Women's real desire: Afterplay

Forget foreplay, it's what comes after sex that matters most to women.

A survey of more than 5,600 women in Japan shows almost half (49 per cent) want a longer continuation of intimate interactions with their partner after sex.

This compares to 44 per cent who said they wanted longer foreplay and the 38 per cent of women who said they wanted longer actual intercourse.

The survey also quizzed the women on how open they were with their partner about sex, and 38.8 per cent said they had never discussed their favourite sex practises with their partner.

"Women consider longer foreplay and after play to be more important," the study, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, concludes.

"Suggesting women would benefit by being more forthright in expressing their sexual desires to their partners."

More than 30 per cent of the women also rated their partners performance in bed as either "very selfish" (6.9 per cent), or "selfish" (25.5 per cent).

The survey results were released at the European and International Societies for Sexual Medicine, which is underway in Brussels. [source]
