Sexual intercourse - Wikipedia
Remember the good old days when you defined every sexual act by the bases—first base was kissing, second base was a little under the sweater action, and so on? Back then, defining "sex" was as easy as counting up to home base; either you went all the way or you didn't. Unsurprisingly, sex has gotten a whole lot more complicated since then, probably because we've learned there's a heck of a lot more going on than four simple steps. Criteria for defining acts as "sex" or "not sex" changes from person to person, and it can depend on who's doing it, which body parts are involved, and even whether or not we orgasm, according to a new study published in The Journal of Sex Research. Researchers at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City surveyed participants men and women online about what they considered to be sex. They presented participants with 21 different types of sexual acts—including penetrative vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, 69, simultaneous masturbation, deep kissing, cybersex, and others—and asked them to rate the acts as "definitely sex," "probably sex," "probably not sex," and "definitely not sex. Half of the participants received the sections in reverse order.
