So girls, how you kiss a guy for the first time can make or break your relationship. So pay attention to this…
Psychologists report that most people can remember up to 90 percent of the details of their first romantic kiss, a memory that is even more powerful that their first sexual encounter.
“Think about all those date-movies where that long-awaited first kiss brings sighs and heart flutters to the audience and seals the deal between the couples on the screen,” said Sarasota, Fla., psychologist LeslieBeth Wish.
“The lips are very sensitive tissue, with many nerve endings that signal reactions such as hot and cold, sharp and soft,” she said. “These same nerve endings also activate our feelings of closeness and attachment by arousing the brain’s love chemicals such as oxytocin.”
An estimated 59 percent of men and 66 percent of women end a relationship because of a bad first kiss, according to Sheril Kirshenbaum, author of “The Science of Kissing: What Our Lips Are Telling Us.”
“So much information is exchanged with a kiss,” she said. “One kiss and everything can be completely off. It’s the ultimate litmus test.”
Research for her recent book revealed that, as a rule, “men prefer open-mouth kissing, and women complain about too much tongue,” said Kirshenbaum.
A Virginia psychologist who is on the faculty of the Human Sexuality Institute in Washington, D.C., said the kiss is essential to relationships — “the touch of the lips is rare, like a fingerprint.”
“In romance, the kiss takes us toward emotional intimacy,” he said. “We face our beloved, look into their eyes, or close the eyes as we reach deeper into the soul of the experience, crossing the line between our separate selves and our deepest longings to be part of something more.”
