Different people are going to have different opinions, so I'm not sure what that'll tell you.
In terms of pregnancy and STD risks, yes, that certainly "counts" as intercourse, and gives you a serious risk. It means you're sexually active, and have to deal with all the risks and responsibilities attached.
Whether you think it "counts" in some big existential sense, though, is something that only you can decide.
