On the upper side, you kiss me.

In the middle, your fingers caress my body.

And below is the burning flame of hot love.

It's definitely not something sexual anyone might be thinking.

What am I?

You are

A Cigarette.

  • On the upper side, you kiss me.

    a cigarette is kept in the mouth in such a way that is as close as possible to kissing.

  • In the middle, your fingers caress my body.

    In the middle is where you hold a cigarette, with your fingers "caressing" the cigarette.

  • And below is the burning flame of hot love.

    the bottom is where the hottest part is, which glows more and more as you kiss(suck it) it more(this is love probably). And the more your "love" is, the hotter it gets.

    $\begingroup$ Perfect answer. xD You're correct! $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 17 '19 at 8:31

A cup of hot drink?
You touch the top of the cup of your lips (kiss)
You hold it somewhere in the middle
The hot drink is in the bottom of the cup.

    $\begingroup$ This one makes more sense to me than the designated correct answer, because it addresses the "top", "middle", and "below" aspects. $\endgroup$ – Admiral Jota Jan 17 '19 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ @AdmiralJota and so does the accepted answer...? I like both answers, but I do believe this one needs more upvotes ;) $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Jan 17 '19 at 21:30
  • $\begingroup$ @user477343 I tend to think of the accepted answer as being horizontal (at least, when in use, which is what the clues refer to), so "top" and "below" don't apply so well. $\endgroup$ – Admiral Jota Jan 18 '19 at 14:34

    $\begingroup$ @user477343 Good question. Perhaps "the near side" and "afar" instead of "the upper side" and "below"? But that's just off the top of my head. $\endgroup$ – Admiral Jota Jan 18 '19 at 14:55

    $\begingroup$ @Admiral Jota user477343 I'm sorry I can't really help it. I could've edited my question earlier, but for now, I found a picture of this guy vertically smoking a cigarette: img1 And this one: img2 $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 18 '19 at 15:55

I know there's an already accepted answer but...

Could it be a


On the upper side, you kiss it

You eat the marshmallow at the tip of the stick, and if it's hot enough, you can only "kiss" it with your lips.

In the middle, you caress it with your fingers

That's where you gently hold the stick.

And below, the burning flame of hot love

That's the lovely bonfire that allows you to prepare such a lovely snack.
