According to the article, it is important to bring the connection back into your relationship with making out! WOW! That’s great news! The simple joys of kissing the one you love. The connection and intimacy are of utmost importance.
“But it’s crucial to make time for making out, Blakeway said. “Kissing is one of the first ways we connect sexually.” “And then over time it goes down. But there are some physical things that make kissing important. It decreases the level of cortisol, which is a stress hormone and it increases oxytocin, which is a bonding hormone. And that’s why, chemically speaking, kissing makes people more relaxed and builds connection. Chinese medicine says that the mouth and the tongue have a connection to the heart. So it’s the same idea. Kissing attaches people to each other.”
She goes on to say that, “Kissing can be “more intimate than having sex” but is one of the first things to go in a long-term or sexless marriage, says Jill Blakeway, clinic director of the YinOva Center in New York City and author of the forthcoming book Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido. When kissing falls by the wayside, it’s the first step to losing passion in a relationship, she notes.”
Need some tips on kissing? Blakeway suggests:
“Gently slide your tongue into your partner’s mouth and then move deeper,” Blakeway says. “Besides lighting up all the nerve endings in the mouth, it also stimulates the salivary glands. Believe it or not, saliva contains testosterone, and testosterone provides a little jolt to your libido. So ‘swapping spit’ is actually a key to activating your sex drive!”
We often get so busy that we stray away from the things that mean the most and are what is truly important in life. It’s about the moments we share with our loved ones! Don’t forget to take the time to kiss and make out with the one you love. It will do wonders for your relationship.
