Making out is a great way to express your passion, even if you or your partner is not ready to take things to the bedroom yet. It allows you to practice your moves on each other, as well as get the feel *literally and figuratively* of your partner’s body. It also shows just how much chemistry you have *or may not have* before you do the big deed or whether you should take your relationship to the next level.
How to make your make out session sizzle
So, without further ado, here are 15 tips on how you can make your make-out session memorable.
#1 Prepare your puckers. First things first. If you want a sizzling make-out session that your partner will never forget, don’t forget to prep those puckers. Exfoliate your lips beforehand to keep them supple. While no one wants dry, cracked lips, avoid putting on slick, slippery, slimey, and gooey lip products, as well. And of course—brush your teeth!
#2 Sweeten the deal. Make the make-out session more romantic and sensual by eating some sweets, such as juicy strawberries or chocolates. Not only are they aphrodisiacs, but having the taste of sweets in your mouth when you kiss will send your partner’s senses into overdrive. Better yet, have some sweet wine to tantalize your partner’s senses with the heady taste in your mouth.
#3 Tingle with mint. If sweet is not your cup of tea, then opt for the tingling sensation of mint. Put on a light minty lip balm, or pop some mints beforehand. The menthol, combined with your warm breath, will make you and your partner tingle with sensation.
#4 Make eye contact. Don’t forget to look into your partner’s eyes from time to time before you kiss or even during different intervals throughout your make out session. This deepens your bond and makes things more intimate. This also allows you to have a better idea of some visual cues from your partner as to where this session might *or might not* go.
#5 Ease into it. Start slow—you don’t have to be in a hurry. Initiate with light, closed-mouth kisses on the lips. Shower light, sensual kisses on their cheeks, chin, behind the ears, or on the neck to turn the heat up a notch.
#6 Tease and tickle. You can still play hard-to-get… even while making out. In fact, this will drive your partner even crazier for you. Pull back and look into your partner’s eyes, or tickle them—in a sexy way—by gently gnawing at their lower lips or ears. Tease them with some naughty innuendos or whisper something sexy in their ear to make them want to kiss you even more badly. Just be sure of the right timing and frequency.
#7 Mind the cues. Even when you’re locking lips and it feels like you’re the only people on earth, make it a point to mind your partner’s cues. Even before the make-out session starts, try to mimic their body language to establish a deeper connection. When you finally lock lips, be aware of how they respond to you. The better you are in sync with each other, the better the lip lock and make out session.
#8 Be hands-on. Don’t forget your hands. Keep your hands occupied by caressing their face and neck, running your hands through your partner’s hair, or slowly rubbing their arms. You can also put your hands around their neck, touch their chest, or even caress their midsection. This keeps your senses high, resulting in a much more sensational make-out session.
#9 Give and take. Remember that making out is also a connection, much like a conversation, except this time, it’s your bodies doing the talking. So, respond to your partner’s cues and give your own response. Let your partner know you’re pleased with what they’re doing, and return it with your own moves.
