did u ever have sex?

I'm not quite sure how to respond. You're missing a qualifier to that question unless you're assuming my life is over and I'm standing at the gates of heaven or hell?

For instance, if you are to add a time qualifier like, "...last year", "...when you were young" the question would make sense and I could say, "Yes."

You could also add a locale qualifier like " a truck" or " the desert under a blistering sun" or "...on your balcony in Saint Paul" or " a corn field" or "...on the moon." I would have to say "Yes" to all of them except the last.

So, you see qualifiers, often found in prepositional phrases, can be our friends.
