The widespread perception says that men just want to get on with it, when it comes to sex. And surprisingly, you may believe that all your partner wants from you is doing the deed. But ladies, Your partner loves foreplay as much as you do! They may not say it out loud but they too enjoy the build up. And secretly crave foreplay.

Well technically, more foreplay means more sex! And that’s worth a deal for both you and your partner. If you lament that he plunges into penetrative sex way before your lady bits are ready, why don’t you make the first move?

Validating this thought, Dr Tanushree Pandey Padgaonkar, obstetrician and gynaecologist, shared a video on foreplay for men. Dr Pandey, who has her Instagram alias as ‘Gynae guru’, often shares unique and quirky content around sexual taboos and modern day sex problems.

This time, she shared a video on how your partner may also need some foreplay. Cutting out the viewpoint that men just want to plunge in genital sex, Dr Padgaonkar says men perform better in bed if they are caressed and touched.

Is foreplay only desired by women? Or can your partner benefit from foreplay? If you have had questions like this, Dr Padgaonkar’s reel video answers them all.

Here are some benefits you may receive as your partner receives foreplay from you:

  1. Indulging in foreplay with your partner during or before the sex ensures sturdy and long lasting erection in bed! If not for him, do it for yourself!
  2. If your partner is dealing with erectile dysfunction, indulging in foreplay may help. A little sexual stimulation will make him comfortable and help with the errection too.
