Non-penetrative sex (also known as outercourse) is sexual activity without vaginal, anal, and possibly oral penetration, as opposed to intercourse. The terms Mutual masturbation and Frottage are also used, but with slightly different emphases. NPS and outercourse are rather new, not generally accepted terms, which is why some subsumed practices usually are still called "intercourse".

No bodily fluids are intended to be exchanged, and outercourse is therefore often considered a practice of safer sex as well as of birth control (see below for exceptions). Outercourse in preparation for intercourse can form part of foreplay.
