Are love and sex different or same ?

Woody Allen gave his humerous explanation.

“The difference between sex and love is that sex relieves tension and love causes it”. Woody Allen

What are your thoughts on this ?

Thank you

  1. Sex and love can be separated, but at great cost. They are built into us as the same thing. But people get hurt, and then they still want the good feelings of sex without the emotional risk of love. So they separate out the love from the sex so they can safely have sex without risking love. What they don’t realize is that in separating like this, they then make it difficult, and sometimes impossible to feel love.

    Ηave a nice day!!!

  2. I would say the combination of the two is best. Nothing to beat the emotions involved when getting physically intimate with the one you love. But very few are blessed wjth such luxury.
    As to your question
    They are definitely different from each other. There are many who have sex just for the sake of having sex…no emotional involvement at all involved. It’s just satisfying lust for them or rather their physical needs.
    But there are a few who truly loves somebody and never laid a finger on them too.
    But having sexual feelings or physical attraction towards someone you love is quite natural.
    Ok, now could we get ur view too please Sri?

      1. “Nothing to beat the emotions involved when getting physically intimate with the one you love. But very few are blessed with such luxury”……….I couldn’t agree more.

      2.As to your question
      “They are definitely different from each other. There are many who have sex just for the sake of having sex…no emotional involvement at all involved. It’s just satisfying lust for them or rather their physical needs”……..I couldn’t agree more.

      3. “But there are a few who truly loves somebody and never laid a finger on them too”………I could n’t agree more.

      4. “But having sexual feelings or physical attraction towards someone you love is quite natural”……….I could n’t agree more.

      5. “Ok, now could we get ur view too please Sri?”……….You can not get my view because I am helpless since you have covered all aspects of LOVE & SEX ….what all can happen in real life ! And you have exhausted all my options beforehand ! Hats off !

  3. They are different but they are related. For sex is a physical act and love is metaphysical (felt in your heart or soul or whatever one may believe as the non physical part of their body).
    For you can have sex with someone without loving them, it fulfills a physical desire. And showing affection and intimacy is usually how one fulfills that spiritual/emotional desire to connect. So although you may love someone, you may not want to have sex with them ever.
    They both are expressions of the self that seeks to connect with someone… hugs, kisses, kind words, gratitude, small acts of kindness and initiative… That’s how people can show love without getting their genitals involved.
    Unless both parties want to do that, consenting adults can do whatever. Just be mindful of consequences, appropriate time/place and dare to continue to explore and love and experience.
    Omg I’m so tired I don’t know if what I’ve written makes sense. But… your question was very moving. I wanted to have my say in case I forget or never end up getting to it. 😊

    • Thank you Kalliope.
      What you have expressed makes 100% sense.
      As you said one is physical and the other is metaphysical.
      The whole thing depends on the persons involved and what exactly they want or would like to express.
      you said “That’s how people can show love without getting their genitals involved”………..clears all the confusion once for all.
      Thanks again for this wonderful insight.
