Mutual masturbation is a sexual act in which two or more people manually stimulate their own genitals or their partner's genitals. Some more common acts employed during mutual masturbation include hand jobs and fingering. Some individuals may also use toys like vibrators and masturbation sleeves. Both homosexual and heterosexual couples and groups can engage in mutual masturbation.
This practice is often used before a couple feels emotionally ready to have intercourse but still wants to experience sexual stimulation together. Mutual masturbation can also be used during foreplay.
Because there is no genital contact during mutual masturbation and no fluids exchanged, this practice is often viewed as a form of safe sex. However, if semen and vaginal fluids are exchanged during mutual masturbation, this could lead to pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections. This can happen when a man ejaculates after stimulating himself and then stimulates his female partner.
