Who invented this custom? When you don’t keep your eyes closed you’re violating a sacred principle. It’s like eating cereal with your hands when nobody’s around. Nobody sees you, but you still feel weird and like you’re violating the natural order.
If you need a reason to keep your eyes closed while kissing, here are seven top reasons,
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.
2. “It is a sign of pleasure”
We close our eyes everytime 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.
3. “It is a sign of trust”
You don’t have to be eyes-wide opened and on the look out when you are in a place of trust and security.
4. “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.
5. “It is a sign of surrender”
It shows you are not fighting the kiss, you’re kissing back, you’re giving into the moment.
6. “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.
7. “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.
