The ABC's of kissing

How to kiss has an average search volume of 8 100. This means that even though we claim to know the ins and outs of kissing, there are many who still want to know how to perfect this exercise.

But there’s more to kissing than the physical interaction. It’s about what leads up to it, right?


You can’t kiss someone you aren’t into (unless you’re playing a game of Spin the Bottle, but that’s a story for another day). Before anything ever happens, you must be attracted to each other. Because after the attraction, your mind runs wild with thoughts of spending time together and getting closer to them. And it can only happen if there’s an initial spark. You don’t even have to say much, but your body language and eye contact will speak for itself.


The fresher your breath, the more confident you will be. But in order for your breath to be fresh, you must first know how to cure bad breath. The only solution is brushing your teeth with a Closeup Cool Breeze toothpaste. Fresh breath is a major turn on! Keep a few breath mints or sugar-free gum on hand to refresh your mouth after a meal.


Time. To. Make. Your. Move. You’ve clicked, now what? Nothing should stop you from getting closeup with your crush. In fact, we encourage it! You’re attracted to each other; your breath smells breezy…now it’s time to get close. Don’t force it. Just find a gap to get near your crush and take it from there. Your lips will touch, eventually.

There’s more to kissing than meets the eye. Like some of the best things in life, it’s about the journey, not the destination.
