9 Ways To Be A Better Kisser

Who doesn't love kissing? It is, by far, the most fun you can have with your mouth that doesn't involve a can of soda and a package of Pop Rocks. That said, there's always something you can learn to improve your technique. According to Ronnie Koenig of TangoMag.com:

But even the sassiest among us sometimes feel insecure when it comes to our tongue tango skills. We asked a very opinionated group of men to tell us what they want to see, feel and taste during a make-out session. What they say may surprise you but one thing's for sure - it will make you a better kisser!

The first tip, and the first of many surprises, is to Let Him Initiate.

Most modern men believe in a woman's right to vote, a woman's right to choose, and a woman's right to take control in the bedroom whenever she damn well feels like it. But surprisingly, when it comes to puckering up, most of our guys preferred to play things more traditionally.

"When it comes to kissing, I think that there's something just right about a man taking the lead," said Kevin, 29.

"A woman can initiate a kiss, just not the first kiss," qualified Dylan, 26.

Tip two is a no-brainer and a worthy reminder: Keep Your Eyes Wide Shut. No one wants a pair of peepers staring them down in the middle of a tense game of tonsil hockey.
