Well known to who?
Out of my entire post I am wondering why you are focusing on this one little thing? I am using it as an example of how unwilling he is to make changes for the betterment of our mutual happiness. He thinks I am trying to control him. I'm trying to show him another way to experience something as simple as a kiss.
This example shows real issues on both side. Yes, it is a small thing that he could do to make it better for you. I would encourage him to do this from time to time as a gesture to you.
But it is also a small thing that shows you telling him what is the right way to do things. Perhaps he is more visual, so he gets heightened enjoyment with also watching you when he kisses you? What if he demanded that you open your eyes to better enjoy his kisses? I understand you have what works for you, but yours is not the universal experience. You are trying to control your husband, and I suspect he is rejecting that.
