“Making love is about more than just right now. Making love is a physical manifestation of how you feel about your partner; namely how much you love them. It’s not as much about getting a great orgasm as it is connecting on a deeper level, becoming one person and expressing your feelings in a sexual manner. Generally, making love tends to be slow, sensual and not at all selfish. It’s not about getting to the end result (the orgasm), it’s about taking your time to show your partner how much you care.”
