12/5/2016Slides and Notes for Chapter 915/22Lecture NotesTouching does not need to be directed solely toward the genitals or erogenous zones.The entire body is responsive to a touch or a caress. Touching is the sign of caring andsignal for arousal. It can be used over the entire body as well as the genitals.Sex researchers, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, suggest a form of touching theycall "pleasuring." Pleasuring is nongenital touching and caressing. Neither partner triesto sexually stimulate the other; they simply explore, discovering how their bodies andtheir partner's bodies respond to touching.Some forms of touching are directly sexual, such as caressing, fondling, or rubbing ourown or our partner's genitals or breasts. The pressing together of bodies with genitalthrusting is called tribidism, or "dry humping" among heterosexual couples. Manylesbian women enjoy the overall body contact and eroticism of this form of genitalstimulation; sometimes, the partners place their pelvic areas together to providemutual clitoral stimulation.Rubbing the penis between the thighs of a partner is a type of touching calledinterfemoral intercourse. Heterosexual couples who do not use contraception must besure the man does not ejaculate near the vaginal opening so as to avoid conception.Stimulating a partner's clitoris or penis with the hand or fingers can increase excitementand lead to orgasm. Mutual masturbation can also be intensely sexual. Some peopleuse sex toys such as dildos, vibrators, or benwah balls to enhance sexual touching.Image from McGrawHill Image Library
12/5/2016Slides and Notes for Chapter 916/22KissingLecture NotesKissing is usually our earliest interpersonal sexual experience, and its primal intensitymay be traced back to our suckling as infants. Kissing is probably the most acceptableof all sexual activities. The tender lover's kiss symbolizes love, and the erotic lover'skiss represents passion. Both men and women regard kissing as a romantic expression,a symbol of affection as well as desire.The lips and mouth are highly sensitive totouch and are exquisitely erotic parts of our bodies. Although kissing may appearinnocent, it is in many ways the height of intimacy. The adolescent's first kiss is oftenregarded as a milestone, a rite of passage, the beginning of adult sexuality. The amountof kissing differs according to sexual orientation. Lesbian couples tend to engage inmore kissing than heterosexual couples, while gay couples kiss less than heterosexualcouples.Ordinary kissing is considered safer sex. French kissing is probably safe,unless the kiss is hard and draws blood or either partner has open sores or cuts in oraround the mouth. Image from McGrawHill Image LibraryOralGenital Sex
