It’s true that just a few seconds of kissing is enough to send shivers down your spine, but if you want that truly spine tingling experience, making out is where it’s at.
That’s because when it comes to kissing, nothing compares to the intensity, sexuality, and intimacy of a really hot make out session (1).
There are a few things you need to remember if you want to have a good make out, but lucky for you, they’re easy and they’re all here even if you aren’t sure if you’re a good kisser or not and don’t really know what to do.
So here’s everything you need to know about making out to really turn up the heat and passion between you and your partner.

1. How To Start The Make Out
Another great way to build intimacy is to put your hand on his face, touch his leg, or put your forehead against his to get the connection between you growing.
Remember – you don’t need super intense eye contact here to get things started. A few seconds of eye contact should be enough for him to get the message.
Make sure to move slowly in the beginning, and also to change positions very slowly, so you don’t bump teeth with each other. Start by kissing each other’s lips, and then moving on to french kissing if you’re ready.
If you’re french kissing each other, your tongues are going to be in each other’s mouths, so try moving them slowly in whatever way feels good for you without getting messy (3).
However, I’m not saying that you should use your hands to grope your partner every chance you get. Instead, allow your hands to slowly explore his body – as long as he’s comfortable.
Keep your hands moving so that things don’t start to get boring. Great places to touch are his face, his waist, holding his hands, touching his chest, his neck, and the back of his head.
When things are going amazing, you can pull back for a brief second and look deeply into his eyes. This will make him want to kiss you even more badly – and will up the intensity when you dive back in.
Don’t do this all the time though, this is a move that works best in moderation.
If you want a break but you don’t want to stop, it’s totally fine to run to the bathroom or grab a glass of water.
2. Keeping The Make Out Hot
If you want to say something to him, you can break off the kiss and say something quietly to him, that’s totally fine. Just don’t ruin the mood by saying something awkward or off subject, like talking about work or something.
Fact is, there are going to be awkward moments you have while making out – and that’s totally fine! Every single person who’s made out with someone has experienced them.
All you have to do is not take it so seriously, and all of a sudden that horrible awkward thing because something you can both lightly laugh about.
You definitely want to still move slowly, remember, fast movement is the enemy of a good make out.
Try kissing them on the corner of their mouth, and then moving your way down his jawline and to his neck. It’ll send a shiver down his spine.
You can run your fingers through his hair on his scalp and then run them all the way down his neck to make him melt like a puddle.
Remember, the head and scalp has tons of nerve endings, so put them to good use!
This is a move that’s best used when you know the other person a little better and you’re ready to start experimenting. If he responds well, you can keep going, otherwise stick to the make out.
You can lean in and whisper something short and sexy into his ear, like “I’ve been waiting to kiss you all day,” or “You drive me crazy.” He’ll love it.
You never know when you’ll discover something that you both really like, and you don’t know for sure until you try it.
So when you get comfortable with him, try adding a couple new twists and tricks into each make out session to experiment. It’s not about trying 50 different things in one evening, it’s about adding something new or different each time.
3. Letting The Make Out Wind Down
You can either let them know you’re ready to move onto something more intense and R-rated, or you just need to take a break from kissing.
As always, you want to move slowly, not quickly. You’re looking to move away from him slowly, giving him one more passionate kiss, and then letting the kiss end. Remember, this doesn’t have to be abrupt, it can and should wind down slowly.
After you’re done making out, you should definitely tell him how much you enjoyed it (assuming you enjoyed it). You can give him a big hug, one more kiss, or a huge smile – all of those will make him feel really good.
Make sure he knows that you’re interested in having more make outs in the near future – like by telling him how you can’t wait to see him again or texting him to tell him how much fun you had later.
Remember, if you leave him feeling happy and excited when you leave, he’s going to want to do it again – and soon. Have fun with it!
