History of International Kissing Day

International Kissing Day was established in 2006 to focus on the kissing that takes place between lovers, and to celebrate the place it holds in our society. One of the most surprising things about this holiday is the research that revealed that 5% of people over the age of 45 are locking lips at least 31 times a week! Who would have thought that old fires burn so hot?
Events are organized all over to celebrate International Kissing Day, with events for those who have lovers, and those who are looking for them. Kiss-in’s let you test drive a potential dates lips before you ever hook up with them for an actual date, and kissing classes help you learn how to become an amazing kisser.


But romantic kissing isn’t the only place that kissing happens in our culture and society. Among the high society, it’s not at all unusual to greet with a kiss on each cheek, a tradition that heralds back to the Old World. Young children frequently get kisses from their loving parents, though it’s something that tends to fade as children get older.
Over all, kissing has played an important role in social bonding since time out of mind, and International Kissing Day celebrates them all!


How to Celebrate International Kissing Day
Well that’s simple enough isn’t it? Wake up in the morning and kiss your partner good morning, then greet your friends with a quick kiss on the cheek to show them how much you appreciate them. If you’re a bit more reserved, place a chaste kiss on the back of the hand of friends you hold in high regard. There’s a million different ways to deliver a kiss to those you care about, and they don’t all have to be romantic! So on International Kissing Day, pucker up every chance you get! Just remember the breath mints.

The Art of the Kiss

This book will help you to become a great kisser. Either as a beginner, or as someone who has been kissing the same person for a long time and is ready for a refresher. As with most personal gifts, you should take kissing seriously.  Use this book to make your kisses special, each and every time. It will show you the way to kiss, the best first kiss, the many different kinds of kisses and what to do to spice up your kissing with your long time partner. 

The Little Book on The Art of the Kiss by William Yarbro, is a fun must read! As a woman we often seem to forget that men have feelings and passion. I would have assumed any book written about kissing would come from a woman...but Mr. Yarbro shares his first kiss trauma with us, sorry for your pain but it was funny. So lesson learned and now I can say for any young person kissing for the first time or any older experienced kisser, it is never to late to learn or try something new and we all need to keep the passion in our relationships alive and popping! The 72 pages will make you laugh, remember your first kiss, think about the last time you had a real good kiss and will make you want to try some new kissing techniques. I am still looking forward to kissing someone with braces!
