Ten Passionate Movie Kisses

From Here to Eternity


Kisses can be sweet like candy, or so passionate that your body goes up in flames.  Those are truly amazing and when you see this type of kiss on film, and can almost feel that it’s you in that fiery embrace, then you know that it is one spectacular passionate movie kiss.

Sigh…I love this type of film.  Take me out of my reality and let me dwell in a world of fantasy where I’m the star, and my lover stares deep into my eyes, and presses his hard 6 pack abs against me (he also has that V thing at his hips happening), and  kisses me as if he would die without it.  Sigh…

Ok, let’s shake that off and return to real time.  Below are scenes from some films that are my faves when it comes to either being outright a romance film, or a film that creates such anticipation for that kiss, that when it happens, all is right with the world of love and romance.

Looking at the list, I see that some of the kisses I chose encompassed a wide spectrum of films.  But these kisses just happen to standout, and this is what they represent to me.

The Thin Man


The Thin Man – Nick & Nora
This classic couple were fun loving and were each other’s best friend.  Their kiss represents the affection that they held for one another.  They not only loved, but laughed together.



The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby – Daisy & Jay
Many didn’t like the film for it’s supposed ‘sappiness’.  Whatever!  Don’t know what they are talking about.  The film was the perfect accompaniment to the book.  It’s a tale of lost love.  We breathlessly awaited their reunion and their first kiss after years of being apart.



Love Story


Love Story – Oliver & Jenny
A story that had everyone crying about young love ending too soon.  For the short time they had together, they loved well.




West Side Story
West Side Story – Tony & Maria

My favorite musical!  A modern day Romeo & Juliet with singing and dancing.  Love at first sight let to this kiss.  Yes, we normally have lust at first sight, but love?  That’s a lovely dream.




Titanic – Jack & Rose

There is a Heaven, and they are together for eternity.  (Side Note – I wore this exact same dress for my wedding).  Please don’t gag.




Ghost – Sam & Molly
OMG!  This film had me crying like a baby.  And this ‘goodbye kiss’, totally put me over the edge.  So beautiful and sad.




Dracula – Mina & Dracula
I told you my list was kind of out there.  Their passion just explodes in this kiss.  I mean he is a vampire and the entire seduction throughout is blazing hot.




Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars – The Empire Strikes Back – Leia & Han
Their chemistry just sizzled.  Their fighting and arguing just made us want them to get together even more.  And when they did…wow!  How could you not want to love a bad boy?




Twilight – Bella & Edward
The best of the series.  Young love, well at least on her part, with him being a bit older.  Again vampires just have it going with the passion.  The foreplay before the kiss made the waiting worth it.




Eastern Promises
Eastern Promises – Nikolai & Anna
Throughout this violent film, the protectiveness that Nikolai showed toward Anna, again has the bad boy showing just a tad of this gentle side.  And this bittersweet kiss is more about the sharing of two souls, knowing that there can’t be anything more beyond that.


So there’s my list.  These passionate kisses are only a few that are worth mentioning, but I feel these kisses from these films show us what we should expect in our own lives.  A passionate kiss is so much more than the ‘act’ of kissing.  There has to be underlying meaning.  Emotion has to be brought to the forefront in order to experience the true meaning of a passionate kiss.  Here’s hoping that all of you have many passionate Candy Kisses.

Love & Candy Kisses,


Picture Crush

Harlequin CoupleI have a crush on this picture.

It’s like being in a museum and standing in front of a work of art.  Now I understand why people can go and stare at a painting, study it, and have to discuss it with others.  Some get it, and some don’t.  I was in the latter category.  I probably always will be.  I’m just not that into museums.  But photos like this just take my breath away.

The couple are so beautiful in this photo.  The bride looks absolutely perfect, as she should on her wedding day.  He has her in a dip and her veil and gown just flow into place.  And the groom!  How can you not drool over a man in uniform?  He just looks so masculine and handsome.

Questions begin running through my head.  Is this the romance for the ages?  Will he be going off to war?  What will happen to them?  I want to believe that they are what I like to call a ‘Harlequin’ couple.

I’m a romantic and I love to read.  My favorite books being Harlequin Romance Novels.  I’ve been reading them ever since I was 12.  Blame my mother who used to buy them for me.  : )  They help me relax and allow me to live in my fantasy world of romance.

Anyway, the books are usually about the journey that a couple undergoes in finding their one true love.  During this process, when they first meet, it’s either love or hate at first sight, then there is a major conflict that comes into play, then finally, how everything is resolved and they declare their love and live happily ever after.  In all of this, the Harlequin couple is born.  To me they have ‘paid their dues’ so to speak, in order to have a love such as this.  They were meant to be.  They are a ‘Harlequin’ couple.

So when I look at this photo, that’s what I see.  Whatever the story is behind it, I’m not sure I want to know.  It may burst my romantic bubble.  I want to believe that they are on that love pedestal I have placed them on.  I do know that it makes me happy, and has affected me.

Gazing at this picture inspires me to write.  I guess that’s what all great art does…it takes a hold of you and inspires.

Kisses 4 ever,

Candy Kisses – New & Improved!


Hello Everyone!

I’m so very excited to finally have the ‘new’ site up and running.  Not that the old site wasn’t nice, but I hope to do so much more with this one.  I’m a romantic, and since the site is called Candy Kisses.com, I figured while talking about keeping our lips protected from the harsh elements, why not also talk about why we want our lips to be smooth and kissable?  It’s all about ‘kissing’ that special someone.

Kissing has been around some believe for close to 5 thousand years.  Many prominent people and scholars have studied this expression of affection.  Well, good for them.  It sounds like cool research.  Can you imagine the questions they must have asked their guinea pigs?

Of course there are all types of kissing.  But romantic kissing, you and I know, is up there with breathing.  It makes you feel special and good about yourself, because someone is adoring you for that moment in time.  It’s a sweet feeling.  It lays the ground work for what is to come.


I still remember my first kiss.  I must have been seven or eight.   My friend and I were practicing with two boys who were our age, while we were in daycare!  I recall that he had light brown hair, and kissed very well.  I also remember him being very complimentary after the kiss!  As I look back now that first kiss pretty much set the bar for future lip locks.  I’m just glad he was good at it!


Kisses now are like a fine wine.  They are to be savored.  They need to be full bodied and full of flavor.  After many ‘tastings’, I realize that I don’t have to obsess for looking beyond the kiss, but to just enjoy the art of kissing in itself. Life is passing by so fast these days, so stop and give someone a kiss.  Let them know that for that moment, they are important to you.

I wish you many Candy Kisses in your future.  The human physical kind, and the Candy Kisses lip balm kind.  : )

Do you remember your first kiss?  

Kisses 4 Ever,
