Spit-Trail Kiss

Go To
Sometimes a kiss between two characters isn't sexy enough. So what do you do to spice it up? Just make it a lot messier and make it clearer that fluids are being swapped with a spit trail. When the two subjects separate from their kiss, you see a strand of saliva between the two in order to make the kiss at least a little bit more explicit.

Looks similar to Phlegmings, yet characters who show one of these will rarely show the other.

  • Hetalia: Axis Powers fanfic Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità: Italy and Japan had one after sharing their first french kiss.
    "YAY!" Pouncing, the blithe pressed his lips to the raven's, causing every nerve in the other's body to overload as strange sensations raced across his spine. The kiss deepened, forcing his mouth open as a questing appendage entered. The receiver snapped out of it as his tongue joined in, battling for dominance as he fought back. This was something he had never experienced before; these sensations bordered overwhelming as the pleasure of it all rushed through him. Once the demand for oxygen became too great, the two broke apart, a trail of saliva still connecting them. A French kiss?! Well, that was a first for both. I guess since Germany technically got Italy's first kiss as Holy Rome, it's only fair that Japan gets Italy's first French kiss, right?
