Is the sexual meaning for 'coger' used in any other country than Mexico?

Hundetier

It is also used like that in Argentinia.

Dan-H24

Costa Rica also. When I was studying there recently another student used "coger" in the non-sexual "to take" sense, and our maestras got big eyes and said he should not use that word in CR.

Also, a peruana with whom I used to talk said that it has sexual overtones in Peru as well.

Sounds like a word to avoid in general. Agarrar is safer.
