Freebase

  1. Intercourse

    Intercourse is a radical feminist analysis of sexual intercourse in literature and society, written by Andrea Dworkin. Intercourse is often said to argue that "all heterosexual sex is rape", based on the line from the book that says "violation is a synonym for intercourse." However, Dworkin has denied this interpretation, stating, "What I think is that sex must not put women in a subordinate position. It must be reciprocal and not an act of aggression from a man looking only to satisfy himself. That's my point."

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Intercourse

    in′tėr-kōrs, n. connection by dealings: communication: commerce: communion: coition. [O. Fr. entrecours—L. intercursus, a running between—inter, between, currĕre, cursum, to run.]
