Welcome to Scarleteen!

I'm going to move your thread to Sex Basics and Sexual Heath. I think it will get more relevand responses there.

Also, we recommend the use of the Search function. There are lots of previous posts on your topic.

What is the use of fingering?

The same as with any other sexual activity - giving pleasure (and, sometimes, providing a way of being intimate).

If it's not doing that, don't do it.

It's worth remembering that just inserting fingers into the vagina - which is what some people use "fingering" to mean - is pretty unlikely to be pleasurable on its own for most women. So if that's what you've been trying, that may be why you're wondering what the "use" is.

quote:
can i get pregnant from both anal...and vaginal sex?

There is no connection between the anus and the vagina, but it's possible for semen or pre-ejaculate to leak out of the anus and get smeared into the vagina. So yes, you can get pregnant as a result of anal intercourse.

In addition, unprotected anal intercourse is one of the highest-risk activities when it comes to STD transmission. So using a condom for it is just good common sense anyway.

Nope, your vagina's made out of this awesome stretchy muscle that is small enough to hold in a tampon, or can stretch to accomodate a baby, and then go right back to its regular shape. It's pretty versatile.
