GQ's Sophie Benoit says "Kissing is a farce," she writes. "The idea that pressing your mouths together and doing some French-attributed tongue-licking is the peak of romance is so misguided. I understand that a lot of people love it, but no sex act is exciting for everyone...Every kiss that I’ve had has felt exactly like when I was trying to learn stick shift: too much to coordinate at once, with underwhelming results...Neck kissing is nice. So is body kissing, while you’re making your way to better stuff. But it’s time to take some pressure off the fraught mouth-to-mouth stuff. Maybe a nice handshake at the altar."
