Spot the difference

  /   in Entertainment, News, Relationships   /   Comments

Incest-cartoon

Sex and love being interwoven. Even the Webster’s Dictionary describes lovemaking as the act of courting or sexual activity, and love as a profound tender passionate affection for another person. When you love, you want to protect, nurture and make happy and it is in that context that I see lovemaking. Rape and all these other synonyms can therefore not be described as lovemaking. Sex is different from lovemaking. You can have sex without loving, or being in love with your sexual partner. I have had varied responses from people on this issue and would really love to hear from my readers as well.

“My first taste of meaningful sex came when one of my suppliers started teasing me with saucy innuendos. I was thrilled. He was married, tall, dark and handsome with mischievous eyes. That suited me to the ground. I had my four children and money; I wasn’t on the look-out for another husband. The day we finally got together was like a magic. Like the magazines advised, I’d worn sexy underwear and spiced up my bedroom. We were nicely tipsy when we tumbled into bed. It was the first time I reached an orgasm. At last I understood that sex could be mind-blowing. And I wanted more.
