Personally, it feels strange even writing that title. Why wouldn’t parents kiss their kids on the lips? Isn’t that what all parents do? You know, kiss their kids on the lips to show their love? Apparently, some people find the idea of a parent kissing his or her son or daughter on the lips deranged and disgusting. But who? Keep reading »
In a new feature called “Dear Wendy Updates,” people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Pecker’s Girlfriend” who complained that her boyfriend only ever gave her pecks and not ever the passionate kisses she craved. I suggested she ask how he likes to be kissed and give lots of positive reinforcement when he kissed her the way she likes. Some readers suggested she might have bad breath that’s turning off her boyfriend. After the jump, see how she reacted to those suggestions as well as how things are going with her boyfriend these days. Keep reading »
Programming note: I left town early for the long weekend and set some posts to run yesterday and today, but I mixed things up a bit and accidentally ran “Shortcuts” yesterday. Sorry for the confusion!
I’ve been with my boyfriend nine months and he is by far the most caring, loving and fun partner I’ve ever been with. I’ve been his first everything though: first kiss, first girlfriend, first … you get the clue. Initially, I was a little weary about dating someone with such little experience, but I’m so glad I looked beyond those first impressions. There is one issue, however, that has left me feeling frustrated and a little helpless. My boyfriend’s a pecker. That is, he only kisses me with pecks: when he greets me, when we’re “making out,” when we’re having sex … you get the idea. Our first kisses weren’t like this — this was something that our kissing slowly evolved into. I’ve made it clear I don’t like the “pecks” all the time, and I’ve tried sexily coaxing him into more naughty kisses, saying “I like this” and kissing him with a little bit more lip or tongue, but the pecking seems to only be getting worse. He gets into habits kind of easily, and I am scared this is something that is here to stay. It’s really such a shame since he CAN kiss excellently! I’ve emphasized this too. I constantly reassure him he is an excellent kisser when he does do it well. But, I don’t know what has happened to these sensual, passionate kisses. I’m losing patience. — Chicken-Kisser

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?!

“Yes I kissed a mystery man in Vegas. Everyone wants to know who he is or what his name is. … So would I. LOL.”

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.

But Carey Mulligan‘s boyfriend, Shia LaBeouf, keeps his eyes closed. Which way do you prefer to smooch? [New York City, 3/2/2010] Keep reading »
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.
Thanks for all your hilarious stories, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest! Keep reading »
