Are “making love” and “having sex” the same thing?

Dr. Katherine Solano is a sex therapist. Trained in health ethics, he consults in urology at the Cochin Hospital in Paris. He is the co-founder of Doctical, a telehealth platform that supports people affected by cancer in their intimate health.

In sexual matters, as elsewhere, words have meaning. Depending on the terms used, the message is not the same. So, “making love” or “having sex” are not the same thing. But what exactly is the difference?

Making love can mean several things. It can have the meaning of “making love come true”. When we experience a feeling of love, we generally want to express it in a concrete way, so that this feeling does not remain in the head or in the heart, therefore invisible. This feeling is a force that wants to come out of us. Making love accentuates this feeling, allowing it to be embodied.

But it can also mean “making love”. When we’re having sex, caresses, skin-to-skin contact, and even more orgasms trigger the release of oxytocin, sometimes called the love hormone. This hormone promotes bonding between the two partners. This is why regular sex literally “creates” love. People who have a regular relationship with a friend (colloquially known as “sex friend“), and think they can’t connect, they’re wrong. They always bond because their hormones work for it.
