I don’t need a textbook definition really, I’m just looking for a nice, concise way to sum up what “sex” is to the human race, taking all standard orientations (meaning I’m not looking to hear about dog-fucking or having a relationship with your can opener) into consideration. It can’t be penetration, since not all couples penetrate. It can’t really be orgasm, can it? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t say I didn’t have sex just because I didn’t have an orgasm.
I usually think sex is more of a statement of intent than anything. I’ve been in a situation or two where I didn’t have an orgasm and there was no penetration (hell, I wasn’t even completely naked), but it was DEFINITELY sex.
What do you guys think?
I know this topic was somewhat brought up in GQ, but that seemed more like a biologically driven question. This one is about where do you draw the line between “fooling around” and “doing it?”
