Define “sex”

What comes to your mind when you think of the word sex? How do you define it? I am sure if you asked 100 people this question you might get a lot of different answers.

On dictionary.com one definition of the word “sex” is sexual intercourse, which is defined as genital contact especially the insertion of the penis into the vagina.

But then where does ORAL sex come in or how about ANAL sex? Where do those fit? They have the word sex in them don’t they?

According to an article in the WashingtonPost.com a study was done in 2007 at the University of Kentucky in which researchers asked college students what actions needed to be performed in order for them to be considered sex. According to the study…

  • 98% consider it sex when there is vaginal intercourse
  • 78% consider it sex when there is anal sex
  • 20% consider it sex when there is oral sex
  • 9% consider it sex when there is intimate touching
  • 6% consider it sex when there is deep kissing

I think we can all agree that deep kissing isn’t really my idea of sex, but check out those numbers for anal and oral sex! What do YOU think? If you have an opinion on this e-mail me at thatssexual20@gmail.com and let me know.

Sex quote of the day: “The good thing about masturbation is that you don’t have to get dressed up for it.”
