    Is it possible to have a marriage without kisses? I have hang-ups about kissing and I am getting married very soon. What can I do to help my new wife understand ? What can I do to get more comfortable with kissing?

    I'm repulsed by kissing. I don't kiss when I fuck unless I'm drunk off my ass. Mine was caused by a fear of things near my mouth though.

    I personally love kissing, but I know of couples who rarely kiss if at all. It's possible. There are married couples who don't have sex so I don't see why you couldn't have a marriage without kissing.

    Since I am so much into kissing, I find it hard to understand that you don't like it, but of course everyone has different ideas of fun. May I ask if you can somehow explain, why you don't like it?

    In my opinion, it's certainly possible to get along with out kissing, as long as both of you agree on that. But you say you need to make her understand. Didn't you tell her before? What is her opinion?

    I love kissing...it is extremely important to me as I find it to be one of the most sensual aspects in a relationship. As much as I love sex, I'd rather go without it than without kissing.

    Ditto...and I had a girl who had a boyfriend at the time and she would rather fuck me than let me kiss her because she found kissing far more intimate to the point that she'd feel more guilty kissing me than fucking me. I kissed her and she kept at it for a loong time. It was awesome. I could not have an intimate relationship without kissing. I'm of the same opinion as the girl, who's now single, and loving it :wink:

    If you don't kiss you aren't getting anywhere with me. I just love to kiss. End of story.

    Is this an arranged marriage? Do your religious beliefs prevent you from touching her or talking to her about sex before marriage?

    And why do you not like kissing?

    All the people who are saying they like kissing.. we aren't asking if you like it or not. He asked what he should do about it.

    I answered his first question. I can't answer the other. I mean if he has issue with it at this point in his life, it might be difficult. His new wife may change his mind. It could happen.

    Is it possible to have a marriage without kisses? Probably but I don't personally know of any. I have hang-ups about kissing and I am getting married very soon. What can I do to help my new wife understand? You need to talk about this with her before the wedding. What can I do to get more comfortable with kissing? I would suggest therapy to come to grips with why you are so uncomfortable with kissing.

    You have to tell her exactly how you feel about kissing and make sure she is OK with that. As you can see, for many people, kissing is very intimate, more intimate than sex for some, and they enjoy it with people they love. You owe it to your fiancee to tell her exactly what she's getting before you get married. You should also tell her about any other sexual or intimacy issues you have just as she should tell you about hers. Engagements are the time to lay everything out in the open because once you're married it's too late.

    You may come to find kissing is pleasurable or you may not. The only way is to practice it. Nothing will make you enjoy it if you simply don't enjoy it.

    As to making her understand, if you love her then say so, if you find her sexually pleasing then say so. Tell her she's wonderful and appealing to you but that YOU have a problem with kissing not just her but anyone. You realize this is your issue and you are willing to work it out with her if it's important to her. Sexual compatibility is an important part of marriage and it's a good idea to try to accomodate the other partner if at all possible and, if you can't, to explain how it is no reflection on your partner that you can't.

    I think I have found the crux of the problem. In this post, http://www.lpsg.org/1006398-post23.html. Unfortunately, it seems low self-esteem is the greater of the OP's issues.

    It seems that Americans either view foreskin as a commodity or (more often) view it with disgust. I've been rejected almost all the times I could have gotten sex because of my foreskin. That's part of the reason why I chose to be put in an arranged marriage instead of a "love marriage".

    Here's looking at ya, njqt! :wink:

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    I completely agree with you, Jason_ELS. Absolutely. But this might be a problem if his religion does not permit this discussion.

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Hindupridemn -- if your religion permits, Jason_ELS and njqt466 have given you some excellent advice above.

    HOWEVER, if your religion prohibits you from speaking to your future wife about this, my suggestion is to talk to her through a relative.

    If she wants to kiss, and you don't work this out, you are going to have an unhappy bride, and I'm sure you and her family don't want that. :wink:

    Good sleuthing there nj!

    As everyone on this forum is acutely aware, I'm a big advocate of foreskin. I must advise you however, that circumcision is probably a wiser move for you than an arranged marriage. If you find that it really gives you a problem with sex and makes you feel this way about yourself, then I highly suggest you look into it.

    There are cultures here in the US that continue with the tradition of arranged marriages. So long as you're both of age, great. It is very difficult to live within an arranged marriage if that is something you're settling for rather than wanting. It sounds like you've gone out and met girls and wanted to be with them but ran into problems so you feel you have no other choice than to have an arranged marriage. I also notice you're 70/30 so there's a sexuality issue here as well.

    Arranged marriages are difficult here in the US because we're a culture that believes romantic love is the basis for marriage. It's difficult to keep an arranged marriage happy if the culture you live in and the people you live with in your daily life do not also have arranged marriages. Your friends will be shocked and if you're both unhappy in the marriage, your friends will constantly urge you to divorce and seek romantic love elsewhere. I know there are happy arranged marriages out there. I know people who have arranged marriages. It seems to me that to be successful, these marriages had to have partners who wanted it to work and worked hard to love each other. I also know that in at least one of those marriages that the man had other lovers because while he loved his wife as friend and mother to his children, he did not love her romantically.

    Be really, really, careful with this. I know there can be a great deal of pressure on you to enter into an arranged marriage, but don't enter into it if you're only doing it because you feel you have no other choice because the marriage likely won't last.

    I agree with NJ and the other poster. If your not permitted to talk directly to her find another avenue. This subject needs to be addressed before your married, culture or no culture!

    I wish you the best of luck either way. For me personally, I know I could not marry someone who didn't share the same oral passion as I do called kissing!

    Good Luck and many of us understand if for religious reasons you can't discuss this any further.

    sorry I was in India for quite some time and did not have access to LPSG. I was offended by the post that said circumcision was a wiser choice. Circumcision has a high risk of infection, decreases sexual response, and makes injuries during energetic sex more possible. Besides it is considered blasphemy in our religion. Why should I mutilate the most precious part of my body just to suit the immature expectations of someone I may only have sex with once? There are more religions than this for arranged marriage. It's expected by my family. It's expected by my culture. I have bad taste in women and trust my family's choice, God's intervention, and astrology more than myself. Also, I want to make sure my children are raised Hindu. Moreover, my current fiancee was the 17th girl we considered and the marriage was supposed to happen right after high school. I postponed it by four years. When I first saw her picture I knew she was the one. I really do love her even though I have never met her in person.

    As for kissing, it is permitted by our religion but was never part of our culture until contact with the West. My parents and their generation have never kissed but modern women like my future wife will probably expect it.

    As for why I am afraid of kissing, I have three theories. I have a bad relationship with my parents and kissing seems like giving away my soul which is hard with the trust issues I have. Also I have a mild form of autism which makes my nerves very sensitive. Thirdly, I was forced to give oral sex to a group of teenage boys when I was seven and the idea of touching things with my mouth has troubled me ever since.
