Did Monica have Sex with the President?

The issue which convulsed our nation last year was whether Monica Lewinsky had sex with President Clinton.

Both Monica and the President testified that they did not have sex with each other. Yet, several judges and many Republicans said that they did.

It finally came out that what had happened between them was that Monica gave the President five blowjobs. However, much to her disappointment, he never pushed his penis inside of her and he never ejaculated inside of her, although he did ejaculate semen on her dress.

Now, the question is: Was that Sex? Also, if it was sex, where do we draw the line?

Webster's Dictionary defines sex as:

1 : either of the two major forms of individuals that occur in many species and that are distinguished respectively as female or male

2 : the sum of the structural, functional, and behavioral characteristics of living things that are involved in reproduction by two interacting parents and that distinguish males and females

3 a : sexually motivated phenomena or behavior b : SEXUAL INTERCOURSE

Next, Webster's Dictionary defines sexual intercourse as:

1 : heterosexual intercourse involving penetration of the vagina by the penis : COITUS

2 : intercourse involving genital contact between individuals other than penetration of the vagina by the penis

This is inconclusive, as the second alternative definition may not be accepted by everybody. It was certainly not accepted by Monica and by the President. For example, if a doctor touches the penis or the vagina of his patient, did they have sex? Of course not, but if he penetrates her vagina with his penis, they certainly did, even though he may claim a medical or therapeutic reason for this.

This issue came up in another recent federal case in which a Brooklyn High School Teacher was arrested by the FBI on Federal Charges taking a 16-year-old girl to Atlantic City, New Jersey. He claimed that he had never had sex with the girl, but he later confessed that he had allowed her to give him a blow job. The federal judge read the riot act to him, telling him that a blowjob was sexual intercourse.

Do you agree? I do not. Under my definition, sexual intercourse occurs when the male penetrates with his penis into the vagina of the female, making reproduction possible. Stated differently, if no procreation was possible, then they did not have sex.

If he used a condom, did they have sex? Not everyone will agree on the answer to this.

However, under the judicially established "Lewinsky Rule", even a heavy French Kiss might be deemed "sexual intercourse". Where do we draw the line?

Therefore, I propose "Sam's Rule". Under "Sam's Rule", if he did not ejaculate inside of her, if no procreation was possible, then they did not have sex.
