foreplay in the sexual act
#52
Forgive me, but the relevant section in McHugh and Callan's Moral Theology: A Complete Course (vol. II) is too long for me to quote in a short period of time.  Instead, I'll quote a few snippets based on what's been discussed in this thread.

"Lewdness is an action not directed to the conjugal act.  Coition itself is lawful in the married state, and this legitimatizes all the preparatory or accessory endearments.  Hence, the rule as to married persons is that venereal kisses and other such acts are lawful when given with a view to the exercise of the lawful marriage act and kept within the bounds of decency and moderation; that they are sinful, gravely or lightly according to the case, when unbecoming or immoderate; that they are venially sinful, on account on the inordinate use of a thing lawful in itself, when only pleasure is intended; that they are mortally sinflul, when they tend to pollution, whether solitary or not solitary, for then they are acts of lewdness" (sec. 2510 e, p. 522).

"Oral abuse committed by or with either sex is indecent objectively and subjectively.  It is the filthiest form of lewdness, and is usually joined with pollution (irrumation)" (sec. 2512 b, p. 524).

"Fornication ... differs from lewdness, which consists in unconsummated acts, and from sodomitic intercourse, which is consummated but unsuited for generation" (sec. 2523, p. 534).

I hope this is helpful (although it does seem to offer a different opinion than that of Prümmer).
