Your Best First Kiss ... Were you 12, 21, 41?

Written and compiled by Lauren K. of Love Kudos

Recently I was asked on an OK Cupid dating test how many people I had kissed. Can you fathom how many people you have kissed in your lifetime so far? The estimated number I revealed is irrelevant, but it prompted me to think about what made my best kisses so great and the horrendous ones so memorable too.

This week Love Kudos requested our readers to reveal their "Best First Kiss" stories and more than a dozen people sent in comments and best first kiss stories. Lindsay and I selected the best of the best first kiss stories to share with all of our Love Kudos readers.

Kissing Styles: Washing Machine, Lizard, Face Sucker ...

Written By Lindsay K.  and Lauren K. of Love Kudos

Tongue wrestling, sucking face, frenching, snogging, necking, pecking, playing tonsil hockey, giving someone a big smacker are all descriptions for the common behavior: kissing.

According to a popular TV commercial, the average person will spend 20,000 minutes in their lifetime kissing. Therefore, you want to make sure you are the best you can be at this common display of affection. A first kiss can determine whether or not he or she gets another date, so it is essential that you have a lot of tricks up your sleeve in the kissing domain and can be a chameleon with your kissing style.

Romantic Love has three components—romance, attachment, and sexual arousal—and kissing activates all three, says Helen Fisher, author of Why Him? Why Her? Both men and women also kiss to assess genetic compatibility. That's why kissing someone new can create sparks—or cause a budding romance to wither on the branch.   Last year, the magazine, Psychology Today, explored gender distinctions with kissing and found that men and women have different kissing styles overall.
