KISS are taking their End Of The Road world tour to Madison Square Garden in New York and to honor this event, we’re taking a look back at some of their greatest hits.
Paul Stanley penned this epic power ballad for Rod Stewart, but Peter Criss made it their own by lending his distinctive raspy vocals – leading it into US Top 20 chart success and becoming an eternal favorite with fans everywhere.
1. He’s totally smitten
No matter if it be smooching, snogging or lip locking, a great kiss says much about its recipient. Kisses can be sweet or bitter; sweet or spicy; life-saving or life-altering. A good kiss says so much.
Betty Everett’s timeless classic shows us that all it takes to understand someone’s feelings for us is one glance at their lips. Styron expertly depicts young Leslie’s tongue twists with his words, keeping readers glued to the page.
2. He’s giving you flirty eye contact
If he stares intently for several seconds before blinking, it could mean that he’s trying to figure out when is best time to kiss you. Eye contact flirting releases oxytocin which makes people feel warmer and happier.
Signs that someone is interested in you include his mirroring your movements or showing signs that he wants to get close.
3. He’s mirroring your movements
He may mirror your movements when kissing you, which indicates his interest and passion for you. He wants to ensure you’re comfortable while forging a relationship between himself and you.
He may also lean in, which is another sure sign he’s interested. Additionally, when he kisses your neck it becomes very romantic!
4. He’s kissing you on your shoulders and collarbone
Kissing on the shoulder or collarbone is an expression of affection and can be very romantic. These areas also contain erogenous zones; therefore if he kisses you there, it could mean he wants to please you sexually.
Body language expert Lillian Glass noted on her website that an over-the-head kiss could indicate your partner feels protective and nurturing towards you, or perhaps indicate his interest or even indicate attraction for you.
6. He’s focusing on you
If he seems interested in you, that could indicate an interest in exploring physical connection and evolving your relationship further. He could be dreaming of kissing you again or visualizing romantic possibilities.
He may also feel self-conscious about his technique, hoping you won’t judge him for using too much tongue or giving a wet kiss.
Faith Hill captures this magical moment perfectly in her song.
7. He’s asking you to move somewhere else
Kissing is a form of bonding between men and women alike, so if he can’t stop thinking about you, maybe that means he wants another opportunity to move in closer and kiss you once more!
Be sure to give him a kiss back as soon as he asks; both of you deserve it!
9. He’s giving you a hug
Hugs are an easy and intimate way to show affection, but knowing whether it’s romantic can be tricky. Luckily, there are signs you can keep an eye out for to identify whether a hug is romantic.
It’s always wonderful when a hug feels like a standing snuggle – a sure sign that they want nothing more than to spend all their time with you!
10. He’s giving you a kiss on your neck
Kissing on the neck can be an effective way to explore an erogenous zone and see how it affects both men and women. Kissing your partner on their neck allows you to explore this zone, see if it turns them on, and experience first-hand its sensuality.
If he’s giving you neck kisses, he likely wants to get intimate in some way with you. It’s up to you whether to reciprocate his affection – you might find that you actually enjoy it!
- How to Do a Spider-Man Kiss Upside Down
Kirsten Dunst recently revealed that, almost two decades later, Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s iconic kiss from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man remains an unforgettable romance classic despite it not actually being very romantic to film. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield recreated their signature upside-down kiss from their own franchise in an entertaining SNL skit. Check it out below. 1. Pull down the maskFew movie kisses have made history like Kirsten Dunst’s memorable scene from Spider-Man 2 where she kisses Peter Parker’s webslinger upside down after thanking him for saving her from muggers in an alleyway – marking his transition into manhood for good. It remains one of cinematic history’s iconic scenes and one that signifies his first kiss as an adult man. Tobey Maguire shared his memories from filming an upside-down makeout session during its 20th anniversary home release commentary, recalling how water got in his nose and made breathing difficult; but was pleased that such a scene has since become iconic cinema. Recreate the Spiderman Kiss at Home You can achieve a similar result at home by finding a firm surface to support your weight, such as a bed, couch or tree trunk. When placing something soft underneath, be sure to leave enough cushion so as to not damage any furniture if it should tip over unexpectedly. In addition, make sure there’s some way for you to hang upside-down without becoming dizzy and disoriented – then find a way to hang upside-down without becoming dizzy or disoriented! 2. Turn on the rainSpider-Man: Far From Home features some unforgettable scenes, but my personal favorite is Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s iconic upside down kiss scene from 2002 Sam Raimi film Spider-Man: Far From Home. After saving her from some bad guys in an alleyway, Peter Parker planted a passionate kiss on Mary Jane Watson after saving her. However, filming this romantic moment wasn’t quite so romantic – Tobey Maguire revealed during an interview with Variety that the shoot was extremely uncomfortable as rainwater got into Tobey Maguire’s nose meaning he couldn’t breathe properly out his mouth; in fact it’s incredible that Tobey could finish filming any scenes at all. Dunst recently discussed the legacy of her kiss, which has inspired imitations on various talk and game shows (Dawn French and Bear Grylls attempted it on The Graham Norton Show in 2014). Perhaps Tom Holland and Zendaya can recreate this scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home? I certainly hope so. 3. Hold each other upside downOne of the most memorable scenes from Spider-Man films was when Peter Parker suspended upside-down and kissed Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst). This scene became so beloved, it even made its way onto TikTok! Scene 2 takes place after Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) successfully subdued a group of muggers, then planted a kiss on Mary Jane as thanks for helping get out of tight spot. Danny Elfman provides soothing music in this breathtaking sequence which includes Peter and Mary Jane engaging in romantic make-out session – making for one romantic and dramatic film moment! Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies may not have the most heartwarming endings, yet one scene still makes us swoon. Kirsten Dunst recently discussed it, saying she wasn’t aware that the scene would become so iconic and felt tremendous pressure to live up to it. Additionally, she commented on its difficulty when recreating it later. 4. Let goHanging upside-down can be both thrilling and dangerous, particularly if you suffer from health conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure or glaucoma. Before trying this stunt, make sure that there is someone available who can hold your feet securely to prevent falls; also consult your physician if any chronic health conditions exist prior to undertaking such an attempt. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man features an iconic moment between Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) and MJ (Kirsten Dunst). After defeating four muggers, Spider-Man reappears next to MJ while upside-down and covered in rainwater in an alleyway nearby – an image which captures both romance and iconicity in equal measure. Miles and Gwen came close to recreating this scene in Across the Spider-Verse, though it wasn’t exactly identical. Still, they get credit for trying so hard.[…]
- How Do Lions Kiss?
Lions are magnificent animals with strong bodies that rank second only to tigers in size. Known for their loud roars that can be heard up to five miles away, lions hunt in packs using teamwork to take down prey that are larger and faster than them. Video footage showing a young girl kissing a lion at a zoo has gone viral, yet its significance lies deeper. The lesson this video imparts on viewers about dealing with wild animals should not be misconstrued as superficial entertainment alone. Lions are omnivoresLions are carnivores, yet they do consume some plant matter – most often from undigested stomach contents of prey animals they hunt. Furthermore, 10-50% of their diet comes from scavenging. Lions utilize licking and nuzzling as a way to strengthen social bonds among their pride members, similar to primate allogrooming behavior. A male will lick other males as part of an attempt to establish their rank and status within their pride. This bonding behavior helps establish male rank amongst themselves similar to allogrooming among primates. Lions are notoriously hungry creatures; they hunt animals even if they’re not hungry to satisfy their gluttonous natures and can consume up to 15% of their bodyweight at one sitting! When feasting on juicy prey like zebras or gazelles, other animals may arrive unexpectedly and distract the lion so as to take away its prize meal. They hunt by stalkingLions typically hunt by stalking prey until it comes close enough for an attack. As they don’t possess enough energy for long pursuits, lions rely on stalking and short bursts of speed in order to bring down prey. Their long tail serves as communication during group hunts. Video footage of a young girl kissing a lion at a zoo has gone viral, yet it’s important to remember that even friendly-appearing wild animals should not be approached directly. Lions live complex social lives composed of groups called prides. Each pride comprises two to twenty related females and their offspring, one male, and sometimes coalitions with other males to take over territory or prevent competing males from taking control over the population. Pride members may kill cubs of other prides to maintain dominance. They swimWhile lions don’t tend to like water much, they do possess an ability to swim. Lions using shallow waters for hunting prey may use them sneak up before pouncing and using swimming as travel mode to reach their destinations faster. Lions in warmer climates typically seek refuge in bodies of water such as rivers in order to cool themselves off more effectively. However, lions do not traditionally swim as a form of socializing. Instead, they engage in behaviors similar to grooming among primates – such as licking each other. Furthermore, rubbing their heads against one another seems like another form of communication and may serve the same function as nuzzling in humans. Lions may not be as adept swimmers as tigers, yet they still reach speeds up to 11 mph and travel great distances; these traits make lions considered faster than humans. They are social animalsLions are social animals that tend to form groups called prides that consist of related females and their offspring along with one or more resident males. Females typically remain with their mother’s pride while males leave to form coalitions in order to conquer new territories. Researchers discovered that, despite an apparent hierarchy, lions interact in ways which seem affectionate – head rubbing and licking are among them – similar to allogrooming among primates, helping establish, maintain, and strengthen relationships among them. African lion tamer Moataz Marwan recently went viral after posting a viral video featuring him stroking and kissing a large lion, which has amassed over 468,700 views on TikTok and won praise from animal rights supporters and animal lovers. Unfortunately, however, the footage may put its subject more vulnerable to attacks by rival males or even trophy hunters who could kill it outright. They are dangerousLions can be very dangerous animals and should never be approached directly. If a lion approaches, try clapping your hands, shouting loudly, waving your arms wildly and waving your arms back and forth to make yourself appear bigger and dissuade it from charging at you. If driving, keep moving so as to evade being attacked by one. The roar is used to communicate within prides, signal strength, and dissuade potential rivals. It can reach up to 114 decibels and be heard up to five miles away; the darker its mane indicates an older and stronger individual lion. Lions groom each other to maintain and strengthen social bonds, grooming each other by licking each other’s heads and necks; males typically dominate this practice. When grooming occurs this way, this behavior may also include more obvious signals, such as growling or snarling from both parties involved.[…]
- How to Go For a Kiss
An incredible kiss not only provides physical and emotional satisfaction, it can also trigger physiological processes which increase immunity and contribute to keeping our bodies looking their best. If your date indicates they’re ready for a kiss, feel free to initiate one – but remember that their comfort level must always come first and respect any boundaries set. 1. Look into her eyes.Eye contact is key in setting the scene for a great kiss, displaying both confidence and an intention of going for what one wants. If a woman looks directly into your eyes and keeps licking or looking down at her lips, this could be a telltale sign she wants you to kiss her. She could be signaling to you her attraction to your dynamic and desire for sexual submission from both of you. Make sure your sense of smell plays an active part when leaning in for a kiss, too. A light lotion or hint of perfume are great ways to leave an inviting and long-lasting scent on her skin; and ensure your breath smells fresh – bad breath can be highly off-putting! 2. Move in.Some people are very open to kissing almost immediately upon meeting a new person (think bar/club). If this is what works for you, make the move immediately but ensure it takes place in an appropriate venue. An effective way to segue into locking lips is through gentle teasing, such as gently stroking her cheek or forehead – this shows interest without appearing creepy or needy. If it feels right, try kissing her neck or earlobe too – this sensual move is both romantic and intimate, making a great show-stopper move during a make-out session! Additionally, fresh breath helps the situation so bringing along mints can also come in handy! 3. Lean in.Leaning in for a kiss on your first date can be tricky. To prevent bumping heads or tripping over things, lean in towards your partner at eye level – which could require lowering your chair or sitting on the floor, depending on her height – or go up onto tiptoes if she’s taller. Flirting can be an excellent way to ease into leaning in, but physical cues can also help. Touching them on the knee or shoulder, placing one hand behind their head or holding their back can all increase intimacy and make them more likely to let you kiss them. You could also offer some well-timed compliments but don’t go too fast or they might become overwhelmed. 4. Be vulnerable.Kissing is an intimate act and can help deepen your relationship. However, it’s essential to respect her boundaries and understand when she may not yet be ready to move forward with things. An affectionate forehead kiss from parents and grandparents to their children conveys care, affection, and protectiveness while at the same time can be romantic between two people. A neck kiss may feel like an innocent gesture or it could turn sensual during make-out sessions with your partner. And don’t forget the “butterfly kiss.” To create the illusion that they are being kissed by butterflies, flutter your lips against their eyes or face in order to give an effect similar to being caressed by butterflies – making her feel both comfortable and loved in an adorable flirting move! 5. Smell her breath.An unpleasant-smelling mouth is one of the biggest kissing turnoffs, so if you want a trip to Makeout Town, keep your breath fresh! Avoid overbrushing your lips or applying too much lip gloss; she wants to feel your soft lips against hers. Also, when on public transportation or other environments which do not permit full-on kisses (for example when riding in cars or other similar contexts) be respectful of her response (for instance if she says no or does not wish to make out immediately). With these tips hopefully in hand you’ll build up to an unforgettable kissing moment; otherwise there are always other ways of showing love! Happy Kissing![…]
