THE FREQUENCY OF INTIMACY

There is one more thing I would like to say about sex and relationships. I feel and fear that the world has become so complex and demanding that younger people do not have time to enjoy their passions to the fullest. I think it gets relegated to much less frequency than is healthy or desirable. By younger I mean those in their late 30's and early 40's. The teens are doing just fine in this regard. Too fine, if you ask me!

Think about it. Sex is pleasure. It is loving. It is stress reducing and it is free. It burns calories. It churns positive feelings. It feels good. It contributes to the beautiful flowers that grow in your garden of love. It is not everything, but it is something important.

What other activity has so many benefits and so few costs? What other activity is so talked about,joked about and often is not that frequently enjoyed. Obviously, there is no "right" number. But, hopefully, if you are in a relationship your response to "when was the last time you were intimate?" is not months/years ago. If it is there is likely a problem or many that need to be addressed. Don't ignore the symptoms. Use them to enter relationship rehab.

Serious problems in relationships usually don't go away on their own. In fact, they multiply and get worse.

The keys to a healthy relationship lie in open, adult to adult communications,making partnerly decisions together, fun and laughter together,enjoyable family times and love-making. Be sure to include them all in reasonable balance.

Bye For Now,

Bill
