Here, in no particular order, are some of my favorite smooches.
–I like the smooch where there’s no question it’s going to happen. The smoocher is standing full on in front of the smoochee with that smooching grin on his/her face. Bot smoocher and smoochee lean in at the same time and soft lips brush soft lips. And brush again. And linger just long enough that a soft tongue slips from one mouth to the next and is met by the other.
–I like the smooch where the smoochee is being a little ridiculous about something that makes the smoochee both exasperating and irrestistable and the smoocher grabs the smoochie’s shoulders, backs him or her up against a wall, and presses him or herself full up against the smoochee, maybe with a hand on the back of the smoochee’s head, and the smoocher kisses the smoochee like that should end the discussion.
–I like the smooches where, afterwards, you stare at youself in the bathroom with that dopey grin on your face, your hair all messed up, and your mouth all red from whisker burn.
–I like the smooch you don’t expect, where you’re just sitting there talking and the smoocher leans over and plants one on you.
Can you tell what a person is like in bed from how they smooch?
You can tell if someone is a good lover or not by how they kiss. . . . Kissing is an art form . . . if it comes from the heart, you can express yourself and understand exactly what a lover wants in bed. . . . It’s all about passion and being able to read a kiss.
I don’t know. I think I’m a pretty good kisser. I’m less sure of the rest of my repertoire.
But I found that whole Village Voice article interesting. I do find kissing to be very intimate and have a hard time with the whole “Hello!” *kiss, kiss* phenomenon. I wouldn’t run up to Dr. J after not seeing her for months and grab her tit. In the same way, I wouldn’t run up to her and kiss her, not even on the cheek. And I don’t mind smooching her!
Anyway, I’m tired of talking about depressing things. Let’s talk about smooching. What makes a good smooch? Who do you like to smooch? Is there anyone you would stand around smooching for three hours, onlookers be damned? (I mean, of course, aside from me.)
