    My Turn?

    I love being held, feeling my boyfriends arms around me holding me close. Unfortunately It's usually me that ends up holding him. that feels good too, but I have a hard time communicating to him that the things I like doing to (for?) him are also things that I would enjoy...

    To Feel Safe In His Arms...

    I love to be held. To rest my cheek against his strong chest. To feel his arms around my waist. To inhale his masculine scent as he strokes my hair and holds me close. To feel soft and feminine; loved and desired. To hear his heatbeat echoing mine. To freeze the moment...

    It Makes Me Feel Wanted

     Some deep memory of childhood perhaps although the first 5 years was in an orphanage and I'm not sure how much I got that there.  My aunt and uncle would check me out from time to time, they told me.  I guess I didn't get enough holding during this formative age...

    Yep

    I am a very sensual person, in that I like to connect to all senses as much as I can.  I like to identify as much memories and associations to others as I can, through not only conversation, but scent, touch, voice and all aspects, yet especially touch. I love to be held...

    Surrounding Me

    There is something about being held...the unspoken messages passed through the arms of the other person and into your being. When I am hurting, being held by a friend around the shoulders communicates comfort and care for me and my situation.  Usually that is something I...

    Hold Me

    I love being held by my hubby, one place where I feel safe and happy.  When he holds me, it feels like all the stress comes out of me.

    I Crave This.....

    I have talked about this often in my stories but I have a constant craving to be held. I think about it constantly. It would just be so nice to feel close to someone and to drop my defences for once. Just to be able to relax and be supported by another person instead of always...
