|Sexual penetration |
Sexual penetration is a sexual activity that involves the entry into a person's bodily orifice, such as the vagina, anus or mouth, with a body part of another person or an object.
When a penis penetrates a woman's vagina, it is generally called vaginal or sexual intercourse. When a penis penetrates another's anus, it is called anal sex or anal intercourse. Penetration of the mouth by a penis is a form of oral sex called fellatio. Oral sex also includes penetration of the vagina or vulva by the tongue of another person, which are forms of cunnilingus. The tongue may also penetrate the anus, which is a variation of anilingus. If one or more fingers are used to penetrate an orifice, it is called fingering or digital penetration. Sexual penetration of an orifice with an object, such as a dildo, vibrator or other sex toy, by one person on another person is another form of sexual penetration, but may or may not be referred to as sexual intercourse. Often portrayed in pornographic films, acts involving sexual penetration may include double penetration, where one person is simultaneously penetrated in multiple orifices by two partners.
Some jurisdictions use the term sexual penetration synonymously with sexual intercourse. Penetrative sex crimes may also be distinguished from non-penetrative sex crimes, with penetrative sex acts being regarded as more serious than non-penetrative sexual activities. Laws may additionally specify particular forms of sexual penetration as part of the offense; for example:
"Unlawful sexual penetration in the first degree" is a felony that occurs where the offender "penetrates the vagina, anus or penis of another with any object other than the penis or mouth of the actor", if the victim is "subjected to forcible compulsion", or is "under 12 years of age", or "is incapable of consent by reason of mental defect, mental incapacitation or physical helplessness"
—Unlawful sexual penetration in the first degree, Oregon Statutes § 163.411
In the United Kingdom, sexually penetrating a relative is an offence.
Various forms of penetration have at times been considered obscene, and been prohibited. Works containing such penetrations may be considered pornography.
