I is for Intimacy -Part 2 can be found on Sex Spoken Here this coming Thursday.
Welcome to the A to Z of Sex. I’m Dr Lori Beth and I am your host. We are working our way through the erotic alphabet one letter at a time. Just a reminder this podcast deals with adult content, so if you don’t have total privacy, you might want to put on your headphones. Today the letter is I and I is for Intimacy.
Intimacy is defined as a close familiarity, deeply knowing another person.
Emotional intimacy is built by getting to know someone deeply – sharing confidences. Physical intimacy includes many forms of sexual contact.
Joining me today is Georgia Rose, found of G’s Spot – her digital platrom that is devoted to female sexual pleasure and sensuality. She says she has ‘launched this digital platform because it has profoundly affected me that beneath the projection of a progressive, educated and liberated society there lies the murky reality that female sexuality is still largely misunderstood, mystified and miscommunicated and I want to do something to change that.’ She has carried out her own survey on female sexual pleasure and over 500 people have completed it. She is using her data and her platform to open up conversations about female sexuality that place the female body and experience at the core.
Georgia spoke about starting with the self for developing intimacy.
I highlighted the fact that we cannot be ‘vulnerable to ourselves’ because becoming vulnerability is about showing your true self, letting down your barriers. We can increase our authenticity and we can become more honest with ourselves.
We spoke about the importance of education in becoming intimate and that communication s the key to intimacy. We covered getting to know someone in person – going through different types of experiences together – increasing intimacy.
We looked at how differently intimacy is perceived now as to 30 years ago.
Georgia postulated that the sexual revolution that is happening now is different from the ones in the 1960’s, 70’s etc because back then the revolution was lead by and almost restricted to white middle class people. I challenged that belief and also pointed out that currently it is still be lead by people who are middle class – people who have enough money to meet all their needs and extra time.
We spoke about how to increase intimacy.
