Whether it’s a brief peck on the lips or a long, sensual smooch, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who does not enjoy kissing in one form or another! While kissing may seem like it’s a fairly straight-forward process, the truth is that there are many different forms of kissing. Actually, kissing can be so varied and unique that each type of kiss feels entirely different. While it would be impossible to list all the different types of kissing, we’ve made a list of 30 of the most popular types of kiss and why you might consider adding them to you smooching routine!
#1. Slow and Steady Kisses
Kissing doesn’t have to be full of passion and fury; sometimes, the most important kisses are the slowest and deepest. Rather than trying to overwhelm your partner with your exuberance, consider a long smooch that lasts at least half-a-minute. Use this time to really show your sweetheart what they mean to you using your mouth.
#2. French Kissing
The total opposite of slow and steady kisses, French kissing is full of passion and desire. You French kiss someone when your tongue enters their mouth or your tongue touches that of the other person.
#3. Kissing on the Hand
If you’re a guy who wants to show his woman a little bit of respect, ditch the smooches on the mouth and instead go for her hand. Nothing tells a girl that she is loved and honored quite like a gentle kiss on the back of the hand.
#4. Forehead Kisses
Girls go absolutely crazy for kisses on the forehead. When a man kisses his girl on the forehead, she doesn’t have to feel like he simply wants to make out. A forehead kiss is a sweet way to show someone that they truly matter to you.
#5. The Short but Sweet Peck
A gentle peck on the lips or even the cheek is entirely non-committal but still tells a lot about your feelings for someone. The peck kiss is a great option if you aren’t sure about the relationship, but want to throw out a hint without a full-fledged smooch on the mouth.
#6. Kissing One Lip
We generally think of kisses as involving both lips, but people actually enjoy a single lip kiss. Rather than going for the entire mouth, a single lip kiss involves kissing one of your partner’s lips without the other.
#7. Kisses in the Morning
Unsure of how to get your husband or wife up and going in the morning? Start the day out with a soft kiss!
#8. Conversation Kisses
If you’re in the midst of a conversation and tender feelings start to rise, consider making a brief interruption with a swift kiss.
#9. Drinking and Kissing
Okay, this one isn’t for the faint of stomach, but some people actually enjoy kissing while they’re in the process of drinking. During the kiss, some of their drink is transferred to the other person’s mouth. Be careful while doing this one – some partners might not enjoy a mouth full of your Diet Coke!
#10. Kisses on the Shoulders
Some people love being tenderly kissed on the shoulders, giving them the feeling that they are loved and appreciated in a very intimate way.
#11. Australian Kisses
Okay, if you’re not much into the French way of doing things, consider an Australian kiss. An Australian kiss is similar to a French kiss but isn’t quite as fancy.
#12. Kisses on the Stomach
Whether your partner is a guy or a girl, a tender kiss on the stomach is a flirty way to spice things up.
#13. Kisses on the Cheek
Not sure if you’d get slapped if you kiss your crush on the lips? By-pass the smooch and go for a cheek kiss instead. These kisses are innocent and gentle, while still opening the door for more in the future.
#14. Kisses on the Back
Men generally are considered the kissers in a relationship, but kisses on the back can be a sweet but passionate way for a woman to show her love for her husband.
#15. A Kiss for an Angel
Do you feel like your girlfriend is an angel? Try gently kissing her on the eyelids…just make sure that her eyes are closed before you go in for the kiss!
#16. Eskimo Kissing
Your lips aren’t the only way to kiss! Try Eskimo kissing by rubbing your noses together rather than your lips.
#17. Kissing the Ears
If you want to put some spark into your marriage, try kissing your partner on the ears. Nothing is quite as much a turn-on as some ear-kissing.
#18. Butterfly Kisses
Just like the Eskimo kissing, butterfly kisses don’t involve the lips. With butterfly kisses, you connect by fluttering your eyelashes together.
#19. Sharing Lip Gloss
Want to get into some deep kissing? Put on a bunch of lip gloss, then make a game of seeing how much of it you can transfer to your man while smooching.
#20. Sharing Fruit
