Kissing is your key to convincing any woman to get into bed with you, to love you, and to choose you as her partner. Why You Must Kiss The moment your lips meet hers, several decisions are made: will she go to your place? Will she see you again? Will she fall in love with you? To understand why, read on. Chemical reactions People really can go weak at the knees with a kiss—the chemical reaction in your body is intense, and it’s all because your body is preparing for sex. A simple kiss not only requires 20 muscles to coordinate but also the process sets off a chain of other reactions in your body: the hypothalamus in your brain activates neurons; the pituitary gland secretes hormones to target the ovaries and testes; and a release of dopamine, endorphins, and phenyl ethylamine is triggered, and attaches to pleasure receptors in the brain, giving you a feeling of giddy euphoria.
Touch her lips and look at them as you do so—this is incredibly sexy—then, as if you’re so turned on by looking at her luscious lips that you can’t help it, kiss her again. She’ll feel like you care, and are a gentleman, but also that you find her irresistible—an incredible turn-on. Timing and Locations Where and when you do it can change an average kiss into a phenomenal one. I’ve picked out some times and places that will have her weak at the knees with just a simple peck on the lips. In bad weather Films are to blame for this one.

She needs to know how you feel immediately; otherwise she’ll be hurt and that means it’ll be harder for her to open up and relax with you, let alone get turned on enough to make love to you later. Meeting your friends Public displays of affection can be disgusting or sweet.
