A Kiss

"The anatomical juxtaposition of the two orbicular orris muscles in the state of contraction" ~ dictionary

  I was re-reading a blog post from a friend of mine about a kiss....
   I remembered that I put it on my list of things to write about. When we are young (teenagers, let's say) we think of a kiss as a progression to something more. Indeed, a kiss is foreplay that can and often leads to sex. Kissing is also more or less socially acceptable in public whereas sex is less so. So, we go on thinking of kissing as a way to a means.
   I have discovered as many others have also discovered that a kiss can be so much more. When I think back to younger days and people that I had intimate relations with...what I remember most is not the penetrative acts as much as it is the kisses. The kisses are less a physical act as the are an emotional one. The kiss is about passion and desire. It is giving and receiving in one. Kissing is about conquest and surrender at the same moment.

 It may not seem much to some
To ones whose hearts are cold,
But to those that care to feel
A kiss is worth more than gold

    Many prostitutes have often excluded kissing from their services for hire. They might be willing to do many acts of sex including oral, anal, toe sucking, S&M, and a long list of other kinks but when it comes to kissing, the act is simply too intimate and is reserved only for their loved ones. Sex is an exercise that is a means to a paycheck but a kiss requires an emotional investment.
    I saw a movie back in the late seventies ( I can't remember the name of it) where a cop was getting info from a high class call girl. The cop promised not to arrest her for the info exchange. She was enamoured with him and offered him a freebie from her menu (it actually was menu). He noticed that the most expensive thing on the menu was "a simple kiss". He wondered why and thought it harmless. She gave him the kiss for free and he found out why it was the most expensive thing she had to offer. He was changed forever and fell in love with her.
    After that, I never underestimated the power of the kiss. As I told Janie in the comments of her blog....
"I know what kissing does for me and yes, I feel more intimate when kissing then I do in form of penetration, giving or receiving. If the kiss isn’t good then it is all downhill from there. A great kiss however will turn me to mush. It’s the passion. Nothing beats it."

   I for one, do not shy away  from a kiss. If I feel a connection with a person then I am usually quite willing to share a kiss. It becomes the icing on the cake and then I feel like I have truly connected with that person in a greater way than any other act will make. It gives me a warm glow. As for the disbelievers to my theory, ask yourself this.... After having great sex with a person, what do you naturally feel like doing with them after? Hmm?

 The kiss seals the deal.

Just my two cents worth...feel free to add your opinions or to leave comments (please do)
