  • For most women it is. Guys need about 90 seconds of friction in the right place and they are good. In my experience, women don't like the intensity of feeling that direct clitoral stimulation offers until they go through a longer period of foreplay. There is something indescribably beautiful about a woman's arousal. From the goosebumps she feels at the first touch to the sexual flush over her cheeks, breasts and neck, the stiffening of her nipples, the subconscious, then semi-conscious opening of her lips, thighs and labia, the slickness between her legs to the rhythm of her pelvis moving the raggedness of her breath the build up arching of her back as she desires more friction until the wave of desire building finally breaks and her hips start spasmodically moving during orgasm. Shit, why would you want to pass that up. I had trouble even writing about it. Anyway, I guess of you use enough lube fucking would be possible but what would you get out of it?

  • Foreplay isn't important, it's vital, critical, mandatory for hot sex. One exception is a couple who have the occasional quickie.

    • Quickies are totally different!! Those are just about horny passion, not loving!! Sometimes she just needs that 'release' with the harsh, just passionate orgasm, at different times, when stressed, maybe?

    • @JackSmy Or just really, really horny and willing, in my case, to pay for the pleasure with some pain: a hot, hard bare bottom spanking and a rough, ruthless butt fucking. She loves that.

  • Usually yes, but it doesn't have to be physical touching. I can get turned on with an in-depth conversation with a guy about something profound. Nerd's can be sexy.

    Hot guy eye candy can also turn things up.

  • Yes it makes the sex more intimate, and special... also it helps the girl get more lubricated naturally.

  • Yes, especially to make penetration easier (penetration can be painful if a woman isn't wet enough)

  • necessary, no
    important, yes

    You sorta need to get each other in the mood, a little seduction goes a long way

  • It should Be Here, dear. xx

  • Naw.. don’t even heed to touch- just cut a hole in the sheet 👍🏻

    Lol yes is IS at least to me 🤨😁☺️

    • I honestly think I will never be a “quickie” type - I e he gets off and I don’t 🤦‍♀️ Anyhow I like touch too Much. It’s magical. I don’t see any point to sex without a lot of out extra curricular contact. 💜

    • 69 is a must Its just starts the fire mutually and everything has much more passion

  • Well considering most women won't get aroused without it, I'll say yes.

  • Foreplay is the necessity just like the guy below says it is the absolute core of great sex if you're wanting to just stick it in pump and little bit and get out then you don't need foreplay and she don't need to be in the bedroom with you

  • OMG YES!! Who would not want the foreplay? It can be so diverse, and not seeming like 'fore-play' like just cooking together, but touching, holding, and maybe showing her how to cut carrots, and not cut he fingers!!
    Great fore-play can be just simple things when you are close, and love any reason to touch, and kiss!!

    • Perfect answer! Holding back PDA makes for wild nights.

    • @sjoes006 Why holding back PDAs? I love kissing her and love when she wears short skirts and tight yoga pants!! What's wrong with kissing, holding, and being so in love, that you don't care that people see? Doesn't it excite you, when you are with your partner, and they just love kissing and holding, and being close, in public? Isn't it like the BEST kind of PRE-Foreplay?

    • I put others in front of myself on this. Don’t want them to be uncomfortable

    • Show All
  • Oh definitely got to make sure your both warmed up and ready to go.
    Only exception is if your both super turned on and ready to rip each others clothes off!

  • Absolutely necessary 😋

  • Foreplay is necessary before sex, unless it's a hot quickie.

  • My ideal is foreplay for her, then intercourse and then afterplay for me where she continues to edge and tease me. That way we begin with a focus on teasing her and getting her ready. Then i get to fuck her and last the longest since i am not already close to orgasm, and then instead of cumming inside of her she can tease and drive me wild afterwards. Its also such a nice progression of power where we start with her being completely submissive and then taking over when dominating me.

  • Absolutely!

  • Absolutely. Setting aside all of the emotional requirements that make sex happen just think about the physical requirements that foreplay provides. He Hass to be hard obviously the harder the better and she needs to be wet and ready and open to except the male organ inside her body for play makes all of that happen

    • I’m wondering how many said “no” are virgins? My guess is , most of them. I wonder if you can do a follow up survey?

    • Since we seem to have lots of birhinsvwhobopine as if they’re ecperts

    • Lots of virgins who opine as if they’re experts

  • Lol of course it is, unless everyone involved just goes from 0-100 like a ferarri, but for most people that's not how it works.

    • Some seem to no problem lol I’m in awe 😐

  • It varies from person to person. My girlfriend and I have sex with and without foreplay and we both cum either way so I don't think it's very important

  • It's preferred i rather get lost in her and make it last as much as possible before i stick it in her

  • I think it's important and lots of fun.

  • It's easy to get the idea that foreplay isn't important if someone watches a lot of porn. But in REAL life, foreplay is at least 80% of the whole experience.

  • Yes 100%

  • Not always (or at least not a lot) if there's been a big buildup before hand and both already very turned on, but in general yes of course!! That's half the fun!!! Maybe it's just me, some guys are selfish and just hammer away at a girl while fucking, I want to touch, tease, pleasure, feel and make her orgasm in ways she never has before!!

  • Yes very important
