His hands brushed against her face lightly. Just a touch, but it was enough for her to realize he was there. She stood still knowing, hoping it was coming. And it did, softly at first, as he tested his control, and then again, that time with the full force of his want, his need. His lips, her lips, found each other again and again. It didn’t matter that she couldn’t see him. At that moment the only thing that mattered was that he was there, and that he was kissing her.
Does that snippet fill you with a deep sense of fulfillment?
No, it doesn't. And why not? Because in order for a kiss to mean something, you have to be emotionally vested in the people who are doing the kissing. There has to be some buildup, something to make you desperately want these two people to come together against all odds; to kiss.
Please enjoy the following video that has some of my favorite kissing scenes from a variety of movies. As you watch it, ask yourself – Are you moved? If you are, I guarantee the scenes are from movies you’ve already seen. You’re already emotionally vested.
