7 Kinds of Kisses and What They Mean


The moment you say “I love you,” it is essential to seal and affirm your statement with the most direct form of communication: the kiss.

Kissing someone provokes a series of different reactions and allows us to express many emotions. With just a simple kiss, you may discover what your partner wants to communicate with you, turning that simple act into a means of fulfilling your partner’s desires.

Kisses are subject to a wide variety of circumstances, but certain types of kisses imply different things:
1) Kiss on the cheek: transmits affection, support and complicity, regardless of physical attraction.

2) Kiss on the lips: implies passion, may mean “I love you” or “I want to date you.” If it is carried out very quickly, just barely touching one another’s lips, it may mean simply friendship. This is why the intensity of the kiss is an important factor in interpreting its intention.

3) Kiss on the collarbone: implies intimacy and manifests a certain degree of erotic intention in the giver. It is a very effective seductive gesture.

4) Kiss on the ears: this gesture is charged with passionate sexual intention and power. It may be taken not too seriously, depending on the intensity with which the kiss is given. This kiss is imbued with the energy of play and mischief.
