You Can Keep Your Clothes On Or Off

Switch Up Positions

There isn't only one way to have sex and there isn't only one way to dry hump. Doing a classic missionary pose is always going to be one of the most popular ways, but you can totally get creative with the different ways you dry hump. You can lie on your side, your back, against a wall...

Chance of Pregnancy

If you're paranoid about getting pregnant, you've probably Googled whether you can get pregnant from any sexual act. If you're wondering about dry humping, there is always a small chance that it could happen. It's not major, but it's still there, especially if you and bae are wearing next-to-no-clothes and he ejaculates on you. (Still, it's a VERY small chance.)

The Virginity Debate

Dry humping is about simulating sex with a lot of humping. It's not about putting the P in the V while you're clothed. Some people get concerned that they're not virgins if bae does get close to the vag. What you need to remember is that it's not up to others to figure out whether your dry humping makes you a virgin or not. You should define it on your own terms.

Watch Out For Clothes

Before you and bae start going at it, you do need to consider what you're wearing, especially if you're going to be fully clothed. You should take off any long necklaces you're wearing so no one gets caught. Belt buckles can also be hazardous, especially if you're both wearing them.

Plus, it will make you feel all nostalgic for the days when dry humping was as far as you went and you thought it was totally hot.
