5 Tips to Kiss Like a Pro
Tip 1: Less is More
Most times, less is more. Don't go all in the very first time your lips meet your partner's. Play around; tease a bit. It's true that people always want what they can't have, so make them work for it. Start with a soft gentle kiss barely touching your partners lips and ease away. Repeat this technique progressively getting more passionate until you are in full swing.
Tip 2: Prep is Key
If you have any sign that you might be kissing someone soon, prep! Make sure you don't have too much makeup around your mouth, your breath is fresh, and there is nothing in your teeth. If you have longer hair, tie it up or to the side so it doesn't get in the way or in your mouth.
Tip 3: Necking
Because the neck has way less nerve endings than your lips, it is harder to feel details or sensations. When kissing a neck you need to be more aggressive. Try sucking when releasing from a kiss. Not enough to make weird noises, just enough to add some pressure. When transitioning from lips to neck kiss along the partners cheek up to their ear lobe, and progress kissing slowly and firmly down their neck. To transition back to lips repeat these steps in the opposite direction.
Tip 4: Try Something New
Maybe you want to spice things up a little bit. Try sucking on your partner's ear lobe gently or biting their lip. With biting, please don't bite too hard. It's just painful and there isn't much your partner can do about it. When trying to judge how hard to bite, practice biting your bottom lip to find optimal pressure.
Tip 5: Practice
You don't always need a partner for this. The best way to practice is actually on your fingers or on an iced cupcake. If you practice on your fingers, you can feel approximately how your lips feel to your partner. It's also good for practicing transitions of moving your head/lips different ways, how much pressure to apply, how much biting, tongue, etc.
When kissing, don't forget to listen to your partner and what they like/dislike. Mimic what they are doing so as to stayed smooth and unified in your kisses. Remember kissing is a team sport so make sure you are providing for the other players as well as yourself.
