I don't read or write romance or erotica, but I have some sex and romance in my novel. My scenes are sensitive and I purposely don't go into saucy details just because it's not at the core of my story. Do the terms "making love" or "made love" or "love-making" seem dated to the younger generation? I was reading a forum recently where the term came up and the reaction was either laughter and eye-rolling, or some even found it creepy or gross. I was tickled by the conversation, but I honestly always thought just the opposite. I'm uh.. middle aged, but I don't really feel quite that out of touch. I know...now you're giggling too, but I'm serious lol. In my day, it was considered a fairly polite term for sex. More than that, it was when it was meaningful with someone you cared about. If it is just a steamy romp, then we have scores of other euphemisms, of which I probably know more than most. What say you, writers of the doing of the deed? tl/dr - Is the term "making love" creepy?
