Why is Intimacy so important?

Every human being craves intimacy. At times, it is difficult for men to express it but that doesn’t mean they don’t crave for it. Recently, Indian men on the internet honestly revealed that what intimacy means to them and it’s not just about having sex!  Relationship experts revealed men are more physical in their journey to intimacy than women but it is not only the way to get there.

Emotional Intimacy definitely matters!

From a very young age, we are taught not to express our emotions. For example – Tum Ladke ho kaise ro sakte ho? Emotional intimacy definitely matters! If we can share our feelings with our partner without the fear of being judged, that’s the most important form of intimacy. If a man opens up to a woman, it means he is showing his vulnerable side to her which could have been taught to hide.  It is the most intimate and valued feeling for a man, says Karan Dubey, a 28 -Year -old, Software Engineer.
