The Depths of Sexual Intimacy


Let's start by setting the record straight: you do not need to be intimate with someone in order to have fulfilling sex with them.


Today's focus is on the benefits of intimacy in sexual experiences. We're talking about a connection that transcends the mere physical aspect, deepening the experience of sex itself. Intriguingly, such depth doesn't require a committed relationship; it hinges on the essential element of trust.


Defining Sexual Intimacy


When I talk about sexual intimacy, I’m referring to that unique connection between two individuals that enables them to break down the walls that might otherwise close them off during sex. I’m talking about the kind of intimacy that heightens your pleasure both mentally and physically, allowing you to experience vulnerability and authenticity.


So, How Do You Attain This Level of Intimacy?


Like I said before, the answer is: trust.


To truly open up, be vulnerable, and experience deep intimacy with someone, trust is non-negotiable. It's the belief that your partner has your best interests at heart, that they're not merely using you to satisfy their needs, and the confidence that they respect your whole being just as you respect theirs. In this kind of connection, judgment has no place, and the sole objective is the well-being of each other.


This level of connection can exist in various types of relationships, whether they're committed or not. It ultimately hinges on the people involved and their willingness to foster such a deep connection. So, while it may seem impossible, the reality is that this level of sexual intimacy is well within reach for anyone willing to seek it.


4 Ways To Reach This Level of Connection


  1. Explore each other’s body’s and communicate boundaries. More often than not we jump into bed with a set of moves that we’ve remembered from the last porno or randevu we had. We fear straying from what we know because well it's the unknown. But magic happens when you take time to explore different sensations.

  2. Communication, communication, communication. Talk to your partner about your expectations, concerns and wishes. If we are to trust someone else we need to connect with them emotionally. We need to know what they want out of this experience and they need to know what we want. Communicate before, during and after.

  3. Focus on eye contact, touch and breathing. If you want to be more connected use your senses. Remember to use all of your different senses when it comes to sex and do not forget how powerful eye contact can be during non-verbal communication.

  4. Partake in fore and after-care. Sex is a vulnerable experience no matter what, so to create an intimate safe space learn how to partake in fore and aftercare with your partner.


The fear of intimacy during sex stems from the misconception that it implies romantic feelings or a deep emotional connection. This fear often leads us to approach sex as a mechanical procedure. However, it's important to recognize that intimate sex can be exceptionally fulfilling without needing commitment or a profound romantic relationship. It engages all our senses, both mentally and physically, creating a heightened experience.


So, don't let fear hold you back from embracing your intimate side; there's a world of passion and connection waiting to be explored.
