Who Has Sexual Intercourse?

Webster’s New Riverside University Dictionary defines “sexual intercourse” as “n. Coitus, esp. between humans.”  When we flip to the front of the dictionary we find “Coitus” defined as “n. Physical union of male and female sexual organs.”  A dictionary is not a legal document, but it conveys a culture’s common understanding of what something is, and therefore isn’t.  Human culture has not seen homosexual erotic genital stimulation as sexual intercourse.  It is something else.
