Online or phone sex

You can have sex with your partner even without her physical presence.  Call her over the phone, or have an online chat with your partner, then talk dirty about each other.  Tell your partner what you would do to her once the two of you become together physically.

Nipple and breast stimulation

The chest has different sensation points that can stimulate you sexually, much so if you let your partner caress it.

Erotic massage

Some consider it as the first step to sex, while others view it as the most intimate activity.  Kissing is also a safe sexual practice since transmission of STDs through kissing is very rare.  However, do note that some diseases can be contracted through saliva.

Using a sex toy

Using a dildo or vibrator can be viewed as similar to masturbation.  It is important to put a condom on the toy while using it to avoid unnecessary bruising.  You also need to change condoms when sharing sex toys.

Oral sex

Cunnilingus should be performed with a barrier such as a dental dam or plastic wrap.

Vaginal contact

The fingers can substitute for the penis (and some women say the use of fingers is even sexually better than the male organ). 

Put two or three of you or your partner’s fingers in a condom, or put the whole hand in a latex glove (with talcum powder rinsed off).  Remember to dispose both the condom and glove after use.
