The Phenomenon Called A KISS

The Phenomenon Called A KISS

With Valentines Day around the corner I thought it might be fun to ponder some on the phenomenon known as KISSING.  My first thought was that for something that can often be very pleasant the act itself has some interesting alias, for example lip locking, saliva swapping, tonsil hockey, tonsil tennis, tongue tango and suck facing. The list goes on and on but this seems like a good place to start.

For sake of argument lets begin by considering that in most cultures the KISS is thought of as a sign of affection.  Depending on the type of affection you want to show another, the KISS maybe delivered in many different forms.  The lips are normally used to deliver this sentiment, but not always.  Occasionally the nose or eyelashes maybe used as in an Eskimo or Butterfly KISS. These types of KISSES might be used between parents, children or lovers during light playful moments.  These KISSES can be emotionally fun and as fulfilling as the lip KISS.

Other KISSES might include a light lip on lip KISS that between two lovers can be tender and sweet.  Or it could be used as a quick acknowledgement or good-bye to family or friend. A lip KISS to the check paired with a hug could be a warm welcome or a meaningful farewell to an old friend.   A good old fashion French KISS can be physically and emotionally engulfing.  It can evoke feelings of lust and earning.  It often leads to a deeper sexual encounter which can be endearing and bring a feeling of contentment to ones life.

There are many other types of KISSES for example the Vampire KISS.  This KISS includes using your lips and teeth rather than the usual dominate tongue.  This KISS and the next one usually leave a mark or bruise on your partner so I’d suggest getting permission before attempting either.  The Hickey KISS has been around forever.  It can be sensual if done in the right way but can be painful and cause resentment in your partner if not delivered skillfully.   Having said that, NEVER fear your lack of experience in the art of KISSING.  You can find detailed directions on all aspects of the act on the Internet.  I have to share at least one description because I find them so entertaining to read.

How to Give Someone a Hickey
Part your lips slightly, and place them on the neck. Press your lips into the skin so that you can make a good seal, without any place for the air to escape. Try to keep your mouth soft and inviting as you do this, instead of going into a hard pucker.
Suck the skin. The key here is to suck hard enough to break the capillaries just beneath the skin, but not so hard that you cause your partner too much pain. Remember:  Keep your teeth out of the way. You don't want them digging painfully into your partner's skin.
Suck for 20 to 30 seconds to make a mark.
Break up the sucking. If 30 solid seconds of hickey-making strikes you as too weird, try 10 seconds, some kissing, then another 10 seconds in the same spot, and so on.
Control the amount of spit in your mouth. You don't want to be leaving a creeping drip of slobber on your partner's neck as you give a hickey, so try to swallow back any excess.
End it smoothly. When you're done sucking, try laying a few gentle kisses on the area, which probably feels more sensitive now. Resume making out as usual.

Now don’t you feel better?  Not only do you know how to create the perfect hickey, you have also had your first lesson in hickey etiquette.   NOTE to self… don’t drool on you partners neck.

At the beginning of this writing we agreed that KISSING is usually used as a sign of affection, but since we have contemplated that theory I feel it is only fair that we mention that KISSING isn’t always followed by love and happy ever-afters.

Sometimes, the KISS is used as a prelude to a sexual encounter even when there is no emotional attachment. I know you find that hard to believe.  But a sensual or sexual KISS can be very physically stimulating.  Maybe because the lips have the thinnest layer of skin on the body and along with the tongue, are packed with nerve endings. Who knows?  But even if a hearty, lustful mating follows this rousing KISS don’t take for granted that you and your partner will be together forever.  He/she may be out just for personal sexual gratification and have no intentions of having a long-term relationship. 

This path of thought leads us to a darker more sinister type of KISS.  The KISS OF BETRAYAL or sometimes called the KISS of Judas.  When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane after the Last Supper one of his hand picked disciples, Judas Iscariot, used the KISS to identify Christ to the soldiers. His act of using the KISS in his betrayal was even baffling to our Lord. In Luke Jesus is quoted as asking, "Judas, are you betraying the son of man with a kiss?"   

As you can see the KISS is truly an amazing phenomenon.  There are many different meanings of a KISS and just as many ways to deliver them.  

The information on the net is endless.  There are numerous KISSING Quizzes http://people.howstuffworks.com/kissing-quiz.htm


 You can find descriptions and directions on any type of KISS you can imagine.  But before I close this blog I want to leave you with one final definition of a KISS.

Someone who does anything to get their boss/co-worker/asshole friends to like them.  Also someone who should be punched in the jaw.

 Just for fun sign in and share your thoughts and/or experiences on the topic... I'd love to hear them.

There are so many more factors to consider in mass murders than just guns it’s unfair and unrealistic to focus on the one issue. Mass slayings are not new to the US or the World and they are not isolated to firearms.  If a person intends to do evil, he/she will find the means to do it.  No amount of laws will stop it.


The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, on May 18, 1927, which killed 38 elementary school children, two teachers, and four other adults; at least 58 people were injured. The perpetrator first killed his wife, and committed suicide with his last explosion. Most of the victims were children in the second to sixth grades (7–14 years of age[1]) attending the Bath Consolidated School. Their deaths constitute the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history.


The Cologne school massacre occurred in a Catholic elementary school located at Volkhovener Weg 209 in the suburb of Volkhoven in Cologne, Germany on June 11, 1964. Walter Seifert, born on June 11, 1922, killed eight students and two teachers, Seifert took a self-made flamethrower, lance and mace and entered the schoolyard. After blocking off the main gate with a wooden wedge, he proceeded to kill eight students and two teachers and injure twenty-two others, mostly students. He smashed in the windows of the buildings and pointed his flamethrower in the classrooms, setting the classroom on fire, killing nine people. He was then confronted by a teacher, Ursula Kuhr, 24, whom he stabbed with the lance.


The Osaka School Massacre took place on June 8, 2001, at Ikeda Elementary School, an elite primary school affiliated with Osaka Kyoiku University in Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
At 10:15 that morning, 37-year-old former janitor Mamoru Takuma entered the school armed with a kitchen knife and began stabbing numerous school children and teachers. He killed eight children, mostly between the ages of seven and eight, and seriously wounded thirteen other children and two teachers.[2]

The government is not totally to blame for their knee –jerk reactions when responding to tragedies… We citizens allow the government to continually pile law upon law on our heads telling us it is for our own good and safety and we swallow it as if we are little children taking medicine from our parent when we are sick and they say it will make us feel better.  
We do not need the government to spoon feed us medicine… we need to grow up and follow these ten rules for living…. And maybe if we can do that we stand a chance for the future:

Exodus 20:1-17
1 And God spoke all these words, saying,

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house; thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

Dear Drug Dealer, have you paid your taxes?

After 20 years in law enforcement today was the first time I had heard of the 1992 Controlled Substance Excise Tax.... It can be found in IC 6-7-3 (1-20) it is administered by the treasurer of the state.

In essence the law says that all law conscience drug-dealers are responsible to pay taxes on their illegal drugs...however said drug dealer should be relieved to know that they may not be required to provide information on their supplier nor can their confidential information be used to initiate an investigation into their illegal activities

Geezzzz what will they think of next? I'm curious to know how many drug-dealers have paid this tax, what about you?
