    A Load Off Vs A Connection...

    You have sex as a way to release pressure during a build up. You make love when you are wanting to actually connect to the person you love

    Sex Is Important In Love

    I think good sex can make a person happier and nicer .. As well as maintain the relations between lovers to be always closed to each other ... I'm not crazy about sex yet I agree that it's important for one's life .. Since it's a part of our humanities .. To make human becomes...

    The Dichotomy -OR- A ≠ B

    "I'm so tired of hearing such vulgar terms used to describe the beautiful act of love making." Anyone else ever hear someone say this, and then wonder if they've ever actually experienced an ******? Making love can be a beautiful thing, but it's not the same thing as having sex...

    Yes There Is A Difference

    Many often confuse the difference between sex and making love. Some often compare the two as being the same thing. Most people do not realize that there is a difference between these two. Let's start with sex. To me sex is something that doesn't often involve real feelings or...

    Because They Are.

    it's what i think anyway :) sex is like the physical, doing it with someone 'cos ur attracted to them but making love is a lot deeper than that. it's when u have a real connection to them and they do to u as well.

    Yes

    IN THEORY-I do think sex and 'making love' are 2 different things. Some times, mostly in my past when I was young and horny, now I'm old and horny, I would love to screw, have sex with anyone and often. Now that I am older I like making love. It can be like a symphony, where one...

    Totally

    I happen to think sex is simple for the act and not the emotion I would feel making love requires Sure they both involve the same physical act but there is an element in making love that doesn't have to be present in sex.

    Totally Different

    Sex to me is a man and a woman *******, getting hot and sweaty and dirty. Making love is two people sharing their fantasies. Each catering to the other's needs, and enjoying each others company, having intercourse and making magic.

    Like Night And Day

    Love making is a very intense emotional and physical bonding between two souls coming together as one. Sex is the more primal animalistic need of sexual release for the sake of satisfying our aroused sexual organs. The objective is not to bond emotionally as the act, but for...

    Synergetic Effect

    Yes, sex and making love are different things! Sex is a physical act, a union of two or more bodies that aren't usually joined.  Making love is an emotional act that bonds two or more hearts into one.  These are both very different acts, yes! However, if you put these two...

    Exposing Your Body Is Not The Same As Exposing Your Soul.

    It's easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time, but opening your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future hopes and dreams... that's being naked. I read this on a poster one of my friends had. I hold this to be very true...

    Making love is something you

    and your spouse do and share with each other. Sex is something you can share with each other too but is also fun when you include others.

    Sex is like enjoying a snow cone on a hot

    summer day - helpful for when you're parched. Making love is like sharing a banana split. The cherry... the whipped cream... DECADENCE, for when you're starving and need something substantial.

    Here is my perspective.

    What is yours? Sex and making love are different in that they can be separated. Sex feels good. Whether it is with a life partner, one or more non-romantic friend(s), or someone that you have just met. Sex is biological. Sex can be sensual or not. And most people I know...

    Dinner And Junk Food

    For me, it's like the difference between a formal dinner and junk food. Junk food (sex) tastes good, its "pleasure", so to speak, is only for as long as it lasts. It addresses the senses, and that's it. Dinner (making love) involves a sense of participation, and it is "edifying...

    Loveless Sex Is So Much Less Gratifying

    In high school, my girlfriend and I waited until we were in love until we made love for the first time. This set the precedent for my understanding of sex: that the two people should love each other. From that point on I was a lover of women. I had sex with only a few women...

    Maybe the physical act is the same

    for both. But the big difference you feel it inside. Sex is like working out, pure excercise. Making love is turning that exercise into emotions and meaning.

    The Difference...

    Having sex is with the aim of having an ******. Making love is about taking your time to worship the other persons body. To love them, to let them know they are loved, so that you can share an experience together. It's about reaching the ultimate together.

    Sex is essentially animal,

    almost instinctive even with mankind but making love is about mutuality.Lots of guys just want sex. They don't think past their desires for brief satisfaction, gratiation.Love making is an art which can be very selfless.
