Love vs. Sex

I don't think there's any question that these two terms are NOT interchangeable. But they are linked, and there's a continuum here. It's not all black and white, at least not from where I sit.

There are plenty of folks here and elsewhere who have sex frequently without any form of "love", or even friendship involved. But if you look at the profiles you find so many with phrases like "friends first". And friendship is a form of love. Maybe not the deep, soul-mate sort of love but at least some form of affectionate feeling for the other person. And I find that it is that affection, whether for your soulmate or just for someone you care about, that amplifies the sexual experience and makes it more meaningful and satisfying. Sex with a total stranger is, to me, a hollow act. I find it not much better than masturbation. But with someone I like, admire, and have warm feelings for is more of a sharing act. This is someone I can GIVE to, and care whether she is enjoying herself or not. And this, dear reader, is why it takes two to tango. Does it require love? It requires some level of love, that of friendship.
