It’s unfathomable that anyone still has to remind men that women need time to warm up; that foreplay is important. This has been talked about for as long as I’ve been sexually active — many, many years! I can feel aroused pretty quickly with James or someone I really know well and like because the foreplay starts in my head before we even touch, but anyone else better take their time!
