Can someone help me explain two sentences:
- The ancient Chinese Taoists distinguished between intercourse and orgasm.
- The ancient Chinese Taoists distinguished intercourse from orgasm.
I found that distinguish st from st and distinguish between st and st. So what is correct one ?

Hi.. Though a newbie to post, I'd give my opinion to this 8-)

In the above lines, the context is the same.. But only for the above statement.

We differentiate 'between' where 2 subjects are treated as

We differentiate x from y when Y is considered as major and X is minor..

The correct idiomatic usage is distinguished between x and y
the second sentence is idiomatically wrong
