20 Sep How important is duration of foreplay?
To foreplay or not to foreplay? This is the question.
It has been asserted that women’s likelihood or consistency to orgasm as a result of sexual activities with a partner is determined by duration of foreplay, but not by duration of penile–vaginal intercourse.
In a representative sample, 2,360 women reported their consistency of orgasm with a partner (from “never” to “almost every time”), and estimates of their typical durations of foreplay and of penile–vaginal intercourse.
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.

Well, although fore-playing do have positive emotional benefits, if you want more consistent orgasms, work along with your partner to improve your game.
So… foreplay and improve your intercourse!
