What I Learned From the "What is Sex?" Poll|

I completely disagree, as you might have guessed. I don't approve of the idea of making one particular act "sex" and all others merely "sexual." I don't think there's any value in defining it that way and I find it not only sexist but extremely limiting in lots of different ways. I don't think that lesbians need to have sex for our relationships to have validity - I think we do have sex, both within relationships and casual sex. And I think a great many heterosexuals - particularly heterosexual women - are suckered into thinking that a sex act that is in no way the most satisfying to them is *the* act and everything else is just "foreplay" or "afterplay" and less important.
I'm very glad that most of the people who responded disagreed with you, too. And I'm certainly not raising my kids to think that penile vaginal intercourse is "sex" and all other sex acts are not.
