Put Variety Into your Kisses
As was mentioned before, the true lover is not satisfied with only one or two contacts. He wants nothing to be held from him. It is for that reason that when kissing a girl, after you have given sufficient time to the kissing of her lips, you should vary your kissing by diverting your zeal to other portions of her face.
Robert Herrick who wrote many beautiful love lyrics in his day, has a poem which ideally synthesizes this idea of varied kisses. In it he says:
“It isn’t creature born and bred
Between the lips all cherry-red;
It is an active flame that flies
First to the babies of the eyes;
Then to the cheek, the chin and ear;
It frisks and flies - now here, now there -
‘Tis now far off, and then ‘tis near;
Here and there and everywhere.”
Let us say that you have revelled in a sweet, long kiss. Suddenly, you see your loved one’s eyes close as though in a moment of weariness. Gently detach your lips from her’s and raise them up to her closed eyelids. Drop a kisslet first on one eyelid and then on the other. Feel the rolling orb quiver under your lips. Then when you have done this, run your lips down along the line of her nose, stopping at odd times to purse them into a tiny kiss. When you reach the wrinkle of her nostrils, bury your lips deeply into the curve and kiss little niblets into first one and then the other. If her eyes still are closed, repeat the process.
But return to the lips.
Never forget this important injunction “Return to the lips” for they can never become satiated with love’s ardent kisses. The little kisses that you have deposited on her eyes and her nose serve only to vary the menu of love. They are but spice to the course of love’s banquet which should always be the “lip kiss”.
