I Know That Real Intimacy Has Nothing to Do With Sex

soul to soul 251 People


    Not having intimacy makes sex horrible in my opinion. My husband does not care a thing about true intimacy and I dont want him to touch me at all. Not having the holding and  touching makes me feel used. I always tell him I am not an automatic p...

    What Most of Us Crave Is Not Sex, But Intimacy.

    I believe intimacy is more of an emotional thing. Sex a physical thing.   "The value of the personal relationship to all things is that it creates intimacy... and intimacy creates understanding... and understanding creates love." ~ Annis Nin “There are two...

    If You Don't Know This,

    you don't know anything. They are 2 seperate things. That does not mean that they don't come together, but they both exist very seperately.

    Intimacy Is Vital to a Healthy Relationship

    This group is so very perfect for me. I love true intimacy.  I'm talking the inside kind.  I *need* to have an intimate connection to really enjoy sex.  If there is no connection, I don't look forward to it, i don't want it, and I don't or can't...

    But Sometimes It Kills the Ego

    It was just about an hour ago, I logged off to go join a beautiful woman in bed.  She's not mine, she's Beth's girlfriend.  I am Beth's main alter, as she is on "vacation."  This part is not important though.  There I was, close, intimate...

    Through Learning...

    To me, intimacy has to do with learning and teaching one another. If you can achieve that closeness, it can be a wonderful thing. But you always have to keep in mind that people come and go.

    INTIMACY At It's Best!!

    There's something about our psychological, spiritual, and physical makeup that cries out for intimacy with another. That's because God designed marriage to be the most intimate of all human relationships, in which we share life intellectually, socially...

    Created, Lost, Regained

    In Autumn, 17 years ago, I met my wife and we soon fell in love. We opened up. I shared with her not just the beauty, but also the strangeness and perversions that were in my mind. She shared back. At that point we knew everything about one another, the good, the bad, the...
