Christina Paper Part One The definition I want to explore from Christina’s repertoire of sexual definitions is penetration. According to Christina, she counts penetration as a definition of sex. Drawing from her highly interactive session with Gene, it was stated that no actual penetration had ever occurred during the whole time they were engaging in aggressive physical interaction. She states that “He never got inside, so it didn’t count”, thus she concludes that the whole experience was not classified as an act of sex, even though a plethora of sexual actions took place during their time together. By this definition, Christina affirms sex is an act of penetration, however, Christina fails to address what penetration encompassed. Christina does not elaborate on what “got inside” defined, so did she imply penile to vaginal penetration? Or did it also include oral and anal penetration of the body. This definition is very problematic as it encompasses too many areas that were failed to be addressed by Christina. Say for example that Female A engaged in sexual activities such as fondling, kissing, and masturbation with Male B, however, none of these actions involved penetration. Then per Christina’s definition of sex, Female A and Male B’s encounter does not count as sex. But do sexual actions performed upon another individual count as sex even though no penetration happened?
