What is kissing? It's an intimate act of desire that can escalate to an even more intimate act of intercourse. Because yes, on a primal level, that's the main reason we're here.

Most people can’t focus on anything as close as a face at a kissing distance so closing your eyes saves them from looking at a distracting blur or the strain of trying to focus.

Kissing can also make us feel vulnerable or self-conscious and closing your eyes is a way of making yourself more relaxed. It’s like turning out the light before having sex but in miniature.

 Ever wondered why we close our eyes when kissing? Well, Dayan Masinde lets you in on the reasons as to why that is the only way it should be…keep those eyes closed!

  1. To let the lips talk

After talking and using so many words, kissing is a way we express intimacy that no words can articulate.

  1. It is a sign of pleasure

We close our eyes every time we are experiencing something pleasurable; when we listen to a beautiful song, when we pray, when we worship, when we sleep, when having an orgasm, when drinking sweet chocolate.

  1. It is a sign of trust

You don’t have to be eyes wide open and on the lookout when you are in a place of trust and security.

  1. It heightens pleasure

When one of your five senses is blocked, the other senses are heightened in function; ask the blind, the deaf, or dumb. When you close your eyes when kissing, your sense of touch that connects your lips is heightened. You concentrate on the sweetness of the lips.

  1. It is a sign of surrender

It shows you are not fighting the kiss, you’re kissing back, and you’re giving into the moment.

  1. To avoid a weird scene

It will be weird and spooky when you have wide-opened eyes looking directly at you at such a close distance for so many minutes.

  1. You are turned on

A long kiss is such a turn-on. Closing your eyes is you shutting off everything that is happening around you, to concentrate on the arousal and excitement happening inside you.
