Sex and Lovemaking:
What Is Sex, What Is Lovemaking and What's the Difference?

The End of the Discussion

Sometimes people get into heated discussions about the difference between sex and lovemaking. The way I see it, making love often includes sex, whereas sex doesn't necessarily include making love.

I find it useful to go with the dictionary's definition of sex as a physical activity, i.e. sexual intercourse or some other physical activity directly aimed at satisfying the sexual need.

Making love, on the other hand, is much more than that - just like the words say: lovemaking is the creation or expression of love.

11 Sexual and/or Lovemaking Activities


Let's look at 11 specific activities to define the differences between sex and lovemaking more closely:

(1) Looking lovingly or with sexual innuendo at each other - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(2) Saying loving or sexually arousing things to each other - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(3) Sharing an energetic link or connection and exchanging energy - without physically touching and with or without the energy being sexually arousing - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(4) Sharing an energetic link or connection and exchanging sexually arousing energy while physically touching other body parts than the sexual organs - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(5) Hugging each other - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(6) Kissing each other - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(7) Petting each other on the outside of your clothes, but not touching the sexual organs - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(8) Touching each other on the outside of your clothes, and touching the sexual organs, but NOT with the purpose of sexual satisfaction - is it ...
... sex? No.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(9) Being naked and touching or petting each other's sexual organs with the purpose of sexual satisfaction - is it ...
... sex? Yes.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(10) Kissing and licking each other's sexual organs with the purpose of sexual satisfaction - is it ...
... sex? Yes.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

(11) Having sexual intercourse (latin: coitus) - is it ...
... sex? Yes.
... lovemaking? Yes, it can be.

As it is pretty obvious from this, making love can be just about anything and can satisfy many different kinds of need while sex is a physical activity designed to stimulate and satisfy the needs of the sexual organs.

This is one way to end the discussion of the differences between sex and lovemaking. It isn't, of course, the only way to do so, but this way to define the differences between sex and lovemaking, is in fact a useful one.
