Love may be blind, but kissing can leave you deaf. A Chinese woman was left partially deaf in her left ear after a particularly, um, passionate kiss from her boyfriend. According to China Daily, “The kiss reduced the pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear.” Seriously?! Luckily, the woman is expected to regain her full hearing in about two months, but Shanghai Daily is warning others about the dangers excessive kissing presents: “A strong kiss may cause an imbalance in the air pressure between two inner ears and lead to a broken ear drum.” Is nothing safe?!

My first kiss was in 9th grade with a girl I had a crush on named Connie, during a game of spin the bottle. She had a squeezable body and big juicy lips. I was smitten! Alas, I never got the cojones to do anything else with Connie, so I guess my “real” first kiss was with my first-ever boyfriend, Mark, later that year. He kissed my on the balcony outside my best friend’s bedroom and (duh) I wrote all about it in my diary that night. Why am I thinking ’bout kissing? #MyFirstKiss is a trending topic on Twitter.
As usual, it’s hilarious, by which I mean everyone else has been getting it on during nap time in preschool. Keep reading »
That first kiss is a cupcake-shaped grenade that explodes into springtime rain. As a man, it’s more important than the best seats in the stadium, that huge job promotion, or the first time your father calls you for advice. It is a prelude to all the best things in life: waking up to an empty bed and smelling toaster waffles, that conversation where you swear to always love her and she tells you the same, the pile of limbs and laughter following the spectacular failure of an exotic sex position.

There are awkward kisses, and then there are awkward kisses. We asked you to share your most embarrassing smooch story in exchange for the French flick “Shall We Kiss?” and man, have you guys had some hilarious lip-locking sessions! The winner, however, is commenter Terpgirl131 for this comment:
I went to visit my best friend in Chicago for her birthday when I was 16. After her party, we ended up at her crush’s house with he and his friend, and he had a sauna in his basement. Marissa and David left to go do their thing, leaving me alone with this kid who I’d never met before. He immediately pounced on me and started making out, with no transition towards it or anything. It was super awkward, but I was so surprised I couldn’t do anything but kiss back. When I finally made an excuse to leave, I saw that he had legitimately come on my mesh shorts. Being 16 and super paranoid, I went to the woman’s health clinic and got the morning after-after pill. So yes, this 5 minute make out session ended with me getting Plan B.
Your bed is a logical place to make out. It’s comfortable, it’s private, and if the make-out session leads to sex, there will be no need for awkwardly getting up and walking to another part of the house. It’s no wonder most of us think of our bedrooms when it’s time to get busy. However, if you’ve only ever made out in beds, it’s time to push your boundaries and get frisky out in the world. Here are our top places to make out. Read more … Keep reading »
First of all, I just have to say that I am not the kind of girl that makes out with strangers. Whatever kind of girl that is.
On a Tuesday morning in late February, I took this particular train to a job interview in Camden. And in black stilettos and a waistcoat that displayed my assets to best effect, I also took the train back home. While waiting on the platform a tall, dark, and exceptionally well-dressed man stands next to me.
“Excuse me? I want to go to Green Park. Is this the right train?” Keep reading »
