A Good Addition to the Basics
on December 17, 2010
"Seal It With a Kiss" is a book by Violet Blue and published by Cleis Press. The book is miniature in size at seven inches tall and five inches wide. It has a pretty discreet cover that can be taken out in public. The book is 131 pages and broken into nine different chapters. The book takes about a half an hour to an hour to read straight through; it's not a long read.
The book is definitely intended for heterosexual females. It's written in an "I'm your best friend" type of language, so it's nice and laid-back. It seem to be written towards heterosexual women in their twenties who are currently playing the dating field. Most of the tips don't seem to be focused towards those in relationships, but it isn't hard to modify the slight language nuances to apply to your situation. Males or homosexuals could also easily apply the techniques given in this book.
This book isn't chock full of amazingly unique ideas, but it definitely has its fair share of quite a few novel concepts. Some of the information is stuff I feel like I've read before online and in Cosmo/women's magazines, but some of the information is actually very informative. I definitely learned some good stuff by reading this book.
The book covers a nice variety of topics. It includes things like specific kissing techniques, types of good and bad kisses, how to turn a bad kisser into a good kisser, what to do about hickeys and stubble-rash, party games to play with group kissing or just couple kissing, "advanced" techniques like flavored lip gloss and how to share your food/beverage during a kiss, and how to make your lips appear more kissable. It also talks about more "mental" aspects like how to accentuate the teasing before a kissing, how to form a connection during your kiss, and how to create suspense.
Overall, Violet Blue has made a pretty detailed book that, while not all novel (after all, how many different ways can you kiss?), still includes a very big chunk of new information that will turn you into a better kisser.
