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?

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.
