The Eskimo kiss has long been thought to be a way for Eskimos to kiss so their lips didn't freeze together in cold Arctic conditions. In reality it's used as a substitute for shaking hands since Eskimos typically have only their nose and eyes exposed for physical contact. However in this modern world culture, everyone can enjoy the 'touch' since it seems to be quite common now; At least in western countries!
The correct way to do an Eskimo kiss:
1. Put your arms around the one you wish to give an Eskimo kiss to, or put your hands on their arms.
2. Put your face closer to his or her face. You may have to bend over or pull them down closer to you. Make it so you are eye to eye, nose to nose with them.
3. Make it a loving gesture and not a rough, cumbersome one to obtain the desired effect and leave the recipient joyful with a smile on his or her face.
4. Place the left edge of the tip of your nose gently on the left edge of the tip of his or her nose.
5. Go back and forth lightly like a butterfly's wings over his or her nose.
6. Pull back and smile at your loved one. You just made their day. :D
Effect of Eskimo kiss:
"An Eskimo kiss can be romantic with a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband. Spouses and significant others love to receive an Eskimo kiss because it is a gesture of true affection.
An Eskimo kiss can be a sweet and affectionate gesture to a child. Children love Eskimo kisses and it leaves them feeling loved and happy.."
Therefore Eskimo kissing is a form of expressing affection, usually between family members and loved ones, that involve two people rubbing their noses together. It's a actually a non-erotic form of greeting that serves as an intimate way of greeting one another.
