God calls it “uncovering one's nakedness.” One OT expression for "sexual contact" was "uncovering the nakedness" of another which was "looking upon or touching the parts of another's body that was (normally) "covered." When God forbid sexual intimacy between certain family members, the words he used to describe this sexual behavior was the Hebrew expression translated “uncovering one’s nakedness.” This occurs in Lev.18:6-18, Lev.-21, and Gen..
In spite of this, Noah who was a righteous man had only one wife and was faithful to her (Gen.6:1, 18). “Sexual immorality” is a very general expression that can include adultery in it. Rom. says not to provide yourself an opportunity for the flesh to lust. What is translated “sexual relations" is literally "uncover nakedness." Uncovering another's nakedness outside of marriage is sexual immorality.

It is like a rose bud that is opened in marriage and must be opened only a little before they are married, lest it develop their intimacy before the proper time. You are trying to have married intimacy and the benefits of God's wonderful plan of being married without actually being married, which God requires. If you are not mature enough to actually have gotten married, you're not mature enough to pretend your married.
