sex position

Back from the SOP campaign to report another suspect. This one appears to be any position for sex (don't bring up the "2 or more people" clause, because sexual intercourse covers that ground, and is in the requisite definition of sex). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:46, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Keep. Set phrase. This is pretty much used exclusively to mean physical arrangement of partners during sex. "Position" can also mean "job" or "opinion," but people generally don't say a porn star has a "sex position," or that the view that couples should practice abstinence until marriage is a "sex position" (unless it's a deliberate pun).

Keep per Astral. Good arguments.--Dmol (talk) 03:59, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
Really marginal, I'd say very weak keep. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:26, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
Translations are not necessarily straightforward. At least in Finnish (yhdyntäasento), Danish (samlejestilling), Norwegian (samleiestilling) and Swedish (samlagsställning) the corresponding terms would translate literally to "intercourse position". The German term is Sexualpraktik. --Hekaheka (talk) 22:00, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
If we're going to keep sex position, could you please add those translations? I don't know the gender for them. Thanks --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:32, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
All right.--Hekaheka (talk) 10:23, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
Keep. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 06:41, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

There might be a stronger case against the French position sexuelle, but position in unclear. Does this merit an RFD? --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:47, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Kept. For the French position sexuelle, make a new request for deletion if you want (the French Wiktionary has an entry though). — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 00:01, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
