Here are the top three answers to all of the ~*sexy*~ questions.

1.

How people define sex varied a lot. At 35%, oral and any kind of penetration were the most accepted as what qualifies as sexytime. Jerry Seinfeld's declaration about it being sex if a nipple is out, however, garnered a measly 3%. Sorry, Jerry. 😕

Turns out most words for "sex" gross you out, including "coitus," "lovemaking," "copulation," "nookie," and "fornication" (though "coitus" won out by a small margin).* Somehow a quarter of respondents have skin that doesn't crawl when they hear them, which, kudos.*Editor's note: As one reader pointed out, "porking" should have been included in the options. We are very sorry for this egregious omission.
