Is the point of this story that he should have said "make love to?"
Hmmm, picture that for a moment.... and I can tell you aren't from farm country. Bulls don't sidle up to a cow, and bat their eyes, and break out a bottle of champagne, and spend an evening of silly flirtations, capped with an early evening kiss on the cheek, in hopes of coming back the next night for a romantic evening of "love making". They just come up behind the cow, jump up on 'em, and start thrusting away.
But then again, I suppose you consider a film of Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jameson going at it all sweaty and graphic to be a romantic flick, all full of "making love" and stuff. ;)
