Why Foreplay Matters

10.13.2021 - Sex Ed

Do you always skip to dessert or do you have a meal beforehand?

While it’s tempting to go straight towards the delicious and savory treat, it’s sometimes better enjoyed after you fulfill your other basic body needs first. Sex is no exception to this rule, which is where foreplay comes in before something else does!

Foreplay isn’t just about getting the juices flowing, it’s about building better sexual and personal connections. It’s for you and there is no right or wrong way to do it, or to prepare to do it!

...it’s about building better sexual and personal connections.

Better Sexual Experiences

Even though foreplay comes before play, it still has an important role in your overall sexual satisfaction.

One of the best bottoming tips is to properly lube before anal sex and foreplay can help make the process of lubing your anus and your partner more fun and sensual. Foreplay also helps to relax your anus and also stretch it out, especially if you’re using toys as a way to pregame for the main event. These steps will not only help to circumvent injury but also increase comfort.

For older and younger men, foreplay can also help in getting and maintaining an erection. You can also take this time to get familiar with your partner and their non-verbal sexual cues, leading to more collaborative sexual experiences!

Enhanced Relationships

While not every man you hook up with will go on to become your husband, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a connection during sex!

Foreplay can help develop intimate emotional relationships for short-term and long-term partners. It’s an opportunity to get to know them better and understand how their body and mind works. 

Best of all, foreplay is an incredible communication exercise. You will start a dialogue with your partner, or yourself, about what feels good. This is also a great time to explore or give sexual feedback beforehand instead of later when it’s not as easy to communicate.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

For some men, taking fiber capsules and a warm shower is all they need to get in the mood. Other men, however, want and need more intimacy.

Foreplay methods are endless and can include nipple play, using toys, sexting, massages, showering together, and exploring erogenous zones. The duration can last however long you want from under 10 minutes to half an hour. The key is that both partners enjoy it and agree on what to do throughout their mutual foreplay experience.

Despite what the word suggests, foreplay can also be mixed in throughout your night (or day) with your man, it’s not solely limited to before sex! Just be sure to be fully stocked of our Lube to avoid that awkward run to the pharmacy!

Stay Ready to Get Ready

Foreplay matters because you matter. It’s a way to prepare your body, mind, and your partner for physical and emotional intimacy. Even if it’s only for a few minutes, foreplay can go a long way in generating lasting interests and experiences.
