This is something I do when I am alone and it gives a very long and incredibly powerful orgasm.
I have never actually done this with my husband as I fear he would not have the patience and edging has never been his thing (he doesn't really understand it because he comes from a background of getting it over with as quick as possible). But I would love to share the experience with him.
I was wondering if this is a common sexual practice and if men like it as part of couples sex?
I LOVE this idea! We have never really tried it, but then again we're married with kids, I work late many days, and our schedules are hectic. So if we do find some "alone time" my DW's attitude is like, "Ok, let's do this, ready? Go!". We take our time in the bedroom sometimes, but then we run the risk of one of the younger kids waking up randomly. Nothing worse than getting all hot & bothered only to have the 3 yr old wake up crying...total buzz kill of the worst order. Our youngest is a terrible sleeper, and the next oldest has some type of sleep apnea that wakes her throughout the night (she is having surgery this year to correct!)
I'd love to try it if we are on a trip or something and have a room with no kids. I fear that my wife is now "pre-programmed" to rush things though so this may be tricky. Plus she will wonder where I got the idea...maybe I'll just tell her that an old gf really loved it, so I thought she would like it, too?
On a side note, I did stumble upon something that really turned me on...the Yoni massage. Basically a body massage + a female happy ending. Lots of oil & rubbing, plus a long, drawn-out stimulation of the vagina and all the surrounding areas. But the key is to not focus all the attention between her legs, you need to rub the arms, legs, etc, intermittently to break the tension. So yeah, lot's of "edging" type characteristics. This is one of my fantasies. My wife loves rubs so I think she will like this!
