I see on movies and here people talking about 4play. I wanted to know what this meant.
Foreplay usually comes before intercourse. Foreplay can include a lot of different things, like kissing, sharing fantasies, or touching one another’s genitals. The purpose of foreplay is to add to sexual excitement, and, especially for women, to help prepare the body for intercourse by increasing vaginal lubrication.Outercourse is almost the same as foreplay. Both add to sexual excitement and pleasure. And both can lead to orgasm. The difference is that foreplay is meant to lead to intercourse. Outercourse may also add to a couple’s desire to take a risk and have intercourse. Couples who use outercourse for birth control must not give in to that impulse. Be careful — don’t turn outercourse into foreplay unless you are ready to use another form of birth control during intercourse.
