Physical Intimacy and Emotional Connection - January 21

 

Keeping Alive Romance and Security...

 

Most women report that they need to feel emotionally connected to enjoy physical intimacy.  They need to feel loved and cherished.  They need displays of physical affection, but not necessarily the sex act itself.  Men, however, are motivated by the sexual act.  They need sexual intimacy and state that physical affection and feeling cherished aren't always necessary for them to feel sexually satisfied.  However, men still need affection and cherishing in the overall relationship.
