​Now this is a no strings attached kiss, if this kiss leads to sex, then great, it’s important to think of going into this kiss with simply sharing a few seconds to be close with your partner and allowing yourself to be in the moment together.

Most couples give each other a peck on the lips when greeting each other and often don’t even think about what a few seconds can do for their relationship. Couples who have been together a while will sometimes say that the passion they had has gone away and are striving to find that again.

Meanwhile, other couples mention that they wish their intimacy was as spontaneous as it used to be. Engaging in a longer kiss will help just that. ​Will this six-second kiss solve all your problems and spark your intimacy back 100%, well not entirely. But, it will change what you are doing now and will bring in some novelty and excitement back. Dr. John Gottman suggests that engaging in a 6 second kiss daily is a kiss that has potential!
