It studies the formation of sex as a discourse and it consequences. It analyses the sex as an art and as science. In total agreement with Foucault, the article establishes how the classical Greek and Indian society considered sex as art and how it is transformed everywhere, especially in the West with the advent of Modernist on the scene. The study is based on comparative approach.
