The main question I have in relation to this is why do you feel guily - because of what or whom?
Given your ages it is perfectly normal for you to be experiencing the feelings you are, and to want to become intimate with a partner. Exploring yourself sexually is also a very nomal part of adolescence which most religions also acknowledge.
If the two of you have decided to not have sexual intercourse before marriage that is your choice entirely - but you need to think through the reasons for this, and why you have taken this decision that you feel comfortable with it.
At 19 a guy can become aroused very easily and it does not always mean that foreplay has been involved, merely thinking about things can cause an erection.
Try to not get too caught up in a cycle of guilt - being sexual is a very normal part of being human, and you need to place within the context of your own beliefs and decisions.
