Sex is one of the best recreational activities.
Many of us especially in these last days, have been practicing and experimenting with so many ways to achieve pleasure, there may be
some that we may have missed and others we can do more of.
Additionally, if you’re wondering if any given sex act is really a thing, keep in mind that everything is a thing.
In other words, if you can dream it, you can do it — or at least rest assured that someone else has probably tried to.
With that being said, here are 17 sex terms you probably didn’t learn or didn’t know was a thing
17 Sex Terms You Should Know
- Pearl Necklace
A pearl necklace is what results when someone ejaculates on or around their partner’s neck or chest.

- Impact Play
Impact play refers to any impact on the body done for sexual gratification, from spanking to whips and crops.
When engaging in impact play, remember to pick a safe word and continually check in with one another to ensure the level of pain is desirable.

Squirting is when a woman ejaculates fluid during sex.
It is not, nor is it “just peeing.”
The fluid involved comes partly from Skene’s glands, also known as the “female prostate”.
Not everyone squirts, but everyone has the ability to squirt.
Among those who do, some squirt from clitoral stimulation and some squirt from G-spot stimulation.
You may be familiar with cognitive behavioral therapy, a helpful form of talk therapy.
However, within the world of kink, CBT refers to “cock and ball torture.”
This form of CBT can be therapeutic for men interested in having a dominatrix inflict pain on their genitals, through the use of ropes, whips, or even chastity devices.
Pegging refers to when a woman penetrates a man anally with a strap-on dildo.
Queening is just a glamorous name for sitting on someone’s face.
There’s nothing more to it than that.
Scissoring, also called tribadism or Tribbing, is most often thought of as the territory of same-sex, female-identified couples.
It’s usually considered to be two partners rubbing their vulvas against each other’s, but can also be defined as one partner rubbing their vulva against other body parts of their partner’s including the thighs and butt.
In the so-called “classic” scissor position, partners’ legs intersect so that they look like — you guessed it — scissors.
- Edge Play
When you first hear the term “edge play,” it’s easy to assume it refers to extreme sex acts that literally involve an edge of some sort, such as knives or needles (and yes, some people consensually incorporate those things into sex).
But no sharp objects need to be involved in this type of edge play.
The term means kinky sexual acts that push your boundaries (consensually) to the edge, which can be exhilarating for some.
What is considered edge play differs from person to person, as we all have our own boundaries and limits.
For some, psychological play such as name-calling may be edge play.
If you are going to try pushing your boundaries, please do so with a partner you trust and use a safe word.
Figging is one of those sexual acts that are so interesting it’s fun to know what it means, but you have to wonder if anyone actually does it.
It is the act of inserting a piece of peeled ginger into someone’s butthole, which would burn, sting, and be quite painful.
The term also can refer to the general infliction of consensual pain on the anus.
Aftercare is a sexual practice that everyone should be doing, whether you’re having kinky sex or vanilla sex.
It’s a term created by the kink community and simply means checking in with your partner(s) after sex to make sure all parties felt good and safe about what went down and taking care of one another emotionally and physically.
This can mean cuddling, bringing ice to the submissive partners if there are any spanking bruises, and talking about what you liked or what you didn’t like.
It really just means checking in post-sex, and if anything did happen that one or all parties felt weird about, making sure it doesn’t happen the next time.
To felch is to suck up semen out of an orifice (using a straw is optional) or from another sexual partner.
For instance, your partner may ejaculate inside your anus and then suck their own semen out of the anus with their mouth; they then may or may not swallow.
Or your partner may ejaculate in your vagina or another sex partner’s vagina and you suck the cum from the vagina.
Bukkake is both a sex act in which multiple men, typically three or more, ejaculate all over a woman.
Docking is when two uncircumcised men get together sexually.
The first pulls his foreskin back and holds it while the second stretch theirs open and outward as far as possible
over the head and shaft of the first partner’s penis.
Cuckolding is when a person in a relationship stands by as their partner has sex with someone else.
There are many ways to cuck: The “cuckold” may look on while tied up in a corner, or the cuckold’s
partner may go out on their own, have sex, and report back.
There is usually an element of humiliation involved: For instance, a wife may tell her husband all
about how her other partner has a massive penis and can satisfy her in ways her husband cannot.
Yes, some men are turned on by being told they suck in bed.
- Water Sports
The term refers to the incorporation of urine in erotic play.
A golden shower, for example, is when one partner pees on the other.
You can try this kind of play for the first time but if you are a little nervous, peeing on your partner (or being peed on) in the shower is a good way to dip your toe in the water, metaphorically speaking.
Fisting is when one partner inserts their entire hand or fist into their partner’s vagina (or anus, for the highly talented).
If you enjoy intense penetration but are dating someone with a small penis, remember that they have an entire fist to use on you.
And no, a penchant for fisting won’t make your vagina loose.
If you’d like to try it, go slow and use plenty of lube; the fister can also wear a latex glove to keep things extra sanitary and help the hand slide into the orifice. And as with any sex act, enthusiastic consent and in-the-moment communication are key to enjoyment by all parties.
OK, so this one may not be a sex act, exactly, but it frequently happens during sex.
Queefing is when air escapes from the vagina, often during or after penetration, and makes a farting sound.
Now that you have graduated and formally introduced to the sex lingo.
Go have some fun!
