Four Kisses You Must Master

We know what you're thinking. A kiss? Big whoop. You've had your mouth-to-mouth MO nailed since primary school. But what you might not have realised is that by customising your lip-locking to the occasion, you can actually take your kissing up a notch. 'Even the best kissers can add bewildering power,' explains Shelley Hess, author of Pucker Power: Great Kissers Make Great Lovers (iUniverse). 'The secret is knowing what kind of kiss the situation calls for and then making your moves accordingly.' Here are four kisses and accompanying lip tricks that'll have him spellbound from the moment you meet to 'See ya'… and every second in-between.

The quick 'Hi, honey' peck is no way to re-bond with your guy, whether you've been missing him since your morning croissant or last Saturday night. Set the tone for your time together with a kiss that makes him think, 'Oh, you're happy to see me'.

'Greet your guy with enthusiasm and he'll immediately feel loved and appreciated,' explains Dr Linda Olson, host of the show America's Love Doctor. 'A high-energy hello smooch is the ultimate way to communicate that excitement and foreshadow the fun to come.' Plus, when he kisses you back with the same degree of desire, you'll feel that love rush, too.

The hot hello actually starts long before your lips meet. Let's set the scene: You see your guy. Maybe he's working his way across the bar; maybe he's standing on your doorstep. You lock eyes, flash him a smile, and slowly begin your approach, maintaining eye contact the whole way. When he's in close range, utter a husky, 'Hey there, gorgeous' and press your body up against his. This is key for creating intimacy: You don't want to strike the disastrous A-frame pose (think lips together, hips miles apart) according to William Cane, kissing coach and author of The Art Of Kissing (St. Martin's Griffin).

Okay, bodies meshed? Now it's time to pucker up, baby. Wrap your hand around the nape of his neck and pull his face gently toward yours. When your mouths finally meet, maintain a strong but closed-lip seal for up to 10 sultry seconds. Tip: Keep your tongue reigned in; this kiss should shoot straight from the lip. There'll be plenty of time for tongue twisting at the end of the night - keep him in anticipation of what's to come as you pull away.
