Intimacy definitely doesn't have to mean sex. Sexual intimacy is sex, sure. Intimacy, by itself, to me mean a deep connection and the willingness to make yourself vulnerable in front of one another. That's not always present in people who have sex, either, although many people who are sexual can use sex as a way to build up intimacy, as being naked in front of each other and controlling each other's pleasure is a very clear way to make yourself vulnerable.

Certainly not the only one, though.
