About This Quiz

A person's first kiss is held up in our cultural script as an important moment in your life, a kind of coming of age or rite of passage that you must go through in order to be truly adult (even if it generally occurs some years before you are fully adult). Sadly, in reality, most people's first kiss is rather disappointing, possibly as a result of being so tremendously built up; it would be hard indeed for it to measure up, especially when most of us enjoy our first kiss with someone who is likewise inexperienced. Kissing, after all, is something you get better at once you've done it a little.

Happily, after your first kiss, you get to enjoy all the other kisses you'll ever experience, and the vast majority of them will be much better - and most will probably be pretty darn great. Whether you prefer full on French kissing or something less intimate and more nuzzling-oriented, there are plenty of people out there who likely share your preference and will have chemistry with you that will make it fun for you both.

Still, just because you probably can, doesn't mean you have to. Some people want to kiss fewer people than might be possible. Perhaps they're saving themselves, or they take any sort of contact very seriously. Perhaps they're a little shy, or don't find kissing itself to be particularly worth the hassle. That's a perfectly great option if that's what you prefer, just like kissing lots of people is great for those who enjoy that instead. What's important is that you do you... but we still want you to share a little with us. After all, it's pretty fun to reminisce about your kissing history. Let's get started!
