Why foreplay is so important and how to do it better

Physically foreplay is needed for both sexes.

When people think about foreplay and why it is needed from practical side, first thing which usually comes in mind is women’s health, but it is a misconception that physically foreplay is needed only for women. Yes, it is crucial part for women to be ready for penetration, but also it is a vital part of men’s sexuality.  Usually men need less time and preparation for it, but, while for a woman foreplay, indeed, is more important, so the woman can feel relaxed and comfortable (sometimes it is need to not feel pain during sex), and also to reach orgasm, men need foreplay as well for increased intimacy and pleasure – and, sometimes a good foreplay can extend the duration of sex, not the other way around.

Foreplay for emotional connection.

Of course, foreplay is needed not only for physical reasons. Foreplay is also a good way how to build deeper emotional connection between partners and create more good emotions and memories in your relationship. It gives insight what your other half would like to experience with you, and is good way how to relax and completely open up to partner, which in turn will be the groundwork for a better foreplay experience.

Make time for your partner.

Making time for your partner is a significant part of relationships in general, but in foreplay it is even more important. There is a saying “Foreplay begins, when the sex ends”, meaning that foreplay is not only the physical part before sex, but everything in between – compliments, gifts, caring, passion, your looks, and so on. So, to say the least, a good foreplay always takes time, especially if you aren’t sure what exactly to do. Make sure that in the everyday rush you do not forget to care for each other, and from time to time give undivided attention to your loved one, when nothing can disturb you two in the middle of process!

Be creative and experiment!

If we are talking about the process, most people understand with the word “Foreplay”, the beginning that makes you going, is always the hardest part, so you can start with simple things like kissing, dirty talk, and slowly feeling each other’s bodies. Don’t rush into the things – first go with less sensitive body parts like legs, hands etc. Maybe you can give romantic or even erotic massage? It’s up to you! Just listen what your partner wants and experiment!
