The Point of Dry Humping and Other Obscure Sexual Activities

my g+ plus

    Posted in Guys, Love

Dry humping. What the hell is it? And is it just something for sexually inexperienced high school kids? It’s pretty much the act of “getting it on” without actually “getting it on” — sex with clothes on. I’ve heard it called “outercourse,” “non-penetrative sex” and “heavy petting.” I’d go ahead and say that grinding on the dance floor to “Get Low” could even be considered dry-humping.

So on that note, I’m just going to come out and say it: I am a fan of the dry hump. Believe it or not, it is actually possible to climax from dry humping. I can testify. I also know a lot of people who are fans of the clothed horizontal mambo and don’t mind keeping their clothes on for a night. Some may still wonder what the point of it is when you can just get down to business right away, but they may be missing one important “plus” to these frisky moves: foreplay.

As per usual during a weekly girls’ night, we got onto the topic of sex and the importance of foreplay. For the most sexual encounters (minus the “quickies” before work or class), foreplay is definitely important! Slowly building up to an amazing sexual encounter makes that climax even more memorable. It’s not about the destination, but rather the journey, right?

Sex acts such as dry-humping, intense massaging, deep kissing, etc. all matter. They all help lead up (or sometimes don’t depending on your cup of tea) to the big main event: sexual intercourse. These tamer sexual acts work as a slow — but wonderful! — progression to the actual act of having sex. Another way that these obscure sexual activities work to the advantage of us girls is that if it’s our “time of the month” these are all still fair game! “Period Week” does not have to be synonymous with “Blow Job Week,” ladies. Let’s remember that. We’re allowed to get a little lovin’ too!

So lastly, to answer the question of how old is too old to dry-hump? I say you’re never too old! Yes, dry-humping, erotic massaging and hardcore make out sessions are all better alternatives for younger kids who aren’t ready to “go all the way,” but that doesn’t mean that these acts are “too young” for us older folks! Get your dry-hump on!
