A Kiss to Remember Dr. Read rekindles the magic of your first kiss with your spouse. BY DR. TRINA READ
Rekindling the spark of that first kiss isn't as hard as it may seem.
During a lifetime, the average human will have sex more than 3,000 times and spend a total of two solid weeks kissing. That’s a whole lot of kissing. Yet, the first kiss we share with that someone special or the one on your wedding day is usually the most memorable kiss—ever!
Kissing someone for the first time is not merely the meeting-up of two sets of lips. Oh no, no, no, sir. It is a highly anticipated, electric-charged fusion where thousands of nerve endings on the lips finally get together with another set of eagerly waiting lips. It is a rare, magical, time-stopping moment.
Our First Kiss Was a Long Time Ago
If you are reading and retching, I would like to point out that I am a girl and live for this kind of emotional fodder. Apparently I am not alone. For hundreds of years, women have read page after page of romance novels just to reach the one pinnacle paragraph where the heroine and hero kiss for the first time. At the climax of every old movie, when the two love-struck characters finally lock in a passionate embrace, I guarantee every gal watching will have exhaled a longing sigh.
Though all of this first kiss stuff is fine and dandy, what happens when you and your spouse have been together for a while and the magic of your first kiss is history? The perfect kiss is a wonderful and memorable present you can give to your special someone.
Creating Another Memorable Kiss
So what’s next? First a little preparation is needed to create the romantic scene. Catch your partner in an unexpected secluded spot wherever you might be at the time—this works especially well when you are at a party.
Second, remember to do a breath check prior—nothing like going in for a memorable kiss with breath that can melt paint.
And finally, remember that the key to any good kiss is not rushing but savoring the moment.
Now, as you look into their eyes, slowly bring your head to theirs and tenderly rub the tip of your nose along the sides and bridge of their nose. Then, with your lips just inches from theirs (so you can feel the hot breath on each other’s face), give them a gentle kiss. No tonguing, no extended kiss. Simply a soft… lingering… kiss. The best way to end the embrace is to place a second light kiss on or around their neck area. Pure magic.
It will become a snapshot in time that both of you will remember in the following months and years. Just like your first kiss.
