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. As seen on Teen Health Source , sex or sexual intercourse means different things to different individuals, but one thing is for sure, this is a healthy and natural activity enjoyed by most people who find it meaningful in their own unique way. As noted by Isadora Alman from Psychology Today , one may decide to engage in this act for different purposes, for example, lust, intimacy, boredom, relief, to exert power, to fulfill expectations, baby making, to express love, take comfort, etc.
