What is foreplay? One can call it a prelude to a sexual intercourse. It is also about intimacy - emotional intimacy between two partners. An intimacy that implies a certain level of confidence and trust between the two partners.
Art of foreplay
Creating an atmosphere – What is also referred to as "setting the mood". The art of foreplay as it is termed is when a partner takes the time well beforehand to focus on building an atmosphere of rest, relaxation, anticipation and romance. It would involve removing distractions, stresses and interruptions. Foreplay is the opportunity to practice authentic care – focusing on your partner's pleasures. Just like a violinist plays his instrument to a climax of musical beauty, two people play over each other, ever so gently, ever so skillfully, to bring them to crescendos of pleasure.
Types of foreplay
Foreplay can be verbal or non-verbal. Verbally it could include compliments, subtle comments with double meanings and intimate conversations. Non-verbally, foreplay can include provocative clothing, winking, gazing into each other's eyes.
Why this discussion of foreplay?
Maan and Geet are entering a new phase in their relationship. A marriage which is a union of mind, body and souls. They are learning new things about each other on a more personal level. They are discovering each other every moment. Why not discuss the ways in which they can discover each other more intimately?
1. Talk and tease - The power of suggestion can be as great as the act itself most of the times. Describing what one wants to do, where and how are enough to get your partner to visualize it easily and eagerly.
2. Getting started in public - Foreplay need not be restricted to the bedroom or inside the four walls. Holding hands in the office, sharing a private lunch, or just catching a kiss in the middle of meetings is enough to keep the flame alive. Hiding sweet sexy notes or making use of technology by sending a few incomplete sensual messages or mails allowing your partner to fill in the rest will let the imagination run wild.
3. Strip Down - Maan doing his tai-chi without his shirt on or Geet in a towel right after her bath with wet hair can set at atmosphere of anticipation and desire..
4. Touch - Touch is one of the most extensively used techniques in foreplay. Touch could be in the form of body painting to explore and stimulate a partner's body or in the form of massages. Sensuality is at its best when rubbed in. A massage with scented oils in a stress free, relaxed atmosphere will remain with him/her for a long time. These massages could be comforting or sensuous based on the situation and can easily highten the senses.
5. Kissing - Kissing is considered to be the fundamental act of foreplay. Kissing could be a very light lip-to-lip contact or a very deep French kiss. Other areas for kissing may include the partner's ears, neck, shoulders, back and other private areas. A kiss could be named as the fire of passion where there may seem no start and no end. Feeling the softness of the lips, and the beating of the heart to sensing the growing fervour. Something as small as a kiss can take one to heights that they have never experienced before.
6. Baths - A sensual bath taken together with the fragrance of scented oils and candles setting up the mood in a relaxing atmosphere can be the perfect start for a night of pleasure.
Whatever the kind, foreplay lowers inhibitions and increases the emotional comfort of the partners. The basic ingredients of foreplay are physical and mental/emotional stimulation, trust, and the expression of caring. A man is stimulated by what he sees, whereas a woman is stimulated by touch and by what she feels. A simple romantic, intimate atmosphere can also be a gesture of foreplay. However it is done, it is a way to prepare the body and the mind for the union between two people and the universe.
Foreplay in A Visual Medium
Depicting foreplay or a sensuous scene is tough in a visual medium like television for a couple of reasons. One – The creative team has limitations on the content it can show on prime time television and Two – The intention of the scene, the sensuality, the mood of the protagonists need to be conveyed to the audience. The audience have to feel one with the characters, they have to visualize, they have to fantasize. And here lies the main problem for the creatives – to set the stage or create the mood for romance. This is what I call as stimulating the visual senses.
1. Sense of hearing – Through our sense of hearing we can hear the ocean lap upon the beach and the gentle melody of a saxophone. Our sense of hearing has a huge influence in creating a desired atmosphere. Gentle background music can be used to create the mood and feel.
2. Color – Color of the surroundings depict the mood of the situation. Red color signifies passion. White color depicts purity. The color of the fabrics on the furniture, pillows, window coverings can be played with to depict the comfort level and relaxation and thus effect our perception of the situation.
3. Food – A chilled champagne bottle, chocolate dipped strawberries, succulent olives, heart-shaped toppings on the pies etc signify relishing treats during a special evening.
4. Accessories – Dimming lamps, ceiling lights, wall scones or candles are the perfect way to incorporate mood setting lighting to a room. Freshly cut flowers arranged aesthetically creates an atmosphere that is inviting and comfortable. Incorporating indoor water falls or fountains and natural calming and romantic sights into the dcor of a room depict an unique air of mystery and intrigue. These accessories evoke visual interest.
The creatives can use the romance conventions to add to the persuavise effect by determining what elements of such conventions they want the communication to be drawn on. They will have to appeal mostly to the emotions or to the logic or to the credibility of the audience. Determining what is shown first and why, what is in the foreground, what is in the background, what is in or out or of focus serves the persuasive strategy. Any design of the visual communication that is special and unique is sure to attract the audience.

Hi people..... this take has been written by one of our friends - Shreeya Gupta from Geet FB....Shreeya is a regular at Eagle Eye...Shreeya is on IF too but as she is travelling to Prague am posting on behalf of her.....
"For a man to feel loved, he needs to make love. For a woman to make love she needs to feel loved. So that's why the foreplay, the romance, is so much more important to a woman."
- David Weir quotes
Foreplay - When i told Anj jokingly that i would write for this topic never did i imagine that i would give it so much thought or that it would consume 24 hrs of my day!!lol.. I thought about this while i was driving into work and it kept reverberating in my mind the entire 8 hours of my work day suffice to say that i was totally a unproductive zombie because of this topic!! LOL.The only saving grace is that i did not utter the word "Foreplay" in any meeting!.
Finally, i decided to pen down the random thoughts that this word conjured up in me. Some might agree, some might love to have a healthy debate and indeed some might find this totally offensive!!! Yes, it does sound offensive to a few people in reality too.(i call them the repressed ones!! LOL)
My analysis of foreplay begins with a totally off topic thought!!
The Kamasutra and the paintings of Khajuraho..
Take the kamasutra or the paintings of Khajuraho they evoke different emotions and reactions from us mortals. Some appreciate the beauty behind the art (the brush strokes, the color, the perfect sculpting of images etc), for some it is a piece of incredible history, for others it is mild curiosity towards something very sexual, sensual, indeed for some it is just nude art and for the majority of people it is sex positions which invokes disgust or a voyeuristic interest to know more!! you might wonder what does this have to do with Foreplay and GEET. There is definitely a parallel here. As those paintings and sculptures mold our psyche and our senses so does the portrayal of foreplay in any Tv show. Since we are discussing specifically GEET, i have painstakingly looked at some of the scenes that made me imagine what the director did not show. Molding of senses and overpowering of our mind comes to mind when i think of all the scenes in GEET where the director has left it to our imagination.
In Geet so far, i have seen verbal foreplay, physical, non-physical foreplay all played out beautifully and left to the imaginations and dreams of the viewer. We are left to wonder what would he or she do when the verbal foreplay reaches its zenith. Case and point after the aftermath of the "Tere mast mast do nain" sequence there was a dialogue between Maan and Geet where MSK says that if you call me Maan sir one more time... and Geet replies back saying i know when to use Maan sir and when not to, this scene perfectly depicts verbal foreplay. What do those sentences mean?? For me, it meant that MSK would grab her and give her a french kiss if she ever called him Maan Sir (a very standard reaction for a hormonal woman!! LOL) and from GEET's side i thought she would use it to get him to react when she needed him to and that is exactly how she did it!!! later. In my eyes the scene was a subjugation of the senses for others it might not have had a great effect. It would have been categorized as another nok jhok between MSK and Geet but there were layers behind each sentence that was penned down and how it was emoted between the characters. People who saw this and loved it are the ones who understand the intellectual simulation of foreplay.
Audiences understand and take in foreplay at different levels.For some only non-physical foreplay would make sense as they are more visual and make you earn to watch it again and again. Take any of the sequences in the show, be it the stare that MSK gave to GEET's lips or any close encounter scenes between MSK and GEET. The eye contact is a powerful mechanism or should i say trick of the trade by which the creatives show physical yearning and intimacy. The almost kiss scene on the lift or the stare that MSK gave to Geet's lips are case in point. Kudos to the creative team for giving a brilliantly shot. The practical viewer in me knew that he was not going to kiss Geet's lips but the dreamer in me breathed a sigh as he stared at her lips and my imagination took over. I remember thinking an M&B scene where the kiss was more graphical and it was MSK and GEET doing the kissing. This is what the director wants you to imagine and dream, the passion, the sensuality, the uncontrollable but controlled desire of their protagonists.
There are scenes in the show if you see it closely enough will realize that the actors are not even close to each other when these shots are being taken. There was a scene in the earlier episodes where geet walks in and does a presentation. MSK sits at the head of the table staring at GEET's lips. For the normal viewer it depicts the yearning of MSK for GEET. Here too it is the trick of the brilliant camera. The camera zooms in on Geet's lips which makes us imagine that MSK is staring at GEET's lips with uncontrollable passion and desire!!!!The actors give their shots individually but to the viewer there is nothing more powerful than that eye contact, which is what the narcotic fueled brains of viewers are supposed to believe and if the viewer believes it then the director has achieved his goal. Total takeover of our brain and grey matter! *winks*.
Physical foreplay, this is what a typical viewer would always want to see but the directors don't let it out of their kitty bags a lot. This is like those priceless masterpieces that come out when they know that the viewers interest is wanning or when they want to make it a high point of the show. Physical foreplay always makes a viewer sit up and take notice.During Kurbaan Hua or the Roop tere mastana sequence how many of you went aww or got x-rated visions seeing their physical foreplay. i bet it was everyone here and that is exactly what the director wants you to feel. The physical manifestation of desire, passion, sex, etc and this foreplay if shot well and with enough thought in it will definitely garner the TRPs the creative team is looking for.
At the end it is just mind games and an artistic illusion of make believe that we the viewers fall for time and again! You might ask why! Why do we do it? why do we the female species fall for it. I started the topic with the answer (the quotations) and i am ending with it as well. There are other varied reasons too but the top most reason that always hits me when i give it any deep thought (which people who know me well would attest that it is rare) is that we humans as in the female of the species are so programmed to know others people's psychic and to enjoy beauty and understand the intricacies of human nature that we give in every time. Foreplay is nothing but a mind game that we think we would win but always end up loosing!!! (And i have lost it too!!Right now..).
On an ending note, all i would want to say is that enjoy the foreplay, the imagined intimacies, the illusion of passion and desire and fly along in this journey with GEET and Maan. Who knows when we would see another jodi who can evoke such strong feelings in their viewers or give us such passionate foreplays were we are left wondering if it is reel or real??!! LOL
