I was 31. Tilt your head. Relax. Don't freak out if you get a little of his saliva mixed with your own, gal. Also, don't be weirded out if his lips are the same temperature as your own. The chemistry of his mouth and saliva is still gender-wired and very different from your own, even if it tastes similar since it's still saliva.
For first-times, don't feel you have to go crazy with your tongue. Save that for later. Relaxing is important, so you aren't tempted to bite. He'll need the same. The act can also trigger your brain to send dopamine rushing to your genitals, so if things get too hot, back away.
Learning to restrain yourself then and there is critical, or else you'll spend a lifetime making excuses and rationalizations for all the times you let it go too far, and attacking others who don't subscribe to the same excuses and rationalizations.
There is a much, much better way to live life than that. And you are exactly the right age to choose a different path than your peers. Instead of being another lost soul doing what she wants, consequences be damned, you can do what you should, and rise above it all.
But I digress. The kiss will seem weird and insignificant at first - until your hypothalamus kicks into overdrive. In seconds, what seemed like nothing will seem like everything. Don't let that lead you astray.
i was almost 19. i don't have much advice except just lose yourself in the moment. don't overthink, just feel. i remember when he first kissed me, my mind just left me haha, and i was just very passionate.
im glad i had it late. it made me appreciate it more.
I had it at 21, I think. My advice: do it the way you want to do it, not caring about satisfying society's standards of what a "good kiss" is like. It's OK if you want to please the person you're kissing, but it's a waste of time to just want to do it "right", as if there were a right way of kissing.
First Real make out session was at age 15, I think it went on for 45 mins and escalated... anyway id just make sure your breathe is tasty and your lips are soft, if the guy has more experience I'd follow his lead, just remeber not to do anything that makes your uncomfortable.
At 16. I'd say just go with the flow and it'll happen the way it should. Kissing is very natural, and it feels intimidating at first but it's really fun once you and your partner get used to each other's style. Just make sure you have fresh breath and don't use too much saliva, or even too much tongue (as in, don't stick your tongue down their throat) during your first kiss.
