It’s not just about penetration of the body.
I need pentration of the soul.
I need connection.
I need devotion.
I need protection.
Every inch of me needs to feel secure.
We concentrate so much on the act of sex, that we forget intimacy. The closeness of being with another person. Being able to let our guards down. To be ourselves. To be free.
We forget to look deep in our lover’s eyes. To say what we mean and mean what we say.
We forget to grab their hand in public; a simple gesture that says, “You’re mine”.
We forget to touch their arm, rub their head, place their face in our hands. Gentle touches that say, “I love you”.
We forget to be close. A simple hug at the end of the day that says, “Lay your burdens down. Rest.”
We forget to kiss them softly and deeply. Acts to say, “I want you”.
And the things we forget can be the demise of our relationships.
Don’t forget intimacy.
