I found these Kissing Techniques on a magazine website for grrls... I'm finding them insightful and quite valuable...

1. The across-the-room kiss

Share a moment with your significantother in a crowd by sending an across-the-room kiss: Pucker your lipsand make a kissing gesture at him.

Use this kissing technique as a quick“I love you” or as a sign of encouragement.

2. The aggressive kiss

If your significant other leans in fora quick smooch, but you’re in the mood for something more, surprisehim by turning his peck into a long, deep, sensual kiss.

He’ll get your message loud andclear.

3. The biting kiss

Gently nibble your partner’s bottomlip to add some spice to your next kissing session.

Or, after several soft, sensual kisses,give his bottom lip a playful bite.

The sharp contrast of this newsensation will invigorate him.

This kissing technique is a great wayto liven things up.

4. The butterfly kiss

This playfully, innocent gesture isgreat for children, significant others, or just goofing around withfriends.

Bring your faces so close together thatyour eyelashes touch, then bat your eyes at each other.

The lash-on-lash feeling is meant toimitate butterfly wings and symbolize the fluttering sensation inyour heart.

5. The crush kiss

Kissing a crush for the first time canbe one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world.

To send him to the moon, keep this kissinviting by being demure.

Begin with a gentle, close-mouthed kisswith your arms around his neck or waist, then slowly open your mouth.

The key is to leave him wanting more,so don’t use your tongue.

Pull away before your lingering kissturns into a make-out session, but keep your arms around him for afew moments longer. You’ll both be seeing stars!

6. The curious kiss

Whether you’ve been friends withsomeone for years or you’re saying goodnight to a great seconddate, sometimes you just want to see if the sparks are there.

A kiss is a great way to test yourchemistry, provided you use the right technique.

This type of kiss falls somewherebetween the crush kiss (No. 5) and the friendly kiss (No. 12).

Start with a closed-mouth kiss, thenbarely part your lips to add a hint of passion.

Make sure to include some sort of bodycontact as well – hold his hand, touch his waist or cup his jaw.

The duration of this kiss is veryimportant.

Pull away too soon, and he’ll thinkyou aren’t interested; linger too long, and he’ll think you are.Keep the kiss between five and 10 seconds.

If it leaves you wanting more, stayawhile. If the sparks just aren’t there, say goodnight.

7. The earlobe kiss

To really steam up your next kissingsession, slowly move your lips over to your partner’s ear. Gentlynibble or suck on his earlobe (be careful not to bite!).

Breathe through your nose and exhalesoftly into his ear.

The waft of warm air will make hiswhole body tingle.

Just don’t linger too long in thisarea; a little ear action can go a long way!

8. The Eskimo kiss

Like the butterfly kiss, this is alight-hearted “kissing” technique that children, friends orsignificant others can enjoy.

This kiss substitutes noses for lips.

Bring your faces close and gently rubyour noses together.

This silly kiss is sure to brightenanyone’s day.

9. The European kiss

In Europe, it is common for people tosay hello or goodbye with a kiss on one or both cheeks.

This trend is catching on in socialsettings in the United States, as well.

With the European kiss, your lipsbarely touch the person’s skin or kiss the air right next to theperson’s cheek.

It is more of a formality than a realkiss.

10. The exploratory kiss

When you enter into a new relationship,chances are you’ll be kissing plenty.

During this stage, you and your partnerare like explorers – discovering each others’ techniques, findingout what you each like and dislike. Now is the time to experiment.

Switch up your style with quick pecks,lingering, open-mouth kisses, and playful Eskimo and butterflykisses.

Run your hands through your partner’shair, trace your fingers up and down his back, or tease him withtickles.

Try a little tongue play, but don’tfeel pressured to dive into full-fledged French kissing.

The point is to have fun and try newthings.

Enjoy the excitement of venturing intouncharted territory.

11. The French kiss

Perhaps the most famous of all kisses(and the one most often poorly executed), the French kiss is allabout the tongue action.

Approach this kissing technique likeyou would a potential mine field: one step at a time.

The trick is to go slowly.

Use your tongue to gently explore yourpartner’s mouth.

Breathe through your nose, and feelfree to take breaks.

12. The friendly kiss

For some people, kissing a friend onthe lips or cheek is a natural way to show affection.

Just keep it short and sweet, andalways close-mouthed.

You don’t want to send mixed signals.

13. The gallant kiss

Traditionally, a man kisses a woman’shand to show respect and admiration for a lady.

14. The icy kiss

Play with kissing your partner byputting a piece of ice in your mouth, kissing him, and passing theice to him with your tongue.

Or try the same thing with a powerfulbreath mint.

This cold variation of the French kisscan really heat up your night.

15. The motherly kiss

The motherly kiss involves kissing aperson’s forehead to show friendship, affection or comfort.

16. The obligatory kiss

Picture this: You’re in the middle ofa crowded party and who do you see coming your way?

The guy who left you 20 voicemailsafter one chemistry-less date.

He says hello and leans in, lipspuckered.

Rather than running away screaming,help him save face by offering him yours.

Turn your face to the side and let himkiss your cheek.

If his lips begin to wander, turn yourhead again and offer the other cheek as well.

Then smile politely, say somethingnice, and walk away.

Remember, you are never required tokiss someone on the lips.

By allowing a quick peck on the cheek,you keep the mood friendly while sending a clear signal that you arenot interested.

17. The sensual kiss

The neck is full of delicate nerveendings, and kisses on the neck are sure to send a tingling sensationthrough your partner’s entire body.

When things are getting hot and heavy,move your kisses to your partner’s neck.

Gently suck or nibble on one area, orcover the entire neck with kisses.

This kiss will make him beg for more.

18. The thank-you kiss

To show appreciation or affection,offer someone a friendly kiss on the cheek.

This type of kiss is also commonly usedat the end of a first date.

It’s a nice form of body contact, butit’s also non-committal.

Charming! Wonder how you might fit in a kind of tentative kiss... the kind where you sort of want to, aren't too sure, back and forth, hesitation, maybe take a chance very very lightly, then feel like you might have done something totally dumb and back away ... or just kind of let it hang there and vanish wearing a smile.

I'm particularly fond of the ice kiss :) Done that, hope to do it again :) Writing the sensations involved requires a bit of imagination, however...
