This is another post written by one of our love gurus, Sabatino! It has to do with one of MY favorite activities- making out!
The stuff trashy romance novels are made of.
Or at least usually how they start and end, with a lot of crazy stuff in between.
You’re at a party. You catch eyes with a girl from across the room and there’s instant attraction. You saunter over and introduce yourself in your best Barry White voice. “Good evening, I’m Sabatino; I couldn’t help but notice you from across the room”. A conversation erupts and you find out she loves fine wine just as much as you do, and although she’s Irish, she kind of looks Italian, so you’re cool with that. You spend the rest of the night exchanging witty banter and as the party begins winding down, you find yourselves passionately engaged in a steamy make-out session in the garden- and the kitchen- and again in the driveway- and in your car behind Walmart, even though you know it’s not classy but, damn it, you just need a quiet and dark corner.
But I digress. Remember that feeling when everything was new and you couldn’t wait to tear each other’s clothes off? Why is it that most relationships fall out of this “honeymoon stage” after a short period of time? I truly believe making out saves relationships. Yeah I know there are going to be a lot of nay-sayers about this one, but think about it! Making out is the cornerstone of a sexually healthy and bonded relationship! It’s the gateway to a more physically gratifying partnership. It’s a reminder that as we get older, our love stays young and strong. It can transcend acceptance and commitment!
Today I issue you this challenge. Find someone to make out with. It could be a spouse, a significant other, good friend, love interest, or anyone else you’ve been dying to lock lips with. If you’re married, grab your husband or wife and look them in the eyes. Tell them sincerely that you love them and go in for the kill. It will be fun! You may be a bit rusty if you haven’t made out in a while, but it’s like riding a bike- you’ll pick it up again. I strongly urge those of you who are in relationships to set aside ten minutes each week to spend alone time with your partner- for heaven’s sake you need to remind each other that you’re still in love!
If that’s not enough for you, here are some basic health benefits to smooching:
1) It can help prevent tooth decay.
2) It’s a stress reliever
3) Kissing burns calories.
4) It can boost your immunity.
Plus, you’ll make every other couple around you jealous. In my opinion, making out is vital to a healthy relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together- and with so much passion flying around the room, expect to see changes in your partner that you haven’t seen since the first time you met.
Hi, I’m Sabatino. Who wants in on this?
