In your opinion what's the difference between having sex and making love?

    • Thread Starter

    My boyfriend said he can't wait to make love to me. My first thoughts were '' is he in love with me? ''. So I got him to explain what love making was to him and he said it was just more sensual than ordinary sex. What are your thoughts?

    It is like ****ing because you really want to explore and express your feelings for them rather than ****ing someone because you're horny and you find them attractive.

    Making love sounds more passionate.
    Having sex just sounds like you stuck it in for the hell of it.

    The term 'making love' tends to be reserved for people the person really cares about, or some people just use it interchangeably with 'having sex/f***ing'.

    'Make Love' is for people in a long term relationship... Everyone else just has sex!

    Don't think it's anything to do with length of relationship. It's about affection as well as lust.

    Making love is like, putting the slow grooves on, lighting candles, going slow, all that s***. Sex is like, just f***ing and all the rest of it, which is more fun and the making love is reserved for someone you're in a relationship with and on occasion.

    making sure she cums too
    stopping if she says ow

    I've never really thought about there being a distinction.

    But I'm totally disinterested in one night stands so that might be somehow relevant

    They're synonymous; "making love" just sounds better in polite company than " a hard shag" (unless you're complaining about the texture of your rug, of course).
