Make love not war is an anti-war slogan commonly associated with the American counterculture of the 1960s. It was used primarily by those who were opposed to the Vietnam War, but has been invoked in other anti-war contexts since. Gershon Legman claimed to be the inventor of the phrase.

The 1933 book The Mass Psychology of Fascism by Wilhelm Reich was the first to claim that sexual repression leads to fascism and war.
