Kissing is more than a fun part of foreplay — it's connecting with one another physically, showing affection and setting the mood for a night of intimacy and romance.
No one could argue that a great sexual encounter requires some degree of inspiration to get things going. The catchall term for this is “Foreplay.” But what is foreplay really? Is it words of endearment, spicy texting before you meet, a great massage, two shots of tequila, a house full of lit candles and Erotic Moods playing on the stereo, skinny dipping in a cold lake, or a playful spanking? The answer is, “All of the above and then some!” But how do we know what works for who, how much and when?

Men aren’t really sophisticated when it comes to getting turned on; often enough just looking at a great body is enough to get us going. You see, unlike women, we respond incredibly well to visual stimuli and that’s what you, as a woman, need to take advantage of, if you want to get a guy turned on.
