Intercourse, Alabama, is an unincorporated community located at a crossroads in Sumter County, Alabama, USA.[1] It is named for the traffic intersection of the town's crossroads (called "intercourse" at that time) at the site of the general store. Intercourse has been noted on lists of unusual place names.[2][3] A post office called Intercourse was established in 1840, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1913.[4]
