Yay! I get to write the first post! Er...hi everyone. ^_^
Those of you who have seen my writing before know that I think it's very very important to get certain information out to people, especially those who plan on waiting for sex. Many so-called "virgins" don't take into account all the aspects of sex. They don't realize what counts as sex by law, what can get you pregnant, what can give you STDs. Recent research shows that teenagers who declare themselves as being abstinent are statistically proven to have more STDs, simply because they don't realize all the ways you can get things (particularly through oral and anal sex), and think that these things don't "count" as sex. I'm pretty sure you're all intelligent enough to understand these things, and I think you would take the proper precautions, like making sure your significant other is free of STDs. But just in case, I'm gonna post this one more time.
Risks & Dangers
Heavy petting, particularly fingering, is regarded by most courts and law as "penetration of an orifice," which means that if your partner is underage, you can be held accountable for statuatory rape.
The Dry Hump (forgive me, I absolutely hate that word, but I can't think of anything else to call it) can also be legally construed as sexual activity, which again means that if your partner is underage, you can be held accountable for statuatory rape. Furthermore, if a man ejaculates while dry-humping with a woman, any semen that gets anywhere near her vagina can cause pregnancy or spread an STD. Yes, sperm can penetrate cotton, denim, so on and so forth. Though it's unlikely, it is something to be aware of.
Dry sex is when your partner actually penetrates you through clothing, like your undergarments (to some people, this is the "dry hump," but I differentiate). Make no mistake, this is vaginal pentration, it is sex, it can result in pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. It will be considered sexual penetration in a court of law and thus you can be held accountable for counts like statuatory rape if your partner is underage.
Oral sex is where you take your partner's member into your mouth and orally stimulate him, or he/she orally stimulate you between your legs. This is something that I don't personally consider sex in a mental or moral sense. HOWEVER, it is considered sexual penetration by law, and it can also result in some serious STDs.
Vaginal sex is self-explanatory, I think. Just know that the pull-out method is known to be very very very unreliable because of the sperm in the precum; i.e., if a couple were to get carried away and have sex and the male "pulled out" of the vagina before actual ejaculation, there's still a very good chance that sperm has already been transmitted and the female could be impregnated. Also, STDs are spread easily through these means. The Pill and the Shot can protect against pregnancy, but not STDs, so it's always best to use a condom. Even when on a form of birth control, using some other form of protection is advisable in order to further decrease your risk of pregnancy. Obviously, this would also count as sexual penetration in a court of law.
Anal sex is also pretty self-explanatory. It's considered sex by law, obviously. It's dangerous because again, there's a very very very high chance of transmitting STDs as well as other infections, and there's a chance of doing serious damage to the "receiving" party's rectum. The number of infections and physical problems that can occur in the "plumbing" of regular anal-sex recipients is quite high.
All these things legally count as sexual activity, and many of them are considered--religiously and morally--to be "sex" as well...i.e., if you've had anal sex, you're probably not considered a virgin anymore. I think that's it's very important that people be aware of these things, particularly young people, because they seem to take unneccesary risks sometimes. I'll probably be back later to post my "Other Than Sex" novel-long post. ^^
