How to kiss someone with braces on?
I have a friend, let’s call him Ashley, whose boyfriend wears braces and one day I and my other friend, Emma, were thinking, “Can Ashley kiss her boyfriend without shedding some blood?” I know it’s a pretty disrespectful question but that thought led me to research the topic “How to become a good kisser with braces”. Let me warn you that this post contains some pretty gross tips that you would normally not really want to hear. So continue reading this post only if you don’t throw up easily. Let’s begin.
You can watch a video attached below that my boyfriend made on the topic.
If you are not the video type like me, then continue reading!
Tip #1: Don’t rush into it
Try to hold your horse for at least two weeks before you attempt serious kissing. Your main focus initially should be to learn and practice the basic tasks with braces e.g. brushing your teeth, eating etc. This will help you get used to the metal in your mouth.
It does not mean that you cannot love your special someone in the meanwhile. There are plenty of other ways to show your affection such as cuddling, hugging, cooking or even kissing on the lips.
Tip #2: Lip kissing is the first step
It will be unwise to jump straight into french kissing your partner. As both of you might be new to this change, it is a possibility that either one of you will get hurt if you continue things the way they were before. Although, it largely depends on the type of braces you are wearing but still, its better to play it safe.
So, keep things simple and plain. After all, lip locking is a great way to be intimate too. I personally prefer to lock my lips with my boyrfriend even after achieving liberty from braces for almost 2 years now.
Tip #3: Time to turn it up
Okay so after spending a few days without getting into your partner’s mouth, its time to unleash the kiss beast. By now, you must be used to carrying out standard life chores and lip kissing him or her. You can bring your tongue into play and start using it as you would normally.
However, there is an important thing that you need to keep in mind which is discussed below.
Tip #4: Do not rub your tongue on braces
That is just a big NO! You might get away with it once or twice but you will get hurt if it is done repeatedly. Moreover, that is not how you should kiss anyway. So keep yourself and your partner safe by keeping the tongues away from the linings of your braces.
Tip #5: You’re ready!
So, once your tongue is comfortably moving between your partner’s teeth and both of your tongues are positioned away from your braces, then you can start exploring your partner’s mouth (I know that sounds gross but that’s the way it is). Move your tongue in circles, or just gently move it up and down and show your love to him.
If your partner also wears braces then don’t worry about your braces getting stuck together, either. That is an absolute myth. Braces are not magnetic!
Now that you know how to be a good kisser and more importantly, how to kiss with braces, it is time for you to go and explore with your partner. French kiss is an art and trying to master french kissing with braces is even a bigger achievement. So take it slowly and naturally, you’ll adjust into it. I wish you the best of luck!
