Itís fun to think about and even more fun to practice, but kissing has a long history of scandal and romance. Just think about how many kisses there are and how scandalous it once was to show a bare ankle or knee, much less lock lips in public. Today most kissing hardly warrants a second glance, unless youíre trying to remove your boyfriendís tonsils on a park bench or by his locker, but kissing is much more than a covert activity reserved for dark movie theatres. Itís culture!

Air Kisses

The least romantic kind of kiss is the air kiss. When you air kiss, you simply make that ďmmm-wahĒ sound right next to a friendís cheek, usually on both sides, and say something breezy like, ďItís been fabulous darling, but I simply have to run! Mmm-wah!Ē Air kissing happens quite a bit in some cultures where itís tradition and others where women simply donít want to mess their lipstick up.

Cheek Kissing

A favorite of stinky aunts everywhere, kissing on the cheeks is a respected greeting between relatives and friends around the globe. In many countries, it would be considered rude not to greet an aunt or cousin with a kiss on both cheeks. Be sure that your cheek kiss is a quick peck and there is no slobber involved. To slobber on anotherís cheek is not in good form in any country Ė unless youíre a baby giving those funny open mouth kisses.

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly kisses are so great there is even a weepy country song about them. To give someone butterfly kisses, both parties close their eyes and you bat your eyelashes quickly against the other personís cheek. These are very innocent and fun. They are a favorite of children and parents at bedtime, especially if sappy songs are to be believed.

Eskimo Kisses

The name might not be politically correct any more, but everyone must know how to give an Eskimo kiss. Eskimo kisses are adorable ways to greet nieces and nephews or just to be coy with your boyfriend. To give an Eskimo kiss, you gently run the tip of your nose against the tip of someone elseís. This is a good time to not be wearing heavy concealer on the zit on the tip of your nose, however.

Simple Kisses

A simple kiss is considered chaste and in good form. In school circles itís commonly called a ďclosed mouth kiss.Ē A fast peck on the lips can be appropriate for your mom before bedtime or for your boyfriend between classes Ė especially if PDA (public display of affection) is outlawed on campus. Simple kisses can run a bit longer than a peck and when this happens they are often considered terribly romantic because this is the style of most wedding kisses and first kisses. And what is more romantic than that?

French Kissing

Anything that involves opening your mouth and using your tongue is a French kiss. Like French fries, Iím going to wager that most of the French kissing you see in (and at) movies as well as in the hallways before school was invented in America. While there are schools of thought on this that vary from mine, anything that even resembles tongue or spit swapping is your business. Please donít make it mine (or anyone elseís for that matter.)

Hmm. Kissing. Good article.

I am not an expert on kissing or boyfriends, but both are romantic to me.

But then again, I'm not exactly a big person on affection. It took me a long time to be comfortable with just hugging my own relatives.

So, yeah. I'm not even thirteen yet (less than a month!) and kids I go to school with are obsessed with being in relationships and kissing in the hallway. My friend and neighbor is always kissing his girlfriend. I love him to death, but it's a little disgusting to see.

I guess people in my school are also surprised, as they were today, when I said I'd never had a boyfriend. It's crazy.

Great article, again.

I've never been kissed. Nor had a boyfriend. I tend to keep my crushes to myself as SOMEPEOPLE - glares at BFFL Katie - tease me. I mean I like to really annoy this dumb boy at school - all my friends do - and today he was trying to ignore me but I hugged him and he look petrified. And now Katie is teasing me sooooo badly. She says that I fancy him. Like, as if darling. Anyway, she's the one who had a crush on him.

Aww that's so cute about your parents! You may think it's wierd now, but when you get older you'll look back and know your parents truly loved one another! (I wish I'd seen my parents and in-laws kissing more often)

I just got my first real romantic kiss from my boyfriend over the weekend. But everytime my parents are alone they are always kissing. I walk in on them all the time and they don't notice me at all.

Nice article.

nice to know--but don't do any sorts of kissing if you aren't ready, or don't really like the person. Do you want to remember your first kiss being the gross kid you said yes to just so you wouldn't hurt their feelings. it's way more hurtful if you don't mean it.

Something tells me it's not healthy to "raise the bar" just because everyone else is doing it. Nor do I think it's a good idea to just get a boyfriend to "raise the bar"... just my opinion though.
