Luis Gomez answers on Quora: The most commonly known differences are basically commitment and emotional investment. Love making is sex between two people that is more than just the physicality of it. It’s done on an emotional and sometimes spiritual level that is found between two people in love (usually).
Sex, however, is done purely for the physical pleasure, and can be done all kinds of ways to get it. Friends with benefits, one night stands, as well as threesomes (and up), are all examples of having sex purely for sex's sake.
Israel Ramirez answers on Quora: Love making is an old fashioned term used by people, in love with each other, who want sex to seem more special or binding. People who want to stay together forever use that term to emphasize that sex is beautiful and loving; that it means more than joining body parts and experiencing orgasms. It is too bad that the term has gone out of use because it refers to something real and beautiful.
Franklin Veauxanswers on Quora: The difference exists, as near as I can tell, exclusively in the minds of people who believe that love has to be expressed only through one particular kind of sex, and any other kind of sex is "dirty."
Sharon Egan answers on Quora: I think sex is a neutral term while love making describes tender, loving sex. It can include adoration of your partner, his body, etc. If you love him, do it.
Anonymous answers on Quora: Sex is biomechanical and instinctive. We all know how to do it. Whereas, love making is seductive. It is from beginning to end, from anticipation to conclusion, the 'Art of Seduction.' All for one purpose, so that the two of you may experience the metaphysical being of one. This is love making and it is truly an art.
