Simple question, in a private poll.

I don't count oral sex when counting sex partners, I consider it fooling around. I am straight though, I think if I were to be seriously intimate with a girl I would count her as a sex partner.

You can bet the other half of your oral encounter considers it sex!

I think it diminishes woman-woman relations to say it "isn't sex." It degrades lesbians and bisexual women to say, "It doesn't count." Of course, if the two of you are engaged in a sexual act and are both enjoying it, it's SEX!

It's the same line of thought that says, "Oh, if I have sex with an other woman, it isn't cheating on my boyfriend." YES it is! It's the emotional, as well as physical interaction which causes it to be "sex." As well as the fact that oral sex is a form of sex.

I count it as a form of sex.. why else would it have sex in it's name? but that's my opinion.

well, for me, I feel that if you orgasm or your intent was to orgasm, then it was sex

Oral sex is definitely sex, but if I were asked "how many people have you had sex with," I'd certainly answer with the number of partners with whom I've had intercourse. If the question were "with how many people have you done sexual acts?", then I would include both.

Sex is exchanging pleasure, imo.

I believe it is sex and I would count it as being a sexual partner, but I would not count strap-ons or oral in general towards virginity.

To me, oral sex is sex. Hence the name. If your loved one gived 50 people oral pleasure it would be a lot different from him/her kissing 50 people...

I agree with this. It sounds a bit clinical, but if you are having intimate contact with another person with the intent of deriving pleasure, it's sex. Generally, orgasm is the goal, but I don't think it has to go that far to qualify as sex for me.

I don't think of it as SEX, as when I hear "sex" i generally think PIV sex. It's a sex act, of course, but I feel like it's a step down from vaginal or anal sex.

I guess it really just depends. I would count it, but me being who I am would say, "Well, I have had penetration intercourse with so and so many and oral with so and so many." So many people see things differently I would have to verify those things with details.

Are you saying that unless sex involves a penis, it is not considered "sex?"

Because you just said you don't count it unless it's Penis in Vagina or Penis in Anus. Therefore any act without PIV or PIA (both acts containing "penis") do not count as sex in your book?

I think that is very wrong and closed-minded.

Oral sex is sex. One of the reasons is because oral sex can transmit STD's. It is an exchange of bodily fluids, between at least 1 other individual. Any time you are exchanging bodily fluids you are exposing yourself to risks of STD's.

It is very misleading to not label oral sex or any other sexual acts involving exposure to or exchange of fluids between individuals as "sex."

If people wanted to only limit it to PIV sex, they shouldn't call it "sex." Because "sex," even in biological terms, is a process of combining and mixing genetic traits. That does not necessarily involve any penetration (in-vitro fertilization in humans, and countless animal species do not reproduce using any sort of "penetration")

PIV sex in humans should be called "coitus," or "sexual intercourse." However, the original question is, "do you think oral sex is sex?" Obviously, the correct response in the linguistic, biological, society's and more broadly, the HUMAN definition, is YES. ORAL SEX IS SEX.

I voted "I'm a female and yes, I count them but other". I don't count oral as sex when it comes to men but I count oral/fingering/etc. when it comes to women. Idk why. I guess just because neither of us has a penis (unless you count a strap-on, which I haven't used yet) so it's all we can do? I really don't know. XP

Sex is not originally PIV. Sex is an inclusive term that covers all types of sexual behaviors. If you wanted to specify PIV, you should say "coitus," which is a specific type of sexual behavior.

The IT-Guy started a very good response. I lean more to that side of the issue. Kendra30752 said it right, in my opinion!

I second this.

Anything where both people get each other off counts to me--and often when they don't, actually. Anything that has the potential.
