Want To Be A Better Kisser? Try These Tips

In honor of International Kissing Day on July 6, we're bringing this story to your attention again.
Kissing is something everyone learned how to do perfectly in high school, right? Wrong. Like every aspect of physical intimacy, kissing technique can always be honed and perfected to suit your changing tastes, as well as your partner's. But the thing is, many adults don't give it enough thought, since learning how to kiss is often associated with our awkward teen years.
