About the author:
A kiss is an immensely powerful thing used to win the heart, to show love, to greet, to distract, and to betray. When I had my first kiss, neither of us knew what we were doing or why we were doing it. He was a sweetheart of a person and was probably as confused as I was. What were we doing?
I’ll never forget the slimy texture of his tongue swimming around aimlessly in my mouth. Many questions orbited in my mind. Do I sit here and stare at him? Do I close my eyes as they do on the soap operas? Do I keep my hands to my side, or do I put them on his shoulder?
That experience left me with the impression that kissing was the nastiest thing two people could do, and I never wanted to do it again. The thought of kissing made my stomach turn for years, and I avoided it. When I fell in love for the first time, I learned that a kiss was one of the most powerful expressions of love two people could experience. If done with the right person, in the right setting, and with the right intention, kissing can take your heart to a deeper level than sex ever could.
