According to the Oxford English Dictionary (online – my copy is hiding in the back of a pile of boxes) sex is defined as follows:
1 [mass noun] (chiefly with reference to people) sexual activity, including specifically sexual intercourse:he enjoyed talking about sexshe didn’t want to have sex with him
[in singular] euphemistic a person’s genitals.
2either of the two main categories (male and female) into which humans and most other living things are divided on the basis of their reproductive functions:adults of both sexes
[mass noun] the fact of belonging to either the male or female sex:direct discrimination involves treating someone less favourably on the grounds of their sex
the group of all members of either the male or female sex:she was well known for her efforts to improve the social condition of her sex
- 1determine the sex of:each bird would need to be individually sexed
2 (sex something up) informal present something in a more interesting or lively way.
- 3 (sex someone up) informal arouse or attempt to arouse someone sexually
A basic definition to say the least, cosisting of a noun, or a verb – interesting use of the noun in a sentence isn’t it? More on that later.
The truth is, sex is like love, religion, music, food and so on….everyone has their own personal definition and ideas of what it means, feels like, and what is right or wrong, good or bad, boring or shocking.
I am going to use this blog to discuss sex from my own personal research, experience, thoughts, and ideas as a starting point. I’m going to try to look at it from as many different points of view as possible covering it as an academic, social, historical, socio-economical, physical, chemical, moral, and cultural subject among others.
I will keep in anonymous to protect my sources, but stick to the facts.
OK – you’ve been warned. 🙂
