2. Know the three parts to foreplay
It goes without saying that good personal hygiene habits in a man are important to a woman; after all, our eyes see and our noses smell. If that’s taken care of, the next stage of foreplay is all in our minds: Most women who don’t feel emotionally connected to a partner won’t be interested in sex, says clinical psychologist Sandra Byers, co-author of the Canadian edition of Understanding Human Sexuality. Women connect with their partner through having a relationship that includes talking and doing things together. The third part, kissing and touching—but hey, hold your horses, no touching her breasts or genitals yet!—puts women in the mood to be aroused.
