Kissing, sucking face, tonsil hockey, necking, smooching, making out… No matter how you reference it, kissing is a beautiful and sensual act. I love kissing. When I was younger, I'd jump at the opportunity to suck face with a hot guy. I liked the vulnerability I felt. I loved seeing the other party squirm and long for more. I used to use kissing as a way to entice the recipient. My goal was to make sure I leave them thinking about me. Yum.
