The Art of the Kiss

The ARt of the Kiss

The Little Book on
The Art of the Kiss by William Yarbro

Upon opening the
first page of “The Little Book on The Art of the Kiss” by William Yarbro I was
admittedly skeptical – after all, kissing is such a universal act, what can
there be to know that we haven’t already learned through our own experiences?

“Your kiss is a personal gift expressing your feelings
toward that person at that particular moment.” But from the outset I felt
encouraged to think of the kiss in a different way – viewing the kiss as something
to be cherished and not taken for granted.

So who would like this book? There is advice for novice kissers,
even including advice on how to kiss with braces for the first time (according
to the author, braces are in vogue these days!).  But the book is equally suited
to long-term couples who have probably got set in their lip-locking ways and
could do with some brand new tips to spice things up.

Yarbro also considers that fact that while kissing comes
naturally to some, others could do with more practice.  He takes the time to
explain how to convey “the message” of your kiss as he describes the different
meanings
and techniques of over
thirty kisses.

The author even takes us on a journey outlining the story of his
own kisses  – unless you’ve been very
lucky I think most of us can relate to the awkward beginnings of “the first
kiss”!

The “Kissing Dos and Don’t’s” chapter is well put together and made
me laugh out loud in places.  Have you tried the “Searching the cavern” technique?
If, like me, you haven’t heard of it, I think this one will come as a surprise!

What I like best about this book is that there is truly a kiss
for every mood – and the sensual descriptions are so evocative that you are
ready to pucker up by the end of the final line!

Already consider yourself to be an expert kisser expert?  Well, 6 July is International Kissing Day so you’d better have a
quick flick through to be really sure…after all, you can never have too much
practice!
