First kisses

First kisses are always memorable. The rush, the anticipation, the fear all packed in before you go in for the kill. It can be a slow kiss, tongues exploring each other in a slow build up that leads to a breathless finish or a fast, passion fueled kiss with little technique involved. Th rush and the tumble is all part of it.I have kissed a lot of boys and some girls. I, however have 5 that stand out in my mind for specific reasons. ...more

Kissing and Telling

I was only three when I first told a boy that he didn’t know how to kiss… and that I was going to fix that. So, when I talk to you about kissing, please know that this comes from decades of long, hard experience. My first real kiss though was pretty perfect. I was in middle school and in a truth or dare game, I was dared to kiss my boyfriend for a full five minutes....more

Conquer the Heart with the Surrender of One Kiss

An anonymous writer once said that “a kiss is something you cannot give without taking and cannot take without giving,” but I also believe that a first kiss can make or break a would-be relationship. And a picture does indeed say a thousand unspoken words; some of the best [now-famous] kisses in the last century have been captured on camera and on canvas:...more

How Was Your First Kiss? TLC’s Virgin Diaries Well, I’m speechless; not because TLC has managed to produce another wedding show that exploits extreme lifestyles and not because finding an unmarried virgin is like discovering the mythical unicorn. I am speechless at the sheer awkwardness of what they’ve captured for their premiere episode set to air this Sunday. Watch the below to know what I’m talking about:...more

The Royal Wedding Kiss

We're disappointed with the lackluster peck exchanged by Kate and William at their wedding. We wanted passion, we wanted the Hollywood thing. If you think about it, in a sense, we're telling the couple that this -- their wedding -- isn't about them, that it's about us. We're a long way from Ancient Rome, but the roar of the Colosseum has returned in the form of global technology. ...more

The kiss thing really threw me for a loop. Wasn't it obvious in the fact the Kate was positively ...more

Black Lungs

I’m dying.  The doctor said it, standing there in the hall with my x-ray films, so it must be true.  Now the kids crouch beside me and talk loud, as if I’m deaf.  Coddle me.  Bring me cases of Ensure.  Their whispers are like buzzing flies when they think I’m asleep. The grandkids beg me to give up cigarettes.  “So you’ll live longer, Gramps,” they say.  “We want you with us forever.” They don’t know what it’s like to only have one comfort left in the world.  Well, maybe two.  My easy chair in front of the big screen tv conso...more

French Kiss

Back then, I hadn’t mastered the art of finding a flaw.  Hadn’t even thought of it yet.  Of protecting myself from little crushes with a prayer.  Show me, God.  Reveal something undesirable about this guy—halitosis, a lousy work ethic, a collection of Skipper dolls—that’ll make this constant thought of ‘what if’ go away.                                        &nb...more

Patron Saint of Lovers: History of St. Valentine’s Day

Kisses I'm a romantic at heart. I love cheesy romantic comedies. I'm a sucker for a sweet love story. Jane Eyre is my all-time favorite book for Pete's sake....more

Kissing and Health - A toast to that!

I just read the sweetest thing on that I also thought was quite interesting, whether you are a teen or a more “mature” type of girl like me.   The article I read is about kissing.    It talks about the health aspects of kissing, including how many calories a minute you can burn when participating in osculation (another term for kissing), which is 26!   I figure, if I can kiss the love of my life for 10 minutes, I can eat an oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookie after, without guilt.  However, after kissing for 10 minutes, I may not want t...more
