Who actually uses the term "to make love?" It's "to have sex" Goddamnit
I don't like to make threads about sex. Sex threads are too "I'm an 18-year-old virgin" for me. But this is about sex jargon, not the physical experience! Anyway this has been really bugging me, for the longest time and I want public opinion on this important matter.
I have never in my life said, "we made love last nite" or "let's make love." Do people actually say that? I know people like to THINK the term "making love" is reserved for relationships where people are truly, deeply, madly in adoration of one another. And no, I have never had a relationship like that, but I had a mature relationship. Those words were only spoken once and it felt so insincere. Do people think they're supposed to say that because they see it in the movies, or it's romantic or because it's politically correct to say in a non-casual setting?
Furthermore, I recently read a tell-all interview with Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend of a month, Isaac Cohen, and he said many times over how they "made love." I am sure they were not in love, and he himself made it very clear it was very much a rebound relationship saying Britney was not over Kevin and kept her wedding dress framed on the wall and that every second he had to reassure her she wasn't fat. So why would he use that term for such a short-term relationship that was obviously a rebound for Britney Spears?
