Pregnancy scares: most people have one at some point. So how worried should a person be after sex? Here are eight questions and our best answer for each. Yes, yes, and yes! Ovulation, when an egg is released from the ovary, usually occurs about 14 days after the start of your last period. Many people have unpredictable ovulation or may have spotting at the time of ovulation, which could be confused with a period. Plus, sperm stay alive and swimming for days after sex. Since sperm cannot swim through clothing, getting pregnant while clothed and that, of course, means while wearing clothing that prevents penetration—a skirt pulled up around your waist doesn't count!
Choose your clothes carefully
No bodily fluids are exchanged in ways that could cause pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections STIs. Many people participate in dry sex as a fun, safer alternative to intercourse. There is no universal method of dry sex. Some participate in dry sex fully dressed, while others participate in dry sex wearing only underwear. The defining characteristic of dry sex is that there is no penetration of the vagina, mouth, or anus. There are many different variations of dry sex. These variations may include: manual stimulation or mutual masturbation , deep kissing, massaging , and any other non-penetrative act. Typically, non-penetrative sex is when partners rub against each other in a sexual manner, such as rubbing genitals.

Yes, for the most part, dry humping is safe. Dry humping is the act of humping without penetration. It may not always look hot and the act can be far from graceful, but dry humping can be quite sexually gratifying. Try not to let unnecessary worrying or preconceived notions about the act distract you from this super-hot experience. How you go about it — from how much or how little you wear to how far you go — depends on what you want from it. You can do it fully clothed or in your underwear. It all comes down to rubbing against yourself — or your partner — in a position that provides plenty of friction to your genitals.
