Kiss Like a Movie Star: Spiderman


"Moment in Time Kiss" --

What's a masked man got that your guy doesn't? Simple: a dash of intrigue and mystery. Here's how you can bring this scene to life -- your life!

What is a lovesick superhero to do? In this action movie, nice but nerdy Peter Parker has long pined after the gorgeous and sweet Mary Jane Watson (Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst). Alas, she's always regarded him as "just a friend." Then a spider bite transforms Peter into a superhero. He dashes about saving people's lives and Mary Jane becomes enthralled by this costumed stranger. The kiss happens after Spiderman rescues Mary Jane from a gang of muggers in a rain-soaked alley. As he hangs upside down, the usually private Spiderman allows Mary Jane to peel the lower half of his mask. The two then share a kiss that is at first tentative, then awed, then tender, then wistful as the would-be lovers realize this moment is all they can have. Despite the downpour in the scene, the eroticism on the screen is smoking!

How on earth can you recreate this scenario? After all, you know your partner's identity and he certainly isn't a superhero. (Well, not the web-spinning kind.) There are two ways to make this movie magic happen in your own life.

The first is simple. Walk up to your guy and plant on him the most passionate kiss ever -- but leave it at that. Just a kiss. Not even a superhero will be able to resist the urge for more, so don't be surprised when he can't keep his hands off you for the rest of the night (or until you give in)!

Looking for a bigger idea? Have a costume party. Who cares that it's months from Halloween -- everyone loves the chance to dress up and boogie down. Ask your partner what he's wearing but only offer him tantalizing teases about your costume. Tell him he has to spend the night hunting for his ladylove. Assure him that the reward, once he finds you, will be well worth his trouble.

Spend the first part of the night evading your costumed Romeo. Then start coming closer, let him hear your voice, then disappear. When you notice he is zeroing in, start leading him on. Making sure he is following you. When you are near somewhere private (closet, bathroom, attic) ensure that he is in hot pursuit, then dash inside this secretive hideaway. When he enters, sneak up behind him and whisper that you're so sorry that the two of you have just this stolen moment. Suggest you keep your masks on. Peel the parts obscuring your lips, then kiss him, tentatively at first, then like this is the last time you will ever see this amazing person who is so dear to you. As he tries to prolong the kiss, slip out of his embrace and out the door. He will be desperate to be alone with you. The stage is now set for a combustible and private post-party love scene.
