Adding a few rounds of intoxicating beverages into the mixture can sometimes turn a little kissing into a whole lot of kissing. But when amore starts flowing a little too freely — to the point where your lips seemingly form their own agenda and get the lock on every target venturing within a 20 foot radius — things can get more than a bit weird. Normally, this might be a good sign it’s time to pull the plug on the evening. That’s not the case in Kissma, where every single kiss counts.”
