Mutual masturbation is one of the most popular alternative to intercourse. By this token, both partners stimulate each other’s genital and other erogenous zones in a bid to climax together and simulate sex. Oral sex is another common alternative to intercourse since each person can easily bring his or her partner to orgasm without penetration.

Couples often indulge in non-penetrative sex in an attempt to recreate the motions and sensations simulated during intercourse. It is also known as 'outercourse.’ It is non-penetrative sex may involve fingering, frottage, erotic massage, footjob, mammary intercourse, or nipple stimulation.

Contrary to popular belief, non-penetrative sex can also increase the risk of sexually-transmitted infections like herpes, genital warts, HPV, syphilis, or scabies.
