    I disagree with both stands. There is no relation between kissing and playing.

    Great playing requires muscle memory for fine motor activity and effective kissing often needs the will to forget..........

    No engineering degree for me. Just trumpet. My technical schooling happened with IBM. No kissing there........

    but there is medical degree for me. Different muscles are used. I concur with rowuk.

    Seriously?

    Of course not.

    There is no relationship between playing the trumpet and kissing.

    This is a corollary to the original. I will not disagree with this perspective. Trumpet players (men or women) make better kissers. But I would like to hear what our female readers thing of this perspective:

    A variation of Vulgano Brother's original post: I still do not believe kissing will give you better playing chops. Again as posted above, this requires using muscles differently. Trumpet playing is work, demanding work. Kissing is pleasure, with little force, and relaxed. With improved muscle tone, mass and poufy distribution, trumpet players will have more tissue to suckle on and with, and the ability to generate and have more intimate control of pressure play.

    I'm not so sure. I've found that the appropriate application of kissing improves my wife's ability and willingness to tolerate my trumpet playing.

    Again this is so wrong in so many ways. Metal over flesh. No KT, now I'm thinking you need more than an agent.
