Posted January 10, Reviewed by Kaja Perina. Intimate kissing is central in romantic and sexual experiences. Why then, do some people avoid kissing during casual sexual experiences? Kissing, which is a of love, sexual desire, reverence, or greeting, becomes most intimate when the two lips touch each other. In the words of Percy Bysshe Shelley, when kissing "soul meets soul on lovers' lips. Unlike intimacy, which develops over time, commercial sex is typically a one-time, brief, non-intimate experience, whose purpose is sexual release.
Hence, some sex workers refuse to kiss clients on the mouth. This is contrary to the quick, impersonal sexual release associated with street-level prostitution. Bernstein found that sex workers try to manufacture authenticity by trying to simulate—or even produce—genuine desire, pleasure, and erotic interest for their clients, while endowing them with a sense of desirability, esteem, or even love.
While doing so, they also create a meaningful experience for themselves.
Bernstein reports of a sex worker who really enjoyed having sex with an attractive man — a rare thing — and who offered him a special, lower price for their encounters. For another man she was attracted to, she suggested he might "come for free. The additional intimate aspects in girlfriend boyfriend experiences are enhanced in sugaring, which involves money, sex, and bounded intimacy. Sugaring bridges one-off, impersonal sex and intimate profound love. Compared to commercial sex, sugaring includes an extended version of the girlfriend experience, both in terms of time and shared activities.
I cannot kiss and have sex with someone I have no deep emotional bond with. The essential role of kissing in intimate experiences is generally accepted. There are, however, conflicting attitudes concerning kissing in casual sexual experiences lacking profound intimacy: a avoiding both kissing and sex; b having both kissing and sex; c having kissing, but avoiding sex, and d avoiding kissing, but having sex. The three first attitudes are often normatively accepted, as they assume the greater intimacy of casual sex, which typically includes kissing. I focus on the fourth option, which is more complex and problematic.
Catherine Hakim believes that sex is no more a moral issue than eating a good meal, since sexual desire is a biological drive like hunger and thirst. Accordingly, meeting a secret lover Do prostitutes kiss their clients a casual encounter should be as routine as dining out at a restaurant instead of eating at home. In contrast, Roger Scruton argues that unlike biological drives, the objects of sexual desire are not indifferent to the vessel—as is the case with drinking water.
A casual sexual partner is neither a sex worker nor a human vibrator—you neither pay him nor buy new batteries for him. Casual sexual experiences are not merely penetration and sexual release, but human interactions involving genuine desire, pleasure, and sexual interest; hence, they should have some bounded intimacy. We should respect and be kind to those with whom we have even superficial interactions, such as waiters, taxi drivers, insurance agents, bankers, and cleaners.
We should be even kinder with those we have sex with. Indeed, a recent study has shown that casual sexual experiences tend to be evaluated more positively than negatively, despite the fact that they are often associated with a short-term decline in emotional health. Women, and those with less permissive attitudes toward casual sex, tend to respond more negatively, and if the casual sexual experiences involve penetrative oral, vaginal, or anal rather than nonpenetrative contact kissing and touchingthey are more likely to be emotionally damaging experiences Wesche et al.
Kissing involves reciprocity, which is often absent in oral sex. I would never stay with a bad kisser. If it happened, I would be insulted. Bounded intimacy, involving touching and kissing is also exciting in casual sex. Nevertheless, many people avoid kissing during casual sex—despite liking Do prostitutes kiss their clients during profound intimacy.
Kissing enhances intimacy and sexual arousal, so why should we oppose it? Why cannot we be generous toward our casual partners and let them enjoy greater intimacy? The brief and superficial nature of casual sex indicates that activities outside the actual sexual experience are to be avoided.
Thus, although lovers should not leave the room immediately after orgasmthey may not wish to sleep over, or share breakfast. However, it can be argued that even if kissing somewhat prolongs sexual experiences, it is not to the extent of modifying their brief nature.
Those opposing kissing may think that in doing so, intimacy would increase beyond what they want. This is similar to the case of the men refusing to return to a sex worker after being offered free sex, as they worried about greater obligation and intimacy. However, it could be countered that penetration does not make for lesser intimacy and obligation.
Additionally, there are those who do not wish to kiss on a first encounter when they do not feel intimacy. Conversely, authentic intimacy may develop over time and have no rigid boundaries, so some intimacy can be expected even in casual sexual experiences. Examples include cuddling, hugging, and kissing the neck and lips. Likewise, others may be disgusted French kissing without strong intimacy.
However, we may question whether kissing on the lips is less revolting when in loving relationships. And is oral sex less disgusting than kissing on the lips? Kissing is sexually intoxicating; it makes no sense to restrict it in casual sex.
I would also not consider intimate conversations as such. Kissing is sometimes overrated. Though it feels natural during sexual encounters, it is not a sacred activity we should only take part in during our most intimate moments. As kissing enhances intimacy, its usage should hardly be restricted while engaging in casual sex. At other times, kissing is underrated; it is more intimate than mere conversation or dining out at a restaurant.
Not all types of intimacy are suitable for all people in every situation. Some people avoid kissing in the absence of profound intimacy. Others are less strict and allow kissing in non-intimate casual sexual experiences or passionless marriages. The first approach Do prostitutes kiss their clients to follow an all-or-nothing attitude; the second admits compromise. The arc of love: How our romantic lives change over time.

Key points Most people see kissing as an essential part of a sexual encounter, but in situations such as casual hookups and commercial sex, individuals may avoid kissing altogether.
