Let’s Talk About French Kissing

What is it? And how do you do it?

Kissing, it’s a topic that not everybody feels comfortable discussing, and something that definitely not everybody feels comfortable doing – and that’s perfectly normal. 

Chances are, you’ve seen people talk about and engage in ‘french kissing’ in films and tv shows. Maybe you’ve overheard your friends talking about it, or maybe the crush you’re texting has thrown it into conversation – but what exactly is french kissing? And more importantly, how do you do it?

If you’re too embarrassed to ask the above questions, don’t worry, that’s what KISS is here for. 

What is French Kissing?

French kissing is basically an intense form of kissing, it involves using your tongue to either touch the other person’s tongue or lips. 

It’s different from a peck or just normal kissing, as they involve simply touching your lips together with your mouth closed. 

As we all know, kissing is generally an act of passion and romance, and things don’t really get much more passionate than french kissing. Because frenching stimulates the mouth, tongue, and lips, which are all sensitive areas this specific kind of kissing is the most intimate you can get. 

How do you French Kiss?

Many studies have shown that kissing can benefit both your mental and physical health. Triggering your brain to release lots of ‘happy hormones’, relieving stress and reducing anxiety. 

So, if you have someone that you feel safe and comfortable kissing or indeed – french kissing, here’s how you can do it!

First, go in for a kiss as you normally would. You know what to do – close your eyes, tilt your head in the opposite direction of the other person and part your lips slightly. Begin the frenching by slowly kissing one another for a few seconds. 

Then, when you’re ready slowly and gently introduce the tongue. The keyword here is gentle, you don’t want to rush or force anything. Don’t jab your tongue around, make soft and slow movements in circular and wiggle motions. Don’t forget to carry on breathing through your nose!

Once you do it a few times you’ll get the swing of things and what you and your kissing partner likes, maybe you like to tease your tongue a little before going all in, or maybe you like to trace your tongue across their lips – the possibilities are endless and it’s all about finding a method that works for you and your partner! 

But remember, if you don’t feel comfortable with french kissing, even if just kissing, that’s perfectly okay too. Everyone has different comfort zones and it’s important that those around you respect that.
