Better orgasm

A recent study published in the Journal of Sex Research had male and female participants masturbate to orgasm while being monitored. Both sexes reported that their orgasms were more pleasurable when there was a greater build-up of sexual arousal and desire beforehand.

Increases intimacy

Foreplay connects you and your partner on a deeper level. It is much more intimate to get to know each other’s bodies before having sex. Intimacy is always important, even if it isn’t on an emotional level, but just on a sexual level.

Better stimulation

Nothing is worse than when you are with someone who kisses you a few times and then proceeds to try to have sex with you. First, you are not going to be wet enough to have sex, which can make it quite painful and uncomfortable. Sex will never feel great if you are not stimulated.

Foreplay is a great way to learn

 There will always be something that you are good at; whether it be oral, or using your hands. Use that to your advantage to impress your partner, right before you finish him off with the actual intercourse. Also, you may discover something that you really love during foreplay, which can help get you off more easily when you actually have sex.
