Maby you need to take your blindfold off! Nothing has changed! At that love is just a word used for lust and the need for community. In the past people chose there mates on the social stature the rich found another rich person to wed inorfder . love is just a empity word with no real meaning


oh, really? many things changed. and when I said money, I'm talking about the prostitutes. I doubt that they were being paid by money for it.


Prostitution has been common for mor than 8000 years. If anything, there is less prostitution now than any other time in are past. In the end the reality is love is a meaningless word an nothing else.

I know, that's why I said "I doubt that they were being paid by money". and that is my point when you said "nothing changed". since I also doubt that there is already a money, like what you said, 8000 years ago. they were just trading things.

I would agree if you said that sex without love is meaningless but you said that love is a meaningless word...? it has lots of meanings itself, lol. And you said that it is a "word with no real meaning". therefore, it does have a meaning, doesn't it? but for me, the meaning itself depends on the person themselves.

I wouldnt exactly say that its the media's fault... you cant blame the media for everything! I believe its human nature aggravated by the media!! And its not a new trend.... If you know ur history! Humans have always been this way and nothing can change that! It's in our nature to pervert the things that are good and make them bad...

I act as if i know what love is,because every scientific study on love and the brain has shown the same thing. Love is just a survival mechanism, a need for interaction and lust. Do to humans being socal animals. Nothing more, go ahead and find a real study that said otherwise.

You should support your claims and post the scientific studies you've stated. People may believe it's "nothing more", but it all boils down to the individuals.

I believe love is something so much more than just lust and social status. Love is a an indesctructable feeling blossomed through friendship, an art. One that is flourished through years of healthy coexistence; that is why I believe you can marry your best friend.

If lust is one of the major factor you'd want to marry a person, then you do not love that person. The movie industries use the word "love" in movies in a way where it only exists to fulfill our sexual desires. To me, that is morally wrong. Not only is it an animal-esque desire, but it is unhealthy. I believe too much exposure will ultimately lead to depression and the questioning of one's existence in a negative form.

In the end, I believe love is the greatest form of friendship.

I think compassion (for other beings and nature) is something humankind should strive after. Instead most people seem to strive after "love" between themselves and a partner. I find simple love to be to egoistic in the world today, people need compassion as well. Love inside a family, or between friends etc, doesn't really mean anything or help the world if people still hate other humans based on skincolor, occupation etc, or exterminate animals, or deforestation of ex. rain forest. We support many of the problematic actions today just living our lives, being consumers and being part of the 'system'. Being human with simple goals in life ( instinct, born with) such as love & sex, won't be enough today. People need to start trying to be less simple minded, i.e. living like humans following basic instincts, we need to be more compassionate and smart about the future.

First of all sex isn't beautiful... the concept is, but the act itself is messy and gross. That being said, yeah the media is perpetrating this hyper-sexuality, but who is really to blame? It's that old saying: "sex sells", and since the media is such a huge money-making machine, the powers that be are going to do whatever gets people's attention the best, and that is half-naked men and women with perfect figures. You also have to understand that the target audience of these things are about as clever as a mole-rat. The media knows how to get these dim individual's attention. Picture your average slack-jawed television viewer watching network television and reality TV. What do you think will get his or her's attention more? Something emotionally or intellectually meaningful and challenging, or a gigantic ass or six pack abs shaking around in their faces?

Love is a feeling we have taught to society, and it's a beautiful thing, but take an isolated civilization, ask them about love, and they'll have no idea what the feeling is.Wish i still had that article that said as much :O Sorry i'm not really on topic here XD

I always thought the act of intercourse is for reproduction,and if reproduction is love,then so be it. However, I think it's not..so it really doesn't necessarily have to be about love whatsoever. However I do think we are reverting to how young people are reproducing(in the olden days they were 15,now they're also 15).

That's so overgeneralized and biased, you're distorting reality by yourself perceiving the extreme as the norms. In nature, sex among social animals is more than just mere act for reproduction. While human romantic love is more than just biological impulse and desire. Yet on average, human women begin their first menstruation at age 15.5. And on average the human brain doesn't fully mature until age 25, while at the same time its own social environment thus subsequently its own thinking can physiologically alter its own neurology. Therefore the only thing that's reverting is in fact the mainstream modern culture, still trapped in its deification of youthful ignorance and inexperience. And sadly, that's exactly what your culture/social environment is all about, when you're trapped and manipulated by social conformity and your own false-positive superstitions.

Ummm, there's no one to be blamed. Sex was never about love to begin with. That's why most species with the exception of some--such as birds and humans--keep multiple mates. Sex is about trying to carry on your gene as much as possible, to a basic definition. We humans are animals too just like lions, tigers, otters, etc. Our thing is we evolved to have rational thoughts so we put all these rules to simple primal things like sex.

So it was never about love to begin with. end of discussion
