“Some of my friends think that oral sex constitutes as ‘sex’ in a relationship, but I’m not so sure. What do you think?”
It really depends on who you ask. Some people think oral sex is more intimate than intercourse because your mouth is in contact with someone’s genitals (penis or vagina). Other people think intercourse (penis-vagina sex) is much more intimate because the guy is penetrating the female’s body. Some people consider intercourse as the only ësex’ because it’s the only sex act that can result in pregnancy. On the other hand, some people ask: Why call it oral sex if you don’t consider it sex?
It’s okay to be confused. This conversation has been going on for decades. Most importantly, make sure you’re comfortable with any sexual activities you’re doing, and call it what you like.
