Kissing In A Dream Isn’t Always What You Think

We humans show our affection and love for one another, and our passion through a kiss. A kiss can soothe, calm and even magically heal -a child will feel all better after their boo-boo is kissed. In many cultures, but especially in Western cultures, a kiss is often the most intimate physical expression, sometimes considered more intimate even than sexual intercourse. It’s pretty much common knowledge that prostitutes rarely kiss their clients on the mouth. This is because the kiss is recognized as a show of love and tenderness, and the services provided by a working girl (or guy) is little more than a business transaction.

In Christian societies, a kiss may also be an act of betrayal, such as the betrayal of Christ by the kiss of Judas. A kiss may also mark the beginning of the end of something, an action that marks the person or project’s demise as in ‘the kiss of death.’ It also represents a goodbye, both temporary and permanent.

In fairy tales, kisses take on a much more complex, archetypal meaning. Snow White and Sleeping Beauty were both revived by a kiss. A frog is magically transformed through the power of a kiss. In the fairy tale world the kiss is associated with rebirth; of either the physical, psychological or spiritual.

In dreams, kisses may be of the tender, loving, healing kind, the impassioned intimate kind or the complex archetypal kind. They may be symbols of transformation, rebirth, or the rekindling or ending of a relationship or project-a ‘breath of new life’ or ‘the kiss of death’ delivered via the lips.

In dreams, a kiss isn’t just a kiss. It has to be understood in context. Is the kiss a simple peck on the cheek from a relative? This type of kiss could signify a need for, or actual, approval from people in authority or parental figures. If you’re shying away from or avoiding the kiss it might mean that you’re feeling smothered by those in authority or you may feel that you’re being made to feel childish. Are you kissing a child, an animal, an inanimate object? Perhaps this is a suggestion that some healing needs to take place, or that you need to welcome this new aspect, situation or character into your life.

Kissing someone with whom you’re involved can indicate either a desire for closeness if it’s missing, or may be an expression of deep affection for that person even on a subconscious level.

Dreams of kissing someone of the same sex, if you’re heterosexual, can indicate a need for self-love or may indicate approval of self. And again, may be suggestive of deep affection, plain and simple.

If you’re kissing someone you’re not attracted to, or if the kiss is unwanted or makes you feel uncomfortable, the dream may indicate feelings of betrayal as forced kissing is a violation; of intimacy, of choice, of boundaries and of your body. These are the kisses that indicate you’re feeling overwhelmed or over-pressured by someone or something in your life. Look at who is involved in the kiss to provide a clue to who or what the situation is. But, this type of kiss may also be a clue to feeling victimized or bullied/forced into actions or activities you are against.

The long, hungry desired kiss may represent, in your dream, a longing for something. The longing may be for love and intimacy, but it can also express longing for something missing in other areas of your life. For example, if you dream of kissing an actor this may be a play on words. It can mean you’re longing for the ability to take action in some area of your life.

If a kiss is given to an animal, this may suggest a longing to return to or recover your true, uninhibited and unstifled nature. These are just some possible meanings. As always, the context, words and characters must be taken into consideration.

Other Possible Meanings:

Kissing someone you like and want may simply be wish fulfillment.

Kissing a faceless person can be demonstrating that your basic desire/s is being met.

Kissing someone you know casually and not romantically may represent recognition of harmonious vibrations.

Kissing a celebrity may be suggesting that you need to, or are trying to boost your self-worth.

Kisses with adulterous passionate overtones may mean that it’s time to spice up the romance.

Kissing is the start of passion for just about any age group. Whether it’s young lovers stealing a kiss at the front door, or a mature married couple kissing tenderly on their 25th anniversary, a kiss is usually about love, passion and tenderness.

A kiss from a lover, under happy circumstances, presages happiness and contentment.

A kiss from a stranger implies an unexpected gift.

A kiss can represent affection, joy, coming success, or a wish to be close to someone.

An unwanted kiss may indicate upcoming overtures from someone you don’t especially like or care for.

If you’re kissing a close friend, then the suggestion may simply be a reminder of your respect and feelings for your friend. On the other hand, it may be implying that you’re seeking some intimate closeness that is lacking in some waking relationship. It may or may not signify a romantic interest for him or her.

To dream that you’re kissing someone’s hand, signifies respect.

To see others kissing in your dream suggests that you are too involved in their personal lives and relationship. You need to give them some space.

In general, kissing is a token of affection and suggests warmth, happiness, appreciation, passion, tenderness and connection. However, there is always the negative connotations to consider. A kiss may be a last kiss, a kiss off, the kiss of death, a kiss goodbye, an unwanted advance or a means of spreading a contagion.

To determine what the kiss represents in a particular dream make note of who is involved in the kiss, where the kiss is taking place, how you (the dreamer) react to the kiss and the character, and what other elements are included in the dream. Also, make note of if the dream is primarily positive or negative.

By answering these questions, you should be able to determine what your kissing dream is trying to tell you.

How to Gently Kiss a Woman

My last post was about the right time to kiss a woman. Now, we will deal on how to do it. You may have kissed a thousand times but how was it? Did she tell you that you are a good kisser? Are one of those guys who cannot have another date after kissing a girl? A not so drop dead gorgeous person is very attractive because who or she is a good kisser. Or some people looks very attractive but when they get physical starting with a kiss; they are such a bore or worse, a nightmare.

Well, a kiss is very important in relationships and very pleasurable. This article will tackle on how to be a good kisser and avoid being a lousy kisser. So, how do most women liked to be kissed?

There are only two ways to kiss a woman the right way that can surely sweep her off her feet – slowly and gently and touching her face.

Gentleness

Kiss any woman gently especially if it is your first. Those scenes in movies where a man and a woman attack each other with their kisses rarely happen in the real world. You may ask yourself? How gently? The key is to just do it slowly, refrain from introducing your lizard tongue to a woman’s mouth and nature will just guide you. Feel the moment and savor a woman’s lips. If the kiss tends to be intense, then suck and pull her lips gently. If she respond to this by pulling your lips to or any soft moans then you are way to go. Safe those torrid kissing in the future.

Touching a woman

Most men focus on lip locking or exchanging saliva that they forget the other spice in kissing – touching her face. Any woman will fall to their knees if you slowly caress her face or hair while kissing. But of all, any woman will feel so good if you cup her face with your hands while kissing. Such action will make a woman feel that you want her so much and she feels like she is the leading lady in a romantic movie. Try doing this with a gentle kiss and you will see her eyes lit up after the kiss.

Of course, there are some specific styles that women like but those two ways are most essential ways of kissing any woman right. Generally, women like soft kisses; it is a sign that you will take care of her. Women are more vulnerable than men, so they want you to be gentle with them even through kissing. Most importantly, avoid the following kissing mistakes:

– “Lizard-King” style. You put your whole tongue to a woman’s mouth that she can taste what you had for dinner. She wants to feel your lips not your tongue! If both of you can’t help but include some tongue especially if the girl is opening her mouth wide, take it easy. Do the tongue thing a little bit and go back to plainly kissing her lips.
– Pressing your face harshly to her. Remember, you have to be gentle in kissing her. She will condemn you for life if she will get rashes from your beard or mustache.
– Your hands are too busy. It is disrespectful to touch a woman’s body if you are still on the early stages of any relationship. Touching her face is romantic or softly holding her neck is very passionate but if your hands wander below that then, it is a big turn off.

With all those kissing tips I mentioned above, take it easy and give your date the best kiss of her life!

KISS is Still Alive After Four Decades of Rock and Roll

KISS became a household name throughout the decade of the seventies. Rock music could never be the same. When the new fab four emerged onto the music scene, they made and unforgettable impression. Four men from New York dressed in leather outfits, high heeled boots, and identity concealing makeup would captivate the world and change the entertainment industry forever. Whether you love them or hate them, everybody knows KISS. The outfits, the makeup, and overall appearance of the band has made them one of the most recognizable bands in the world. Back in the early 1970’s, their stage theatrics amazed and confused (in some cases) concert-goers around the world. With roots in New York City, and all four members residing in the vicinity, they put together a local following initially, and after a few years of album releases and constant touring, proceeded to go national and by the mid seventies eventually rise to international recognition. During the 1970’s, KISS would tour endlessly, appear on TV shows, and promote their new sound and look any way they could. That’s where things got interesting. KISS merchandise began to appear not only at the rock concerts, but at your local toy store, record store, gift shop, etc. KISS, with the help of Aucoin management, began producing and promoting everything KISS. There were dolls, notebooks, posters, keychains, transistor radios, board games, and much more. Although KISS wasn’t the first band to produce themed merchandise, they were the first to do it successfully and at a level never seen before. Many of these products would eventually be re-classified as KISS collectibles a few decades later. These KISS products would eventually help them to earn the “hottest band in the world” badge. Their arsenal of albums, eyecatching appearance, KISS themed merchandise, and fiery stageshow would put this band in a class all by itself. This level of fame unfortunately caused turmoil among band members, substance abuse entered the picture as well, and the band began to self destruct. Peter Criss, the band’s drummer was the first to part ways with the group. He was immediately replaced and the band played on.

As the 1980’s arrived, many changes were taking place within the band including the departure of Ace Frehley the spaceman, a fan favorite and original guitarist. His replacement lasted just a few years and then was replaced as well. Overall KISS had a total of four lead guitar players during the 1980’s. The biggest change however was the removal of the makeup and the beginning of a new era for KISS with a toned-down stage show and performances in street clothes (more or less). The band would release a total of ten albums throughout the decade and would sell more concert tickets than even they expected. The band’s new appearance and evolving rock sound kept fans coming back for more.

The 1990’s were eventful in terms of KISS. Their drummer, Eric Carr passed away from cancer in 1991. Eric became a fan favorite performing with KISS longer than their original drummer Peter Criss. KISS eventually moved forward with a new drummer and a new album, but there was more to come in the 90’s and it came in the form of something totally unexpected… the KISS convention. Fans around the world were beginning to gather to commemorate KISS in their makeup days. Tribute bands, KISS memorabilia and collectibles, as well as plenty of die hard fans would pack various venues to celebrate the KISS they remember from the 1970’s. These KISS conventions were never sanctioned by KISS but were truly a sight to see. Were the original band members watching? We’ll never know but we can imagine they were. The next event worth mentioning took place in 1995 when all four original members took the stage for an unplugged show, an MTV production. An idea that some fans rumored was brought on by the successful conventions and the growing number of KISS collectibles. This show would eventually trigger a reunion tour complete with makeup and stageshow as only KISS could do it. The fans went wild for KISS. They sold out shows around the globe and made guest appearances anywhere they could. The kings of promotion were back in the limelight just like days of old. The merchandising reincarnated into something fans had never seen before. Dolls and keychains gave way to lava lamps, bottled wine, video games, and even a KISS casket. KISS was big business again and with the fame and fortune came the same old problems again.

By 2000 it appeared Peter Criss and Ace Frehley were both beginning to tire of the KISS experience both with rumored problems. Original members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley showed no sign of slowing down. Touring continued and the band eventually settled down with drummer Eric Singer, who had already been performing with the band after replacing Eric Carr, and guitar tech Tommy Thayer. Although the touring has not been nearly as intense in recent years, as of 2009 the band is still performing, still wearing makeup, and still selling concert tickets and of course, KISS collectibles.
