Often times, a lot of people, regardless of whether they are a man or a woman, cannot distinguish between two rather different acts, that is, love making and having sex. As seen on Thought Catalog , sex is an instinctive and bio-mechanical act and everyone can do it. On the other hand, making love is considered to be a sensual, slow, and not goal-oriented act that gives us the opportunity to experience the metaphysical being of oneness and it is considered to be an art in itself. Hence, a fulfilling sex life and a successful romantic relationship should contain little of both.

The need to satisfy the urge for sex and to feel the gratification that comes from humping is not on the same level as love-making. Chimps, rabbits, bulls, Zebras
Have you ever had sex with someone you really, really loved and had an out-of-body, mind-boggling experience? Or afterward and during felt so close to that person you thought you were speaking to their SOUL? Have you ever had such incredible sex that you momentarily think you might actually melt into the bedspread and ooze into the floor cracks? I'm a girl who's had plenty of casual lays -- but it wasn't until my current boyfriend that I experienced love sex in all its glory. I even cried, but in a good way. It was the happy, empowered cry only love sex can provide -- what your mom probably refers to as "making love. It's when you connect with someone on a spiritual level, when the sex is so full of meaning and emotion. This is very different than casual sex. Casual sex is fantastic, but love sex only really happens when you're in a relationship with someone you actually love. Orgasms release a slew of neurochemicals into the body that make us feel calm, happy, and procure a sense of intimacy with the person we just slept with.
