A Multimedia Presentation by William Cane

This is a photo of some of the demonstrators kissing during a lecture Mr. Cane gave at Boston College. Notice how involved these RA's are in what they're doing, as if nothing could distract them, even though they're in front of hundreds of cheering students.

Here is a look at what happens during a college kissing show. This clip features William Cane directing the kissing show at the University of Delaware.

What the presentation includes:
Topics covered include the psychology of kissing, types of kisses, and methods of making yourself more kissable in the eyes of the opposite sex. Let the man who is considered the world's authority on kissing delight your audience with tips for more intimate kisses, advice on where men and women like to be kissed best (based on the first Internet kissing survey in history), bizarre kissing customs from around the world, the newest fads in French kissing, and point by point instructions for today's trendiest kisses, including: the upside-down kiss, lip-o-suction, the vacuum kiss, the music kiss, the Trobriand Islands kiss and more.

Here is a more extended look at what happens during the kissing show. This clip features the neck kiss and the dentist fantasy skit.

Why is kissing so popular?
You know the answer to this question, so we don't think we have to say any more about it. William Cane has received thousands of phone calls and letters with questions, concerns and comments about kissing techniques, so he knows exactly what's on your audience's mind. There won't be a single dropout when he conducts his kissing school live on your campus.
