This is one of those things that can vary tremendously from person to person, and from day to day. Some people may need a lot of foreplay to become aroused enough to enjoy intercourse, others may find that they become aroused very quickly and can "dive right in", as you put it it.
i think the question of 'is foreplay necessary' really depends on both the people and the circumstances ... sometimes foreplay with my partner lasts 2 1/2 hours, whereas sometimes it only takes 10 or 15 minutes before we 'dive right in' for a 'quickie'. for me it's frequently time restraints, and i often find i get aroused faster when i know we only have 1/2 an hour or an hour - sense of excitement maybe?! for me some foreplay is always necessary for lubrication, i don't want painful sex! , but i spose some people don't -always- need it. total personal thing i think...

Hey. :-) For me, I prefer it when my boyfriend makes me orgasm prior to sex either with manual or oral sex. Sometimes though, if we only have time for a quickie, we skip that. But I make sure I am always wet enough for the insertion to feel good. Kissing him and having him stroke my breasts are quick ways for me to become wet. :-)
