valentines-day.jpgCupid is the god of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. He is often portrayed as the son of the love goddess Venus and the war god Mars.

Cupid is also known in Latin also as Amor ("Love"). His Greek counterpart is Eros and he is just one of the ancient symbols associated with St Valentine's Day, along with the shape of a heart, doves, and the colours red and pink.

He is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow which he uses to strike the hearts of people. People who fall in love are said to be 'struck by Cupid's arrow'.





 

History of Valentine's Day

happy-valentines-day-teddy-bear-graphic.jpgSt Valentine's Day, happens this Tuesday on February 14. It's a day where people show their love and affection for another person - usually in the form of cards, flowers, gifts and messages.

The details are sketchy. Some say St Valentine was a priest from Rome who lived in the third century AD. Emperor Claudius II had banned marriages, believing married men made bad soldiers and St Valentine is thought to have arranged marriages in secret.

He was imprisoned and sentenced to death for his crimes. There, St Valentine apparently fell in love with the jailer's daughter and sent her a love letter signed 'from your Valentine' on February 14th, the day of his execution, as a goodbye.

The name 'Valentinus' is found in the Martyrologium Hieronymianum, a book which was compiled between 460 and 544. The feast of St Valentine of February 14th was first established in 496 by Pope Gelasius I, who included Valentine among all those "... whose names are justly reverenced among men, but whose acts are known only to God."

Wearing a coronet made from flowers and with a stencilled inscription, St Valentine's skull now resides in the Chiesa di Santa Maria in Cosmedin, on Rome's Piazza Bocca della Verita.





Men share their tips on kissing

happy-kiss-day-2014-wallpapers.jpgKissing is by far the most sensual and exciting thing you can do with another person. In a way, a kiss is even more intimate than sex. When you're completely engaged with another person's face -- your lips, bodies, and minds connecting -- you have the potential to create a moment that's way more intense than a few mere thrusts of the hips.

A few men to tell us what they want to see, feel and taste during a make-out session. What they say may surprise you, but one thing's for sure: it will make you a better kisser!

Tip #1: Let him initiate

Most modern men believe in a woman's right to vote, a woman's right to choose, and a woman's right to take control in the bedroom whenever she damn well feels like it. But surprisingly, when it comes to puckering up, most of our guys preferred to play things more traditionally.

"When it comes to kissing, I think that there's something just right about a man taking the lead," said Kevin, 29.

"A woman can initiate a kiss, just not the first kiss," qualified Dylan, 26.

Tip #2: Keep your eyes wide shut

"If the kiss is worth it, then the eyes are definitely closed," said Ed, 29.

Still, some men acknowledged just how hot a smoldering glance can be.

"This woman I was kissing suddenly stopped, looked me in the eyes, then went back at it," Matty, 29, reminisced.

Tip #3: Open up and say, "ahhh!"

Everyone agreed that an open-mouthed kiss is usually the most sensual. Still, it's important to know the difference between swapping a little spit and recreating Niagara Falls on your guy's face.

"Too little saliva is dry and unsatisfying but too much will make you gag. Best to start off conservative and increase the dose until you find the amount that makes both of you breathe a little faster," said Robert, 36.

Tip #4: Kiss with your hands

Every good kisser knows that you need to use more than just your mouth to create a make-out session that's unforgettable.

"I like when a woman puts her arms high up around me and runs her fingers through my hair," said Paul, 35.

"It always turns me on if the person I'm kissing puts her hand on my leg," said Ben, 27.

"I'm a big fan of the lower back caresses when standing and the chest caress when lying down," said Steve, 30.

"Touch a man's face, caress the back of his head, pull him closer. Sucking and light biting on my bottom lip -- these are good things," Cecyl, 30, told us.

Tip #5: Get a little kinky

For adventurous kissers, there are some moves you can make that will completely rock his world. Just beware -- not all men are into the same things, so feel him out first.

"I love it when a woman will move her hands up my shirt and play with my nipple," said Steve.

"It makes a kiss so much better when a girl reaches down, grabs what's arising in my pants and strokes and squeezes me while she kisses," said David, 31.

While you're exploring, be on the alert for any no-fly zones.

"Do not kiss me below the thighs. No thank you," said Earl, 27.

Tip #6: Drop the balm on him

Maintenance is key. If you know you're heading for seven minutes in heaven, make them kissable by prepping with lip balm or a light (read: non-sticky) gloss.

"Make your lips look appealing. Use lipstick, lip balm or moisturizer," said Luigi, 30

"Ladies, moisturize your lips on a frequent basis. Use lip balm, beeswax, whatever. Just make darn sure they're not chapped," instructed James, 29.

Tip #7: Choose wisely

For a kiss to be truly great, there has to be both a physical and a mental connection between the two people.

"Great kisses start with conversation. From the intonation of phrases uttered and the innuendo of words spoken to the restrained desire in the eyes," said Cecyl.

happy-kiss-day-2014-wallpapers.jpgKiss day falls on the sixth day of the Valentine week in the run up to the day of love which is celebrated on February 13 every year. The Kiss Day is a day of expression of your passionate feelings.

A kiss represents the feelings of love, affection and respect for each other. It is said that a person never forgets his/her first kiss as it becomes the first and one of the most special experience of their lives. It can be as simple as a peck on the cheek and as romantic as a French kiss.

A kiss also has health benefits as the process involves about 34 facial and 112 postural muscles. One of the 'kissing muscles' Orbicularis oris is used to pull together the lips around. Doctors say a romantic kiss helps in reducing stress level, freshening the mind and body, burning calories, lowering bad blood cholesterol and helps to keep the heart away from chronic diseases.

It is said that a kiss is the expression of our souls and each kind conveys a different feeling. You will kiss your lover much differently than that of a dear friend. Here is the list of the many ways:

  • The Forehead Kiss
  • The French Kiss
  • The Single-Lip Kiss
  • The Hand Kiss
  • The Earlobe Kiss
  • Lingering Lip Kiss
  • The Cheek Kiss
  • The Peck
  • The Air Kiss
