In other words, the original Greek word doesn't specify sex between unmarried people. There IS no word in the bible that means that.

Evidently the Greek word in question (pornea, or a variant thereof) can mean all those things depending on context and usage. I consulted the Oracle of Fundy Coworker. Alas he sent me a PDF with a word analysis of that term, so I can't really post it here.

I will press him a bit for more detail (specifically the Galatians passage), though he also mentioned Corinthians to me (which I haven't checked yet).
