A kiss can mean so many things depending on what type of kiss it is and who it’s coming from. A kiss can be one of the most magical experiences of your life. Every kiss offers a special connection to the other person, whether it’s a kiss of friendship, passion or a warm greeting, it gives out strong vibes.
Kisses are not just reserved solely for the face and there’s plenty of places where a kiss on the body is welcomed.
It is said that a kiss is the expression of our souls which is why there are so many options to choose from. You will kiss your lover much differently than that of a dear friend. Here are some of the different types of kisses and what they mean.
1- Single Lip Kiss
This kiss involves sandwiching one lip inside yours and kissing them while simultaneously sucking on it. This type of kiss shows that you are really into your partner.
2- Cheek Kiss
This is one of the most common types of kisses. There is no categorisation for this, it can be between friends, a couple, after a first date or as the picture depicts, between a mother and her child. It is a small and sweet gesture to express how you like someone.
3- Forehead Kiss
This kind of kiss can either be a gesture of friendship or one that is given at the start of a romantic relationship. Whatever be the case, it implies that you really like and trust the person.
4- Hand Kiss
In this type of kiss you hold the partners’ hand with your fingers and kiss the back of the palm. This is a chivalrous kind of kiss that depicts your likeness for someone.
5- Eskimo Kiss
In Eskimo kiss both the partners rub their noses against each other and back and forth. This is a kiss showing affection and we see it often between a parent and his/her child. This kind of kiss is also adopted by people who live in the colder part of the world, for the mere chancing that a lip-to-lip kiss could stick their lips together.
6- French Kiss
This is one complex kiss that requires mastery, but the easier way would be to just go with the flow of your emotions as the French Kiss proceeds from passion, romance and desire and expresses the same too.
7- Spider Man Kiss
As the name suggests, it is what the picture shows- an upside down kiss. An adventurous and clear way of showing the intimacy between a couple. This is less risky when doing horizontally on the couch or bed and is a kiss of passion between lovers.
8- Butterfly Kisses
Kissing is not always about lips and sometimes it’s only about the eyelashes. In this type of kissing, the eyelashes do the work, and is a great stimulant to bringing the couples together.
9- Air Kiss
This type of kiss can be popularly seen in the French movies. It is carried out with a verbal “mwuah” whispered close to a persons’ cheeks without actually kissing. This is also practised as a form of greeting among friends and relatives and is a non-romantic, friendly gesture.
10- Blowing Kiss
Who doesn’t love surprises? As you go with your usual kiss, surprise your partner by suddenly blowing into their mouth and inflating thei cheeks for a second. They will love you for this surprise element.
11- Chocolate Hershey’s Kiss
Hungry, kissable and adventurous? Add this to your menu for a lasting and cute relationship.
12- Lingering Kiss
This type of kiss involves kissing lip to lip for a long period of time and the Lingering kiss is classic of a new love, where the excitement of starting to be the other person makes you hold on for longer.
13- Secret Message Kiss
This kind of kiss is usually shared between really close couples where they share a secret or coded message in between a French kiss, such that all that anyone suspects is being done is a harmless, loving kiss.
14- “Leave a Mark” Kiss
The leave-a-mark kiss is a very playful type of kissing where the girl puts on lipstick for the sole intention of leaving a reminiscence on the guy’s face.
15- Lizard Kiss
The Lizard kiss or Lizzy kiss is when two partners kiss with their tongues and use no lips. The tongue is moved round and about. As is obvious this would be shared between really intimate couples and is a hint of how affectionate they are and their relationship is.
16- Seductive Kiss
This is where you bit an open mouth that’s much like a subtle French kiss (less tongue though). A kiss to win someone’s heart and seduce them. It will make anyone’s knees weak.
17- Jaw Kiss
This is a kiss that is shared between two people who are really into each other. It is a soft kiss which sends down shivers of sensuality to the receiver.
