Types of Sex
Sexual pleasure can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences! But there are also a lot of confusing things about sex, and it is totally normal to have questions.
Let us talk about sex! Are you excited? Of course you are! People define "sex" in many different ways, and it means different things to them.
Do check below to see if we have all your definitions covered:
- Vaginal sex (penis-in-vagina intercourse)
- Dry humping or genital rubbing (heavy petting)
- Fingering or hand jobs (hand-to-genital contact)
- Masturbation (pleasuring yourself to the point of ejaculation)
Vaginal sex is what most people think of as sex. It is specifically the kind of sex where a guy puts his penis inside a lady’s vagina. It is also the only kind of sex that can result in pregnancy.
Oral sex is defined as using your mouth to stimulate another person’s genitals. However, there are many ways to refer to oral sex including: going down on someone, eating someone out, giving someone a blow job, or giving head. You probably already know this, but you cannot get pregnant or get cancer from oral sex. But don’t get too carried away! Unprotected oral sex still puts both you and your partner at risk for STDs. For safer oral sex, always use a male or female condom.
An orgasm is when muscles that were tightened when you were sexually excited or stimulated are released and relaxed and then return back to how they were before you got aroused. Having an orgasm is sometimes called "coming" or "cumming" “or releasing”.
Each person has a different and unique experience of orgasms but the most common experiences may include: a feeling of warmth, faster heartbeat, sweating, faster and harder breathing, your face and chest might get flushed, and you will have muscle spasms in your genitals. Some feel the urge to moan or scream out in pleasure. It is often intense and feels really good (really gooood). During orgasm, some ‘feel-good’ chemicals are released into your bloodstream that might make you feel giddy, happy, warm or even sleepy. 😉
Men usually ejaculate when they reach orgasm. Some women ejaculate during sexual activity, too.
Some women may have orgasms that are so mild that they may think they did not actually have one but male orgasms are unmistakable. Also, it is nice for ladies to focus on what you feel, rather than on your idea or imagination of what an orgasm ought to be.
