conventional sex

A generic term for standard sexual activity (also referred to as “vanilla sex”), which differs according to the group being surveyed. For heterosexual couples, conventional sex would generally involve penile, vaginal, oral, and for some, anal activity. For homosexual couples, conventional sex is limited to mutual masturbation, oral and anal sex. Conventional sex does not include group, BDSM, kinky or fetish activities.
