This is something I'm kind-of curious about. I don't quite understand how sex could be loveless, not because I don't have sex with people that I don't love beforehand, but because I love the people I have sex with while I have sex with them.
For me, the act of sex is an act of pretty incredible intimacy and connection, but it doesn't strike me as something that should be kept locked-down and kept for only the most precious of people. I want to feel connected to people, and I want to be intimate with people. Sex is a way to relate to people, to link yourself with them in a way that normal interaction doesn't facilitate. Why should that be held back?
Connection with another sapient is such a hard thing to achieve, and it's one of the things that at the very least convinces me that people are worth loving. I feel that to connect with someone, no matter how briefly, is to truly love them. Even someone who is hated can be loved. So how is it possible to have 'loveless' sex? Is it truly possible to derive so little emotion from such intimate contact?
I've been with many people, even with my consent, but the worth of that connection has never faded. I'm not judging those who experience sex differently- I'm just trying to understand.
(NOTE: This was inspired by lordmomofenixed's post mentioning loveless sex. Apologies for two posts about sex in a row.)
(SECONDARY NOTE: I'm not trying to imply that sex is the only form of connection, just one of them.)
