cl-drellenk: Hi everyone! This is Dr Ellen Kreidman, Ph.D. I wrote the book, The 10 Second Kiss. Some of my other books are Lite His Fire and Lite Her Fire as well as Sex after Kids.
TWNmisspiggy: Sex after kids? Are you kidding me? You can really do that after you have kids?
cl-drellenk: I am amazed at how many people love each other, but don't kiss passionately anymore. I would like everybody here to grab their mate and give them a passionate 10 second kiss. When they ask what's gotten into you, you can tell them you heard this from an author on iVillage and you are not going to be roommates anymore, from now on the two of you will be lovers again.
OP_Mrs.Mic: iVillage is giving away ONE free autographed copy of Dr. Kreidman's book. So join in the fun and YOU might be the lucky member!
TWNmisspiggy: Wow I think I need that book. We haven't had a kiss like that in seven years.
cl-drellenk: Nnorma, men are very visual and you can create a very sexy atmosphere by wearing lingerie or by changing the lighting and setting the mood.
Nnorma: Hey, sounds like a plan, cl-ddrellenk, I'll try it.
cl-drellenk: Misspiggy, the kiss is the core of a relationship. It's the barometer of how things are going, a peck on the cheek says I love you but a 10 second kiss says "I'm still in Love with you." If you do it in the morning it sets the tone for the rest of the day and if you do it in the evening it sets the mood for the rest of the night. Also, toward the end we will be having a contest exercise for everyone, so don't leave before we have a chance to do this.
