couple foreplayFor years therapists have counseled the importance of foreplay in the sexual experience. Faced with a brief and unsatisfying sex life, couples are often advised of pre-intercourse activities to help enhance pleasure. While foreplay does prolong sexual relations, the amount it actually contributes to reaching orgasm appears to have been somewhat exaggerated. Data from a new study suggests that the length of time for normal penis-vagina intercourse is a much more significant factor than foreplay when determining overall sexual fulfillment.

Objectives and Results

Recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, this study examined the extent of association between three particular criteria (duration of foreplay, duration of penile-vaginal intercourse, and age) and the likelihood or consistency of partnered orgasm. It had been previously assumed that the probability of experiencing an orgasm was more determined by the duration of foreplay then by the duration of sex itself.

The results of the study tell quite a different story:

"In univariate analyses, consistency of partnered orgasm was more associated with penile–vaginal intercourse duration than with foreplay duration (consistency also correlated negatively with age). In multivariate analysis, foreplay ceased to be a significant correlate of partnered orgasm consistency..."

In other words, women are more likely to achieve orgasm during an extended period of sex than they are from foreplay. This appears to contradict earlier beliefs about the effectiveness of foreplay.

"When both sexual activity categories are examined in tandem on a population level, women's likelihood or consistency of partnered orgasm is associated with penile–vaginal intercourse duration, but not with foreplay duration. In contrast to the assumptions of many sex therapists and educators, more attention should be given to improve the quality and duration of penile–vaginal intercourse rather than foreplay."

Understanding The Implications

Before we repudiate sex therapists, it should be noted that this was a limited study - it consisted of 2,360 Czech women and was based on their own estimates. Data was not obtained through a monitored experiment but rather compiled from a written survey. This being the case, the results are hardly indicative of the entire female population and certainly subject to unintentional errors in memory or otherwise.

The study does, however, give great insight into the many complexities of sex. I for one wholeheartedly believe that foreplay is an important (and perhaps necessary) part of improving a relationship. But it should not be perceived as the end-all of sexual gratification.

Speaking from personal experience, I have come to recognize an obvious distinction in the level of arousal my partner displays while being orally pleased and when having intercourse. It's usually evidenced by the certain amount of hair pulling necessary to get me to replace my tongue with my penis.

While most women probably enjoy foreplay as much as they do penis-vagina intercourse, I have little doubt that when it comes right down to personal satisfaction, the latter is preferred. It's hardwired into the genes. Foreplay is fantastic, but natural urges demand some amount of penile penetration.

The problem that arises is when sex simply does not last long enough. Sure foreplay helps, but the real solution is to make intercourse itself last longer. Luckily today there are several top-rated methods that not only meet this requirement, but also serve to enlarge and strengthen the penis as well.

In the end, improving stamina and sexual performance are just parts of one common goal: the enhancement of the entire sexual experience. Using foreplay to spice up your love life is certainly valuable, but it will never replace the act of sex itself.
