Although, it has evolved to be also used for dignitaries and formal gatherings. When used in such cases, it signifies respect and loyalty.

This kiss is sometimes referred to the king of all kisses. If you want to know if your man or woman is a good kisser, then this is the perfect kiss.


This kiss involves plenty of tongue action and mastery. It comes from intense passion and romance and creates pleasure and desire for both parties.

You can spice up your French kiss by caressing the cheeks of your partner with your thumb, softly trailing your fingertips along their jawline, and moving your fingers through their hair.

This kiss involves you sucking the lips of the other lightly. It is also known as a seductive kiss, as it gets both partners ready for making love. This kiss signifies that you are really into the other person.

6. Neck kiss

This kiss is strictly for lovers and is seen as foreplay before lovemaking. There is nothing more stimulating than a touch of wet lips on soft skin. Allow your imagination to run wild; you will get the gist.

7. Nibble kiss

This kiss is also for lovers. It involves nibbling softly (subtle bites) on the lips of your lover or their ear lobes. This kiss can end a French kiss, or used alongside the single lip kiss.

Trust me, you don’t want to nibble too hard, or you spoil the mood as this can result in a little pain. Other than that, there is nothing wrong with adding a little danger to your kisses.
