Jim Mim 'Ain

We were discussing surah adiyat (me and my children) sometime ago. And we reached the 5th verse.
 فَوَسَطۡنَ بِهِۦ جَمۡعًا  Penetrating forthwith as one into the midst (of the foe)By the way it was a great discussion and I learned alot  of general knowledge concerning Arabian horses doing this surah. You  can read part of it here
So we got to ayat 5 and I pointed out the word جَمۡعًا and I briefly mention the word comes from the three root letter which is جمع. Which in general means group or join or unite. And as most arabic words, they are derived from a three  root letter.  And they can then means similar but different. So from the letters jim mim 'ain, you can get the word 
jumuah (Malay) pronounce is Jumaat. جمعة 
Jamaah - as in solat jamaah  جمعة
Jamek - as in Masjid jamek. جامع
Majmuk - مجمع
Ijtima' (meeting or gathering) - اجتماع
Can you see, the changed word still have the root letter jim mim 'ain?
Then, suddenly Sya asked me, what would jima' mean? It is spelt like this جماع

It means having sex Sya.

Then Haziq roared and Sya went red on the face..and Jack laughed even though he did not fully understand what was happening.
The other day, I was casually talking to haziq about how some music videos are like porno especially the arabic ones particularly if they singers from Lban0n. 

Then Sya asked, is porno like jima'?
