How to Kiss: 5 Tips to Master the Perfect Smooch

1. Ask your partner what they want

Listen, nobody has time for bleh make-outs. Good kissers skip to the best parts by taking control and mentioning the things they do like ("So, that tongue move you just did I like that") as well as providing alternatives for the things they don't. Play show and tell by performing the move on your partner and then asking them to do it back to you. Trust me, teaching can be really fun.

2. Pay attention to what your partner does

Your current kissing partner might be trying to show you what they want, so pay attention to their moves. Slow down, take note of the things bae does, and then gently do it back. If they respond with enthusiasm, you'll know you got their message. Remember that the show isn't all about you: you're both in control.

3. Understand the importance of setting

Like your English teacher says, setting = time + place. Is the right spot for a first kiss at your grandma's house or in the middle of an argument? Probably not. Wait until the moment feels perfect, until you can feel the electricity crackling between you to make your move. It'll be waaaay better that way.

4. Keep your breath fresh

Another important tip for how to kiss a guy or girl is as simple as these two words: fresh breath. You don't want to be up close and personal to someone's face space only to find that their mouth smells, you know, not great. If you're anticipating a trip to Makeout Town, avoid any and stank-inducing foods like garlic, onions, processed cheese (like Cheetos), etc. It's basic manners.

5. Start With Your Lips

The first thing that comes to mind when you think about French kissing is probably your tongue, but that shouldn't come into play right away. You should ease into it and follow your partner's cues. Start just by lightly kissing the surface of the lips (either the top lip, the bottom lip, or both).
