Love and lust are related as they both release chemicals within our bodies that causes desire for intimacy with the object of one’s affection and thusly prepare us for intercourse. Though one can be had without the other, both lead to the same result; a meeting of the bodies. Lust is a more physical manifestation of desire where love involves commitment of the heart and mind. Both can be felt for a person, object or status such as being the center of attention. Smile!
