Definition of foreplay
Foreplay can be defined as a set of intimate physical and psychological acts between partners that increase sexual arousal in both partners.

What happens in foreplay?
Foreplay plays an important role in women. In men, the erection may occur with visual effects but in women, sex begins in the brain. A woman may not need quick sex unless it’s a desire. She expects slow foreplay that can make her feel comfortable, will open her, and prepare her for sexual intercourse.
Foreplay lubricates the vagina which is important for comfortable and painless sexual intercourse. The lubricated vagina allows smooth penetration of the penis without causing any tissue tears. Foreplay leads to sexual arousal in women, causing an increase in blood flow to various body parts, it stimulates the nerves in the genitals and swells the surrounding tissues with a rush of blood due to dilated blood vessels. Women can have a good orgasm with good foreplay. The duration of foreplay can have a significant effect on a woman’s pleasure.
In men erection can occur with a visual sight and foreplay also does the same thing. With sexual stimulus, the blood vessels are dilated for extra blood to rush into the penile tissues and blood vessels. This causes erection of the penis. Some men are afraid of losing an erection or are cautious of their performance as a result instead of enjoying the foreplay they jump into sexual intercourse.
Conclusion Sexual activity or foreplay is something that can help both partners have a healthy long-term relationship. As it keeps both the partners physically and psychologically connected.
