    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love intimacy so much.

    I like foreplay more than sex. But then when i become intimate with te guy, naturally sex follows. I dont rly enjoy sex because it is hard to ****** and usually it gets rough and basically it is not as hot as intimacy/foreplay. Any other girls feel the same?

    The Repayment Part 8

    I Love A Sensual Touch

    One of the best feelings in the world is lying on the couch while someone lightly scratches my back. I don't know what it is but this relaxes me and makes me feel better. But it really goes beyond that, I love a soft sensual touch, skin on skin. Being close with someone...

    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...

    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...

    Just This

    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.

    I Love Intimacy Too

    I love intimacy too. You could say I crave it. My girlfriend seems to think it is only about sex with me, but I truly crave making love to her. The connection. She doesn't get it. She understands the intimacy, for sure, and I think she likes the connection too, but I think she...

    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.

    Swelling Symphonies

    Sex is a wonderful thing,

    but greater than the power of sex is the power of intimacy. When we accept and understand one another, trust one another, and feel able to be ourselves around one another, we find a kind of comfort that Virgil (or was it Al Wilson) was referencing when he wrote, "Now I know what...
