Are You Making Love or Just Having Sex?
Published April 13th, 2021
People see relationships differently. Some people believe in being with one person only for the rest of their life while others like to explore and get into relationships with others. Regardless of which, we all have a different understanding of what having sex means. Some see it as a hobby or just something they enjoy doing, while others may be more serious about who they sleep with and even “save” themselves until they get married.
We are all in charge of our bodies. No one else can tell us what to do to our bodies except ourselves, so it is vital that we teach teens, especially those going through puberty, what it means to make love and just have sex. To help more people understand the difference between making love and just having sex, let us discuss briefly what each means.
What does it mean when you make love with someone? This form of sexual intercourse occurs when two individuals share high levels of emotions for each other, so high that words alone are not enough to express their feelings, so they decide to do so through sexual intercourse. Most of the time, making love happens during honeymoons between newlywed couples. Regardless of how many times you have had sex before, making love with someone can happen any time.
You may be a virgin up until marriage and make love with your husband for the first time, or you may have had numerous sexual intercourse in the past but suddenly find someone you care deeply about to make love to. Making love occurs between two individuals who share a unique bond and closeness.
Some people do not experience this act of love until after having sex with several people, and it is entirely understandable. You cannot expect that every individual will instantly find the love of their life and experience love-making with them during the first try. Forming a serious relationship with someone takes time, so do not be discouraged about having sexual intercourse with someone and not sharing passion and deep emotions.
Having sex is often thought of as the same as making love, but it is vastly different. Having sex is merely the act of doing sexual intercourse, often without genuine emotions. While having sex can still consist of vulnerability, the exchange of emotions is not as deep as when you make love with someone you love.
With the act of just having sex, you do not have to worry about attachments and commitment as individuals who just have sex can move on quickly from it. Having sex is more of a way to gain pleasure and thrill, unlike lovemaking that expresses the love two people have for one another. Having sex is not a bad thing, despite what some people believe.
Anyone can have sex, as long as you are of the right age and have all the consent from your partner that you need. Take note that no one can make you do something that you are not comfortable doing. The same goes for sex. You should not force another person to have sex with, especially if they did not consent to do so. If you do, that will fall under sexual harassment or rape, but that’s a different story.
Making love and having sex are two very different things, but that does not mean that one is better than the other. Conservative people may shame those who have sex for fun, but that should not make you feel like you are doing something wrong. People enjoy sex differently as we have different beliefs and needs. The main difference between the two acts of sexual intercourse is the level of vulnerability and the amount of emotions held by the people who do it.
