For the large majority of respondents, therefore, penetration need not occur for sex to happen. While many respondents simply stated that some sort of genital contact is required for sex, others mentioned specific acts. ’ The order implicit in these responses is relatively precise and reflects a view of sex as a staged process: kissing, then groping, then wanking, then sucking, culminating in anal intercourse. However, it is far from clear at what point ‘sex’ is deemed to have begun. ’ These responses are examples of the view that ‘real’ and ‘full’ sex are the same thing as anal (or vaginal) intercourse and anything short of these is not to be considered ‘proper’ sex.
