We all know how important foreplay is to a healthy and fulfilling sex life. So important, in fact, that we've put together a list of tips to build up enough sexual tension to make the walls come crumbling down. Here are some sexy tricks and techniques for turning each other on, even before you reach the bedroom. 

1. Take your time undressing each other.

Touch everywhere. As you remove his shirt or her dress, brush your hand lightly along their skin. As you remove pants or stockings, be sure to caress each leg. Consider doing a strip tease.

2. Breathe together.

Matching your partner's breathing will take you deeper into bliss than any new sex move.

3. Take the time to give a full body massage.

Be sure to get to those places your massage therapist never would, and be sure to mix in plenty of kissing and licking.

4. Get loud.

Quiet sex is only for when they kids are home. Great sex is vocal. If you hold back, you're putting a damper on the intensity of your sex life. Moan, scream, giggle — do it into a pillow if you're worried about the neighbors calling the police.

5. Don't be shy about dirty talking.

Compliment her on how amazing she smells, looks, feels and makes you feel. Adding this verbal component to foreplay can greatly enhance the experience.

6. Maintain strong eye contact.

Have eye contact during your conversations about what you like. Watch your partner's eyes as they cascade across your body, taking in your movements. Notice how they widen, how pupils change, how lashes flutter, and how the tension builds as you both become more excited.

7. Use props or sex toys.

Playing with them can enhance your mutual enjoyment in ways you never thought possible.

8. Don't take it personally if they aren't aroused.

We all have moments when our bodies or our minds aren't ready for sex. Empathy is much sexier.

9. Tease each other.

Bring your partner to the brink of climax and then back off, promising more later. Do this again and again.

10. Clean up by taking a shower together.

You'll be pleasing each other and you'll both smell great. Maybe even great enough for round two?
