Virginity is actually a social concept, so what defines virginity changes from person to person. It's really up to you.

Dry sex, if clothed, does not generally present pregnancy or STD risks. However, if dry sex is performed nude, then yes, there can be pregnancy and STD risks.

Dry sex is when you and your partner rub each other's genitals without any penetration happening...and yes, if you're fully clothed there's absolutely no risks but then when both of you are nude it would mean there's no barrier between your genitals and any direct penis-vagina contact always presents a risk...Which means even if one of you are clothed still there wouldn't be a risk as sperm just can't move through clothes....That's why they say dry sex with clothes on is the safest! Hope this helped

should you still use a condom or would that just be pointless with 2 pairs of jeans and 2pairs of undies blocking the sperm? i think it would break from the friction wouldnt it?

(sorry for the paranoia!!)

If you're fully clothed, there is just no need for a condom.

The only way a pregnancy risk can be present is if there is genital contact. If there is clothing involved, there's no genital contact (unless we're talking something like a skimply pair of lace panties that gets thoroughly soaked in semen, or something), which makes condoms fairly pointless.

Fonz, if you're this concerned about pregnancy risk, might want to re-think if you're ready for what you're doing.
