Sex is fun, whether it’s oral sex, anal sex, vaginal sex, or mutual masturbation. Want to know about the many types of sex and the kinds of intercourse you can indulge in? 

types of sex

There are many different kinds of sex, but there are a few that can get you hot in an instant. And they’re the sexiest types of sex you’ve ever indulged in.

Whether it’s a fetish or a craving, if you find yourself in certain circumstances, you can’t help but want to have sex. With anyone!

What is considered sex?

You may laugh and think you KNOW what sex is. After all, we all have done some “research” when we were going through puberty. But do you really know what sex is?

Sex isn’t just penetrative intercourse between a man and a woman. Depending on your sexual orientation, sex includes all sexual activities, from making out to intercourse with multiple partners. All sexual acts should be consensual, comfortable, and enjoyable for everyone involved.

The different types of sex

Now that we know what is considered sex, let’s talk about the different types of sex, and the best ways to perform them.

1. Oral sex

Oral sex, also known as fellatio and cunnilingus, is using the mouth to stimulate your partner’s genitals or anus. This is also known as a blow job, or eating out.

Acts like giving oral sex are often part of foreplay before sexual intercourse, but you can do oral sex during or after, too. This type of sex requires all partners to be in the most comfortable position to help maximize sexual pleasure. One good thing about oral sex is that you can’t get pregnant from it.

However, one big misconception about oral sex is that it’s completely safe. Oral sex also comes with the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

If you’re often involved in casual oral sex, make sure to use condoms or dental dams. If you or your partners have cuts, sores, or ulcers in the mouth or around the anus or genitals, avoid oral sex until they are healed and properly treated to not risk your sexual health.

2. Anal sex

Anal sex is much more than just anal penetration with a penis. Using your finger, tongue, or a sex toy is also considered anal sex.

If you’re adding anal sex to your must-try sex list, safety must be the number one priority. Don’t worry; you can still be safe without sacrificing pleasure.

However, there are certain things to consider if you want to enjoy anal sex. The anus doesn’t provide as much lubrication as the vagina, so lube is a must-have. Silicone and water-based lubes are perfect to use with latex condoms and barriers.

Avoid some oil lubes as they may damage the condom, causing it to break. Like oral sex, women can’t get pregnant from anal sex.

3. Vaginal sex (intercourse)

Vaginal intercourse is a type of penetrative sex when the penis goes inside the vagina. It may sound like the easiest and most common type of sex, but there are a few things you must keep in mind.

You may enjoy certain things while someone else does not, so the pleasure of all partners should be considered during intercourse. Don’t forget foreplay. And as fun as going at it bareback may sound, safety should come before that.

Use protection and communicate. Try different positions and explore as much as you can, as long as it’s consensual for all parties! [Read: 10 best sex positions for beginners to instantly feel like a pro]

4. Outercourse

A lot of people are unfamiliar with this term, so what is outercourse? So, it’s any sexual activity that doesn’t involve penetration. It could be cuddling, body rubbing, mutual masturbation, clitoral stimulation, dry humping, or boob sex. Kissing and massaging also count as outercourse.

No intercourse, no pregnancy, right? Not really. Pregnancy can happen if fluids get into the vagina, so if you touch the vagina after touching semen, there’s still a chance that you’ll get pregnant. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

5. Phone sex

Phone sex or sexting can be quite awkward as you cannot see the person. However, this is a great option for couples who are in long-distance relationships. Just be yourself, relax, and don’t try to be serious the entire time. It’s okay to have a laugh if things get awkward.

Guide your partner, communicate, and make sure you’re having phone sex with someone you really trust. Don’t forget to get comfortable and eliminate all distractions so you won’t ruin the mood by accident. [Read: 60 sexy & dirty things to say to your boyfriend + art of dirty talk]

6. Virtual sex

Virtual sex is any sexual activity engaged in by means of a computer. Watching porn online together, doing online roleplays or exhibitionism is considered virtual sex.

Just like phone sex, it’s a great way for long-distance relationship couples to keep the fire going. It will improve your creativity and push you out of your comfort zone. There are a ton of other reasons why people would have virtual sex, like avoiding the risk of STIs or pregnancy.

However, there’s no guarantee that whoever you’re sending those videos to will be the only one who sees them. People screenshot and screen record things all the time, so you need to be careful who you’re having virtual sex with.

7. Solo sex

For whatever the reason, sometimes you need to do it by yourself. Solo sex is still hot, and can be just as good as partnered sex, if not better. You’re the one who knows your body the best, so take advantage of that. There are so many ways to masturbate and not just get it over with because you’re horny.

Try seducing yourself by lighting candles and putting on relaxing music. Masturbation can also include exploring different toys and props like dildos and vibrators for those with a clitoris, or fleshlights and cock rings for those with a penis – as well as new techniques and locations *like the kitchen or the shower*.

You can also make things special by adding rose petals to your bathtub The more you get to know your body, the easier you can communicate with your partner.

8. Manual/digital sex

Manual/digital sex, also known as fingering and handjobs, is an underrated way to make sex enjoyable. Don’t focus too much on the end goal, because you won’t be able to enjoy it fully.

Digital sex involves using your partner’s reactions to help you understand the best way to stimulate your partner’s erogenous zones. What works for one partner may not work for another.

Most importantly, do not rush it. Take your time and try different techniques to find the ones your partner enjoys the best. [Read: 42 secrets to satisfy a woman in bed & make her wet just thinking of you]

9. Foot sex

Yes, foot sex is a thing despite the stigma of foot fetishes. However, this is completely healthy and normal. As a matter of fact, people are quite open about it in mainstream media. It could be clean feet, dirty feet, feet wearing boots, feet wearing sandals, etc.

So if you’re up for it, foot sex could be fun. Give your partner a foot massage as you lick and suck and smell their toes. You can also use your feet to touch their private parts or to penetrate them.

10. Toy sex

A lot of people think toys are just for alone time, which is far from true. Yes, toys are great for solo sex and virtual sex, but when you know how to use them with your partners, your sex life may improve tremendously.

If you’re not comfortable with sex toys, it’s completely okay. But if you’re willing to try, they can change your life for the better!

11. BDSM sex

BDSM sex describes sex that involves dominance, submission, and control. BDSM stands for “bondage,” “discipline,” “dominance,” and “submission.”

Contrary to popular belief, BDSM should always be enjoyable for all everyone involved. It’s actually a great form of relief for many people. Healthy BDSM can improve intimacy between partners and therefore strengthen your relationship.

The most important part of BDSM is consent. Everyone must give their enthusiastic consent and outline clear boundaries before starting. Because of the intensity of some BDSM scenes, it’s recommended that you have a safe word, so that a partner can say it when they feel uncomfortable.

Types of sexual experiences everyone should have at least once

Coming up with a list of times to have sex is simple. There’s make-up sex, breakup sex, and a million other reasons to have sex. But then, there are a few times when you can’t think of anything but sex, and wouldn’t want anything but sex.

If you’ve experienced any of these sexiest types, lucky you! And if you haven’t, well, you’ve still got the time!

1. Sexual tension sex

This type of sex is what fantasies are made of. You dream about it, and you want it, but just don’t know how to go about it. You shake hands and you linger. Both of you hug each other and you linger. You kiss each other’s cheeks while saying goodbye, and it’s so close to a kiss on the lips each time. You touch each other often, and your hands take a while to move away. [Read: How to flirt by touching]

There’s so much sexual tension in the air you could cut it with a knife. And soon, one day, the sexual tension bubble bursts and you have the sexual tension type of sex.

It’s one of the best sex types you can ever have. It may not last long, and you may do nothing fancy. But the passion and the sexual attraction you experience right there could burn a hole in the ground.

Many people fantasize about this, but they don’t really act on it. But if you ever take this forward, we assure you – the sex will be explosive!

2. Awkward first-time sex

Everyone who’s had sex has experienced this at least once. No matter how many times you’ve done it, first-time sex can be nerve-wracking. You don’t know the person that well, physically at least, so there’s always a fear of messing it up or them not enjoying it with you.

But let’s be real, you can’t expect it to be the best sex you’ve ever had since you two aren’t familiar with each other likes and dislikes yet.

3. Zero-inhibitions sex

What is zero-inhibitions sex? Well, it’s when you totally let go and try things you haven’t tried before, driving both you and your partner completely wild.

In order to let go of inhibitions during sex, you must first learn to love your own body, get comfortable, and get inspired. It’s a lot better when you do it with someone you built trust with, so you and your partner can be comfortable enough to communicate and explore together.

4. The makeup sex

Make-up sex is always one of the most intense and passionate types of sex. You’ll feel more connected than ever knowing you two survived a fight. All the anger and frustration you felt before can be unleashed, and it will be the hottest moment for you and your partner. If one of you was wrong, this is your chance to compensate.

And instead of thinking about the fight, you can remember tonight as the night you have the hottest sex of your life! [Read: How to spice up a relationship: 30 sexy ways to feel loved & horny]

5. Sex that’s so good you accidentally break things

Have you ever had such intense sex that you completely forget where you or and accidentally break things? If you haven’t, that’s one more thing to go on your bucket list!

Besides, it’s a fun story to talk about in the future. You’ll have something to laugh about every time you look at that crack in the table or the rip on your shower curtain.

It’s not fun having your neighbors knocking on your door to complain, but at least everyone knows you’re having the best sex life. [Read: What turns a guy on? 51 subtle sexual turn-ons that arouse men in seconds!]

Trying new positions doesn’t always go the way you plan, especially those that look almost physically impossible. But hey, life is short. Everyone should have a never-again sex position!

9. Shower sex

Shower sex can be dangerous because it’s slippery in there, and you’re wet, and probably shivering. Plus, water is not a lubricant, so it’ll probably make you more dry. But don’t cross it off your bucket list just yet. Shower sex can be hot because of its sense of urgency, and wet bodies are just sensual, aren’t they?

So, set up a non-slip bath mat, use lube, get comfortable, and who knows? You might get addicted to it and want to try again.

10. Public sex

Be careful when having sex in a public place. It doesn’t mean you can have sex anywhere in public. You don’t want to risk getting arrested just for being too horny.

There’s a little voyeur in every one of us, isn’t there? The idea of someone watching you have sex is pretty hot; it makes you feel like you’re starring in a porn movie. Also, the risk of getting caught gets your adrenaline pumping, which increases the pleasure.

Public sex requires trust between you and your partner, and it’s a great way to spice things up, especially for long-term couples.

Try having sex in your backyard or on your balcony, in your car, in a park or wooded area, or an outdoor shower. Of course, you can choose anywhere you like, just try to avoid getting arrested.

11. Quickie

Who said longer was better? Sometimes, a tight schedule makes the hottest sex. There are plenty of tricks for a good quickie, and the most important thing is to always make time for the build-up.

Sending a dirty text or naughty photo before doing it is a great way to set the mood. You should dress for easy access and lube it up to make it even easier.

12. Goodbye sex

Goodbye doesn’t have to be sad. Sometimes it can end with sex.

Whether you’re saying goodbye temporarily or breaking up with someone, there are still a lot of emotions. Put them to good use with passionate goodbye sex. If you’re just saying goodbye for now, it’ll give the two of you something to fantasize about until the next time you’re together.

But if you’re ending things for good, this can confirm if the spark is still there or it’s over before you two are willing to admit it.

13. Rough sex

You can have rough sex and have a safe and pleasurable experience. Rough sex includes various aspects of BDSM, and there’s nothing to be ashamed about if you often fantasize about having rough sex. Y

ou need to make sure that these fantasies are safe, well-communicated, and consensual. All boundaries should be discussed beforehand between everyone involved.

Go on a sex vacation with your partner and explore each other’s deepest and darkest desires. Bring your toys, turn off your phones, and dive into vacation and hotel sex with caution. Most importantly, don’t forget your sunscreen and unsexy plans, too! [Read: 10 vacation ideas for couples to feel closer instantly]

15. Period sex

There’s no need to avoid sex if you’re on your period. Although period sex might be messy, it’s safe and also helps with period cramps. It also makes your period shorter, and you don’t even need to use lube because you’ll be naturally lubricated.

However, if you’re not trying to get pregnant, use protection because you can still get pregnant when you’re on your period.

16. Drunk sex

As long as it’s consensual, alcohol and sex can be a great combination. There’s no fully safe way to drink alcohol with or without sex, so you must be cautious and try to avoid doing it with new partners.

Always have sex with someone you can trust when you’re drunk. Practice enthusiastic consent, and if you can, discuss your expectations when you’re sober.

17. High sex

Having sex when you’re high can increase sensation and pleasure. The number one benefit of having high sex is that you can get out of your head and into your body. It’s easier to have sex if you don’t get distracted by a million thoughts. The biggest downside is that you can overconsume when you’re high.

So, be responsible adults, and of course, always prioritize consent! [Read: I need sex! 13 signs your high libido has become sexual addiction]

18. Dirty-talking sex

This is one of the sexy types of sex that starts off with words. Two friends or new lovers start talking, and soon the talking gets dirty.

And you know how this goes. Phone sex is good, but the dirty-talking type of sex where you’re face-to-face will leave the couch wet. Ever tried this? This type of sex gives you a huge rush of anticipation and sexual urges, and the sex is oh-so-wicked!

[Read: How to talk dirty]

19. Getting drunk with friends sex

This is group sex of another kind. It happens all the time, and it’s hot. Have you ever been to a house party? Of course, you have.

A few rounds of drinks and tequila later, all house parties with guys and girls go the same way. It starts to lean towards sex, no matter what age. We just can’t help it, bring in a few drinks and a few sexy people, and all anyone wants to talk about is sex. Well, unless, you’re the geeky torchlight holder who loves talking about ghosts.

When we’re kids, we play spin the bottle and truth or dare. When we get older, we play the same games. But it gets sexier and better. The dares are so much more revealing and bold, and the truth is such a turn-on.

Even if it’s not a bit of truth or dare or spin the bottle, it’s groping time. Couples and singles who want to mingle will start groping each other in drunken fervor.

And soon, one couple gets bold and starts pushing t-shirts up and pulling pants down. And then you get it – one of the best types of sex that’s worth talking about for years to come.

20. Sleeping with another couple sex

This is an exciting type of sex that starts shy, and ends confusing. Have you and your partner ever gone on a vacation with another couple? And when you do that, have you ever shared a room? It can happen when you’ve had one drink too many or stayed in one room with the other couple for far too long.

[Read: Public display of affection etiquette]

When two couples lie down in the same room, the air starts to fill with sexual tension. No one knows why, but it just happens. One thing leads to another, and before you know it, you’re talking dirty with the other couple and pushing each other to do more.

Just making out and having sex in front of another couple that’s having sex is a high that can hardly ever be achieved.

Both couples lie in the same bed, and at times, body parts touch, and sometimes, more things happen. But if you’re looking for one of the sexier types of sex, there are few things that can beat this. [Read: How to start swinging]

21. Masseuse sex

Have you ever had a full-body massage in the privacy of your room? There’s a big chance you have. Again, have you had a sexy masseur of the opposite sex moving their hands all over you?

There are two kinds of massages, the clean kind and the other kind. If you’ve ever had a full-body massage where you let the masseur’s hands rove almost all over your body, you’ll know how sexy it can feel.

There you are, lying completely naked in front of a stranger as that person touches you in places only your partner has touched you. It’s exciting, and as the masseur’s hands linger near your inner thighs, it creates ripples of pleasure that can give you some warmth on a lonely night.

Now having sex with a new person, like the masseur, is a definite fantasy. But whether it’s with a real masseur or with your partner role-playing with you after the masseur’s gone, that depends on whether you’re single or in love. [Read: Happy ending massage]

22. Taboo sex

If there’s ever a type of sex that makes for some of the best fantasies, it’s taboo sex. It’s deviant, but it’s one of the sexiest types of sex. What makes taboo sex so sexy is the fact that it’s so taboo. It’s taboo to even voice it.

But we’ve all been there; be it having sexual feelings for someone you shouldn’t have feelings for, or entertaining the thought of cheating sex. [Read: How to have sex with a friend]

Have you been out with your girlfriend or your wife, and met a friend of hers who’s so incredibly sexy you can’t take your eyes off her? Or have you ever spent an evening out with your brother-in-law or with your husband’s best friend when your husband’s away on a business trip?

Sometimes, you can’t help but wonder how they look naked or how sexy it would be to sleep with them. And worse, at times you have a couple of drinks and even casual touches start to feel like horny, flirty touches. Ever been there?

Having sex with someone you really shouldn’t be having sex with can make you reach for the skies faster than a space rocket in overdrive.

23. Passionate sex

We’ve gone through the sexiest types of sex, but we still haven’t introduced true love sex into the picture. Well, romantic couples may frown and wonder why, so we’ve given the sexiest type of sex to loving passionate sex: the type of sex that’s shared between two lovers who are truly in love. [Read: How to have sensuous sex]

Now quite frankly, bedroom sex between two people who are deeply in love for several years can never really feel as sexy and desirable as a fling. You know everything there is under the blanket, and you’ve seen it every night for years. But there’s something else that makes this type of sex the sexiest kind.

When you’re truly in love with your partner, the sex is passionate. Both of you know what either of you likes in bed. The sex is more loving and intimate, and if you indulge in acts like tantric sex, it can be so passionate and orgasm-inducing.

And there we have it, all you need to know about different types of sex. Have you tried most of the ones mentioned in this article already? It’s time you started adding new ones to your own list!
