    DO You Know What Intimacy Is?

    Today, the word intimacy has taken on sexual connotations. But it is much more than that. It includes all the different dimensions of our lives, yes, the physical, but also the social, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects as well. Intimacy really means total life sharing. And...

    I find this poetry by Pablo Neruda

    as one of the most intense and intimate. Love the last few lines....... Sonnet XVII I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the...

    Love To Touch.

    To be with a man who loves to touch you and be touched. To kiss and be kissed. After the sex, wants to hold you and be held. That is the ultimate intimacy. Haven't found one so far. Hope to.

    Just This

    Feel your hand on mine, your fingers playing with mine tenderly; your soft caress in my hair and neck. Lean against you and feel your body warmth. Run my fingers across your smooth, golden, youthful skin and in your matted, crazy hair. Brush past you and feel my heart skip a...

    The Repayment Part 9

    Home or the house perhaps was not the right place to come after such a sweet occurrence. Shrey and Frank were watching a football match on the television when the Two For Joy entered. Shrey - Man, where were you? Come on, freshen up and come to the table. Today we have made a...

    My Pleasure

    Women are amazing. With their soft milky white or tan skin..their passionate eyes, welcoming lips, and soothing voices.. I yearn to be between a beautiful woman's legs. To feel every part of their body against mine, to feel her chest rise.. rise so high that her nipples caress...

    AMAZING Intimacy

    A Part Of My Life.

    It was July. A little humid for a mid-summers eve, but not uncomfortable. My stomach was tight, like I had just done a hundred sit ups. She had bright red hair. Her 5'6" frame seemed like something out of a dream. So feminine. I had decided that I wanted to get to know her better...

    Being Intimate

    Allow It

    Being able to be intimate with another is probably one of the most wonderful experiences in life. By being intimate we allow ourselves to stand naked and vulnerable in front of the other without the fear of being too exposed. We allow ourselves to be touched in many different...

    Of Course It's Not Just About Sex.

    Intimacy is definitely not just about sex. Sure that is an important part of it. But intimacy is also what you feel when you're not having sex. To truly care for someone means dropping what you're doing at a moment's notice for that person. How does your significant other treat...

    I Enjoy Intimacy

    I been in a few relationships over the years and not all were laced with intimacy. Although I know how it feels and what it is, I am still unable to define how some ladies provide this warm, and most joyous feeling. It makes my body dance with every touch.

    The Calm Before The Storm.

    To me intimacy is an essential part of lovemaking. intimacy can be a stolen glance across the dinner table in a crowed resturant. Holding hands or snuggling while watching tv, a text during the day just to say I love you. Little moments shared here and there can build a fire that...

    That Soft Spot

    Men's faces are not as soft as women's. That's just an obvious fact.But I have noticed something. There is a place beneath a man's temple, between that place where hairs start growing and the side of the ear, where the skin is incredibly thin and soft, almost fragile. And when I...

    Intimacy is more than just a connection between

    lovers. It's how we connect with our world and the people in it. The thought of how people communicate and reach out to each other has been on my mind lately. If you watch people around you long enough you can start to feel the tention or calm coming off of them. For example...
