The Kama Sutra: Foreplay

The Kama Sutra is not just about sex. The second instalment of Health24s guide to the Kama Sutra focuses on the arts of fellatio and cunnilingus, and how to improve your technique.

Episode 2: Foreplay

The Kama Sutra is not just about sex. It also outlines the importance of foreplay. The second instalment of Health24’s guide to the Kama Sutra focuses on the arts of fellatio and cunnilingus, designed to prepare a couple for an evening of passionate love-making.

Many people, especially women, find oral sex immensely pleasurable. Learning the subtle arts the Kama Sutra has to offer in this regard will help elevate your performance in the bedroom, and help to keep your partner more than happy.

This may especially apply to those men who are less lovingly inclined, and who tend to roll over once spent. The teachings of the Kama Sutra help us to realise that a woman's sexual needs and desires differ from a mans. This is a vital piece of information to consider when engaging in love-making with your partner.

Good love-making is about not being selfish. It is about learning and respecting what your partner wants and needs to be satsified, and supplying exactly that.

A relationship with a sound understanding of this core concept is set to do well, and will certainly be alive with countless nights of passion. Take note of the following to start improving your bedroom skills today.
