Making out tips please

I don’t think my boyfriend and I are good kissers, I don’t mind it because I think we both suck but hes a bit better than me.

We always get spit all around our mouths and I don’t know what to do with my tongue. I only know how to be on the bottom lip.

How does it really work though? For normal people, I mean.

Does one person put their lips around the other’s mouth basically? Or the lips just touch and the tongues go in?

And what do you do with your tongue? Just stick it in? Swirl it around the other person’s tongue?

I’m honestly really confused......

Please help.

I know it’s probably a dumb question, but I’m honestly confused.
