• Sex Positive Therapy for Intimacy Issues

    When looking for a committed relationship, most people (exceptions noted) are not only looking for company or someone to do things with. Most people look for that magical relationship because they want real, true intimacy in their life. But what is intimacy, really?

    Intimacy is NOT the same thing as sex. You can have sex without intimacy. You can have intimacy without sex. BUT, having intimate sex makes for a pretty magical experience.

    Intimacy is TRUE and genuine closeness with another human being. It is a connection that is developed over time. While intimacy brings unparalleled joy into our lives, it can also feel incredibly frightening and vulnerable to some people. Because, to be intimate means to open yourself up to another human being. It means showing up, flaws and all, and putting in the work.

    Ultimately, intimacy is a wonderful byproduct of an emotional connection that has been built over time by two individuals who deeply love and respect each other.

    What Does Fear of Intimacy Look Like?

    While many people struggle with a fear of intimacy, not everyone knows the signs and symptoms, as they can be mistaken for other emotions.
    People who fear intimacy often have low self-esteem and trust issues. They may experience episodes of anger from time to time and have a history of toxic relationships. Many avoid physical contact and are unable to easily share their feelings or express emotions.

    How Therapy Can Help

    There are a variety of reasons a person may experience fear of intimacy. From childhood trauma to low self-worth and fear of rejection, people from all walks of life, all ages, and all backgrounds can develop a fear of getting close to another person.

    If you believe you have a fear of intimacy, sex positive therapy is a powerful tool that can help you work through any underlying causes. Sex Therapy is not only about sex, it’s about intimacy and relationship.

    A therapist can help you identify the root of your struggles and help you weed it out. They can also help you heal from any past traumas so you can start getting close and connect with others.

    The bottom line is, intimacy is a wonderful part of life. Don’t let fear get in the way of you experiencing true intimacy.
