ICYMI, penetration isn't the end all when it comes to sex. And while, sure, it can feel good to have someone or something inside you, penetrative sex simply isn't what brings everyone over the hump to, you know, orgasm. In fact, there are plenty of people out there who don't really enjoy penetrative sex. And even for those who do enjoy it, there's something to be said about dedicating time to exploring and experimenting with pleasure that isn't all about going in deep. Alternatively, you might also want another option aside from penetrative sex due to trauma, body dysphoria, or other medical conditions that make penetrative sex uncomfortable, says Jenkins Hall. That said, whatever part of the spectrum you fall on when it comes to your non-penetrative sexual desires, there are plenty of sex positions out there that will be perfect for you to try, either with a partner or all on your own.

A reminder: the vagina is the internal bit, the vulva is the bit you can see — so the tip of the clitoris and the labia.
To say we live in a culture obsessed with sexualization and the sensationalization thereof is an understatement. And in this profoundly distracted spirit of sensationalization, patriarchal culture in general, and mainstream porn culture in particular, is obsessed with the act of penetration. Don't get me wrong. I'm a huge fan of penetration in its many forms.
