Lips can be squeezed into different shapes to show anger, disagreement, love, sexual desire and seduction. In most cases, the lips are used to portray mainly sexual communication and tension. Swagger walk can be used to show dominance, pride, achievement, personal status, sexual orientation, among others. Tongue show, on the other hand, is a widespread mood sign for unspoken disagreement, displeasure, uncertainty, and disbelief. It may counteract, modify or challenge a verbal remark. Cultural variations may influence the non-verbal communication.
