good ol' frottage. that's when you position yourself like you are going to be engaging in intercourse, but you don't penetrate. sometimes done with clothes on, sometimes without (but with a condom! you can still get preggy or transmit diseases without penetration!)

it might not get you off, but it sure works for a *lot* of people.

it's friction, baby (blatant better than ezra reference, sorry!). it's the sensation of all the rubbing that appeals to a lot of people, and a well-placed seam is sometimes enough to bring a happy couple to orgasm.

Lots of people like lots of different things. What you might *get off* on other people might not. Its a personal preference.

Just like you don't have to have all your clothes off to 'get off' from masturbating, you don't have to have your clothes off to get off from this. Because orgasms are a lot more complicated then a few naked bodies

Just as a reminder, just because you're wearing clothes doesn't necessarily mean that there are a bunch of different garments. It can be anything from fully clothed to underwear. If you're wondering why it's "arousing," it's kind of like your partner getting you off with their hand, only with their genitals. You're also in a sexual position, and the mental kick you get from that is great.

that sounds interesting, I think I'm gonna suggest it to my boyfriend! i mean we don't always have to have SEX! it seems kinda like a form of foreplay, and I think foreplay turns me on more than sex!..... sometimes.

Ah, the good old days...that was the first sex I ever had, and man was that mutually fulfilling. We were fully clothed, I had a bitemark on my shoulder for three days...sigh...

itz basically just REALLY heavy making out in sexual positions. You get off on it b/c itz... i dunno, a sexual mind game. PPL do it mainly just for fun and kind of a joke, but it actually is fun.

HEY GUYS, AND GIRLS!!!
Thanx for all the info on this topic, my boyfriend came down this weekend and I tried it without telling him, I was just on top of him and when we while making out I was just rubbing myself against him pleasurably, and all of a sudden he say's "uum... we kinda have a problem.... I kinda pre-maturally...." and I just started laughing.
I was like "I know, I kinda tried to make you... it was just something I read" He was like... oh!! he liked it but I think it kinda bummed him out knowing that we wouldn't be able to "DO IT" for a little while after!! thank you!

glad it worked for you...but i just wanted to say that before me and my bf actually went ahead and decided (carefully and responsibly) to do the "real deal", we had this dry sex. Its a lot of fun. definetly a turn on. and you're right, you dont always have to go through the whole sexual intercourse thing just to have a "good time" with the person you love and care for.

Dry sex is going through the motions of sex with clothing on.People like it because it is safe and fun and can be arousing and it feelz really good!

Dry sex is kind of like cyber sex, because you have to use your imagination to actually enjoy it.

... Not necessarily.. using your imagination helps, but you still are receiving physical stimulation.

I think dry sex and masturbation are SUPER! both gratifying and pretty darn safe (i'm talking about wearing actual clothes.. getting down to Undies and Boxers is NOT safe.. sperm and fluids can get right through a lot of thin fabrics, so you should wear a condom if your planning on doing that)
