Don’t you love a good, passionate kiss? Kissing is fun, pleasurable, and connecting! It can get the heart racing and the endorphins pumping. A good loving kiss can help reduce stress and anxiety. Kissing is not only good for your health, it’s great for your relationship. The skin on the lips is quite thin and our lips contain many nerve endings. Through our lips we can pick up on temperature, taste, mood, desires, and attitudes of our partner. No wonder why kissing can be so erotic!
We want to help you celebrate International Kissing Day on July 6th! Take advantage of this fun holiday to really enjoy some romantic touch and kissing time together with your spouse. We whipped up a fun game for you to print out and play to make 7/6 a great, kissable day!
Kissing is another powerful form of communication in relationships. How you kiss says a lot about each other and how one another is feeling. When you kiss, what do you communicate?

Or are you kissing to say, “get away, I need my space?” We created a free Kiss & Tell bedroom game have fun by aware of different types of kisses — and paying attention to what messages you’re sending and receiving when you make out!
