With premature ejaculation, why use foreplay before intercourse?

Ian Kerner, PhD
Sexual Health
A concept I often recommend to couples is “intercourse plus,” that is, intercourse that’s preceded by foreplay techniques including stimulating her with your hand, your mouth, and/or a vibrator. Studies have shown that the vast majority of women do not experience orgasm from intercourse alone, but rather from assisted intercourse or “intercourse plus.” For couples dealing with premature ejaculation, though, it’s the opposite: focusing on foreplay as the main sexual activity and the chief way she’s going to climax. Then you top off all that with some intercourse -- literally. So it’s “foreplay plus.”
