Foreplay is so much more than just sex. There’s something so erotic about the anticipation leading to the grand finale! Here’s the scientific tea – foreplay keeps things intimate even outside the bedroom, says Dr. Jennifer Berman, a sexual health expert. It also forms an important part of establishing boundaries, trust, and consent.
Unsure about how to navigate foreplay beyond vanilla sex? We’ve got your back with our little Head or Tail game. We don’t have to tell you how important condoms are– both to reduce the risk of accidental pregnancies and to prevent STIs. But what if we told you your condom packet can spice up your sex life too?
Whenever you purchase a Get Down condom, you’ll be able to play a special game we call A Little Head or Tail. Just flip the condom wrapper, look at the colour it lands on, and choose a dare. Get kinkier with each condom – will you give or will you receive? We won’t spoil it for you. Get Down and see for yourself!
P.S. Get Down condoms are vegan, natural, and barely there. Our ethically sourced rubber will have you gasping responsibly!
Hit the Music
It has a special way of moving you. It can help put you at ease, especially if you’re just starting out getting frisky. If you’re nervous about making the first move, putting some sexy music on might help!
Put in the effort
Set up a sexy date night with some candles, wine, and roses. Dress up in something that makes you feel sexy (or even nothing at all!) Play some smooth, sultry music and let the tunes guide you.
If you’re working up the confidence to try this out with a partner, how about giving yourself some love first? Play some sexy music as you strip in front of the mirror. Be slow and deliberate – take in every stunning contour as you take each item of clothing off. Enjoy your body for the queen that you are. Confidence is sexy!
Psst. Your quest for the most bangin’ tunes ends here. Check out our Spotify playlist of some songs to get down too.

Take our word for it – sometimes the best porn is heard, not seen!
There’s something sooo sexy about skin-on-skin contact. In fact, research says that this is a great way to get intimate and connect, especially if your love language is physical touch. Using sensual oils to give your partner a massage is a winning way to get some. These oils contain some delectable blends that make your skin feel supple and sexy. Not only does it make foreplay feel relaxing and luxurious, but the sex is sure to be out of the world! While you give a massage, try to cover all the sweet spots. Start from your partner's feet and work your way up. Otherwise, you can give them a sexy back massage too. Some spots you shouldn't miss are behind the ears, at the base of the neck, the inner thighs, and around the chest. P.S. We can't forget them lady bits! Our fave is breast oils. These all-natural blends feel ah-mazing and improve circulation to your breasts.
The power of sexting
They say words have power. We can’t agree more! Sexting is an easy, almost instantaneous way to get ‘em in the mood. There are quite a few ways to go about it, so take your pick (or try them all!) Next time you hang out with your partner somewhere, sext them something raunchy when you’re in the same room. For instance, at a restaurant, at a meeting, or even while out grocery shopping. You can start simple, by complimenting your partner and telling them how hot they are. Then, move on to what you’d want to do to them. You get the gist!
Talk Dirty (aka Just ask for what you want.)
If you’re comfortable sexting dirty, how about talking dirty too? If your partner consents, rev up the sexy talk in the bedroom. Moan, sigh, and talk dirty (while some sexy music plays) Sensual play We don’t vibe or a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am. You deserve to be worshipped, girl! The more sensuous the sex is, the better.
Get all your senses involved
Here are a few ways to get started: Use blindfolds on each other. Once a partner is blindfolded, the other can play with sensual oils or some ice play. Run some ice along your partner’s body. You can hold a piece in your mouth while you go down on them, or gently trace their curves with a cube of ice. We’re getting goosebumps! Wear soft, sensuous fabric like lace or silk. Have your partner gently run feathers along your body, touching you ever-so-slightly. We’re a fan of eating food off each other! Be it chocolate, whipped cream, or berries, we know you’re the real snacc. (Food near your genitals is a no-no. We don’t want to upset the Ph down there!)
Talk it out
We’ve said it before and we'll say it again – confidence is sexy! The time has come for women to ask what they want. Sex is a two-way street. You deserve to receive as much pleasure as you give. Don’t hesitate to speak to your partner about what works for you and what doesn’t. Not only will this make the sex a million times better, but you’ll become more intimate with your partner. When you take ownership of your pleasure (by assertively discussing boundaries and pleasure), you’ll find that loving yourself is easy!
A Few Quickie Tips
- Consent is everything! It is an integral part of foreplay. Speak to your partner about what feels good and what doesn’t.
- Don’t shy away from telling your partner if something bothers you. If something makes you uncomfortable, it’s perfectly okay to pause midway, take a step back, and get comfortable.
- YOU MATTER!
- Don’t place food near your genitals. The infections are not worth it.
- Always remember to wrap it up before getting down – condoms keep things safe.
- You’re under no obligation to be anyone you’re not.
- Take foreplay at your own pace. Do whatever works for you!
