Today I had occasion to look in the thesaurus for synonyms for "love." I wasn't looking for part of the "love" entry that would have synonyms for "have sex," but I was surprised by what was listed there:
Grass? Shine? Press? Grass? Grass?!
Meanwhile, I haven't seen the words "cosset" and "dandle" in a long time, and in both cases I would think of them as more something one does to a puppy than a paramour.* I'm not sure I've ever seen the word "clind." I enter "clind" into Google and it keeps asking me if I really mean "blind," which is something I've heard people say love is, as opposed to "clind."
* Although for all I know this is a boundary being actively explored by some anthropocentrism-fighting pioneers within the ASA Animals & Society section.
