I was wondering if either choice was used more commonly, as my dictionary says 'to' is an old-fashioned usage. Also, I've read somewhere 'with' may bring more equality to mind as it may suggest sort of 'mutual' relationship.
Thanks. Then, how about the imperative form? Can somebody ask another person to make love with them?
I have both CALD and Longman, but this came from Cambridge Dictionary:
make love to sb old use to speak romantically and give attention to someone, especially in order to make them love you
Mr Jackson, I do believe you are making love to me.
Ah. Well that meaning of "make love to" is old fashioned. It now means "to have sex with."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thanks to you both, now I feel I'm quite clear about it. Best!
