    Love makes you happy and gives a real charm in life. Being in love you are always on the positive side of life, However, sex is a demand of body like food when you are hungry  your physical requirement pulls you towards sex. Its like a great pleasure in having sex that surpasses all other pleasures for a temporary phase. But after having sex  when  there is no appetite for sex,you do not think about it. Thus it. can not be combined with love  as love is long lasting  and gives a sweet fragrance in life which no one can ignore.

    Yes and No. The primary difference is the mental state of the people involved. If however an outsider saw still photos or observed a video clip they would not know the difference between sex and making love. Also one must bear in mind there is no "one way" to make love. One couple's kinky act is a standard session for another couple.
    There is an old Eddie Murphy joke where he talks about a guy whose wife catches him with another woman. The man says: "Ok, I had sex with her! But I make love to you!"

    Yes, making love means you making love to someone who you love very much and just having sex could be for fun known as casual sex or cause you just think you need it.

    Absolutely, I've done both, and much prefer making love. To me, making love has a strong emotional and spiritual component. It strengthens the love between 2 people. There is more involvment and it is more than just a primal urge. It is sharing everything with another person. Having sex is merely the primal human urge to procreate.

    a huge difference. having sex is about just having fun with no commitment or feelings and it's a blast. making love is something you do with your mind, your heart and your body with someone you care about deeply.

    Yes, of course. Anyone can have sex. There has to be a connection in making love because love must exist between the two individuals.

    Yes, I say there is. Making love involves not just the physical act of sex, but an almost telepathic connection as well. It's about physical passion on top of carnal pleasure.

    Making love is emotional as well as physical, having sex is all physical.

    A big and a huge difference .
    Sex is a part of love . Making love describes as a whole , how much you have the feelings towards your partner .
