Could Some Define the New Meaning of the Word "Sex," Please

        In the San Francisco Chronicle, a columnist named Mark Morford had an article about the Duggar family of Arkansas.  Mr. Morford is worried that the Duggar children will be
        tragically encoded with the values of the homophobic asexual Christian right

        Funny, I thought "sex" was the word for the act that is the CAUSE of children.  And Mr. and Mrs. Duggar sure seem to have been acting up a storm — the Mrs. just gave birth to her sixteenth child.

        So could someone please tell me what word to use to refer to the act that causes pregnancy?  And what act it is that the word "sex" now refers to?  Because either I am a bit confused, or Mr. Morford is.
