Intercrural sex, often called non-penetrative sex, is a type of sex in which one male partner places his penis between the legs or thighs of another male partner often while lubricated. There is no penetration with intercrural sex, which makes it a technique of choice by men who desire to be intimate with another man without having anal sex. Intercrural sex is also considered safer sex since there is no internal bodily fluid exchange.

It is believed that intercrural sex between men dates back to ancient Greece.
