A Ukrainian hair dresser
“No chapped lips, but not excessive chapstick either. It has to be a little bit assertive, or manly, but give me a solid 10 seconds before you try to add tongue.” - Julia, 42, Ukrainian hair dresser.
A first grader
“You touch lips.” - Axton, 7, first grader.
“I think it’s about good build-up and anticipation. If a guy surprise-shoves his tongue down your throat, that can be off-putting, but if it’s a first kiss and there is flirting and leaning in and you really want to be kissed... when they finally do it makes it exciting and hot. Also, a little give and a little take. I think if a guy just suctions to your mouth, it can be like a Dementor in Harry Potter. They have to take charge, but also give a second or two to let you kiss back.” - Samantha, 26, special ed teacher.
