or do you only consider oral or penetration to be sex?

  • Some have mentioned orgasm, and relate acts that lead to an orgasm as "sex".

    I disagree because us guys may have "wet dreams" where we have an orgasm in our sleep.

    This is obviously not "sex" for otherwise "wet dream" would become a sexual act too.

    A hand job could be done solo. Its masturbation. It's a form of sexual stimulation that can lead to an orgasm. But it is not sex.

    In the strictest sense, traditionally in many cultures and religions, sex = penis in vagina intercourse (PIV), a "conjugal" act between a man and a woman that may lead to pregnancy.

    In the above definition, where legally, a marriage could be annulled if the couple did not consummate (had PIV intercourse), even oral and anal are not, legally speaking, sex.

    Hence, in modern term, manual, oral and anal could be classified as "foreplay".

    But PIV is always "sex" and never challenged.

  • A handjob is a form of sex. Some people might think otherwise because it's so tame compared. In reality you are using yourself to stimulate another person sexual organ. That's a form of sex, it isn't full on sex, but it is a sexual activity. Giving a handjob does not mean you lose your virginity, but it does count as a sexual act.

  • Obviously it's a sexual act, but most people understand "sex", in the absence of any other qualifiers, to be some form of oral or penetration, at least when a hetersexual couple is concerned.

  • Yes, absolutely.

  • Depends if gloves are involved or not.

  • It's not sex, and you're still a virgin if you jerked off a number of guys. You can't even get an STD from that. That being said, it's still cheating if you do it to some other guy when you're in a relationship

  • Handjobs and blowjobs are sexual activities, but I wouldn't call it "sex" if we're talking about a straight relationship.

  • I really only consider vaginal or anal to be sex

  • Intercourse is often labeled casually as "sex".
    Hand sex and oral sex can produce and orgasm, so I call them as "sexuality".

  • If someone says 'we had sex' and they're a male-female couple, that means vaginal sex unless otherwise specified.

    Handjobs are sex acts, but not 'sex sex'. Same with blowjobs.

  • yep.

  • Yeah its messing around sexually

  • Yep, it is.

  • Umm, of course it is. Any type of sexual activity is a type of sex. Why would handjobs be excluded?

  • What I was taught is that the only way to lose your virginity was to have penetration of the vagina with someone as a guy.

  • Only penetration below the waist.

  • Yes I do

  • one of my favorite types of sex

  • Yep.

  • I don't know but my happy endings in china were soooooo good

  • Penetration

  • No. i hate hnd jobs
