Having more foreplay could lead to better sex for both of you, and may help reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
Fucking without condoms is the riskiest sex you can have. The longer the penetration time the easier it is for any infections to be passed from one guy to another. Even with safer sex there’s a greater chance of condoms failing if sex goes on for a long time.
While turning up the foreplay could make sex safer, it can also improve the sex you’re having by increasing anticipation, concentrating on the different things you and your partner like, and finding enjoyment in new things to try.
