Expression talk:have sex

Does "have sex" really say anything about a purpose? IMHO it just describes an activity. --Tosca 17:43, 12 August 2006 (CEST)

Yes, it does. I agree. However, WiktionaryZ:score doesn't and it's a synonym of "have sex". Plus, if you look at the French, the translations are different there too. —Celestianpower Háblame 17:46, 12 August 2006 (CEST)
Should we then have a third DM which says nothing about a purpose? I think many expressions are not identical meanings of either DM1 and DM1, so another is needed. --Tosca 18:01, 12 August 2006 (CEST)
I think so. French translations are somewhat different, yes, but none for which I would flag with identical meaning. Having a broader DM would help. Ce`dric 18:20, 12 August 2006 (CEST)

This article (have sex) needs attention because:
IMO this Expression needs to be cleaned up. Firstly, it's questionable if "have sex" really has three different meanings. If it has, than we have to add some more, like "having intercourse with the purpose of spiritual unification", "giving sexual pleasure to one self." etc. But even if we agree on these three definitions, the translations seem to be quite messed up in the different languages.

Right now I would tend to simply delete two definitons and only leave something like: sexual activity.

On the other hand I can see that there are different nuances or meanings that express a different quality of the activity. For example, the english "to score" seems to come more from a male chauvinistic point of view and is related to the sports defintion of "to score". Similar meanings/nuances exist in German as well and I am sure also in other languages.

However, this topic needs to be discussed! --Dh 19:58, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.
