INTERCOURSE, PENNSYLVANIA

Intercourse is an unincorporated village in Leacock Township, Lancaster County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It is ten miles east of Lancaster along PA 340.

As with the nearby towns of Blue Ball and Paradise, Pennsylvania, Intercourse is a popular site for tourists on account of its location in "Amish country". Its name has acquired sexual connotations unrelated to the reasons the village was named. Sign posts for the town are frequently targeted by thieves.

The village got its name from the fact that two major roads joined there.
