What about intimacy of the SELF? Knowing oneself?
I haven't read the "Framing Intimacy" thread, but reading this part my immediate thought was, "Well...yeah!" I've known many people who had a fear or dislike of certain kinds of intimacies. Sometimes it was intimacy with others, sometimes it was intimacy of themselves. Sometimes it was both, and shying away from intimacy of the self fed into shying away from various intimacies with others. However it happens, it definitely happens!
