The moment you say “I love you,” it is essential to seal and affirm your statement with the most direct form of communication: the kiss. What can be said about a kiss that millions of poets, artists, and musicians have not already expressed? In actuality, kissing has its own language.

Kissing someone provokes a series of different reactions and allows us to express many emotions. With just a simple kiss, you may discover what your partner wants to communicate with you, turning that simple act into a means of fulfilling your partner’s desires.

Kisses are subject to a wide variety of circumstances, but certain types of kisses imply different things:

Kiss on the cheek: transmits affection, support and complicity, regardless of physical attraction.

Kiss on the lips: implies passion, may mean “I love you” or “I want to date you.” If it is carried out very quickly, just barely touching one another’s lips, it may mean simply friendship. This is why the intensity of the kiss is an important factor in interpreting its intention.

Kiss on the collarbone: implies intimacy and manifests a certain degree of erotic intention in the giver. It is a very effective seductive gesture.

Kiss on the ears: this gesture is charged with passionate sexual intention and power. It may be taken not too seriously, depending on the intensity with which the kiss is given. This kiss is imbued with the energy of play and mischief.

Kiss on the hands: either in women or men implies admiration, tenderness, or desire for love. Additionally, it expresses trust on the part of the giver.

Kiss accompanied by an embrace: when both bodies are in close contact, this is an expression of strong affection and surrender. Both are willing to give in to one another on both a sensual and a sexual level.

Kiss accompanied by an intense look of endearment: the person receiving the kiss feels tenderly loved, whether the kiss is on the face or the lips.
