Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Sex"

The meaning of "Sex" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does have you ever been paid for sex? mean?
A: Yes, the passive is caused by the past tense form but also by the word 'been.'
The passive is a combination of:
1. a form of 'be' that is appropriate for the sentence structure. (tense, agreement, etc.)
2. the past participle of another verb (usually the same as the past tense form, like "paid" here.)

But the 'have you ever' structure also requires a verb in past participle form, because it is a special case of the perfect form, which uses "have." So we have active voice:
"Have you ever paid money for sex?" - "paid" is past participle because of "have." This is about paying money.
Vs. passive voice:
"Have you ever been paid money for sex?" - "been" is past participle because of "have." "paid" is past participle because of "been." This is about getting money.

As you can see, the form of each verb depends on the previous verb in the verb phrase. I hope that makes sense.
Q: What does alleged sex trafficker mean?

Synonyms of "Sex" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between sex appeal and sexy ?
A: @Xillkixx

A good question

They mean the same thing; but,

"Sex Appeal" has the effect of distancing, or de-personalising the sexiness.

Since sexiness is a very personal, and potentially threatening thing, it's helpful to have terms you can use to discuss it that are non-threatening.

So, while one person, or a few friends, could agree that a pop star is "sexy"

A large group of people who don't know each other could agree that the pop star has Sex Appeal.
Q: What is the difference between sex and gender ?
A: Sex is biological and one is born with it. There are two sexes (male and female) or intersex (rare cases). Gender is what one identifies themselves as sociologically and internally, and in society. The majority of people’s gender is in alignment with their biological sex, but many people also differ in these two aspects of their identity.

Q: What is the difference between sex and gender ?
A: They are the same. But sex has many more different uses aside from just meaning just gender.
