Making love or sex?

Written by SHFPACT. Posted in About Sex

Is 'making love' the same as having sex or is it entirely different?

'Making love' and having sex both refer to sex. Some people use the phrase 'make love' because they see it as a softer, more indirect and perhaps more romantic way of saying 'have sex'. Other people don't like the phrase. For some people, 'making love' means sex that is taken more slowly, involves more emotion or feeling, or involves more mutual pleasure.
