Sexual Compatibility and Physical Intimacy:
What It Can Do For You As A Couple
Romantic relationships require sexual compatibility and physical intimacy. But then, physical intimacy for women is far different from what it means for men. Ironically though, both men and women need intimacy to form a strong and solid relationship.
What Intimacy Means for Women
When a woman is thinking about intimacy, she wants to start with the emotional aspect. Emotional intimacy greatly depends on trust. Frequently, it involves both the couple discussing their true emotions and feelings to better understand each other and offer a more dynamic and helpful mutual support.
To develop and maintain a good mental health, couples need this form of intimacy. For women, they need to have an emotional bond with their partner before they finally submit themselves to getting intimate physically and sexually. Normally, having an emotional attachment to a partner provides the physical intimacy a higher level that a single sex cannot easily achieve.
Intimacy for Men
For men, intimacy simply means physical intimacy. By getting physically intimate with their partner, men are more comfortable and they feel close to a woman all the more. However, it does not mean an emotional connection is lacking. For men, the more physically involved they are, the more they feel loved, provided that the relationship is not purely on sex alone, but rather, there is already an emotional connection between the couple. Generally, performing without feeling anything will not successfully meet the needs of a man on this particular level.
What is Physical Intimacy?
In general, physical intimacy is not just all about sex. Most women start with kissing, hugging, and any other forms and ways of physical intimacy prior to sex. Men and women practically need similar things, but what greatly differ is the methods and approaches. Although men are more looking for physical intimacy and women for emotional intimacy, both are needed to keep the romance burning with passion.
What Couples can do to Improve their Levels of Intimacy
For Men: Take time to talk or hold the hands, kiss, hug, and connect to your lady. When she says she is not in the mood, it does not mean to say that she is not interested. Spend time in doing things one step at a time. Don’t just walk up, greet her, and then start groping.
Why not start by asking how her day was? Let her know that you care about her feelings. Hold her hands, or put your arms around her while she is talking. Hug her and kiss her, without expecting much more. The moment she runs out of issues, she is ready for physical intimacy as you are. Keep in mind that discussing your feelings with your partner will help her in building trust between you, thus creating a strong emotional attachment.
For Women: If you are in a committed and a long-term relationship, be open about the fact that men need sex to keep them feel connected and secured to you. Refusing your partner for a physical intimacy is similar as slapping him in the face. But this does not necessarily mean that you do every moment he wants it. Instead, be open about telling him what is it that you need for you to be in the mood for getting intimate.
Sexual compatibility and physical intimacy are two important things in a relationship. The first thing to consider then, is to understand how you can meet each others needs to have a strong and long lasting partnership that you both will be happy and contented with.
