This level of contact involves gazing into one another's eyes, hugging, and kissing. If the stages have not been rushed, it has meaning beyond anything that has gone before. Typically, it is a reflection of sexual desire and romantic feelings between the partners. Of course, many people engage in face to face activity that is merely frivolous and titillating. I was once counted among them. I got my first kiss when I was thirteen years of age.
I was with an "older woman" of fifteen who took advantage of my innocence. Just as I used a nickel to get Shirley's attention, this girl used one to play a trick on me.

As I watched this display of affection, I considered with amusement the possibility of doing the same thing. I wouldn't have done it, of course, but it was interesting to speculate.
If I had leaned forward and wound a curly lock around my finger, Mom might have hit me with a hymnal. Because I would have made an intimate gesture that our relationship did not warrant. I elected not to touch the lady. Stages nine through twelve are distinctly sexual and private.
Obviously, these acts of physical intimacy should be reserved exclusively for the marriage bed. They were intended to be enjoyed by two people who have pledged themselves to lifelong love and irrevocable commitment. Book: Life on the Edge.
