Ever since you were a baby, you've felt the secret.
It's not hard to understand or figure out. It's simple and it's been right under our noses this entire time.
The secret to intimacy is Body Heat.
Many years ago I used to volunteer at preschools and elementary schools. I remember this one particular incident.
One of the little girls fell to the ground as she was sprinting back from recess.
The teacher ran up to her worried, helped the child up and hugged her.
"Are you okay?" The teacher asked the girl. "Yeah, I'm okay".
Then the little girl started crying.
"Oh my gosh what's wrong?" The teacher started hugging her again.
Later when I spoke to the teacher I asked her what happened.
She said that the girl was crying because, her own mother doesn't even hug her
There's something about sharing body heat that makes a moment intimate.
I say body heat and not touch because a punch to the face is very different from a hug.
(Cold touch is off-putting and typically avoided as well.)
Although sharing body heat doesn't have to be sexual., it's a fundamental closeness humans desire.
People who are intimate hug, cuddle, hold hands and all that gay shit.
Baby animals without their mothers present are stunted in their growth.
Kids whose parents don't hug them grow up mentally demented.
Think about it - What's more intimate than actual physical closeness?
If anything, you have to learn how it's not an intimate activity as you grow and partake in certain activities.
But as children, we inherently know this secret to intimacy. It's in our biology.
A baby who is held bonds via shared body heat. It cries to be held.
To share body heat is to form a union. It builds familiarity. It makes a person feel secure.
Hell, there's a reason long-distance relationships don't last. They lack intimate physical connection.
Remember this little secret and apply it when you can. Use it with family and loved ones.
Until Next Time,
