Tips & Statistics

Foreplay is about creating desire in the mind and body by slowly awakening sexual stimulation through pleasure. When done well it can stimulate couples in a way that adds to intimacy, decreases stress, enhances health and of course increases the physical pleasure of orgasms.

Sex Tips

Foreplay Tips

  • Stimulate the scalp through head massage and hair play-
    Your scalp is rich in nerve endings which makes playing with your lover's hair a big turn on for many people.

  • Stimulate feet and legs-
    There are a variety of reflexology and acupressure points in the feet so providing even a short foot massage can relax and entice your lover. You can slowly work your way up the calves and thighs by using your hands and mouth to stimulate your lover.

  • Stimulate your lover's ears-
    Ears also contain a rich amount of acupressure points and massaging ear lobes as well as nibbling and kissing them can provide intense sensual stimulation. In fact, some men and women have orgasms just through ear stimulation.

  • Hand massage-
    With technology taxing our hands quite a bit we often carry a great deal of strain in them. Providing massage to the muscles in the hands and up the arms can be a delicious way to stimulate and relax at the same time.

  • Back massage & stimulation-
    Stimulating the back through massage, kissing, licking and even using feathers, whips and back massagers can be one of the most stress relieving and exciting ways to start a sexual experience. Simple stimulation to the back can create a sense of being nurtured and increase sexual arousal. Adding massage oil that is scented or using massage oil candles is a wonderful way to increase stimulation to the senses through sensation, scent and even flavors. For more information, make sure to see our article on sensual massage techniques.

  • Stimulate the stomach-
    Having foods that seduce the senses such as chocolate is a great way to stimulate the brain as it increases serotonin. Feeding one another strawberries dipped in chocolate is certainly seductive, but if you just want the health effects rather than the fat, sugar and dairy then try having a teaspoon of Organic Raw Cacao Nibs in a smoothie or simply by eating them. They are bitter but you will feel the stimulation from them in just a matter of minutes and the effects will last about two hours. See more foods that enhance sex.

  • Stimulate armpits, breasts/chest and the neck-
    These areas are sensitive and can offer sensual sensations when massaged, kissed and licked. You can use stimulating massage oils and lubricants on these areas as well for added sensations.

Average Foreplay- 19.7 Minutes

Durex Condoms surveys more than 350,000 people from 41 countries around the world about their sexual behavior. From vibrator use to who gets crowned the sexiest female celebrity in the world, the folks at Durex seem to have all bases covered in their Global Sex Survey. Most interesting, perhaps, is the question of how much time couples across the world dedicate to foreplay. Here's what the survey found:

  • On average, people across the world spend 19.7 minutes on foreplay, with men claiming to spend 20.2 minutes and women spending 18.8 minutes.

  • The younger age groups take the longest -- 21.6 minutes for 16- to 20-year-olds and 19.1 minutes for 21- to 24-year-olds, compared to 17.3 minutes for people over 55.

  • The British spend the most time on foreplay (22.5 minutes), followed closely by the Germans (22.2), the Irish (21.8) and the Spanish (21.7). Thais spend the least amount of time (11.5 minutes).

  • Also ranking pretty low were Hong Kong (14.2) and the Vietnamese (15.2).

  • The United States ranked No. 17 out of 41 countries. The survey says Americans spend an average of 19.7 minutes on pre-intercourse canoodling.
