This is the initial stage of a woman’s sexual experience. Women will often notice it by the feeling of “wetness” as they begin to feel sexually “turned on”. It is characterised by other manifestations such as an increase in her heart rate and faster breathing. Her skin may appear flushed or have beads of sweat. This would explain why men talk about a woman’s ‘tightness’; it is because the female body has been created to make the vaginal canal narrower thus increasing the grasp, which enhances the male’s own sexual experience.
In this phase, a woman will experience an increase in the responses experienced in the excitement phase. Breathing will become more intense, blood flow to the vagina will increase, vaginal walls swell even more. Other indicators of this phase include increase muscle tension and muscle spasms, usually evident in the hands, feet and even the face.
