Sex is getting exercise. Making love is sharing your body and soul .

The difference is the emotional attachment you have to the person you're having intercourse with. If you and he have a deep, abiding love (not just lust) for one another, the intercourse is one way in which you bond with each other.

Without the emotional attachment, it is just sex.

Wow, that is a loaded question...with an end result...


For many it is the physical or emotional attachment...but in reality,

the connection or chemistry as many label it always seems to be the end result, it is sex.

Don't you think it is how that person or persons are feeling when they engage upon shared enjoyments of sexual endeavors? Sometimes, you care deeply for a person but you just have random sexual pleasures..other times you take it slow and share intimate moments. Even in not caring for them aren't you still sharing a need to partake in pleasing each other? The sharing of bodies meeting is always about pleasure, if you dont get yours while engaging in this act is it the other persons fault? No, I dont think so...You agreed when you stripped each other..no matter how quickly, slowly or not at all that it was about a 'shared enjoyment'....but back to the question...the difference is in how you share it or view it. sharing of bodies in considered sex...emotions can play a factor in it but how often does it? And are you both sharing on the same page while engaging in it? If your in a relationship of 5 years(persay...your milage may differ)...you have moments of having 'sex' and 'making love'. It makes your relationship wholesome and complete

If with a stranger, it is just sexual sharing...and it appears internet dating is just that..a quick fix to resolve a need for 'sex'.... just saying....

Having sex is just going through the act ... a man getting himself off with the aid of a vagina ... or even just a woman's hand.

Making Love is physical as well as mind and heart and soul.

Sex is sex.

Making love can be done with just a look into each others eyes. No contact is even needed. You haven't made love until you experienced this. You know what the person is thinking and you are drinking each other in. It can progress into touch but the true act of making love doesn't have to. And its amazing.

The answer is kind of a no brainer; sex is the act of foreplay and/or intercourse itself while making love involves the emotion of love. Therefore one is physical while the other is emotional.

There is a grey area to this of course which is that two people in love can have just sex. Two people who aren't in love can perform the "act" of making love.
This grey area can cause a lot of problems if it isn't clear to the persons involved.

Sex is when she is screaming out God's name and not yours.
Love is when she taps you on your arse and say " you'r in love.

Since romantic love is fleeing and temporary and modern society believes it so fun to have multiple sex partners than there is no making love because love is supposed to last a lifetime not until the next sex partner(s) comes along.

Anything involving costumes or cucumbers isn't lovemaking

Making love is the guy buying a woman flowers and expensive candy before having sex.

Making love is from the word lovemaking, which is a direct translation of the word courtship. Technically "making love" has nothing to do with sex itself, but within around the last 100 years that changed, probably with the invention of movies and censorship.

Making love is session three of a night of having sex at least 4 times. Session 4 is the intense one that ends with two sweaty bodies gasping for air and a grin the size of Texas.

There is no difference. They both mean the same thing, but the terminology is used for different scenarios. Explaining sex to your children might involve the "making love" term, it even might involve the "birds and bees" scenario. It's still the same thing.

Between two lovers, and behind closed doors it might include "Daddy, I've been a bad girl and need to be spanked." Same thing.

As an authority figure (parent), or talking to an authority figure (clergy, judge), you'd explain sex in a way that didn't describe it as "we were knocking knees and getting off."

Talking to the judge:

Judge: So tell me Mrs Smith, how did your husband fall from the 7th story balcony.
Mrs Smith: Well judge, after making love he got up too soon, a little disoriented, and my husband fell on his own.
Judge: So you and and your husband were doing the nasty?
Mrs Smith: No, me and Fabio were.
Judge: I see. Very loving of you. Case dismissed.

Drapes?
I thought it was the chandelier???
"Mrs. Smith" was making love with Fabio?
5 yrs for extremely poor taste in the 1st degree.
OT. Ideally, both having sex and making love are involved in the same event. But it's not a law or statute.

I suspect that "sexantics" is where drapes and chandeliers come into play.

Awwww, aren't romantics wonderful. Tying feelings into a sexual act.

Having sex does not equal not making love.
Making love does not equal not having sex.
Having sex equals making love. (same)

As previously stated, if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. Of course sex is better if you have feelings for the one you're boinkin', err, excuse me, making love to.
