    Kissing: The Hot Love Habit That Makes You Both Happier

    We challenged five women to just kiss more. The results?

    EXPERIMENT No.5 continued...

    Day 1 Saturday

    I move in to kiss him, and before I can pucker up, he says, "What are you doing?" I say, "Kissing you." "Why, where are you going?" he asks. Grrrr.

    Day 2 Sunday

    He wakes up and I plant a wet one on him. Later, I throw my arms around him and give him another kiss. He pauses, then says, "Hey, why don't you marinate the steaks and I'll make 'em for dinner?" He's offering to cook? Hmm... that's new.

    Day 3 Monday

    After work, I drape myself over his lap and pull his face in close. He kisses me twice in return!

    Day 4 Tuesday

    Two "I'm heading to work" kisses this morning, and I swear I notice a little pep in his step. I come home and dinner is on the stove. What. In. The. World? Later he gives me a foot rub on the couch. We head to bed and, um, "catch up" with each other.

    Day 5 Wednesday

    He gives me a list of chores and has them split up between us. His list is twice as long as mine! That night when I'm making dinner, he comes and gives me a long kiss. For awhile, we've only been kissing during foreplay. Peck, peck, off with the clothes! To kiss and not immediately disrobe? That's passion.

    Day 6 Thursday

    We watch a movie and make out on the couch. I Iove how young and silly it makes me feel.

    Day 7 Friday

    We're off on a weekend trip. As soon as we get to the hotel and put the kids to bed, I tell him about the experiment. "I always like kissing you," he says when I ask if he enjoyed it. "You don't like kissing me. You're always too busy. You shoo me away." I try to protest, but I know he's right.

    Two weeks later

    We've kissed more in the last two weeks than we have in the past two months. I've been less stressed, and he's still doing more around the house. And our sex life? It's always been good, but now it's electric. We both want it more. Hooray for coordinated libidos!
