"I am in High School and I’m dating someone which is pretty cool and all, but we are having some trouble finding a place to make out. So where is the place that all the cool teenagers go to make out?"

- Question submitted by Anonymous

Dannielle Says:

Every time we have a question about sneak-kissing, Kristin is like THERE’S ALWAYS A WAY… So I assume she’ll regale you with a very comprehensive bulleted list and/or interactive map.

HOWEVER SINCE THE FLOOR IS MINE FOR THE MOMENT… I think behind buildings is the way to go. You’re not grossing anyone out bye making out in public, if no one’s around you can totally put hands up shirts, and when you’re 60 you’ll be able to say ‘BACK IN MY DAY WE MADE OUT BEHIND BUILDINGS’ … because by then everyone will have the ability to be invisible and/or there will be make out pods that float in the air #thefuture

Kristin Says:

I love that our job is to give advice and that today’s theme is “make out behind buildings.” Really gives a sense of credibility to our work here… you know?

BUT SERIOUSLY.

I know that it is no longer 1950 and you are probably not trying to make out with Sandra Dee, but like… parked cars, you guys. Cars, cars, cars and if someone’s parents have a minivan?! Bonus. Prize. Cars are designed to be movable make-out machines for people without their own apartments. My first girlfriend and I made out all the time in her mom’s minivan… we’d park it by this really nice fountain that changed color when we were feeling really romantic. It’s fine.

I don’t know if that’s cool or whatever, but it’s practical and will allow you to mash mouths and stuff which seems cool to me.

Alternative (and in some instances, less practical) options can include:

1. Movie Theaters. No one said you have to watch the movie. Pick the least popular movie at the least popular time and you have the potential to get an empty theater. Tada.

2. The Boiler Room. I don’t know about your high school, but Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano had a GREAT time making out in the boiler room after school. Sure, she missed a few geometry reviews… but like, she did fine and got to make-out with the cutest boy this side of anywhere.

3. The Park. This is an alternative option to “behind buildings,” if you are more into that whole nature over grit deal. Both have their perks, so as they say, ‘you do you.’ You can pack a lunch that you have no intention of eating, set up behind some trees, and do your thing. Just please don’t ever say “do your thing” out loud.

4. Literally, anywhere. It’s like… obviously not ANYWHERE, but there are many options to steal a good make-out if you are just aware of your surroundings. Maybe you are shopping and you share a dressing room… maybe you go ice skating and there’s an empty row in the locker room… maybe you go to get ice cream cones and you sneak between the buildings…

THE WORLD IS YOUR PROVERBIAL OYSTER.
MY MAKE-OUT BLESSINGS TO YOU BOTH.

"okay so I was making out with a friend like two hours ago and it was fun but he said I was too toothy and not very good at kissing and then he honked my boob?!?? How do I deal with digs about my kissing ability while being boob-honked please help."

- Question submitted by Anonymous

Dannielle Says:

If it were me 6 years ago, I’d be embarrassed and I would literally never talk to that friend again.

If it were me now, I’d be like “you have to make out with me again so I can learn to not be toothy and you can’t touch my boobs til you make me a better kisser.” And I’d get a second opinion on the toothyness. Maybe your teeth just don’t go well together… It takes two to tango, you know?

Also, you can trade make out tips and say “Honking is what you do to a clown’s nose, not a boob”

Kristin Says:

HERE IS THE THING ABOUT KISSING. It is a combination of two heads and two mouths (unless you are kissing multiple people at once or an alien with many mouths but those are other discussions for other days). Sometimes it doesn’t quite go as planned. There have been times when I’ve kissed a person that I’d been dating for years and we just weren’t on the same mouth-page and BLAM, we banged teeth or drooled on each other.

… We never drooled on each other but saying that made me laugh. You get my point.

If your friend was like, “UGH YOU ARE SO BAD AT THIS” {HONK}, then your friend needs to calm down and take a deep breath. If that is the case, I’d say something like, “Well, how about this. You help me learn how to properly kiss your mouth and I will help you learn how to properly touch a boob, and we agree to be nice to each other because being jerks is for DUMMIES.”

If your friend was nice about it but you just feel embarrassed, I would say a similar thing, but also explain that it would rule for you to be sensitive to the other person’s feelings since makin’ out can sometimes be a vulnerable situation.

No one is perfect at making out with all people. NO ONE. NOT EVEN SHANE OR ZORRO OR THE PRESIDENT.

"My girlfriend uses way too much tongue when we’re making out. Like, I can’t breathe and also our teeth clash so much it hurts sometimes. What the fuck should I do?! This isn’t comfortable, I’m just focusing on trying to breathe and not losing my teeth."

Dannielle Says:

omg. this is the worst. One time I dated a bad kisser and I didn’t say anything and we just broke up and i was like ‘THANK GOD’ in my head bc it was gross. So… don’t stand around and not do anything bc then you’ll be like me and i’m a dummy.

If I were you and I had the wherewithal to ask what to do SLASH take some sort of action, I would say ‘can we slow down a little bit’ and when she was like ‘what’ I’d be like ‘i just mean, we’re going for this full force, and i’d prefer a slower more passionate kiss, it would feel more lovey dovey i think.’

That way, you are 100% blaming it on yourself and the things you like, as opposed to say ‘you suck try again’ … right?  You’ll get all the credit when your make outs are better and you won’t make her feel like an idiot.

Kristin Says:

Thinking about Dannielle saying, “I’d prefer a slower more passionate kiss,” made me laugh for like twelve minutes.

That said, I think this is a situation that is easily remedied. I know that we are all much more vulnerable during makeout time, but I don’t think this means we have to walk on eggshells when we talk about what we like and what we don’t like. Just bc your boo whacks her tongue around doesn’t mean that SHE is the one that is a bad kisser – it just means your kissing styles ain’t aligned. She might have come out of a relationship where her ex-boo was like, “NOTHING TURNS ME ON MORE THAT OUR TEETH CRASHING TOGETHER” … or something.

MY POINT IS: All you have to do is say, ‘Hey I love kissing you but I’ve never been too tongue mashing. I know people like that and do that, but it just ain’t me. I hope you don’t think that’s weird! Can we have a kissing session where we practice and figure out what the other person likes?”

Sexi time isn’t always stars and rainbows – sometimes it takes a hot second to learn the other person. So, don’t be scared to talk! Talking about sexi means better sexi and better sexi is great. #lifelessons
