Our Mr Grey used many tricks in his extensive repertoire to tantalise and delight, always with the aim to drive desire deeper, hotter, harder, and often with little regard for the passage of time, building on arousal and anticipation with such devastating skill it well, leapt off the page…
Of all those deliberate, teasing talents what does it for you? To send my mind into free-fall and my heart pounding like a jackhammer without fail I need a proper, no-holds barred kiss. You may even have noticed in Meander that I have a bit of a thing for those toe-curling smooches – the type that leaves you senseless and dazed and more than a little wanton. 😉 Whether it’s slow and wet or hard and urgent, that enticing melding of lips and tongues holds its prime position as the erotic starter for a very good reason.
Kisses are beautifully persuasive things that lead to feelings of bonding and attachment. They’re vital at the start of a new romantic relationship just as they help maintain a deep connection in older ones. How many of you have dumped a potential new partner because his oral skills lacked certain finesse? A great kiss is as sexy as it is arousing and should never be underestimated as a precursor for deeper physical intimacy.
Science has now given us a peek into why those drugging kisses really are so addictive. The feelings of anticipation and excitement that come from deep, slow, wet, passionate kisses cause the brain to release feel-good endorphins and neurotransmitters (chemicals) like Dopamine, whose targeted actions includes voluntary movement and emotional arousal, and Noradrenaline for wakefulness and physical arousal.
So ladies, the next time a lover asks for a kiss the best thing to do is to kiss right back… 😉
