Foreplay is defined as sexual acts done in preparation for intercourse. For some this means plenty kissing and cuddling before the act of copulation, for others it means very little. But what is the main purpose of foreplay? Is it important? Does it add to the sexuality of the intercourse itself? Does foreplay mean different things for each gender? These are the questions I intend to answer in this article.
Foreplay really is different for each couple. There are those who need romance, and there are those who only need to get to the main course. But what is the real importance of foreplay? Mainly it is used for “warming up” before sexual intercourse. This means getting both partners organs good and going before intercourse can happen. Oral sex and manual stimulation are the two big players in the foreplay game. Both are very effective for creating a sense of sexual stimulation for everyone involved.
Many couples believe that foreplay is not only a great way to start off sex, but is required. For men it is important to be erect and rearing to go. For women it is more of a change to the mood of the moment, as well as getting their genitals lubricated enough to enjoy the intercourse. However both genders need to be in the right setting in order to begin intercourse. Foreplay gives both parties what they’re looking for; it both sets a mood, and gets the body physically ready to copulate. Either way 90% of couples say that foreplay does add to the intensity and sexuality of the intercourse itself.
While the main two parts of foreplay are effective, there are many other ways that foreplay can be achieved. In fact there are so many that it is too numerous to name them all. Some of the more romantic aspects of foreplay, include; kissing, cuddling, massage, bathing together, even introducing toys in the bedroom can be effective foreplay for some couples. While men love foreplay as well, women are affected far more by this stage of sexual arousal. In order for most women to achieve orgasm they need to be in a certain mood. Foreplay helps get them to this stage, and so many woman say that foreplay not only makes them “perform” better, but it also helps them make more aggressive moves.
There are many different aspects to foreplay, and 9 out of 10 couples agree that it does in fact make sex better, longer, and more intense. So in that case, it is in fact a very important part of sexual intercourse as a whole.
