Kissing is usually the first big step in getting physical with your new girl. But what if your kissing technique is terrible? You’ll never get your princess into bed if you kiss like a frog. Follow our advice on how to be a great kisser, and you’ll soon be a kissing prince.

Before you even think about locking lips with your new date, you need to think about the state of your mouth. Let’s face it, nobody wants to kiss someone with bad breath. To keep your mouth fresh and deliciously kissable, pay careful attention to these points:

  • Regularly brush and floss your teeth
  • Avoid stinky foods such as garlic and onions
  • Use a refreshing mouthwash
  • Ditch the cigarettes
  • Invest in a tongue scraper
  • Dry mouth = danger-zone
  • Steer clear of ketosis

Lips are sensitive

The lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the body. So, be gentle. Pressing really hard on her lips will not increase the sensation but just make her lips go numb instead. If you want to bite her lips, do it very, very gently. Nibble, don’t chew!

Break out the lip balm

When was the last time you heard a girl talk about how sexy she finds dry, chapped lips? Never, right? Girls simply don’t get hot for lizard-lips. So, keeping your lips soft and supple will heat things up in your lip-locking adventures. Use a dab of moisturiser or a handy, portable lip balm to make your lips perfectly kiss-worthy.

Stubble city

Your three-day stubble might look manly, but it will feel rough and hard and yucky against your girl’s skin. Either go for a smooth shave or let it grow a bit longer until it feels like tissue paper instead of sandpaper.

Start slow

Think of kissing as a marathon, not a sprint. Take your time in getting to top speed. You don’t want to start off at the finish line, so start slowly and then gradually work up to a higher level of intensity and passion.

Lips first, then tongue

Lead with the lips, gentlemen. I repeat: lead with the lips. If your tongue is first in line, then you’re doing it wrong. And please, for the love of all things kind and good, keep your tongue confined to the inside of her mouth.

If your tongue is licking her face, you’re doing it wrong. Really wrong. Use your tongue to tease and play with her tongue, but don’t try to shove your whole tongue down her throat. The saying “less is more” holds true when it comes to tongue kissing!


It’s easy to fall into a repetitive rhythm in your kissing, using the same pressure and the same movements of your lips and tongue. And that soon gets really boring. Vary things up a little, and she will stay excited about your kissing.

Find out what she likes

You might think that you’re a great kisser, but what does that matter if your girl doesn’t feel the same way? You need to find out what she likes, but you won’t learn anything if you immediately bombard her with your own preferences.

Let her lead the way, and you’ll soon learn what makes her melt. If her breathing pattern changes, if she starts making moaning noises or if she presses her body harder against you, those are all good signs that you’re on the right path to becoming her kind of great kisser.

Alright boys, there you have some of our best kissing wisdom. So now, with these tips in your back pocket on your next date, that goodbye kiss on her doorstep might just turn into an invitation to “come up for coffee”.
