Digital sex, or digital penetration, refers to penetrative sex using the fingers to penetrate either the vagina or anus. It is practiced by all genders. It can be used as foreplay or as a way to achieve orgasms. The dexterity of the fingers can make them an excellent tool for precise prostate and G-spot stimulation, which can lead to powerful orgasms.
Digital sex may also, less commonly, refer to sexual activity conducted over a digital medium, such as online, via video stream or chat.
This term is also used in the context of criminal law (particularly in the U.K. and Australia), wherein penetrative sex crimes may be considered more serious than non-penetrative ones.
