There’s nothing worse than a sloppy kiss. The moisture, the rogue tongue going every which way, the groping hands. It’s enough to make you shiver (and not in the fun way). Do you really want to be known as the Face Licker, or the Tongue Stabber? No, we didn’t think so. No human on earth wants that. You (and the rest of us, really) want to be known as a fantastic kisser, as the man or woman who is the master of both the slow, sensual kiss and the wild, passionate make out. You want to be the person that others actually want to smooch on. The person who inspires fantasies and gossip (the good, flattering kind). Remember, we can always aspire to be better, both in and out of the bedroom. And kissing is no exception.
Do you really want your date to mistake you for a slobbering dog? Hell no. That’s no fun for anyone. So, we’ve come to the rescue once again. Heed these essential tips, and you will be well on your way to becoming a kissing master. Fantasies, gossip and adoring looks included. (Slobbering optional, if you’re into that kind of thing.)

1. Keep Fresh Breath
Especially if you’ve gone out for eat food together, you want to keep your breath minty. Bad breath is a serious turn-off. If you can’t sneak away for a quick brush keep a pack of gum in your pocket or in your car. She will really appreciate it. What could have been a good kiss can be a complete turn-off if you’ve got dog breath.
2. Lead with your breath
Breathe a little on her neck and pull away first. This will build anticipation and show her that you can control yourself. You can brush her hair behind her shoulder (if she has long hair), or put you hands on her face while you breathe in her yummy woman bouquet. Notice the smell of her hair and her skin and don’t move too fast.
3. Lick your lips.
When you go in for the kiss, moisten up first, but not too much. A little chap stick never hurt anybody either.
4. Less is more.
Especially in the beginning. Kiss her lips gently.
5. Pay attention.
Listen to her breathing and be aware of what she is doing. Is she taking deeper breaths or trying to pull away from you? If she is pushing you away, things aren’t working out.
6. Mimic the woman’s moves.
If she is receptive she will give you body language clues. Her body might start moving, she might try to get closer to you or put her arms around your body. If she opens her mouth, do the same.
7. If she seems open to your tongue, use it gently.
A woman’s mouth is usually smaller than a man’s mouth and she can feel overwhelmed by your tongue easily.
8. If she is receptive…
Keep doing what you’re doing and follow her cues.
