Why don't I like kissing?

I'm sixteen years old, and have been in several relationships. I'm abstinent, but I see nothing wrong with kissing, cuddling, etc. The problem is, I don't get anything out of kissing. I feel bad for my boyfriend because he obviously gets something out of it, but It's just an action for me. It's not just this relationship. I've never really felt the point of Kissing. I know it's supposed to act like a stimulant, but I haven't really felt that yet. I have been turned on before, but it's more just because of something the guy said (if that makes sense?) I'm not afraid of kissing, but I thinks it can be sorta of vulgar.

I don't mean to sound like a prude, because I sure as hell am not. I also thought for a while I amy jsut be immature, but I don't think I am.

Anyone have any ideas?

Help?

perhaps it just appeals to some and not all, or maybe you should change the style of your kissing. Do it with other techniques and try and see if you like it and if you still dont, I believe its normal cause, not 100% of the entire population on Earth likes kissing right.! :D

I don't like it either, and i'm a guy. I can see the point in it. It's an expression of love and stuff...I just don't find it appealing. I'd rather cuddle...

Please try not to worry about these things. You are still young and have much ahead of you - including plenty of time! There are many reasons why you may not like kissing - but none that should have you worried. Maybe you're just not that into your boyfriend that way but love him in other ways, maybe it's just a personal preference, or maybe you are not ready to have that kind of contact for whatever reason.

Give yourself a break! You are just starting to explore who you are. Just do what feels right for you - not what others say you should be doing.

Good luck.

I dont think anyone could really give you a reason for this. I mean it is your body and your mind, and some people just feel different about certain things. Kissing someone is suppose to be a passionate thing, and most people do enjoy kissing. you may not be getting the feel of it right, maybe try getting into it a little bit more, see how that helps. also, kissing is not always just for being turned on, although it could be. I really dont se anything wrong with how you feel though, like i said some people feel different about things.
