um yes, let’s make out

The stuff trashy romance novels are made of.


Or at least usually how they start and end, with a lot of crazy stuff in between.

You’re at a party. You catch eyes with a woman from across the room and there’s instant attraction.  You saunter over and introduce yourself in your best Barry White voice.  “Good evening, I’m Sabatino; I couldn’t help but notice you from across the room”.  A conversation erupts and you find out she loves fine wine just as much as you do, and although she’s Irish, she kind of looks Italian, so you’re cool with that.  You spend the rest of the night exchanging witty banter and as the party begins winding down, you find yourselves passionately engaged in a steamy make-out session in the garden- and the kitchen- and again in the driveway- and in your car behind Walmart, even though you know it’s not classy but, damn it, you just need a quiet and dark corner.

But I digress.  Remember that feeling when everything was new and you couldn’t wait to tear each other’s clothes off?  Why is it that most relationships fall out of this “honeymoon stage” after a short period of time?  I truly believe making out saves relationships.  Yeah I know there are going to be a lot of nay-sayers about this one, but think about it!  Making out is the cornerstone of a sexually healthy and bonded relationship!  It’s the gateway to a more physically gratifying partnership. It’s a reminder that as we get older, our love stays young and strong.  It can transcend acceptance and commitment!

Today I issue you this challenge.  Find someone to make out with.  It could be a spouse, a significant other, good friend, love interest, or anyone else you’ve been dying to lock lips with.  If you’re married, grab your husband or wife and look them in the eyes.  Tell them sincerely that you love them and go in for the kill. It will be fun!  You may be a bit rusty if you haven’t made out in a while, but it’s like riding a bike- you’ll pick it up again. I strongly urge those of you who are in relationships to set aside ten minutes each week to spend alone time with your partner- for heaven’s sake you need to remind each other that you’re still in love!

If that’s not enough for you, here are some basic health benefits to smooching:

1) It can help prevent tooth decay.

2) It’s a stress reliever

3) Kissing burns calories.

4) It can boost your immunity.

Plus, you’ll make every other couple around you jealous.  In my opinion, making out is vital to a healthy relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together- and with so much passion flying around the room, expect to see changes in your partner that you haven’t seen since the first time you met.

Hi, I’m Sabatino. Who wants in on this?

  1. “Making out” has now risen to the top things to do when I get the chance. #score

  2. It’d be a lot better if that’s all it was–a make-out session. Guys these days can’t seem to be satisfied with just that. I actually had a FWB tell me after I gave him a steamy teasing session that he was an adult and adults just do it so stop teasing him. Killed the mood right there.

    • That’s really unfortunate and I can completely understand how that would kill the mood. That’s one thing I’m trying to change here with my writing. I really feel romanticism and courtship are dying terms.

      When asking girls out I used to say “Would you care to grab a cup of hot choclate sometime?” – or something along those lines. If the girl refused the hot chocolate and said “I’d rather do drinks”, I would almost immediately be turned off. The point here was that I wanted someone who could hold a conversation while being isolated in a one-on-one situation without the liquid courage. If she couldn’t hold her own or even be willing to try, then I knew she wasn’t someone I should be persuing.

      Thanks for the great comment! I may actually write a future post about this- now you’ve got me thinking.

  3. It’s really a cool and helpful piece of info. I am happy that you simply shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That’s funny you should mention that courtship is a dying term. This is a bit of a sentence I just sent in an email to my boyfriend a couple of days ago: …’any chance at having a traditional courtship (yes, I use that term because old-fashioned romance is what makes up my heart)’. I also complained about the lack of romanticism in my email. I didn’t think people like us still existed! 🙂

    The last time I asked someone to go out for drinks, we ended up just getting water at the place we met at and spent all night talking. I don’t need alcohol to have a good time–I just need good company. I don’t even ask to go out for drinks anymore–now I just ask if they want to grab a coffee since there’s a Starbucks on like every street corner!
