Do you have tons of fireworks and spark in your relationship with your partner?

Maybe that spark has died out, and you aren’t as lovey-dovey as you once were.

Regardless of where you are in the status of your relationship, there is one thing that might help ignite the spark.

There is a theory, which has recently gone viral on TikTok, called the 6-Second Kiss Rule, and it is kind of exactly what it sounds like.

It’s where you spend a full 6-seconds lip locked with your lover every single day.

People are obsessed with the 6-second kiss because it appears to be a hack that can get us around conflicts or lack of enthusiasm in our relationship and give us a magic pill to skyrocket the chemistry with our partner.

It seems pretty simple and straightforward, right?

But, slow your roll for a second.

How often do we get wrapped up in life, and we barely see our partners in passing, let alone getting into sexy time? It probably happens more than you are willing to admit.

What Exactly Is This 6-Second Kiss Rule?

It’s no shock that spending a little intentional time here and there showing our partners affection does wonders for the relationship.

Love notes, little love pats and squeezes, hugs, gifts given out of love, kind words — it all plays into a successful relationship.

People who really enjoy their sex life generally do these small things that have nothing to do with what goes on in the bedroom.

According to USA Today, “kissing for at least 6 seconds or hugging for 20 seconds both trigger the release of oxytocin, which helps couples bond and feel trusting of each other.”

Now, 6 seconds may not seem like a ton of time, but stand there, lip to lip with someone, for 6 seconds. It’s longer than you think.

You have to be very intentional about it.

You also can’t go into it angry or with an agenda. The 6-second kiss should not be forced, but be a meaningful time of strengthening your relationship.

Let me just challenge you. Try the 6-Second Kiss Rule for a month — a solid month — and I wanna hear your results!!
