TUMBLR ASK: Yes I agree. I have never thought of sex or connecting it with love. love is interest and joy whenever you’re in the presence of, or communicating with someone, not the desire to take off your clothes and jump into bed. like, what’s the link man?
I wouldn’t go so far to say that sex and love are not linked at all. Obviously sex and love are not the same thing, and one cannot replace the other, but it’s not true that they aren’t linked. I do mean for love between spouses/lovers, and not love for your friends and family.
Sex is a natural part of life and sexual desire/attraction is part of being human. I don’t see a need to deny it, minimise it or magnify it. It’s just the way it is. And for a lot of people, sex is a celebration and expression of love.
There are a lot of ways sex can be twisted, and be separated from love, but that’s because people can be twisted (I hope this doesn’t sound moralistic), and not because love and sex are essentially discrete and unrelated things.
