Philosophy of Sex

The philosophy of sex is philosophy which embarks on questions regarding the cognitive requirements and conceptual space of sex as notion, to remark upon the nature and normative implications of sex, as well as the implications of questions regarding other objects of inquiry on sex. Given more specificity, the philosophy of sex concerns whether there are good or bad sexual acts and, if so, what are they and by what criteria does one judge them so; concerns what the relationship is between sex and biological reproduction in a normative as well as existential sense; concerns the purpose or function of sex; concerns the scope of what can be included under sex or regarded sexually; and concerns where sexuality conceptually sits between gender and biological sex.
