Please Touch Me There, and There, with Your Words
Physical touch is necessary, but so is emotional connection.
|Demeter deLune||Mar 26|
I won’t deny physical touch is important, essential even. It isn’t always available, especially right now. When we can’t touch our loved ones with our bodies, we can do the next best thing.
We can touch them with our words.
Emotional connections are just as important as physical ones. I’d even argue they’re more important. The ability to communicate effectively with those we’re physically connected to is vital. If we can’t share how we feel without fear of repercussion or shame, how are we to share our physical bodies with our partners?
Touch me with your words
It’s been said the brain is the biggest sex organ we have. I won’t argue with this. Someone who can touch me with their words has me tight in their grasp. It doesn’t have to be with sex talk, either.
Intellectual discourse is just as sexy to me as a conversation about sex.
A person who is in touch with their feelings is especially attractive. Someone who isn’t afraid to tell me how they’re feeling in the moment, sharing their hopes and dreams, now that is sexy.
But it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
