The meaning of making love
There is a difference between having sex and making love, that's no big secret right? If you are not aware of the differences then, maybe, you haven't experienced it for yourself or you're just not sure. They're very different acts. Sex is instinctive, biomechanical, everybody knows how to do it. Love making could be considered (and should) an art; it's not goal oriented, it's slow, sensual and most important you have to have a connection with your partner. It involves emotions and romance.
So, what does it mean to make love? The act of lovemaking has a different motivation than just having sex. The primary motivation for making love is to connect at an emotional level with your partner. It's a complex expression of love. It's not just about satisfying or exploring the body. Love making gives sex depth, it encourages both partners to use minds, souls, and body to get to each other's heart.
Lovemaking allows couples a different kind of communication (dirty talking still happens), it gives them the ability to be more open with each other, it involves loving words that come from the heart. Also, vulnerability during and after making love is at the highest point. Making love means that both you and your partner are fully present that whole time, there's no room for wandering.
Love making begins much before intercourse and ends much after. It's not just about taking your clothes off and romping on the sheets, it involves emotions and feelings.
