Yep, plenty of ways of being sexual with someone, if not most ways, do not pose risks of pregnancy.

We have a lot of content on the main site and boards which tells y'all the things that do not pose any pregnancy risks, or are so unlikely to that worrying about them causing pregnancy would be akin to worrying about getting hit by a meteorite.

But it seems like every day, we still have folks just not understanding what activities do NOT pose risks or likely not reading the content we have on this.

Here's one page of Birth Control Bingo that gives you a very concise, clear list:

To have this all in one place for our users who spend more of their time on the boards, that list on that page is this:

Some sexual activities which do not pose any risk of pregnancy include:

kissing or making out
general body stroking ("feeling up") or massage
dry sex (with one or both partners dressed in some way) or clothed tribbing or frottage
oral sex
manual sex
mutual masturbation
solo masturbation
male-receptive anal intercourse (where the intercourse is in the bottom of someone who also has a penis)
phone sex or cybersex
role playing and/or sensation play (within or outside the context of BDSM activities)
any same-sex partnered sexual activity.

Just remember that some of the sexual activities listed above can still pose risks of sexually transmitted infections.

So, there they all are, a whole bunch of ways of being sexual with someone without any pregnancy risks.

Do us a solid and please also try not to keep asking about if any of these activities pose realistic, or even possible, in some cases, risks of pregnancy: they just don't. [Smile]
