Kissing: A Field Guide

by Violet Blue Author

Starts with a quiz to find your kissing style—are you a Sweet Lips, Power Puss, Hot Lips, or Pure, Delicious Poison?—and continues to offer practical advice for all you kissing types out there about topics like how to make a kiss happen in the first place, techniques for what to do with your lips, tongue, and the rest of your body in various kissing scenarios, some basic rules about consent, some considerations about various types of kissing, and a bunch of kissing games. Some light uses of language assuming the reader's a woman and wants to kiss men, but gender and orientation are otherwise de-emphasized, and really anyone who wants to increase the amount of quality kissing in their life can benefit from this book without too much eye-rolling.
