Love vs Sex
 

There is much difference between love and sex. It is interesting to see that both love and sex fall under the category of top 1000 frequently used words in the Oxford dictionary. That shows how much important these two words, love and sex, are. Love is mainly used as a noun and a verb. Apart from that, there are many phrases for love such as; for the love of God and love me, love my dog (this is a proverb). Sex, just like love, is also used as a noun and a verb. However, as a word, sex does not have much varied uses like love.

What is Love?

Love is an emotion of personal attachment and strong affection. In philosophical context, the term love is a virtue showing all of human affection, compassion and kindness. In the religious context, the term love is not just a virtue but is the foundation for all golden rule or divine law and the basis for all being. There is no one meaning or definition for love since the term “love” could mean several different things for different people. Love is an emotion or feeling. Love involves feelings of romance and attractions. A love could be a strong feel towards a person, object or to his or her goal only if one values them greatly, deeply and is committed to it. Since love is not a physical activity, as it is more related to feelings and emotions, therefore, it will not have any impact on the physical health of a person. Love is a relationship that could be between a father and son, between a girl and boy, mother and child, husband and wife, between two males, between male and female, between two females, etc. Love could be with or without sex.

Love occurs all the time with the person, object, god or anything. Love is mental feelings between two partners.

What is Sex?

On the other hand sex, is a biological event. Although there are several types of sex, however most of the sexual acts have certain things in general or common. Sex is a physical activity between two opposite genders. Sex is defined as making love. Sex could happen between a female and a male, between two males, between two females, between more than two persons or by one’s self. Sex is an act for getting sexual pleasure and for reproduction purpose. The term used for not having sex is called as abstinence. Some of the people, particularly who think it is not right to wait to have sex, think that abstinence is a completely bad thing. Sex could have physical effects in one’s body. A female could give birth after having sex with male. Sometimes there are chances of getting an STD. Sex is an intercourse with the aim of reproduction or sexual pleasure.
