Hello me and my girlfriend are both 18 and we now want to be sexually active but still do not want to risk a pregnancy
Are there any sexual activities we can partake in that won't risk a pregnancy

Yes. Your clothing is a barrier, preventing genital to genital contact.

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Any sexual activity that does not involve ejaculate (which contains sperm) getting in (or on) the opening to the vagina is safe. If you decide to have sexual intercourse, condoms are very effective at preventing pregnancy (if used correctly each and every time you have sex) and also offer protection against STD's.
