If sex is on your mind, keep it there.
On this week's "How To," we tell you why foreplay is not just about jumping under the sheets, but also about keeping foreplay on your mind before sex.
A 2009 survey found that Canadians spend an average of 37 minutes on foreplay and intercourse per sex session, at least two minutes more than Americans do, according to Macleans.ca.
Even with all this time, who says you can't use a little push? The video below lays out seven steps on how to increase foreplay while keeping your partner in mind. It also shares tips on how to spice things up in the bedroom (or wherever you choose) with ice cubes and hot towels.
But will this video help you reach the 'big O' -- even though Canadian women could use some help in this department? Probably not. The video explains intercourse can lead to more orgasms as opposed to relying solely on foreplay.
