Docking is a sex act where two people use their foreskins to connect their penises. The practice is most common among homosexual and bisexual couples, but some heterosexual people also enjoy docking with friends.
Two uncircumcised people or one uncircumcised person and a circumcised partner can practice docking. Both people have full erections to enjoy docking. They either stand, sit, or lie down and put the heads of their penises together, tip to tip.
If two uncircumcised people want to practice docking, one person pulls their foreskin back and holds it in place. Meanwhile, their partner stretches their own foreskin open and pulls it forward over the head and shaft of the exposed partner’s penis. Moving the foreskin over the exposed partner’s penis holds both penises together in place. If one person is circumcised, their uncircumcised partner connects their penises by pulling their foreskin forward over the circumcised head.
Two people with circumcised penises may use a masturbation sleeve that is open on both ends to simulate docking with foreskins. Both circumcised penises are inserted into the masturbation sleeve, which is then moved back and forth to stimulate both penises simultaneously.
Once joined together, the couple may thrust backward and forwards, gaining sexual pleasure from the friction caused by the giving partner’s tightly stretched foreskin moving over the head of the receiving partner’s penis. Alternatively, one or both people may masturbate the penises. Ejaculation often occurs, but it isn’t an essential part of docking. People who practice docking say the practice can lead to very intense and powerful orgasms. As docking puts couples face to face, it can also be a good way to build intimacy.
This slang term comes from the original use of the word docking, the joining together of two space vehicles. During docking, two penises come together, just like a space shuttle and space station do. Docking is sometimes called male docking or penis docking. Some people distinguish between dry docking, before ejaculation, and wet docking, which occurs if the couple ejaculates at the same time during docking.
