Dry Humping Fun For Any Age

Dry humping, also known as humping, is sometimes associated with high school or the early stages of the sexual journey, but it can provide pleasure at any age. In addition to being an independent source of orgasm, it is also a pleasurable foreplay activity. Genital rubbing while clothed and dry humping can create intense physical contact characterized by heat and urgency. Giving your body time to become and remain aroused will increase the likelihood of orgasm.

Communication is crucial in the sexual experience, and dry humping is no exception. Since it can be especially stimulating for those with clitoris, Burton recommends saying things out loud that feel good. Express preferences for pace, clothing layers, position adjustments, and any other wishes or boundaries. Embracing dry humping can bring a new sense of pleasure and connection to your sex life. And you can also try to incorporate the use of sex toys in this type of sex.

Relive the Joy of Dry Humping

We all have that unforgettable moment – experiencing an orgasm with a partner for the first time. Mine happened at our local drive-in theater while he was "dry humping" in the back seat of the car (yes, we're clichés, sue me!). Not quite ready for sex, we were rubbing our genitals passionately with our clothes on. We were both shocked when I suddenly climaxed and moaned like a man possessed. I was so satisfied after our non-intrusive escapade that I completely passed out in the passenger seat as he hurriedly drove us home for our 11:00 PM meetup. curfew. Ah, the energy of youth.

Now, let me lay out my case for including dry humping in the adult repertoire. listen to me:

Your Clitoris Is on the Outside

Let's be clear: Even experts admit that diplomacy (colloquially known as dry humping) should not be considered a precursor to purely penetrative sex. This point is emphasized succinctly: "The clitoris is on the outside." Essentially, engaging in stroking, rubbing, or humping activities that target the clitoris can enhance pleasure and satisfaction.

While society may view penis-in-vagina (P-in-V) as the ultimate goal of “sex” (which is essentially heterosexual), it’s important to realize that, from an anatomical perspective, the vagina is more than Is a curled clitoris pointing upwards and flattening. The vagina has very few nerve endings, so there is minimal internal sensation, and it responds more to pressure than friction. This feature allows people to wear tampons or menstrual cups without feeling them.

Darnell further explains that for many women, P-in-V sex can feel mediocre because the pressure generated by the penis doesn't compare to what a well-placed finger can achieve. This perspective challenges traditional narratives about sexual satisfaction and encourages a more nuanced understanding of pleasure that goes beyond traditional norms.

Safer than Penetrative Sex

If you're concerned about contracting an STI through intercourse or are at risk of pregnancy, dry humping offers a viable alternative for sexual gratification. While it's true that some STIs can be spread through dry humping (just as herpes is spread through skin-to-skin contact), using a barrier method like condoms can significantly reduce the risk.

Additionally, dry humping allows individuals to control the intensity of sexual encounters. In situations where sex can be painful, dry humping offers a way to manage and adjust the experience to a comfortable level.

It Definitely Suits Me

In the name of journalistic devotion, I invited my partner to a dry humping session in order to write about our experiences (all with the intention of sharing them with readers, of course). He was a kind and considerate man and readily agreed. The next night we drank two cans of margaritas from our favorite Mexican restaurant and stumbled home feeling both amorous and ready for action. I was already in bed and I reminded him that we were committed to grinding rather than traditional penetration.

He lay on top of me, both of us still wearing our t-shirts and underwear, and started rubbing me repeatedly. Oh, does it feel good. Personally, I find direct clitoral stimulation too intense and prone to discomfort. Thankfully, our underwear provided the perfect cushioning for my sensitive clit. Since there is no physical contact with the most vulnerable areas, we are able to apply more pressure without any pain, creating an intensely passionate experience.

When I'm ahead, being in the lead allows me to control the pace and angle of everything - it's a really enjoyable experience. The beauty of dry humping is its simplicity; there's very little technique involved since you're basically just rubbing against each other. With the lack of pressure to "be good at," it's easier to fully embrace these feelings and escape any thoughts of self-consciousness. Although I didn't climax during this dry humping adventure, that was probably due to being slightly tipsy. Still, the experience felt magical.

So this is my unapologetic endorsement of dry humping. It provides all the clitoral stimulation you want without the overwhelming intensity that might require a break, as can happen with hands, mouth, penis, or any other preferred method. Say goodbye to traditional sex and hello to your new go-to moves in the bedroom.
