People choose to wait to have sex with a romantic partner for a wide variety of reasons. If you’re one of many people who have made this decision, you can still enjoy sensual activities with your partner without having intercourse.
Have a sincere, personal conversation: Emotional intimacy is key for a serious relationship. Also, you can use this time to discuss each other’s “comfort zone” about physical intimacy. Touch each other in simple, non-sexual ways, such as hugging, holding hands, or snuggling in bed.
