Paraphilia

A sexual obsession or intense excitement, usually over an object or particular sex act. Many people have unique sexual tastes or preferences for certain acts, positions or objects, but when it leads to the exclusion of other forms of sexual fulfillment, or when it disturbs other people, it becomes a paraphilia. Examples of this, as defined by the DSM-IV, are Fetishism, Voyeurism, Pedophilia, Frotteurism, Exhibitionism, Sadism, Masochism and Transvestite Fetishism.

Also referred to as Sexual Perversion (judgmental).

Pearl Necklace

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

Some of the symptoms for PID are cramping, tenderness, or pain in the pelvic area. In th long-term, untreated PID can leave a woman infertile.

Penetration

Any kind of sex that involves insertion of an object or body part into a man or woman’s body. This includes insertion of a penis, a tongue, a finger/s, and even toes into the vagina, anus or mouth of a partner. Penetration can also include use of a dildo, or other object into any of these orifices. All forms of penetration can be enjoyable, if both partners are willing and ready for the act, or they can be painful and discomforting if they are undesired or forced.

Any penetration that bring one person’s body fluids into contact with another run the risk of spreading STIs.

Penis

The male sex organ which is used to implant semen inside a woman’s vagina as well as to urinate. Unlike the female genitalia, it is positioned outside of his body, leaving it more vulnerable, but also providing an obvious indication of his sexual arousal level; when a man becomes aroused, many blood vessels in his penis engorge with blood, making the soft tissue feel hard and allowing the penis to be inserted into his partner. The penis is sensitive to touch, whether by insertion, masturbation or contact with skin or other sensual material.

Perineum

The small, delicate strip of skin between the bottom of the genitals and the anus of both women and men. Because it is highly sensitive, it provides sexual pleasure when delicately touched. In men, rubbing of the perineum provides indirect stimulation of the prostate gland.

Period

See Menstruation.

Petit Mort

French expression meaning the “little death” which refers to Orgasm.

Petting

Touching another person’s breasts and genital area for sexual pleasure. Also sometimes referred to as Second Base and Third Base

Polyamory

Romantic and sexual relationships in which there are three or more people deliberately and consensually involved. Some such relationships involve marriage of some or all partners, but since Bigomy is illegal in most countries, usually third and further partners are not legally tied to the group. In some religious groups and cults, the sectoral leaders perform ceremonies to declare more than 2 individuals married in the eyes of their community. Polyamory usually involves a male and several females but can also involve any other combination of sexes.

PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome)

A set of physical and emotional symptoms, experienced by many women in the week or so leading up to her period. Among the many symptoms are back and lower abdominal cramps, sore breasts, bloating, water retention, headaches, depression and a whole range of mood states. Different women have different expressions and intensity of PMS and they may have it one month and not the next.

PMS can be helped by staying away from caffeine, taking certain vitamins and minerals, eating healthily and doing exercise.

Polyurethane Condom

A condom made out of a thin rubber-like material called polyurethane. These condoms, although significantly more expensive than the regulars, are good for people who are allergic to latex. Th material allows for the transfer of heat, unlike latex, and therefore polyurethane feels more natural. Female condoms are also made of polyurethane.

POG

Post-orgasmic glow, the elated state of being in the hours or days following experiencing a good orgasm or series of orgasms.

Pornography

Any sexually explicit photography, movie, book, or other image. Pornography is differentiated from Erotica, which is sexual material with a lower level of exposure. Pornography is generally supposed to be restricted to an adult audience (age 18 and over), but because it is so widely available on the internet, it is now even more difficult to regulate. The increase in its exposure and availability has built the pornography industry in the last decade, but no-one is sure of the full value of this industry.

There are various forms of opposition to pornography. The religious opposition believes that it is immodest and immoral, whereas the feminist opposition sees it as abusive of the actors, especially the females. Sex Education studies have shown that pornography sends inaccurate and dangerous messages about the reality of sexuality and is harmful to young and older people who are misinformed by it. Also referred to as Porn or Hardcore.

For girls, it involves development of breasts, public hair, changes in body shape and the start of menstruation. For boys, the penis and testicles grow, the voice deepens, the body grows, hair appears all around the body and there is a marked increase in his sex drive.

Pudendum

A woman’s external genitals. Also known as the Vulva.

Pulling Out

When a man removes his penis from the vagina, anus, or mouth before he ejaculates. Some couples use it as a method of birth control but it is not a very safe method, neither for preventing pregnancy nor STIs, not only because it demands excellent control, but also because sperm and STIs can be present in Pre-Cum. It is another term for Withdrawal or Coitus Interuptus.

Pussy
