Is ‘Dry-Humping’ Part Of Your Foreplay?

I haven’t thought of the term “dry-humping” since high school. However, recently it keeps coming up in conversations with people and I’m forced to recall my dry-humping past. Then last night my friend had gone on an online date that ended in dry-humping.

“What do you mean ‘dry-humping?’ Like high school stuff?” I asked.

“Yes! We were making out in the cab and he started grinding up on me. He was pushing his crotch against mine really hard. I’ll probably have bruises on my pelvic bone tomorrow.”

“I had no idea people were still doing that!” I exclaimed, as my mind immediately wandered to how I was going to make it into a post. (Unfortunately, that’s exactly how my brain works with everything at this point in my life.)

After some Googling, I found that dry-humping actually has it’s own Wikipedia page. Obviously, this fact alone makes dry-humping (also known as non-penetrative sex and outercourse), a real thing that people, besides 15-year-olds on the couch after their parents go to sleep, do. And based on last night’s incident with my friend it also appears to be a step for some adults in getting to the actual intercourse stage of the game. Yes, my friends, the 30-something dry-humping community is alive and well!

What I remember most about dry-humping is, like my friend and her now-bruised nether region, was the pain. When two people are wearing jeans and humping each other as if they’re bunny rabbits in some sort of competition, it doesn’t feel good at all. It actually fucking hurts. I understand that this is just what kids do as a prelude to the real deal, but once you have the real deal, why would you go back to all that pain? I would only feel good 10% of the time!

So now I have to ask:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I am surprised by the results of this poll. Dry-humping is fucking painful. I seriously got phantom pelvic bone flashback pain just from reading your jean-on-jean description.

      I’m surprised too. I blame 50 Shades of Grey, of course… you know, for enjoying the pain factor.

  • pattya

    i have sex with women so drying humping without pants isnt so dry if you are doing it right and it is fucking awesome!

    Thank you US Fish and Wildlife Service Office, for confirming there’s a camera hidden somewhere in my apartment.

    If wearing the right clothing (soft, non-denim bottoms), dry-humping is fantastic. However, it should never go on for a prolonged amount of time.

    • holleeta

      yes. I like it with leggings on, straddling the boy who is just wearing his underwear.

      Been there. Visually very nice, too, although I’m partial to baby dolls for this; for her, anyway. (Never tried the other.) For me, at least, it’s a psychological way of placing us both back in a more mutually innocent time and place, as well as eliminating the nagging need to perform. Also, I find that it opens me mentally and emotionally to intimate conversation. Especially so, as touch can maintain persistent contact, while eyes can be closed or heads turned so that eyes are averted.

      On the off chance that any of you might have occasion to compare attaining such intimacy with pulling teeth, I think the difference lies in the fact that we’re DOING something. We do like to justify our time in concrete ways, as we would to a male friend. “Yeah, we grind a lot; it’s great edge play” is the kind of thing a guy wouldn’t be embarrassed to share with other guys or enter in his calendar.

    Making out for a bit, stealing a base or two, and he then decides to rub his clothed genitals near my nether regions, that’s just a sign that clothes will be taken off and sex will be had.

    I honestly think it’s a natural thing that they can’t help but do after a little while.

    It’s fair game in small doses.

    • jack_sprat2

      That’s just territorial marking, limbic behavior.

  • Breezy

    Legitimately one of my favorite activities ever.

  • Mounting&Counting

    Since I’ve worked as a stripper for over a year, dry humping is very much a part of my life! That’s what a lap dance essentially is, depending on the particular dance. LOL.

  • jack_sprat2

    Some of the best sex I’ve ever had involved two bodies, two sets of undergarments, and a leisurely hour or two, pretending that nothing was going on. Talk, play wrestle, allow his tumescence to wax and wane, kiss for a bit here and there, cuddle, lie quietly while “adjusting” one another with small movements involving rubbing and separation.

    It’s also an excellent way to minimize two things which cause conflict: the overuse of porn and premature ejaculation. Frankly, I think it taps some of the same libidinous energy channeled (for a few) by fetishistic chastity. Without the consequential diminishment of self which sometimes results from the latter. Or the physical dangers of enforced chastity involving CBT.
