What Is Dry Humping?

Dry humping is grinding or rubbing your genitals against your partner’s genitals or body. And this is usually done through underwear or clothes, meaning both partners remain fully or partially clothed.

And because dry humping can often lead to orgasm, both partners can experience sexual pleasure but without the repercussions of sex, meaning without the risk of pregnancy or getting an STD.

Dry humping may also occur as foreplay or in addition to sex. It can also be done alone by rubbing your genitals against a piece of furniture or a pillow.

Dry Humping vs. Masturbation

When dry humping is performed as a solo act, it can be seen as another way of masturbation. Dry humping, when done alone, is an act of a person self-stimulating themselves. In other words, dry humping can also be referred to as pillow humping or bed humping.

Benefits Of Dry Humping

Sexual pleasure

Dry humping imitates the sensations of having actual sexual intercourse. It is an act that is pleasurable for both partners, promotes intimacy between them, and brings them the ultimate pleasure – an orgasm.

Harm reduction

Dry humping protects you from pregnancy and STDs and STIs.

Abstinence

When a person wants to avoid sexual contact, or sex with penetration, due to their own preferences or because of their religion and culture, dry humping is a safe way to experience the intimacy and sexual pleasure they need without penetration.

Risks Of Dry Humping

Dry humping is a sexual experience without any major risks because there are no fluids exchanged and thus the risk of getting and an STD, STI, or getting pregnant, is eliminated.

The only risk is that partners can get tempted to have sexual intercourse with penetration. Also, in some cases, during dry humping when people wear stretched clothes, there is a risk of accidental penetration or an exchange of bodily fluids. That’s why both partners need to be cautious.

Other potential risks are:

  • Irritation of the genitals – Repeated rubbing on the genitals can cause pain, friction, or even injuries. Therefore, partners should be open about how things feel to them and not do something if it feels painful to them.
  • Moral and religious issues – Even though dry humping is safe when it comes to the risk of STIs, STDs, and pregnancy, there are cultures that are still very much against it. There are moral and religious codes in some countries that prohibit it thus endorsing strict abstinence from any kind of pleasure-seeking.
  • Consent issues – Like any sexual contact, there is an issue with consent when it comes to dry humping as well. In other words, dry humping without consent can leave a person with serious psychological and traumatic experiences. Therefore, it is not acceptable to do that to anyone without their permission.

Dry Humping And Pregnancy

One of the main questions when it comes to dry humping is: Can you get pregnant from it? The answer is NO. There is not a slight possibility that you can get pregnant from dry humping.

Pregnancy happens when semen makes contact with the woman’s egg, which requires direct contact with genitals and an exchange of bodily fluids. So, when two people dry hump each other with their clothes on, it is impossible for a pregnancy to happen.

Pregnancy can only happen in rare cases when: two people dry hump but their underwear is with holes, or if the woman sits on a surface when there is semen on it, shortly after ejaculation, or when dry humping leads to penetrative sex.

And even when these things happen, the risk of getting pregnant is still very low because the semen has to enter the woman’s vagina and travel to the egg. Therefore, a brief contact with the skin has very low chances of that process happening.

Can You Catch An STD Or STI During Dry Humping?

The transmission of an STD or an STI during dry humping is almost completely impossible because most of them need an exchange of bodily fluids.

But, there are some STIs, for instance, herpes, that gets transmitted with skin-to-skin contact. And a person can contract this type of STI from dry humping if they aren’t clothed.

In rare cases, some sexually transmitted diseases and infections can happen when after dry humping, they sit on someone’s fluids or get in contact with a fluid that leaked from their clothing.

Myths And Misconceptions About Dry Humping

There is a preconceived notion that only young people dry hump since it is a sexual activity without any risks that offers them the ultimate sexual pleasure. However, this misconception is not true. People of all ages enjoy dry humping and many people prefer it even more than penetrative sex for orgasm.

Dry Humping As Alternative Love Therapy

Many would find this as extremely weird and inappropriate – a person getting paid to dry hump, and he is in fact trained and licensed to do it. Meet Niko, a certified dry humper and a self-love coach, and welcome to the world of the free and strange.

Dry Hump Technique

A technique from the Eastern medicine, and what Niko calls Alternative Love Therapy, it involves the complete experience of dry humping with a spiritual note to it. If you thought professional cuddling was strange, you should give Alternative Love Therapy a try.

Based in Santa Monica, people come to Niko for different reasons. “Some are lonely, some are just trying to recapture their youth.” And it does offer a great difference from having casual sex.

Niko also goes to explaining the benefits of Alternative Love Therapy:

“decreased stress levels, increases in serotonin, decrease in cancer rates, healthier lifestyle, happiness,” are just some of the “small benefits” that you can get from this kind of therapy.

Professional dry humping has received a lot of attention on the internet since this video has come out.

Various people reacted positively, even feeling encouraged to learn to become professional Alternative Love Therapists themselves; others react negatively, claiming that Niko is just using the word ‘spiritual’ to get women into his bedroom.

How To Dry Hump?

However, Niko explains that the point of dry humping has little to do with the sexual experience and a lot more to do with the connection that is being created – something many lack nowadays.

“With dry humping, we don’t have sexual intercourse – we have sexual outercourse,” he explains in a follow-up video where he answers the seven most frequently asked questions.

It involves both men and women, as he explains that when with his clients, he doesn’t see ‘a man’ or ‘a woman,’ but energies and connection. “There’s going to be people who say that this is stupid, that I’m taking advantage of people, that this doesn’t work.”

However, his mental approach is, as he says, different. “This is healing. This is holistic science. I got a degree in spiritual psychology so that I can do this to other people. So, I’m very well trained.”

He finds the fact that people have dubbed this as a purely sexual experience as very offensive as a holistic science practitioner and he says that it has nothing to do with “orgasming, erections, or blue balls.”
