Apparently it’s National Kissing Day! Who knew? The only lips I’m interested in smooching are hundreds of miles away (frowny face), but I’m happy to use this holiday as an excuse to talk about other places that ca be kissed. According to research conducted by William Cane for his book The Art of Kissing, 96 percent of women like their partner to focus on kissing their neck during a make-out session. Unfortunately, we’re either not conveying that or dudes are not getting the hint, because that same study showed that only 10 percent of men give the neck any smooching. Now, I like getting kissed on the neck as much as anybody, but there are plenty of other places I like to be kissed besides my lips that sometimes are neglected. What about you?
The other night I went on a date. I was following my own advice about getting back to dating basics, and thought it would be a good idea to invite my date to a live taping of a game show that I was offered tickets to. Perfect. A date where we could just have some good, clean fun. Three minutes in the door and the woman checking us in, who I should mention had a raging herpes outbreak on her lip, asked: “Are you a couple?” Keep reading »
It’d been a nice night with mixed drinks and homey Brooklyn fare. The conversation hadn’t teetered, except in those first moments when we were testing the waters. Dipping our feet.
Then she said, “I find it funny that people feel uncomfortable in silence.”
I didn’t say anything. She smiled. We felt comfortable. Keep reading »

For your edification, I have rounded up the different varieties of bad kissers and broken them down by the traits they share with members of the animal kingdom.

Now, I don’t personally get it, but if you decide you want to hold on to your virginity until marriage, go for it. Knock yourself out. But I really cannot get behind these folks who literally won’t even kiss anyone until marriage. If you’re not going to bone someone before you tie the knot, kissing them at least gives you a tiny sense of their erotic capabilities. That’s why I fear for this couple, shown in the preview for a new series on TLC called “The Virgin Diaries.” If their first kiss (ever!) is a sign of what’s to come — a big ol’ sloppy mess! — I hope they know a good dry cleaner and an even better lawyer.

“After one of our scenes, the directors said, ‘This is feeling a little goofy. Let’s try this with a kiss at the end.’ And I thought, ‘Holy s—! I’ve never kissed on-camera before. What do I have to do? I didn’t take that class in college.’ Emma’s just this total pro. She pulls out her lip gloss and says, ‘It’s cherry. That cool with you?’ That kiss shall forever be my deer in ‘Stand by Me.’ It’s my moment alone. No one but me will ever be able to treasure it.”
—Josh Groban talks about his first onscreen kiss ever with Emma Stone in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” In the movie, Josh plays Emma’s douche-y boyfriend. But in real life, douche-y guys don’t make analogies to “Stand By Me.” [People] Keep reading »
The School of French Kissing For Dogs would gross me out if I didn’t see Amelia smooching her pup Lucca on a regular basis. (You know she eats garbage off the street, right?) [Lucca does not use tongue ever. -- Editor] How soon until PETA busts a nut over this UCB skit? It’s comedy, guys! And it looks like doggies got peanut butter out of it. And, you know, some lovin’.

Okay Twi-hards and Potterheads, the battle is on in the 2011 MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category. Let’s just say it’s not looking like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have an easy third win this year.
Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are rumored to be giving the real-life “Twilight” couple a run for their popcorn.
So who should take home the prize? Let’s take a look back at previous lip-lockin’ victors. Read more… Keep reading »
