What is oral sex?
Q: I am 21 years old. I belong to a very conservative family. Therefore, it is very difficult to enquire about any kind of sexual query from anybody. I have a boyfriend whom I'll be marrying soon. It is a mutual understanding between us not to have intercourse before marriage. But we have kissed each other several times. He even kisses and licks my neck passionately. We have never done anything further than that. What exactly is meant by oral sex? Can our activity be termed as oral sex, if yes, what are the risks involved in continuing such kind of activity?
A:Oral Sex means sucking, kissing, touching or caressing the genital organs of the sex partner with mouth or tongue. What you are doing is not oral sex. There are no health risks involved in this (kissing on the neck). Relax.
