Does Sex Equal Love?

I have always held onto a set of beliefs in my life that I stand by. One of those beliefs is that sex does not equal love. That I might be in a relationship with one person, but if an indiscretion happens - it really shouldn't be the end of the world. Lives shouldn't be shattered or rocked. I don't believe humans were made to be monogamous and with one person for the entirety of their life.

That being said, I know that not everyone agrees with my belief system. I know that I'm a little offside with a lot of my beliefs and my generally centrist ideologies. In this specific instance though, hear me out.

If I am in a relationship, I am in that relationship because I adore the majority of things about that person. They way they listen when I talk, the cuddles as we go to sleep, the willingness to engage, their laugh, the way they look at me, their abilities as a human. I am in that relationship, regardless of their flaws. Some may say in spite of, but I believe flaws are a huge part of what makes a human, human. So, regardless of the persons flaws - i'm in.

This doesn't mean that I wouldn't sit in a pub and think another human is good looking. It doesn't mean that I wouldn't think about their dick or how they would fuck. It doesn't mean that I don't continue to fantasize about people outside of my relationship with this one person. My person.

If I choose to have a one night stand, casual sex with a random or friend, or make the decision to mutually masturbate with that person - why is that a problem? I still make the choice to be with my person. To go home to the one I love. To wake up and have breakfast and coffee with that person.

Sex does not equal love. Sex is a basic human instinct that we all have and should embrace. So why is it so taboo? Why should we be denying our basic instincts, when in reality - it is who we are?

Thoughts? Let's get an active discussion going.
No, monogamy is where it's at
You're wrong. Sex does equal love
Sex and love are separate things
You're right Soaks, Keep on bangin'
It's complicated

I think there are different kinds of love. Longstanding love that lasts, and short term passionate lust/love. Kind of like the difference between happiness and joy.

A lot of people can't separate the two. Had friends that tried the lifestyle but ended up dropping out. She just couldn't follow the rules. Plus on of her "fwb's" turned into a predator and split the couple up for awhile. Good thing her man was a good one and they worked thru it.

No, sex definitely does not equal love.
If I was in a happy solid relationship I wouldn't even think of seeing or having sex with anyone else.. why risk what you have? What would your partner say if he found out? ... or does he see other people too?
I might see a man and think ooh he's hot.. but would not take it any further.

For myself at least I am capable of sex on the basis of physical attraction alone, but I'm not capable of feeling in love with out there being actual regular sex.

Separate emotions even if it requires the same tools. Sex is physical activity without caring what happens to the other person afterwards.

Why is it taboo? Depends by whom

Sex and live are separate, and there are many kinds of love. I love my children , my friends and pets. In a committed relationship where we are lovers as well as friends, ongoing honest communication is essential. Perhaps it could turn into a swinger relationship with both agreeing to it. To sneak behind someone's back , is not acceptable. I am talking about looking or fantasizing about other people, that is in our nature. Yes it is complicated lol

No, sex does not equal love. Sex is a vital part of most people's lives, but sometimes it is no longer present in a loving relationship - for a variety of reasons. Some people in a deep and loving relationship want to have sex with others, together or alone whilst maintaining their special bond. Others want the sexual aspect of their relationship to be exclusive to them. It is, and should always remain, the business only of the people involved. With that said, having sex with an outsider whilst being in a supposedly monogamous relationship should be an absolute no, no. All good relationships are based on trust. A purely sexual relationship is based on lust - not quite the same thing!

it is not the sex with others that strains a relationship. although the sexual act is what your SO can put a finger on... it is the broken trust that puts a wall between loving partners.
although the picture of you fucking another hangs before the SO's eyes, it is the question of when will the next one cum that will linger long after words of forgiveness have been spoken.
so yes i agree sex and love do not always share the same bed... love and trust are inseparable

there is a world of difference between insanity and stupidity

Sex does NOT equal love, and it's a truism. No belief required.


A corollary to keep in mind; there's fucking, and making love, but you don't make love without a bunch of great fucking.

To me they certainly are separate things, obviously I don’t love all the women that I have been with. Most id say that I “liked” them and formed a type of love for (as a friend or something).

I know myself too though, and I wouldn’t step out for a one night stand or anything else if I was completely in love and being taken care of sexually. Nor would I tolerate it from her. To me if I get the great sex I know I need at home, why jeopardize it. Its not that I don’t fantasize, cuz no one can stop their natural tendencies, I’ll just stop there.

So while I am a total man whore when I consider myself single, I do seek monogamy and at that level of a loving relationship they do become entwined, for me.

While others may not, I totally agree with you, there are worlds of differences between sex and love making

This is also the reason why I have given up SEX already years ago. Sitting at a bar and fantasizing about going home with the handsome man on the other end, having SEX does not even enter into my mind. As you stated, it is an animal behavior, not knowing him, not knowing him at all, no emotions involved, just physical desires without any mental or emotional influence.

God did not design us women to love only one man, he made sure we have the ability to love more than one, it is all up to the men Making love to our man or men, is what changes the value of our life, which makes it so wonderful. Only orgasm from love making last for a long time

Orgasms from sex are not lasting, we feel empty rather quick again, needing more, which can live to a sex addiction and dissatisfaction.

If you find only one man you can love or a dozen, just don’t lower yourself to sex, it is an empty experience in the long run.

-I think you're asking two different questions here. I think most people understand that love and sex aren't the same thing. Of course, some people cannot have sex with someone they do not love or are not in love with.

I think choosing to have sex with someone who is not your SO is only a problem IF your S/O is unaware, and is not consenting of you making that choice. If you both agree that you both can freely choose to have sex with other people, then there is no problem.

I used to think sex was the same as love but as I have gotten older and my marriage ended I have started to realize that they are two separate things.
If you truly love someone and you are together the sex part takes a back seat to the love you have for that person.
I can go have sex with someone and yes if may be great sex but I dont have a true connection with the person. Its sex and sex only. If I am in a relationship with someone its sex and all the other things that go with it. Waking up next to her, having deep conversation and wanting to be around them.
So why the need for outside sex? I do believe that humans like most animals were not meant to be with only one person. Doesn't mean we are incapable of love but that we have needs and instincts that are above that.
I have all the respect in the world for those that are together in every sense of the word. I just dont feel its right for me.

No problem if you are both in an open relationship but if he is expecting you to be his one and only you are a cheater. it is about being truthful honest and faithful. You want your cake and eat it too. Seems a bit self centered.

You are right they are not the same thing. I have not had sex with anyone I have loved yet. All mine have been open and never reached the just the two of us forever stage. There were women i was in love with that I never got to be with. However some people equate sex only with people they are in love with. I guess it works for them.

I do think Love and Sex are separate but still connected things. IMO sex is one of the ways to show love and if that is true then I an see why some individuals would feel that you are giving their love away by having sex with some one else. Truly as long as my SO doesn't betray me emotionally, she can have her fun. The key is that we know where the line is in our relationship.

There is alot to see out there, so get out & experience the what the world has to offer.......or not

imho, no, sex does not equal love. Sex is a biological human function. Real love, is unconditional, and , well, spiritual if you will. No sex required.

No matter what kind of relationship one is involved in, if you are honest with yourself, and others, in theory, it shouldn't be a problem. It's when people are dishonest, either with themselves or with others, that things start to go haywire.

When you love a person, you are with them, despite everything, even if the sex is bad. I think that if sex is bad, it is because in reality, everything is bad in everyday life, and the relationship will not last as such.
When everything works in daily life and in bed and there is not only love, but also complicity, you don't need anyone else.

Sex and love can be separate things to some people. Is it one-time meet-up, or short term NSA type of meet-ups fairly easy to keep separate. Beyond that I personally feel it can be more complicated if trust, feelings shared, and emotional feelings are involved beyond just the movement of one sexual position to the next position and just going through the motions, without feelings or emotional connection to the other party you are meeting up with. I thought when I was younger i could and did do that in one or two relationships. But I learned over time I cannot do that now. It has to be more than such sex for me, in my later years and now.

You are a lucky woman, but how can you have SEX with other men to whom you have no emotional connection? My boyfriends love me, I love them, but when I was on Krk and dozens of men wanted to have sex, I declined all of the offers.

Some guys were very handsome, perfect age, perfect \8 for me, but I could have not given myself to them. I got to fall in love with the person, not only with his body

NOT condemning you at all, perhaps I am immature, lacking experience or desire, perhaps you will share with me one day, how you got to this point

I believe if you love someone fully, and maintain honesty about personal desires and or fantasy's, the need for friends with benefits will fall to the way side. Sex might not equal love but great sex come's from love and respect.

I have to disagree the absolute best sex was with someone I just met. It has more to do with attitude and what you are willing to do to please a partner. Some people will never be great at sex since they are selfish and don't care about the other person's pleasure. Some people might be willing and put out a great effort but lack experience but they can become great all the time.

I think when people love someone they put on the rose colored glasses and elevate the other person. You overlook their faults, shortcomings, and mistakes. You cloud your perception due to emotion. It feels better to you because you want it to be.

My wife have been happily swinging for 18 years and have been very much in love for 24. Swinging is just that sex nothing more nothing less. For us it is no more than a hand shake. We have discussed it many times that if one of us wants to stop living the lifestyle just say so and we are done and will live a happy life together with just each other.
If any one is tipping a toe in the swinging lifestyle and has to ask that.
My advise to them is DON'T DO IT. It will end badly with jealousy issues. If a person cant discriminate between love and just raw monkey sex the lifestyle is not for them.

Sex and love are two separate things. I am married and I love my wife, but I have had sex with others for certain reasons. I love my wife, but when it came to having sex with others, that is just what it was, sex. There is one person where thought it would just be sex, but she and I are in love with each other. She knows that I love my wife, but she also knows that I do love her and she loves me.

Yes Sex and Love are DRASTICALLY different things. Love involves much more closeness connection to your partner even during the physical act.
It is more like an act of creating a union between 2 souls. Taking time for each to become familiar with one another, to feel as if both of you are finally home.
SEX on the other hand is just a physical act of gratification for the body and nothing else.

Sex and Love are two very different things. I love my kids and friends and family but if I am in a relationship and we are exclusive than it will not go any further. I am one if I start dating any man I do not go out on them. If you go out with every Tom, Dick and Harry how can you find the one that is right for you.

Nothing can replace a loving relationship , but as we age we realize sex is not love , it is healthy to have sex and it is a great stress release . Sometime our soul mate can not preform due to age or prostrate problems . I see no problem with having a fwb , as long as hubby knows , and friend knows he is not replacing mate , is discreet and realizes it just sex .

Yes, I agree sex is separate from love but what happens when you fall in love with your sex partner? That happened to me I fell in love with my sex partner and she loved it because she was taking advantage of me spoiling her. When I confessed my love for her, I told her I am not going to love someone that cannot return my love for her. That is exactly what happen I broke it off even though the sex was great. You, get to a certain point where you want more than what the person is willing to give. To this this day she still doesn't get that. Why can't we have good sex, friendship and, trust all in one relationship?

The presumption of the poll is that we all have the same defined definition of what is meant by the word "love." In Greek, there are 5 distinct words for love. In English? Well there is "infatuation" which many mistake for "love". What other words do we have? "Affinity?" You have strong desires for someone but does that equal "love?" I have an "affinity" for sports cars but not for the family sedan. There's also, "adoration." I still visit two of my college professors in their senior care homes because I "adore" being with them. I don't worship them but I hold them in the very highest regards.

Back to the Greek. There is eros, sexual love. Philaeo, or brotherly love. Then there is agape, with involves the will over and above the emotions. You speak of monogamy as equal to love. From experience, I would say that more closely aligns with agape than eros. Eros all too quickly (in my circumstance anyway) erodes away. Now there is a mixture of philaeo and agape. There is a mutual acceptance of the commitment regardless of the personal emotional relationship with your partner.

Though to define love is relative, one thing is certain, it didn't come from a rock prior to the "big bang." It came from a Person. Now if you want me to wax eloquent on that subject, perhaps that should be addressed privately so as not to ruffle feathers.

Sex and making love are different. Sex is a dinner. Making love is a dinner and dessert and a good bottle of wine.

Humans have a physical need for sex. Every human being is going to find other potential partners attractive and sexy and will be at least a little excited at the prospect -- even if s/he doesn't act on it.

Most humans also have a need to make love. A human being in a loving relationship is going to make love and be physically and emotionally satisfied -- maybe enough to pass on other opportunities. But some of those human beings will be able to separate sex from making love and be able to have both that loving relationship and outside sexual adventures.

Polyamory is most likely the default setting for human beings, but culture and religion have beaten that out of most of us. That's unfortunate.
