What is the one thing that your beloved wants more of from you? According to a recent poll by the dating site Zoosk.com (via The Vancouver Sun), it’s not your time, attention or money they desire most — it’s your irreplaceable and utterly unique kisses.
The survey, which was done in honour of International Kissing Day (July 6 — who knew?), discovered that an overwhelming majority of men and women want their partner to kiss them more often. The poll of more than 1,600 people discovered that nine in 10 men and women hold the secret hope for more smooches from the one they love.
Strangely, the survey also revealed that both men and women feel like they’re the ones always doing the kissing rather than being kissed. Men, however, have the lead on going in for a lip-lock, with 76 percent saying they are the ones who lean in for a kiss. In contrast, 55 percent of women said the same thing.
Wondering what kind of smooch your partner likes best? The survey’s results may offer some helpful hints on how to please your amour. Apparently women favour kissing in the French style (avec tongue, but not too much tongue), and as a result they put a premium on gentlemen who know their way around a dental crown, so to speak.
Men aren’t as choosy about their special lady’s kissing skill level and are pleased as long as their ladies pucker up with feeling. Moreover they’ll forgive a bad kisser if she’s “better at other things.” (Who else is afraid to ask what that phrase really means?)
If you really want to give your partner a thrill it’s wise to avoid a few kissing no-nos. Bad breath, biting (hey now!), a mouth like a leaky tap and a too short kiss were also cited by the majority polled as turnoffs.
