Are you’re plowing forward to the main course, or do you enjoy an appetizer, salad, and some wine first?
Oh, if we were only talking about food—but we’re not. Well, some eating may be involved…
Adam & Eve, and we don’t mean the Biblical figures, surveyed 1,000 adults about the importance of foreplay.
Over 76% of the respondents (76% of males and 77% of females) said foreplay was a very important part of the sex act, while 19% (21% of the males and 18% of the females) said it was slightly important. Only 4% of those polled (3% of the males and 5% of the females) said foreplay was not important at all (These folks probably enjoy a frozen meal directly from the freezer).
"For most people, foreplay is the appetizer or opening act to the main event," says Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve.
And the optimal pre-game time is between 15 and 20 minutes. That’s half an episode of “Stranger Things”…
"Depending on the situation, stage of relationship and individual preferences, foreplay can range from kissing to massage to toy use," says Skyler.
And we’re quite certain Adam & Eve has some items to assist in your one-on-one time.
P.S. Isn’t there a Boston song entitled "Foreplay/Long Time"? Totally has nothing to do with this story, but perhaps we should change the lyrics to fit:
It’s been such a long time
I think I should be goin’ (down), yeah
And time doesn’t wait for me (because I have a boner now)
Sail on, on a distant highway (named 69)…
