Kissing School

Currently Reading: Was too busy to read an e-book, but with the various dr appointments for S and D, I took Jude Devereax's Secrets along. I'm up to Ch 10. And S finished Breaking Dawn last night, so now it's my turn! When I finish Ch 3's edits, I'll reward myself with Soul's Stone.

I wasn't sure what I was going to talk about...and then the Early Show caught my attention! A woman has been conducting kissing classes. Some of her students want to be better kissers; other couples want to remember how to reignite the passion in their lives.

According to the anthropologist interviewed, kissing raises three hormones in our bodies:

Testosterone, which sparks lust;

Oxytocine, which sparks romantic love;

Dopamine, which sparks deep feelings of attachment.

I remember hearing in junior high or early high school, that trumpet players were the best kissers. Well, I've kissed two guys who played that instrument, and neither of them are in my top 10 'Best Kissers'.

I've had guys whose idea of kissing was to present their tongue and expect me to do the rest.

I had one guy who preferred to kiss with his mouth closed.

And I had one guy who thought he had to shove his tongue down my throat every time.

But the best kisser (IMHO) is one who knows when to open his mouth and when to keep it closed. He knows just the right pressure to apply when necessary, and when to be gentle and tender. And no slobbering.

What about you? Any bad kissers in your history? Or have you been blessed with only good ones?

Family Update:
-S has strep throat and is on antibiotics.
-D's eye surgery went well; they are doing the other eye next week.
-My asthma's been acting up the past couple of days, but my inhaler and Robitussin DM has kept it under control:) It's nice to be able to breathe without drowning in phlegm!

Gas Update:
Dropped another two cents! $1.96 last night! I like this trend...the temperature goes up, gas prices go down! Until the month of May, at every Hoosier knows, the Indy 500 brings higher gas prices!

Brynn has a hilarious video on her blog today. Go check it out!

Well the worst was an old boyfriend who thought using his tongue as an extension of another body part, was the way to go. No thanks.

Love Jude. Unfortunately her later work isn't as good, I don't feel.

Yep. I've had some bad kissers. One liked to squeeze my head as hard as he could while he rammed his tongue straight down my throat. My lips were completely numb afterwards. HA. Think I was about 15 at the time. We only went out ONE TIME.
