There are different kinds of sex
There are different kinds of sex — but you need good communication and consent no matter what kind of sex is involved. Sex can lead to pregnancy and/or STDs, but there are ways to protect you.
People define "sex" in different ways. Some people believe that it only counts as sex if a penis goes into a vagina, but this isn't true for everybody. Different types of sex include:
• Vaginal sex (penis-in-vagina intercourse)
• Oral sex (mouth-to-genital contact)
• Anal sex (penis-in-butt intercourse)
• Fingering or hand jobs (hand-to-genital contact)
• Dry humping or genital rubbing
• Masturbation (touching yourself)
Going down. Eating out. Blow job. These are all names for oral sex — using your mouth to stimulate another person's genitals.
Some people like oral sex, and others don't. Some people like giving oral sex but don't like getting it. Some like getting it but not giving it. All of this is totally fine and normal — it's up to you to decide what you're comfortable with, and let your partner know.
Vaginal sex is when a penis goes inside a vagina. Some people really enjoy vaginal sex, and some people don’t. Some people with a vulva/clitoris orgasm from vaginal sex alone, and some people don’t. Just like all kinds of sex, everyone has different things they like and don’t like — and that’s ok. Let your partner know what feels good to you.
