Keep a Kissing Routine

Often in the beginning of a relationship, the kissing is what sets us on fire for each other. We love to kiss each other, and the kissing often leads to other activities as it rightly should. Once the newness of the relationship wears off and sometimes when other issues creep into the relationship, kissing is one of the first things to go. To heat up your relationship on a regular basis, make sure kissing is part of your regular routine.

Studies show that kissing reduces the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in both sexes and raises the levels of oxytoxin, a hormone normally associated with bonding. Kissing also facilitates the exchange of pheromones between a couple, helping to incite the attraction which first drew them together. Kissing is also attributed to an exchange of testosterone from the male to the female. This slight hormonal surge might be enough to help fuel a woman’s sexual desire. Kissing also has a biologic component. Sharing natural germs with someone you are close to boosts your overall internal defense system.

Deep, passionate kissing mimics the conditions of the genitalia during sex, which is why the act of kissing immediately gets our minds wandering to other things. The lips are highly sensitive in most people as is the tongue. The slow, sensual kiss that gradually builds into a more heated exploration triggers a flood or hormones throughout the body and leaves us wanting more.

If your love life is a little on the slow side and you’ve noted a lack of kissing might be to blame, make it a habit to kiss each other every day. Don’t just peck each other on the lips and then run. Hold each other, touch each other and make sure those kissing last for at least 30 seconds. For best results, make sure you always have great kissing breath, and then get busy kissing!
