Not Just About Sex Anymore

As I have aged, I realize the importance of intomesee...
It releases feel good endorphins
It allows us to learn to trust and be trusted
It restores our souls
It strikes a spark of new life
Intimacy brings us hope
Permits us to know we do not have to carry life's burdens alone
Could you, the reader please add to this list? Thanks

As I have aged and missed so much, I've clarified what intimacy is to me. That purification of the sexual me has made me realize that what I miss most in my sexless life, isn't so much the sex act itself, as much as it is the simple acts of affection. Hugging, kissing, holding hands, cuddling, talking, really listening all have more currency in my life now than intercourse. The simple and sincere enjoyment of my company, my thoughts, my passions and my laughter, are what I so badly miss. It's what I seek. And I will find it in another. And when I do, the great sex will come with it. It's a natural extension of all that wonderful prelude.

wow...
well put
thanks for the addition...
