I personally hate it when sex is referred to in terms of penis-in-vagina intercourse, since that isn't possible in my relationship at this time. So, I'll continue with that cleared up.
Great sex to me is when I feel a connection to the person I'm with, feel plenty of intimacy, and when we both feel fulfilled and sexually satisfied, by whatever means obtained.

I think what Miss Lauren said holds true for quite a lot of people, but as for me, a bit more specifically, 'great sex' for my girlfriend and I is a period of total intimate focus on each other, whether it's snuggling, playful stimulation or more cardiovascular activities, or (my favorite) a nice combination of all three.
Amen to Miss L. on the fact that the word 'sex' ought to refer to a lot more than vaginal intercourse. It is possible in my relationship at this time, but there's so many other things we can and do do that are so wonderful... in our relationship we hardly ever use sex to mean peni-vagina penetration.
My girlfriend and I actually got so fed up with having to term our physical relations 'fooling around' when they clearly were so much more significant than that phrase implies, that we made up a new word: phlove (sort of short for physical loving).
But yeah, for us, great sex is what we call the combination of activities that results in us lying in bed both unable to move from emotional and physical exhaustion, and unwilling to move because we don't want to let go of the undescribable bliss of that moment.
