Generally, foreplay is known as ‘sexual activity during the lead up to sex’ or ‘things that get you in the mood’.
But what is sex and why doesn’t it include the lead up?
When does foreplay end and sex begin?
Foreplay can mean lots of different things to different people, so I’ll be covering what falls into the ‘generic foreplay’ category, how creating different categories of sexual acts can be damaging, my own definition of foreplay and when I think it should happen (hint – it’s not always before!).
Often, when the term 'foreplay' gets thrown around, it's sold as ‘something that comes before "actual" sex’ (i.e. a penis penetrating a vagina – thanks heteronormative school sex-ed). So for a long time, I assumed it to be kissing, cuddling and hands/mouth on genitals.
I know this experience isn't uncommon, and I know that to a lot of people, that's what foreplay is.
We're over halfway through October, which can mean only one thing: Halloween is almost here!
And whether you've been counting down the days since last November 1st, or you're locking the doors and hunkering down to avoid trick-or-treaters, one thing's for sure: the internet is brimming with sexy Halloween costume possibilities.
We've packed our new Halloween shop full of flirty costumes and spooky-style toys, but how can a night associated with ghouls, ghosts, and wee demon beasties be erotic?
We're glad you asked.
Here, we've collected our favorite Halloween-esque role play scenarios to take your night from frightful to delightful (without a drop of fake blood in sight).
Don’t forget, before any role play, it’s always a good idea to agree on a safe word with your partner so that if things get too intense, you can cease play immediately.
If your significant other is the proud owner of a penis, it can be tempting to make foreplay all about oral sex – and it's easy to see why.
Blow jobs are fantastic. They are a huge turn-on for loads of men and after a sensational blow job, there's a good chance that any penetrative sex will last even longer and be more satisfying for both of you.
But man can not live on blow-jobs alone! Well, you could give it a damn good try, but just like anything you do all the time, it might get a little... samey.
Here are 5 other foreplay moves that are sure to drive him wild.
