Ladies do u perfer 4play or striaght to the point.Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Foreplay can be ongoing. It can start with dinner, dancing and drinks. It can be remembering a birthday or anniversary. My personal favorite is showering and making out while washing each other. No worries later about odors or too much flavor. There's something about smooth wet skin that gets my motor running. When younger I could give a woman 3 sessions in a night. I could do more through the day. But face it, older guys fade. Since we tend to do most of the physical work, as we age it gets harder to keep the stamina in good order. Still, quality can trump quantity. As some ladies have said, its part mental, and they way you make them feel emotionally is a biggy. Pay attention to what they like and deliver just that.

But that's different. BOB can do things a man can't.

Not if you give BoB to your guy and let him use it.

Yew.........try giving BOB a break for a few weeks.......and see if you can re-sensitize yourself to a man's touch.

if that doesn't help.......try getting a "Bullet" vibrator.....nice small one that will fit between the 2 of you while engaging in intercourse. I have one that is small enough to fit between my "lips" and my oh my sky rockets in flight!

Foreplay is like little bottle rockets, and straight to the point is like getting right to the illegal fireworks. The stuff that goes bang.. Id rather spend more time going bang

But sure some bottle rockets now and then can be fun too.

foreplay is usually a must for a lot of women. i think of men as a basic light switch, they are off or on. women are more like a dimmer light, you've gotta warm em up a bit before they are turned on. if that doesn't happen it's not as likely to be as good for them as it is for you.

A girlfriend once told me something along that line and it made me wonder if she meant she'd rather fool around for hours and never get to the actual sex part.

What i mean is, for guys Its is mostly about getting to the orgasm even if he knows no girl wants her man to only last 30 seconds. Even if he does everything in his power to prolong it and even if he enjoys doing so the Orgasm is still the point of sex for a man. This is not necessarily true for woman. I can have sex, not have an orgasm for whatever reason and still feel satisfied especially if my needs for intimacy are being met.

Sweetheart......orgasm isn't always the "point of sex" for all men.......
and I've only met 1 3osecond man in the last 25 years!

There are alot of men out there that once they get to a certain age that care far more about their woman's pleasure than their own. (God love 'em!)

Orgasm is more or less the end of sex for a man, so I'd much rather spend a lot of time getting there, usually longer than I get to spend.

I can only speak for myself sex to me is not all about the orgasm. It is being with someone close to you and shareing everything that comes with being with someone you have feelings for. The orgasm is like the iceing on the cake. Maybe I feel different than most guys but that is the way I feel.

I think many men have come to believe that ALL women have problems having orgasms that they think they've done a superb job if they can just give her one. I have also found the problem of men that seem to think once they've made me cum once that it's like a pass for them to cum themselves. The problem is, I cum very easily, have multiples very easily, and am not satisfied with one. Having just one is actually extremely frustrating for me, because as yew stated, I'm just getting started. If he can make me cum within 30 seconds (which happens 99% of the time), how does he think I'm even remotely near done? Personally, I need to be able to lose count to be satisfied. (ah....sometimes I miss my ex who wouldn't cum until I begged him to...)

After having talked to many of my girlfriends, I think the problem most women have with cumming is they can't get out of their own heads. They start to think about "why can't I cum", etc.... and then they're not going to because they're not in the moment. I've actually had several of my girlfriends THANK me for my advice on this, because by taking my advice on it, they were actually able to achieve their first Os. I've told them, get out of your head, enjoy the sensations, and don't be afraid to let go (ie. just go with the wave). I've told them to practice, practice, practice -- alone, with a man, it doesn't matter, so long as she discovers what does it for her.

Oh, and if all that doesn't help, usually a pillow placed under her hips (while in missionary) works....it helps to elevate the pelvis and realign where he's hitting so he hits THAT spot with every single thrust.

To make this relevant to the thread: of course foreplay is important. But we're not just talking about what happens immediately before sex. It's EVERYTHING that happens in the relationship. It's you telling her how much you care for her. It's you helping with the dishes (ok, it doesn't have to be the dishes, but I love when my man does them for me because he knows I hate doing them. It makes me feel cared for because he's doing them so I don't have to). It's you coming up behind her while she's cooking and hugging her and kissing her neck. It's you thanking her for everything she does. It's that closeness that you want to be touching her all the time (this doesn't necesssarily mean you're all over each other, but even just holding her hand while on the couch together can be sensual and build that closeness). It's the playfulness in your relationship. It's the importance of finding time for just the two of you. But most importantly, it's taking the time to make sure she knows she's loved and appreciated. Personally, I see my whole relationship with a man as foreplay, not just the few moments that happen right before intercourse.

I don't assume that. I don't know if a woman has problems with having an orgasm unless she tells me she does. Since I used to try to find out but gave up trying to read minds, I only assume that if a woman thought it was a problem, she'd tell me. If not, I assume she's happy.

Oh, and if all that doesn't help, usually a pillow placed under her hips (while in missionary) works....it helps to elevate the pelvis and realign where he's hitting so he hits THAT spot with every single thrust.

Along with a zillion other things one could try through trial and error. I think the pillow under the butt is familiar to most guys, so how about this. Instead of giving guys here, instructions on what works for you, tell women to tell the guys they're dating what works for them. It'll sure save a lot of time.

It's EVERYTHING that happens in the relationship. It's you telling her how much you care for her. It's you helping with the dishes (ok, it doesn't have to be the dishes, but I love when my man does them for me because he knows I hate doing them. It makes me feel cared for because he's doing them so I don't have to).

Look. At some point, a woman has to take charge of her own orgasm instead of needing someone to do the dishes, clean the bathroom and paint the house before she can get off. That's like me telling women that if they want their guys to not have problems with having an orgasm, women ought to get their guys a few beers while they watch monster truck wars and pet the dog earlier in the evening. (That wouldn't go over well, I'm sure.) If I have to get up early to do chores so I can start getting her warmed up at breakfast for sex later that night, she's going to need to invest in BoB while I find someone a little less particular.

Hence why I said "many". There are, thankfully some men who do realize every woman is different, but sadly, I've found too many that think "oh, she's had one, I can cum now."

I actually don't use the pillow hardly at all, because I have NEVER had a problem achieving multiple Os. In fact, I don't think I've EVER had sex and NOT had at least one orgasm. I wasn't telling the men here how to do it, I was stating advice I've given my girlfriends about how to achieve it because there's been a few women here who've stated it takes them awhile. I fully agree that EVERY person should be able to tell their partners what they like/don't like.

I wasn't talking about an orgasm here. I'm not going to cum from watching my guy do the dishes, but I WILL be excited and want to jump him out of gratitude. I said FOREPLAY isn't just what happens in the bedroom FOR ME. I see my entire relationship as foreplay. I see doing things for each other as foreplay. I see showing your partner CONSIDERATION and GRATITUDE as part of foreplay. When my partner does something NICE for me (like doing the dishes because he knows I hate doing them), IT TURNS ME ON. When my man does something nice for me, I want to make sure I show him my appreciation. That does NOT mean I expect my man to be a slave for me, because I don't. But if I've spent the last hour or more cooking dinner and he eats it and then goes and sits in the living room, leaving all the clean up for me, I'm hardly going to be in the mood for pleasuring him. 90% of what turns me on happens in my head before we even get to the bedroom. If I'm feeling taken for granted and under-appreciated, then I'm not going to want to GIVE more, whereas if I feel cared for and know my contributions to the relationship are valued, then I'm going to want to continue giving.

It's not a matter of being particular, it's a matter of recognizing that relationships require people to give of themselves. I appreciate the little things my partner does for me and reciprocate just as much. I see telling your partner they look beautiful and SHOWING them you care as an important part of a relationship. To me, an attraction to my partner, and my pleasure, is most definitely linked to how he treats me. If I'm the only one giving in our relationship, I'm not going to want to give in anymore in the bedroom, whereas, if he reciprocates and helps in the household, then hot damn. If your goal is just to achieve an orgasm, then it's only partly physical....like it or not, there IS a mental aspect to it.

If you think it's okay to take a woman for granted and expect her to do everything in the household, then good luck with your search. This doesn't mean YOU do everything, but that you SHARE responsibilities. One of my exes, I worked full-time, came home cooked dinner, did all the laundry, took care of our child, did all the grocery shopping, did all the dishes myself, did EVERY chore in the house, and all the yardwork, whereas he worked part time then went out with his buddies and I was supposed to get excited about being with him HOW? When the household chores aren't divided evenly, eventually one partner will start to build resentments against the other, and there is nothing that's a bigger O killer. If both partners work full-time, then BOTH partners should share taking care of the household duties evenly. In no way did I mean to imply the man should do everything, cause they shouldn't. But don't you think, if you know your woman has a particular thing she really doesn't like to do, that she'd want to show you how grateful she is if you do it for her?

That works just fine for the women who already know what works for them. And many women do fall into that category. But there are a large number of women out there who have never had the chance to discover what will work for them. Sad, isn't it?

So speak up, ladies! Tell your lover what you want, what you need, and if you don't yet know, tell him you are open to some new experiences.

You're backpeddaling. Sharing responsibilities is what normal couples do in relationships, so it's ridiculous to call that foreplay.

If you think it's okay to take a woman for granted and expect her to do everything in the household, then good luck with your search.

Look up ``logical fallacy.'' Just because I expect women to be participants in their own sexual satisfaction doesn't mean I think women should do all of the household chores. I can't imagine what kind of twisted logic you must have used to come up with such tortured reasoning.

When the household chores aren't divided evenly, eventually one partner will start to build resentments against the other, and there is nothing that's a bigger O killer.

You're just babbling.

That is exactly what barefootkitten means. FOREPLAY starts WAY before the sex.

No, barefootkitten just wanted an excuse to rant about men who don't do anything around the house. I have a difficult time relating to that, since I do things around the house. This last weekend, I even did some repairs on my fiancee's mother's house. It's not foreplay. It's just doing things because that's what relationships are about. Barefootkitten is trying to take the abnormal as normal to backpedal on her oriinal statements.

Now maybe that doesn't work for men but it sure works for a lot of women.

That's unfortunate. For once, it would be nice to have sex just because my SO wants to get laid without the spectre of whether or not I folded the underwear getting in the way.

Never understood why someone would withhold their own pleasure just because their partner didn't help do the dishes?
To me......that is using sex as a weapon.
and if you think not helping with household chores is a big O killer......what do you think your man thinks about you using sex to train him to be a better relationship partner?

Sex is when you put aside all the petty little things that happened during the day and focus on the intimate part of your relationship.
If you withhold sex for every little thing your partner does wrong in a day......you might as well become a nun!

It depends on the woman. Sometimes I like foreplay other times I like to just have crazy sex depending our mood and what starts it. I am not much into oral. Don't crucify me for that comment. Like others have said foreplay can start way before sex. A wink, flirting, or taking my face in your hands and passionately kissing me will all get me in the mood.

I'm not backpeddling at all. Perhaps "normal" couples do share, but in my experience, and according to most studies, responsibilities aren't split evenly, and women are still spending almost twice as much time doing household chores than men. http://www.statistics.gov.uk/cci/nugget.asp?id=288

Foreplay is what you make of it. Some people consider it to only include the kissing, petting, etc... that happens right before sex. FOR ME, I consider my entire relationship with someone as foreplay. When I'm happy in my relationship, I'm constantly wanting to jump my man. And when my man does something nice for me, then it makes me want him even more. Personally, I think it's ridiculous to tell someone else what they can and cannot consider as something that turns them on. My man doing something nice for me, turns ME on.


When the household chores aren't divided evenly, eventually one partner will start to build resentments against the other, and there is nothing that's a bigger O killer.

It's not babbling, it's speaking from personal experience.

This last weekend, I even did some repairs on my fiancee's mother's house. It's not foreplay. It's just doing things because that's what relationships are about. Barefootkitten is trying to take the abnormal as normal to backpedal on her oriinal statements.
Don't presume to think you know anything about what I want. Again, FOR ME, I see doing nice things for your partner as part of foreplay. Just because you do things around the house doesn't mean that all, or even most, men do. If your woman isn't appreciative about the things you do and want to show you that appreciation, than I feel sorry for you. I know, FOR ME, when my man does something for me, I SHOW him how grateful I am because it excites ME. Just because you don't see the sexual in the everyday, doesn't mean others of us don't.


That's unfortunate. For once, it would be nice to have sex just because my SO wants to get laid without the spectre of whether or not I folded the underwear getting in the way.

You're completely missing the point. It's not about the clothes being folded or the dishes being done, it's about my partner doing something to be nice because he knows I don't want to do it. I'm going to have sex with my man for the sake of having sex anytime I want to, but when he's done something nice for me, hot damn, watch out, because I'm going to go above and beyond to make sure he's as happy as he made me.

Good grief, I never said I wouldn't have sex with him if he didn't do them. I said that when he does them, it makes me want him even more.

I have NEVER used sex to "train" anybody to do anything. He's going to get laid whether the dishes are done or not, but it makes me extra excited to know he's done something kind for me.


Sex is when you put aside all the petty little things that happened during the day and focus on the intimate part of your relationship.
If you withhold sex for every little thing your partner does wrong in a day......you might as well become a nun!
Again, I never advocated withholding sex as a "punishment" for not doing chores. I stated it excites me to have a partner who does kind things for me. Maybe people should put things aside, but if, as was the case with my child's father, I worked all day outside the home, then came home and had to do everything inside the home while he had only worked a few hours that day (or not at all) and refused to help with the household chores, I frankly was just too tired to bother with giving more by the end of the day. On the other hand, with my most recent ex, I worked all day, as did he, then came home and we took care of the chores together, not only did the chores get done faster, but I certainly had more energy and inclination to have sex and please him. It was never a matter of withholding something, it was a matter of being so physically and mentally exhausted from working from 8am at work to 10pm at home, that I just didn't have any more to give.

For me, having a partner that shares in the household maintenance is a turn-on. As I stated before, I see every moment in my relationships as foreplay. The chore thing is just a small part of it. It's also those little looks you give each other, the slightest touch of the hand while sitting on the couch, the playful banter and loving teasing that goes on, and the fantasizing of what you're going to do to each other the next time you see each other. FOR ME, foreplay is all mental, which is probably why with my men, I cum every single time, multiple times without much effort, because they've already turned me on WAY before we hit the sheets.
