If you've ever had a really great kiss that makes you feel like your knees might give out beneath you, you know that some kisses can be totally memorable. Knowing how to kiss your boyfriend just the right way helps make sure he'll be thinking about that moment (and you) for hours (and maybe even years) to come.

There are so many ways to kiss your boyfriend that can add some extra spice to your relationship. Whether you give his ear a nibble or try butterfly kisses, these kissing techniques are easy and natural.

1. Change It Up When You Kiss Your Boyfriend

The first rule of great kissing is to mix it up a little bit. Don't stick with your standard lip-lock. Change techniques and keep him guessing and totally in the moment. There are many ways to kiss a guy and scenarios where kissing can add more excitement to your relationship. We like to start by switching the spot we're kissing him every few minutes.

2. Focus on the Fingers

This might sound weird, but one of the most sensitive spots on your body is your fingers. Take a short break from kissing his mouth and try kissing his fingers instead. There are tons of nerve endings here and he'll almost definitely respond positively.

3. Let Him Know You're All Ears

Kissing or licking the earlobes is pleasurable for most guys. Do it gently because ears can be sensitive, but that's also a good reason to pay them plenty of attention.

You can also whisper or breathe softly in your boyfriend's ear while kissing.

4. Experiment With Different Techniques

Instead of just pressing your lips together to kiss, try sucking or gently biting your boyfriend's lips. Try starting with the lower lip. You don't need to do this for more than a few seconds at a time, but it will change up the routine and make sure he's paying attention.

5. Less Can Be More

French kissing can be really intimate, but it's fun to mix in some closed-mouth kissing too. In the middle of a kissing session, you can pull back and give your boyfriend some pecks on the lips. 

6. Kiss Your Boyfriend's Closed Eyes

With your boyfriend's eyes closed, try very gently licking or kissing his eyelid. This is a super romantic way to show him how sweet you think he is.

7. Give Him Some Butterfly Kisses

Speaking of eyes, you aren't limited to kissing with your mouth. You can also give him a butterfly kiss. This term refers to fluttering your eyelashes over your boyfriend's skin to kiss him. It's sweet and intimate.

Quick Tip

There are lots of ways to kiss without using your lips. Try gently rubbing your noses together too.

8. Kiss With an Ice Cube or Sweets

Try passing an ice cube or a piece of candy back and forth as you kiss together. You can also try sweet food items that melt in your mouth, such as chocolate or a marshmallow. It's all about sharing the taste and temperature as you share the sensation.

9. Try New Places to Kiss 

The erogenous zones are areas of the body that respond more to kissing due to the high number of nerve endings. These are a few awesome ones to add to your kissing:

  • Neck: His neck may be super sensitive, so kissing there can be a turn-on.
  • Stomach: The navel area is also a turn-on when kissed, especially the belly button.
  • Arms: Gentle kisses near the armpits, or in the crook of the arm can be a turn-on.
Quick Tip

Everyone has the same erogenous zones, although they might like having some spots touched more than others. When you kiss your boyfriend this way, you're also showing him creative places to kiss you. One caution is that some guys will find these areas to be too sensitive or ticklish, so always watch your boyfriend's response for cues that he likes how you are kissing him.

10. Surprise Him With Kisses

There are lots of sensual ways to kiss your boyfriend, but one of our favorites is the surprise kiss. Grab your boyfriend and kiss him passionately when he is least expecting it, such as when you're stopped at a red light or when he is leaving for school or work.

11. Kiss in the Rain (or Water)

If you're caught in a rainstorm or he's walking you to your front door and it's pouring, toss away the umbrella and try kissing your boyfriend in the rain. The rain running down your faces adds to an amazing sensation. And if you don't want to wait for the next downpour, kiss him the next time you're swimming in a lake or pool.

12. Play a Kissing Communication Game

Most couples enjoy the intimacy and connection that comes with kissing. As an intimate activity, kissing is a nonverbal form of communication and a great way to have fun with your boyfriend. You can also make a game of it and play a game to communicate while you kiss. Ask each other questions and use one kiss for a yes answer and two kisses for a no answer.

Let Your Kisses Happen Naturally

Kissing is an activity that evolves for most couples. From that awkward first kiss with your boyfriend to knowing what you like together, there are many different kinds of kissing, including first kisses, closed-mouth kissing, and French kissing. It's fun to experiment and change things up during your kissing sessions. With a little practice and creativity, you'll be an unforgettable kisser.
