All About Sex Essay

1767 words - 7 pages

Have you ever had sex? How old is acceptable to start having sex? How does your society accept or resent sex? What is sex? What do you call sex? What is a man’s perception on sex, compared to a woman’s? I think of sex way different than say my grandparents do. These are just some of the questions that I think of when I think of the real meaning of sex.
How did sex come about in history? “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply…” (The New King James Version Bible, Genesis. 1:28). Sex is dated back before Christ in the Bible. Sex was used simply to multiply creation and make more of man, not used as fun but still accepted. “The aversion to sex by early Christian leaders extended to marriage being viewed as a crime against God. Opposition to marriage diminished in the Middle Ages, as the Church grew more secure. But sex was still viewed with disapproval, even within marriage...” (History).
What is sex? The definition from the year of late 14c. that comes up in an etymology dictionary is “state of being either male or female, gender” (O.E.D.). That was then, but that’s not at all what I’m talking about. I’m talking about this definition, “intercourse.” (Sex). That sounds easy enough, but really it’s much more than that. What does it really mean? I like to think that sex is much more than just the penis entering the vagina. Times have updated people. There is now vaginal sex, where the penis enters the vagina. There is anal sex, where the penis enters the anis. There is oral sex, where the mouth, tongue, teeth and even throat are used. There is phone sex, where people stimulate themselves while listening to someone on the phone. There is cyber sex, where people stimulate themselves while engaging in talking to or watching other people over the internet. There is kinky sex, where people use different props and places to further their excitement and arousal. There is sex with toys, where vibrators, dildos, beads, nipple stimulators, anal plugs, anal probes, cock rings, chains, eggs, lubes, massagers, oils, creams, lotions, exc. are used. There is sense sex, where nothing is actually entered into the body, instead your senses are turned on to their fullest. I think sex can be any type of intimacy that gets two people aroused and can cause an orgasm. I love the fact that sex has broadened so much, and so openly, over the years. I like it all.
Why can’t people just say the word sex? The word sex sounds so dirty and unacceptable to most people, that they would rather call sex by these other crazy words! It doesn’t make any since to me. I have heard it described in many different ways. Many ways I found in another dictionary such as “banging, boinking, boning, bumbing, bump nasties, bump uglies, shag, fuck, hump, screw, boot knockin’, do, get it on, get laid, get some booty, hit it, lay pipe, make babies, make woopie, make love, poke, poon, put out, tapping ass, the old in-out, twerk something,” (Words, 1-2). and more. I...
