Enjoy the thrills of kissing, but don’t be in a hurry! I As in all matters pertaining to love, don’t hurry the process of kissing. A kiss is too rapturous a thing to be enjoyed for the moment and the moment only. Linger longer on her lips than you have ever lingered before. Forget time. Forget everything but the kiss in which you are in the midst of. Don’t be like that bashful young
lover who, after a sweet, long kiss, drew his lips away from the lips of his charmer.
Immediately, She burst out into tears.
“What’s the matter?” he asked solicitously.
“You don’t love me I” she said between sobs.
“But I do!”
“Then why did you draw your lips away?”
“I couldn’t breathe,” he said naively.
Breathe? Who wants to breathe, who even wants to think of breathing in the middle of an impassioned kiss? Breathe through your nose if you have to breathe. But kiss, keep on kissing, as long as there! Is one minim of breath in you. Kiss, as Byron said we should kiss, with the “long, long kiss of youth and love.”
Recently, in Chicago, there was held a marathon kissing contest to determine Which couple could hold their kiss the longest without being forced to separate. One pair was able to hold their kiss for fifteen hours. Think of that! Fifteen hours. And yet the naive lad stopped kissing because be couldn’t breathe.
THE “SPIRITUAL” KISS
For instance, there can be kisses exchanged merely in intense glances. A sort of “spiritual kiss.” can pass between the adoring eyes of a pair of lovers. The hot blooded Latin races know the power of such kisses. Their fiery temperaments are ever questing for new delights, for variations, for delightful and artful ways of adding to the pleasure of love.
