I describe foreplay from this male perspective: Women enjoy foreplay, and men only have to learn the steps of each woman’s progression that leads to intercourse.
Women know this, so I’ll state the obvious: He starts with high energy and expectations of how far he can go. Also, he starts with little restraint and knowledge of how far he should go. It’s up to her to suppress and divert his sexual drive, if she prefers to use foreplay to her long-range advantage instead of lying back to enjoy immediate gratification.
Foreplay is a woman’s wonderful tool to qualify a man for marriage. Few things push a man more to reveal his true nature, his worthiness for her. And nothing better separates Marrying Man pursuing her from the other guys pursuing sex.
A man is as romantic as required to initiate foreplay and conquest. At every level of foreplay, if he can’t advance, he shifts back into romance and sweet-talk mode.
Women expect a romantic interlude to precede foreplay. It arouses their heart and prepares them for physical arousal.
A woman’s toughest challenge is to identify, define, and consciously decide exactly what temptations she will allow and can draw and hold a line that enables some foreplay but prevents intercourse. No further will she go! Will power is harder, but it works better for her than hopes and dreams and good intentions.
So, smarter females use foreplay to stimulate romance. They make hard-headed and hard and fast conscious decisions long before they are talked or led too deeply into foreplay. They learn to manage foreplay to stimulate romance that they prefer and defer intercourse that men prefer.
