Hey, so i was just wondering, my boyfriend was rubbing his penis against my area, just the base, NOT THE HEAD, but i just wanted to make sure this isnt a risk, because he didnt ejactulate at all, the reason why im asking is because on a NHS website it said just rubbing can be a risk, but if it was not the head of the penis and there was no ejactulate is there?

By risk, are you asking about pregnancy risk?

The situation you describe sounds like it doesn't have any pregnancy risk attached to it, but yes, you should consider any genital-to-genital contact as a possible risk for pregnancy.

Would you like to talk about ways to reduce pregnancy risks?

Yes, semen is required for a pregnancy risk to occur, but it's not always possible to tell whether there is any pre-ejaculate. Pre-ejaculate by itself does not contain sperm, but it can pick up any leftover sperm in the urethra as it goes through. That's why we treat any unprotected genital contact as a possible pregnancy risk. It also poses an STI risk. It's better to err on the side of caution and use a barrier method like condoms for any genital contact.
