Offering a bribe is an inducement to the party offered to accept it. If the party refused, then you are in a helluva more trouble than you were before. Try to remember why you offered the bribe in the first place. Is it to get the NASA contract when you do not even look at the moon? Is it to send your son into Harvard when he is not even a Wikipedian? Or is it to allow the cop to have a drink instead of writing you a ticket? Want to get into Congress without really campaigning? Or you are simply corrupted? Well, then welcome to the club. You are not the only one in fact you will be the odd one out if you do not use bribes.

Bribing means you offer something to rob someone else of a chance from getting it. For example, you do not want your neighbours' kids to enter Harvard so you bribe the Dean to strike their names out. You have to leave a tip to make him wear his glasses so he does not accidentally strike out your son's name which you already paid a bigger bribe for earlier.
Your son may in turn bribe the Dean with a higher amount to make sure he is recommended to Baywatch Life Guard School instead. Thus you must understand that bribing is not a static affair. It is more like gambling, only worse as it is not allowed in the casino.
Getting sex by paying someone is not a bribe. It is called prostitution. Paying a much higher price is also not it. It means you are in Tokyo. Paying for a bride is also not it. That is done by a mail-order-bride syndicate. Bribing girls for sex is thus unnecessary unless you are a jerk and she is desperate for cash. But then that is prostitution which is legal depending on what currency you are using.
If you caught your swimming coach trying to touch you in places that is giving you pleasure instead of pain, then you may request for a bribe. If he refused then tell him its an extortion not amounting to blackmail. If he still refuse to admit it, then tell him its his turn to pay back for the last date that you had with him but he forgot his wallet.
If you are still confused, call on your local congressman, school principal or local police chief for more precise definitions. Wikipedia is the last place to look because they live on donations and free beer.
edit Bribery and Sex
Since your mind is dirty, you might ask, "Has bribes got anything to do with sex?". The answer is "If you happen to be offering sex as a form of bribe". Sex, like money, a door gift, loyalty cards, smiling cab-drivers or a faster than usual courier service is another form or medium that a bribe may take. Devout and religious individuals may not be tempted by money or politics nor sex, but then 'offered sex with a surprise gift' may arouse their curiosity that might just the straw that breaks the camel's back. Therefore if your target does not accept your offers, think laterally. You will think of something.

Bribery probably, just probably started when the dinosaurs wanted a good planet to step on. They paid to some angels to forgo quality assurance and checks for leaking that would cost them higher.
During the Exodus, those who were waiting for Moses bribed Aaron to allow them to make their Golden Calf so that they got richer for the front seats to the view. While in front of the Pilate, Jesus could not counter the huge bribe given by the plaintiffs to the judge and he was sentenced 3 crucifixions for the price of one. The Saudi regime in recent times used oil instead to get Lawrence of Arabia to send tanks and beauty models.
There are attempts to cloud organised bribes with terms and difficult to grasp covers such as Act of Congress, CNN, The Apprentice. You have weapons of mass destructions in your country, the United Nations, and Uncyclopedia.

The European Union was formed very quickly due to the lubricating effect of bribes paid in Pound Sterlings, German Marks, French Francs, Old Guilders and Pirate skulls. In return they received useless Euros.
