Word Origin

Over time, the understanding of sex and its words has changed. The word "sex" comes from Latin and is rooted in the Latin word "sexus," which means being male or female.

Around 1200, in Old French, the word mainly referred to private body parts. In the middle of the 19th century, people began using the word "sex" to talk about having intercourse. It became more popular to use it for that meaning during the early 20th century. The earliest recorded instance of "sex" being used to mean specifically coitus was in 1929.
