kiss meh, stupid !

The kiss is something you just know how to handle , it comes naturally and it has a lot of yummy results; you can take for example the following : a kiss can establish if you are chemically compatible with someone, a kiss can open your taste for lust (if you know what I mean) and…forget sex, kissing can be one of the most intimate, sensual, and just plain fun things you can do with another person. And as anyone who is sex-educated knows: the better the foreplay, the better the sex.
No one really knows the origin of the kiss. But, the only bad kisses are the „Kiss of Death” and „Kiss My . . . (well, you know)”.
