This Is Their First Kiss

We’ve all had those awful first kisses that make us want to sterilize our mouths and swear off human intimacy for a long while. But, for the most part, kissing is one of those activities that is beautiful and intimate by nature, even if you barely know the person you’re snogging. In “First Kiss” a short film directed by Tatia Pillieva, we get to play fly on the wall for 20 complete strangers’ first kisses.

The preceding interchanges are incredibly awkward, as is to be expected, but once the couples get over the weirdness and lock lips, Whoa. The kisses range from really sweet and intimate to sexy and passionate. It’s just like real life, only without the cocktails and conversation part. Who ever thought watching strangers kiss could be so life affirming? [Digg]

Update: As much as we wanted to believe these were strangers kissing because their hearts yearned to connect, it’s actually an advertisement for Wren’s Fall 2014 clothing line. And many of those beautiful smoochers are professional actors and models. Womp, womp. [Slate]

Jessica Alba On Kissing Your Kids On The Lips: “People Allow Dogs To Lick At Their Mouths”

In a teaser for Jessica Alba’s Redbook cover interview, the magazine shared a “sneak peak” at a few of the star’s juiciest quotes. Spoiler alert: they’re not the least bit juicy.

In her interview, the actress tackles the hot-button issue of parent/child kissing. Jessica is passionate in her belief that parents should kiss their children on the mouth because “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths.”

While I’m not particularly offended by parents kissing their kids on the lips (except in the Stephanie Seymour kind of way, like when they’re adults), I’m not sure that “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths” really sells me on the whole thing. Because … are you French kissing your kids or is this just a mwah on the mouth. There is a difference. The difference is TONGUE. Keep reading »

Do Not Want For Valentine’s Day: Make-Out Practice Pillow

“When I was in middle school, everyone joked about making out with pillows for practice,” said Emily King, the designer who created the Make-Out Practice Pillow. “I’m assuming that I was not the only one for whom the jokes had some truth.”

Emily, who was inspired to make the pillow with a mouth after coming across some CPR dummies in a dumpster near her house, is aware that the finished product, which sells for $30, is incredibly creepy. Still, she has love for the thing and thinks it would make a great Valentine’s Day gift:

“I have to admit that when I mentioned this idea to my friends, the reaction from anyone over the age of 25 tended to be variations on ‘that’s really creepy,. and anyone under the age of 25 thought it was hilarious and awesome: middle-school to college-age seemed to be the sweet spot of people who really liked the idea…I thought it was pretty hilarious myself until I actually made the things. They are super creepy. But I sort of love them for that.”

Women’s magazines (and probably Snapple Facts) have been touting it for years, but there’s real science behind it: kissing is good for your health. You already know the obvious reasons it makes your life better, but as it turns out, it makes your body a lot better too. Kissing deserves more appreciation in its own right rather just as a pitstop on the way to sexytime. It’s an experience that is unlike any other form of, ahem, communication, and it can have about a million different meanings and nuances. Here are some ways kissing improves your health and makes life generally more awesome. Keep reading »

A family filed a lawsuit yesterday against Camp Emerson, in Hinsdale, Massachusetts, because their 15-year-old daughter was kicked out of summer camp for kissing a boy. The suit, which refers to the Westport, Connecticut, teenager as “Jane Doe,” said she met the boy on something called “court time” when girls and boys play basketball together and that male counselors “kindly and nurturingly encouraged and/or enticed” the boy to kiss Jane Doe. He did and then the pair “went behind the arts and crafts shed and kissed” some more.  She was also accused of taking off her bra and “acting inappropriately,” aka being a teenager with hormones making out with a boy.  While the boy got a high five afterwards from counselors, Jane Doe was allegedly called a “a slut and/or loose and/or fast and/or a tramp” by the camp director. Camp Emerson kicked both kids out and had her escorted off of camp property by a cop. Keep reading »

Cafe Lets Patrons Pay With … Kisses?

Metro St. James kissing cafe
Kiss for me!

No cash at the coffee shop? No problem. If you’re at the Metro St. James coffeehouse in Sydney, Australia, you’re allowed to pay with a kiss. No, you don’t have to makeout with the pimply barista — the crew at the Metro just want to watch. All this month, the cafe is running a special promotion where kissing couples — of any kissing configuration — get free coffee for smooching in-store. The kicker is, you have to show up between 9 and 11 a.m., and you have to be totally okay with performing a sexual act in exchange for free coffee.

“We’ll watch you, it has to be a real kiss,” chides a Metro waiter. “I can see if it’s a fake kiss. I’m kind of a specialist.” Well, okay then. The waiter then stands there and watches the couple kiss, determining whether the kiss was for real or not. Kind of creepy, no? Keep reading »

The French have finally added a word to the dictionary to describe their most famous expression of l’amour: the French kiss. The Petit Robert 2014 French dictionary added the verb “galocher,” which means to kiss with tongues. Previously, the French described French kissing literally, as in “kissing at length in the mouth,” the dictionary’s publisher explained. What a mouthful! Instead “galocher” will explain the amorous smooches, which take their name after the word for “ice skate,” as someone seems to think French kissing are like tongues sliding around the ice. It sounds much more elegant than in real life. Makes you wonder what took them so long? [NBC News] [Photo of French kissing via Shutterstock]

How To Get Rid Of A Hickey That’s Cramping Your Style

Man giving a woman a hickey and how to get rid of it.

A good, sexy romp can mean not just an orgasm, but a hickey or love bite along the way. Nothing wrong with that, but you might not want to broadcast your hookup to the world (or, um, at work). We have to be honest: just like any other bruise, a hickey will not go away overnight.

Depending on the intensity, it can take a few days to a week to disappear completely (trust us — we’ve been there). It’s a waiting game — just ask Kim Kardashian — but there are some ways to reduce its appearance and cover up the damage.

Check out our tips for treating and hiding that hickey below, and feel free to share your own tips in the comments. Read more on Your Tango…
