply paying attention to what your lips and your partner's lips are doing. Your entire body must be involved in making out so that they achieve the most sensual and pleasurable experience possible. The way your partner moves his body while you kiss can tell you a lot about how he's feeling and what he thinks of your performance.

  • Positive signs to look out for: your partner pulling you closer, squeezing you with their hands, kissing and caressing you with a sense of urgency, letting out random smiles or giggles or often sighing. If you notice that your partner reacts particularly positively to certain actions, pay attention. Your partner will appreciate your attention and will definitely recognize that you are working hard to understand what makes you feel good.
  • Negative signs to look out for: your partner pulling away, pushing your shoulder away, not touching you, barely moving his lips, or trying to close his lips as much as possible to force you to stop.

Step 2. Caress your partner's neck, ears and face

A “mini” massage in these regions can be extremely provocative. Run your fingers, lightly and gently, in gentle movements over these regions.

Step 3. Grab the arms, shoulders and back of the person kissing

You can be a little more blunt with these areas. A light squeeze can cause shivers all over your body. If you're feeling particularly unsettled, give the person's ass a squeeze. Keep an eye on bodily reactions.

Improve Your Kissing Step 11

Step 4. Place your hands on your partner's shoulders or around his waist

Move your fingers or your thumb gently up and down to steady your presence.

  • The position will depend a lot on your height. In general, men are taller, and tend to hug a woman around the waist. Women, on the other hand, prefer to rest their hands on the boys' shoulders.
  • That said, location isn't really important. The recognition of each one is what matters.

Step 5. Take your index finger or your thumb and use it to lift your partner's chin as you look into their eyes

So go for the kiss. This quick moment of visual recognition, coupled with a light touch, is pleasurable and enjoyable.

Step 6. Give your hair a little tug

Run your fingers on the back of the person's neck, just above the neck. Those slight tugs really say "I want you."

Method 3 of 4: Avoiding Bad Breath

Improve Your Kissing Step 14

Step 1. Stay hydrated

A dry mouth can cause bad breath and sticky lips. Don't forget to drink enough fluid every day to keep your lips soft and your breath lovely.

Improve Your Kissing Step 15

Step 2. Avoid foods and drinks that cause bad breath

Most importantly, don't take your partner on a date at a restaurant that serves food with ingredients that cause bad breath. Some foods that should be avoided are:

  • Garlic.
  • Onion.
  • Tuna or sardines.
  • Spicy foods.
  • Coffee.
  • Alcoholic beverages.
Improve Your Kissing Step 16

Step 3. Floss and brush your tooth twice a day.

While this tip may be obvious to most, there are people who refuse to accept the basic premises of good hygiene. So don't forget to floss and brush your teeth twice a day to remove any bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria cause bad breath; rinse with mouthwash to further improve freshness.

Improve Your Kissing Step 17

Step 4. Have a candy or chew gum

Especially after eating any food, don't forget to suck on a candy or chew gum before kissing someone. If you decide to chew gum, remember to throw it away before you start kissing; your partner doesn't want to eat your “leftover gum”, not to mention that the gum can make you choke during the kiss.

Method 4 of 4: Preparing your lips

Improve Your Kissing Step 18

Step 1. Apply lip balm several times a day.

Lip moisturizers, especially products containing shea butter or various moisturizing oils, are great for caring for dry lips. Even if you don't usually have problems with dry lips, lip balm can make your lips look even more pleasing.

  • While they may taste good, avoid lip balms with artificial scents, flavors, or colors. These additives can actually make your lips dry.
  • Some brands of natural lip balms are: Nivea, Burt's Bees, Carmex, Chapstick, C.O. Bigelow, Softlips, EOS and Banana Boat (some are found abroad and can be purchased online as well).
  • Before kissing your partner, apply a peppermint lip balm. Mint activates your body's cold receptors, and when you touch your partner, both you and your partner will have a tingling sensation throughout your body.
  • Use lip balm with at least SPF 15 when outdoors to protect your lips from UV rays.
Improve Your Kissing Step 19

Step 2. Use an exfoliant once a week

You can make a lip scrub using sugar (or brown sugar) based and an additional liquid. Olive oil, coconut oil and honey can be used to make the scrub.

  • You can apply a generous layer to your lips by rubbing it across your lips in a circular motion – you can use a toothbrush for extra exfoliation.
  • Be careful not to exfoliate too hard, you just want to remove the dead skin and not leave your skin raw.
Improve Your Kissing Step 20

Step 3. Have a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and oilseeds

Vitamins B and C, and Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely healthy for your skin. Include these essential vitamins in your diet to keep your lips full and soft.


  • Keep your eyes closed while kissing. Open eyes can be scary.
  • Try not to think too much, let it flow.
  • Focus on the moment. Don't let your thoughts run wild while you kiss.
  • Don't put on lipstick before kissing a man. Men generally don't like getting lipstick smudges all over their face.
  • Apply a pleasantly flavored lip balm before kissing.


  • Do not breathe through your mouth while kissing. Choose to breathe through your nose.
  • If you plan on kissing your date, don't choose a spicy or stinky restaurant for a date.
  • Don't open your mouth too wide.
  • Don't bite or grab your partner too tightly while you're kissing. This can be a bucket of cold water and it can hurt!
  • Be careful about using your entire body when kissing someone as things are likely to become more and more erotic. Take all necessary precautions to make your night a pleasant one.
