Love, Sex and Making Love--Editorial

Rate This

"Making love." Those two words are music to the ears. "Having sex." Those two words are...hmmm....I don't know. Well, both have the same meaning don't they? Not quite! Making love is what lovers say who are emotionally involved. Having sex is what anyone can say who are well, just doing it for doing's sake any time. Does this make sense?

Kama Sutra was written by ancient Hindus for any two people who shared not just their bodies but their minds and souls. Kama means desire and Sutra means rule or a thread. Kama Sutra is derived from Sanskrit meaning the rules of desire or methods of making love to derive the maximum pleasure out of two bodies engaged in a sexual act out of love. That means making love is using love that two people feel for each other to produce a sense of euphoria which in turn increases love for each other. It is immersing one's self completely while giving yourself to your partner and contenting themselves with a total sense of completeness. Now, does it make sense?

Over the past 20 to 30 years or even more, Kama Sutra was taken into context in different ways. It's been exploited by people who are in the porn business. The positions that are suggested in Kama Sutra were meant to bring a sense of pleasure that two people in love give to each other. But in pornography the positions are being used to create pure disgust for people who are sensitive and pure animal satisfaction for people who have perverted minds. There is no sense in these sexual acts that are created to make one's mind wild with violent thoughts of hurting each other where people derive pleasure out of watching them on screen. Or for pure seduction for different reasons like money, an easy way to get involved, or in some cases in the name of dating and getting to know each other. In the case of married couples having sex is like eating and sleeping. It is part of the daily chore, something that has to be done in order to live with the partner.

Making love is the most sensitive way of expressing ones feelings towards your partner. When a person makes love to their partner they tend to flow along with their body and mind.
