This is probably a stupid question. But i’ve been thinking about it alot lately. What is the difference between sex and love?
Everyone has their own opinions and i’d like to see what other people think, it’s always good to be open minded.

P.S. I’m not sure what category this would be considered haha

Love is when you’re more excited about love. Sex is when you’re not strong enough to love.

sex is the pursuit of the orgasm; love is appreciating and fully enjoying the perpetual moment for all it`s worth, it is not just a physical experience but also psychological. It is like the difference between smoking a cigarette and meditating.

Sex is the act of loving, If there isn’t an established love there than you are kind of just loving each others presence. But little do either know that one, or both of them after this act will feel compelled to each other for however long they come in contact with them. After having sex with someone it’s like you both went on an adventure together where NO ONE else has ever went cause it was your guys experience. It’s up to either candidate to pursue this adventure again.
Love is different for everyone, but the core grasp of it is feeling like someone understands you and see’s you differently than another person. They have your back, and are passionate about being yours.
Ultimately sex is expressing your gratitude and you want to please the other, you wanna both feel good and be the reason they feel good. Love is however the people communicate, interact, stay in touch help each other, sometimes it doesn’t even need a title. It’s just there :) just like attraction is just sometimes there

@cristinelizabeth, That was somewhat beautiful. I can’t see sex as an adventure when it happens so easy though. And for me nothing easy is passionate enough. :)

@cristinelizabeth, Sex is an adventure only the people involved in the act can experience! That’s so great!

This sort of thought occupies my mind frequently as well. I think it is very important due to flawed understanding of sexuality (life in general) that has persisted for far too long; also, it is relevant to the transition we are experiencing as women reclaim their sexual power.

Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Sex and love are supposed to be inseparable. We have evolved down the social route and consequently, this is an innate attribute of our biology. Somewhere down the line, probably around the time of the dawn of agriculture, men became the more vital role in propagation of the species. This is totally ironic and hilarious however because women are the life givers.

Women became subservient to Men and from that point on it was a turn for the worst toward a paradigm with disproportionate value in the externality involved with sex: the physical attraction, the domination, the selfishness.. There is no room for love there – only reptilian behavior, this is what the man is without the female to balance him. He operates out of the lowest regions of the brain which were among the first evolutionary adaptions but have diminished utility now that we have adapted so far beyond and have invented society and such.
It is the trend amongst the majority that the archetypal female is suppressed in both men and women.
It is the trend in the hipster/hippie minority that oppositely, the female overbears the male.
Both suck.
If male were completely dominant life would be survival of the most violent, if female were completely dominant we would expand uselessly like cancer.

@beyond, It’s probably one of the most beautiful things in life. You haven’t had awesome sex then :) it’s the building up to the actual thing, the teasing, and then when it’s happening you just let go of all your worries and for those moments it’s like you both are just in awe of each other haha. Passion is something I think everyone has, channeling it into your interactions with others is key to finding something really worth while <3

@cristinelizabeth, this is love :

“Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Whatever colors you have in your mind
I’ll show them to you and you’ll see them shine

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you’re the best thing that he’s ever seen

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Why wait any longer for the world to begin
You can have your cake and eat it too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
When he’s standing in front of you

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead”

@cristinelizabeth, Nah, I know what awesome sex is. It’s still not that hard. Well, unless you’re in awe that not many people want to sleep with you. I agree about the passion. :)

@cristinelizabeth, that is love, the feeling of belonging and so much more!! What i`ve said is very limited because reality/direct experience is unspeakable but naturally you know love, the difficulty lies in “explaining” it haha. :)

@seeker, It is very hard to explain your own take on intimate emotions. See like I talk about it on here, but to actually say this to someone I would suck, cause I suck at saying how I feel about anything ha. & lmao what in the hell? hhaaha his face in the beginning . . .

What is the difference between sex and love?

That’s like asking, what’s the difference between a blonde and a brunette.

You can stereotype and generalize and try to come to a universal answer, but there’s definitely going to be lots of out-liars that lie way beyond the trend line.

An answer to this question is going to be found through your own experiences and your own introspection.

Everybody’s different, and some people are going to fall more into your brand of different than others :)

To quote the fine musician Bill Withers on this subject:

But oh baby baby baby baby when you love me I can’t get enough
I and I want to spread the news that if it feels this good getting used
Oh you just keep on using me until you use me up
Until you use me up

Talking about you using me but it all depends on what you do
It ain’t too bad the way you’re using me
‘Cause I sure am using you to do the things you do
Ah ha to do the things you do

@cristinelizabeth, :)) i know what you mean, true emotion feels somewhat ridiculous; but that is because we`ve been fed on the plastic lifestyle! I do not know about him but if i have truly tried to understand what is he about, because he seemed interesting and if i take in regard the whole suffering he`s been through, he is a wonderful human being, sincerely,

Sex is a moment. Love is knowing that you want to be in that moment forever.

Sex is something you do.

Love is something you feel.

Simple as that.

When you’re single you want someone to make love to and when you’re in love you wish there was someone to fuck ;)

Seriously though, what @manimal, said.

Why do people generally lump sex and love into the same category? I get that people who love each other have sex with only each other (in most situations anyway) and that its a sacred bond between the couple, but outside of humans I dont see anything in nature that points to love and sex being entwined.

My view on love is that it is not real. It has no inherent meaning. Love is something that is associative to whatever someone feels love should be.
