What is Teasing?
Teasing, in the sexual sense, refers to the use of attitude, languageת or other means of flirting to sexually stimulate or arouse someone. Teasing may or may not be a preparation for sexual intercourse and uncertainty that sometimes leads to awkward situations between the individuals involved in the practice.
Teasing normally refers to the practice as safe and enjoyable flirting with a little bit of edge. People who do the teasing recognize the fact that they have more fun than their target or the person that they are teasing.
In several cases, the teaser and the target may have been sexual together. Teasing, then, is just a simple way to affirm or reaffirm their interest in each other and at the same time drawing boundaries.
Why do people engage in teasing? Teasing is oftentimes accompanied by more feelings than the simple sexual arousal. Some of the things that one experiences during teasing are power, ownership, pleasure, challenge, satisfaction, anticipation, and other heightened reactions.
