Intimacy can encompass a few things for me.

Physical intimacy is being comfortable sharing your personal space and/or sharing your body with another. Whether that is snuggling, hugging, kissing or having sex. Even standing really close. It is the ability to relax and shed self-consciousness about your body. This physical intimacy can include sexual intimacy.

Emotional intimacy is similar to the above in the feeling of comfort with closeness. The ability to share my fears, thoughts, secrets, hopes, dreams, desires, all the things that go through my heart and mind with ease. Being who I would be if no one was around only there are others around. The ones I can be intimate with. Spiritual intimacy may be included in emotional.

The presence of intimacy means the presence of trust. They are related intricately for me.

~Open up your mind and let me step inside.
Rest your weary head and let your heart decide. It's so easy.
When you know the rules.
It's so easy. All you have to do is fall in love.
Play the game.
Everybody play the game of love. Yeah...~
