Dating and petting
This is the first sexual behavior discussed so far that carries the risk of pregnancy or infection of a serious STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease), though this is not common. We've already talked about the risks of deep kissing, and there are no consequences to touching above the waist, or touching below the waist on the outside of clothing (some might argue that the risk to light petting is that it leads to heavy petting and that teens just cannot control themselves and will end up having intercourse - we disagree that teens have no control and believe that better and earlier, constant sex education will help teens remain in control of their hormones).The greater risk is with 'heavy petting', petting below the waist and inside the pants and underwear, and then only if the same hand touches both person's genitals (meaning that when touching yourself and then your partner, you can transfer body fluids, including sperm, to your partner's genitals).

However, it does not change the fact that the act itself was gravely wrong and one should be very careful not to let it happen again.
