It's more likely that one can convince oneself that one is falling in love with a sex partner when the sex is really good. It is probably the same neurochemical pathway as NRE (dopamine and/or oxytocin) that does this. This would explain why many people think they are "in love" until the "NRE" wears off. It's important to acknowledge that having great sex can sometimes fool us into thinking we are "in love" even if we are absolutely incompatible with someone in other ways that are necessary when it comes to sustaining a long-term intimate partnership.
