Fantastic piece, Maggie!
I think this all comes down to personal preference, period.
I don’t think someone can tell me what sex is, for ME. Just like I can’t tell you what sex is, for YOU.
For me, it’s penetration by either a toy or a penis. Anything else is foreplay, being sensual, teasing, touching, whatever you want to call it. It’s sexual, but it isn’t sex.
But that’s ME.
For someone like your friend, it sounds like all that would be sex, if she were nude.
I’m with you on nudity. I have been nude in front of A LOT of people that I didn’t engage in anything sexual with, so woah, I would have a much larger number of ‘partners’ than I already do!! And though I don’t know the number, it would be huge. ha
Thank you for sharing this thought provoking piece. ❤
