    Default Foreplay is overrated?

    Foreplay may be overrated according to a survey based on 2,300 women, which found that it has little or no significance when it comes to the likelihood of having an orgasm.


    The duration of intercourse 16.2 minutes on average is the clincher, according to the research. The findings suggest that sex therapists, who emphasise the value of foreplay, may have that been getting it wrong.
    "In contrast to the assumptions of many sex therapists and educators, more attention should be given to improve the quality and duration of intercourse rather than foreplay," say Professor Stuart Brody of the University of the West of Scotland, and Professor Peter Weiss, from Charles University, Prague.
    In the study, reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the academics quizzed a representative sample of 2,360 Czech women of all ages about details of their sex lives, including orgasmic consistency with a partner along with estimated duration of foreplay and intercourse.
    Results show that for the women in the study, the average duration of foreplay was 15.4 minutes, and intercourse, 16.2 minutes.
    The researchers point out that 16.2 minutes is considerably longer than reported in American studies, where intercourse was found to last on average seven minutes.
    They added: "It could be that this reflects, a greater appreciation of intercourse and sensuality by Europeans than by Americans."
    The researchers looked at frequency of orgasm in the women, and foreplay and intercourse data. They concluded the links with foreplay were insignificant. Instead they suggest that the longer intercourse lasts, the greater the probability of orgasm for the women.
    "This was a large number of women and the results are robust," says Professor Brody. "Sex therapists and educators put the overwhelming emphasis on foreplay, but they need to be guided by the evidence which shows that it is not the case.
    "Intercourse is significantly more important. Our findings should lead researchers, educators, and clinicians to reconsider the contributions of foreplay and intercourse."

    I have to agree. The longer the duration of intercourse the more likely I am to have an orgasm. However, foreplay is hella fun and is not neglected. The problem I run into is that the longer and more involved the foreplay, the less likely I am to get a good long banging. Hubby can get too excited during foreplay and I get shortchanged. I usually rob Paul to get paid by Peter.

    Foreplay is great, but I don't usually need it.

    Foreplay is the best part. While I usually enjoy intercourse (when the guy knows what he's doing), it's never an orgasmic experience for me. Wish it were different but it is what it is.

    I'm not so into foreplay. It's okay. I just prefer intercourse itself and don't need much prep time.

    there reaches a point of making out and molesting where it gets boring, and you need to fuck.

    ^^I agree. I just need the whole package. An occasional "quicky" is fine but really piss me off if they threaten to become the norm.

    They can try to defend Wham, bam, thank you ma'am all they want. I still need a bit of a tweak.

    foreplay is great and all, it's not exactly overrated but what is is the importance it's been given, they make it sound like foreplay is what women really enjoy whereas intercourse is more for the guy's pleasure.
    i love foreplay but i seldom want it to last all that long. i get better orgasms from intercourse anyway. i guess it all depends on your body and whether you have better orgasms from clitoral stimulation or from intercourse. but for me, foreplay is the appetiser and intercourse is definitely the main dish.
