Intimacy is a form of relaxing and opening with/to another. A palpable form of trust. There's nothing else like it in terms of feeling whole and connected. For me, sex builds on that and is the creative flowering of the plant full of passion and intention to please. It's kind of a yin/yang kind of thing. Intimacy and sex, can exist one without the other, but the combination of the two is sweet oblivion.

It is more about feeling safe, than being alone!!!


This feels true!

Oh, wait! I thought that "sex and intimacy " is like
sharing pancakes without flipping it over.
Is it not? 😀

Couldn't agree more.

ChurchLess Level 7 Feb 23, 2020

I totally agree with this.

AzureHawk Level 3 Feb 21, 2020

Sometimes I just want sex. Pretty sure I'm not alone. 😀

@Desertcactus Sexual urges don't require intimacy. We're one of the few animals that seem to even have any awareness that "intimacy" is even a thing.

I don't care to get too lofty in my explanations when simple answers will suffice. And you're just making stuff up. 🙂

I’ve which a part of my journey where sex has endless possibilities At this time I’m more curious and enjoy the intersectionality of sensuality,sex & intimacy. So many hang ups of old don’t hang me up. Nice

It doesn’t matter for me if my brain tells great playtime is just sex-It’s fun fun fun
No analysis just fun and endless sensual possibilities


My cat is more affectionate than any man I've ever met . All I do is set out food twice a day , change his water , scoop the litter box , see that it's replaced as needed , and pet him .

That would make many men happy too! LOL


Great sex comes when there’s real intimacy

Hazydays Level 7 Feb 18, 2020

IMHO intimacy is what distinguishes making love from sex.

@Detritus true.


I wonder how much this is a factor in the search for simple intimacy. Is it possible that women resist intimacy because they're afraid they will be expected to pay off later?

BitFlipper Level 8 Feb 18, 2020

What do you mean by simple intimacy?
I'm not understanding.

@Wildflower non-sexual intimacy.

@BitFlipper I see. I think women resist intimacy because most men don't understand what it is or aren't interested. When women start to become intimate, men back off because it includes emotions. Most men think intimacy is sex.

@Wildflower that's a different way of stating what I said. Well, I guess there is no solution. As usual, it's all men's fault.

@BitFlipper what is men's fault? Did I blame men for something?

@Wildflower Look at what you wrote.
#1 ... because most men don't understand or don't care ...
#2 ... men back off because ... emotions.
#3 Most men think intimacy is sex.

All of the flaws described here are attributed to men alone. I'm looking for opportunities for those flaws to be corrected, and I see nothing that can be corrected by any individual man. That's why I say there is no solution.


That's very true especially for women but the sex is nice too 😊😜



Yes! Feeling safe to be you.

Wildflower Level 8 Feb 18, 2020

That's the best


That is the only type of intimacy. There is no other type of intimacy.
All is true except some want themselves used, tied down, dominated.

St-Sinner Level 9 Feb 18, 2020

So very true

RoyMillar Level 9 Feb 18, 2020

We want our brains and our psyches to touch, that is true intimacy.

so true
