PGS. 170.4 – 190 (CHAPTER 6) Attitudes Towards Kissing Vary (esp. in Non Western Societies) “Petting” and “Fondling” Refers to a Variety of Noncoital Behaviors 1. Foreplay/afterplay 2. Necking, petting, heavy petting (Fondling can be used to describe any of these behaviors) 3. Outercourse, “dry humping,” tribadism (rubbing vulvas and thrusting) Oral Sex is Increasingly Popular 1. Fellatio – oral stimulation of the penis 1. May run lips rhythmically up and down the shaft or use the tongue to stimulate sensitive portions (i.e. corona and frenulum) 2. Good communication is key (to avoid gagging and miscommunications about whether the receiver is okay with having ejaculate in the mouth) 3. Men typically enjoy fellatio more than women 4. Demographic differences (i.e. more educated people tend to enjoy it more… you are in college…what do you think??) 2. Cunnilingus – oral stimulation of the vulva 1. Explore vulva with lips and tongue 2. For some women, this is the only way in which they can regularly achieve orgasm 3. 69 – mutual oral sex in a head to genitals fashion 4. Anilingus – mouth anal contact Most Sexual Encounters Include Coitus 1. Wide variety of positions – different positions achieve different goals 2. Man – Above Position (traditional favorite) 1. W lies on her back with her legs parted and the M places himself above her (“missionary position”) 2. Know advantages and disadvantages 1. e.g. May provide more erotic stimulation to the M than W 3. Women's movement has encouraged alternative positions 1. Woman above 1. Gives W greater control; W may receive more erotic stimulation 2. Side by side position 1. Relatively relaxed; prolongs sexual encounter 3. Rear-entry coitus (“doggy-style”) 1. ANOT synonymous with anal sex 2. No direct stimulation of clitoris but may be desirable for G spot stimulation Anal Sex May be a Part of Either Heterosexual or Male Homosexual Behavior 1. Anal sex – Penetration of the anus by the penis 2. Not rare in heterosexual sex -` 3. Usually necessary to go slowly and learn to relax sphincter, as well as the lubricants 4. The anus can also be penetrated with objects other than a penis (i.e. a dildo, a finger, etc.) 1. Inserting any large, hard or sharp object may be very dangerous
