While foreplay may be the apt way to set the ball rolling during physical intimacy, guess what appeals most to women after the act? The perfect finish to sexual intimacy is just being cuddled,the study revealed.
In a survey involving more than 5,600 Japanese women, almost 50 pct of the respondents revealed that they wanted longer continuation of intimate interactions with their partner after sex.
In contrast to 44 percent said that they wanted longer foreplay, while 38 percent of women said they wanted longer actual intercourse.
Despite this 38.8 percent said that they had never discussed their favourite sex practises with their partner.
"Women consider longer foreplay and after play to be more important," the NZPA quoted the study as saying
"Suggesting women would benefit by being more forthright in expressing their sexual desires to their partners."
Furthermore, over 30 percent of the women had rated their partners performance in bed as either "very selfish" (6.9 percent), or "selfish" (25.5 percent).
The new study is published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
