Actually, that's perfect. Well, other than the word friend. I would have gone with "someone you tolerate because you don't like doing things on your own"

Of course, I'm a cold, heartless cynic Confused

And then we'll be too busy trying to decipher it to ever have sex again. Might also lose the will to, if we do decipher it...

Elk, yep, I so went there, too.

RE: What is sex?
To my mind "sex" is anything between two people that involves genital stimulation of either party alone or both; not necessarily to completion - although I'm sure that's usually preferred. Flirting, dirty talking, sending suggestive texts - it's not sex if nobody's genitals are stimulated. It might be very sexual in nature, but it isn't sex.

Now - what constitutes "cheating" is perhaps a more nuanced discussion and something any couple that's trying to be monogamous really has to figure out for themselves. One couple's definition may be very different from another's. But I believe one can cheat without involving actual sex.

But in general, I think sex is a broad term used to describe many specific acts. That said, when someone asks "How many people have you been with?" I think oftentimes people take that to mean "How many people have you went all the way with?" and therefore leave out any other sexual activity.

This.

But I would also say "sex" means different things to different people. Some people use the term strictly for intercourse and might call everything else "sexual activity", but not "sex". Others, including me, agree with what jennybee said. For example, I would say that two lesbians can have "sex", but unless they use a prop, there is no penetration so that negates the more strict usage of the term IMO.

Things I don't miss: Wasting an hour in church every Sunday and holy day, boring sermons, wasting time praying frequently, wasting money on church donations, fearing hell, sanctioned bigotry. Now if we could only get religious meddling with politics and laws on that list. Dodgy

RE: What is sex?
Sex is like hard-core pornography.

I may not be able to define it, but I know it when I see it.

RE: What is sex?
I think it pretty much has to involve at least one set of genitals. If it doesn't it may still be cheating but it's essentially just some form of live action fantasy.
