“It’s just a kiss.” How many times have those words been uttered? To, Ingrid Bergman, a Swedish actress in the mid 1900’s, “A kiss is a secret told to the mouth instead of the ear; kisses are the messengers of love and tenderness”.
What’s within a kiss that creates so many feelings? Why is it more than, “just a kiss”? The tissue on the lips is the same tissue that comprises the genitalia and the nipples. These three areas are interconnected to each other. When the lips are kissed it heats up the body and sends signals throughout it heating up the erogenous zones. The heating up of the erogenous zones creates a desire to allow the body to experience what the lips are feeling.
Men’s Health Magazine did a survey for both men and women. In this survey, they asked the participant to rank 10 areas on their body on a scale of 1-10 that were most arousing. Notice on the survey, a kiss for both male and female ranked number two on the survey, being outranked by the their genitalia which came in as number one. The prelude of a kiss it what begins, in most cases, a sensory inflation within the body. It is that particular tissue of the skin that creates the impulses to desire more. It is the kiss that sustains the passion during sex and it is the kiss that concludes the act.
A kiss is 100 times more sensitive than your fingertips.
A kiss is 100 times more sensitive than your fingertips. There is a reason for that. A kiss is to be savored, to be reserved, to be longed for from someone deserving of its soft touch. God was smart when he created the different skin cells for each area of the body. It is this masterful design that creates yearning for one another. The touch of a kiss is the peacemaker of relationships.
We are our own harshest critic. Critiquing ourselves with how we look seems to becoming more and more prevalent with social media sites increasing in numbers. We tend to compare ourselves with other’s posts. Filters have deceived our eyes with the reality that truly exists within each post. I know I am guilty of looking at another female’s picture wishing I could look so flawless like them. Comparing ourselves to others will always exist. We will always want a better physique, better skin, better hair, better makeup.
Human nature is competitive. That innate desire to be better revolves around Darwin’s natural selection theory, that we choose to select things for ourselves based off of our own survival. Appearance is one of the basic components to natural selection. It only makes sense that we want to appear a certain way to others and filters, angles, lighting tend to aid us in our “flawless” appearance.
I chose the year of 2018 to be the year of love. When you love yourself, you are able to accept more of who you are. When you love yourself, you are able to love who you are without makeup, without the perfect body, without the perfect hair. When you love yourself, you allow yourself to live more freely, creating more smiles within your day. When you love yourself, you are able to share your love with others creating healthy and happy relationships.
This new year, year 2018, be that spiritual being full of love and see the anew joy it brings you. Happy you, happy skin, happy life. Love.
“Something seems different about you…you’re glowing.”
Has someone ever said that to you? I know I’ve heard it a few times before and it was always after spending time with my man. Happy in love.
When you are happy and in a healthy relationship, your skin will show it. Your body excretes hormones that give your body a “feel good” sensation. Your breathing is normal and your endorphin levels are high. When your spirit and mind are healthy your body and skin receive positive output.
Of course every relationship will have its ups and downs but the one with the most ups with love, appreciation, kindness and selflessness, will create a happy home for your body, skin and spirit to reside.
