Intimacy doesn't have to be sexual.


Whether it's in a romantic relationship or a platonic friendship, the most meaningful moments of intimacy are the ones where you can let loose, feel safe, comfortable, and understood.

Redditor u/Annabelle_t got people to talking about their favorite non-sexual acts of intimacy, and people shared the details of their most personal and private moments.

"My wife and I slow dance almost every day. Whether it's just a few seconds or a full song or two. Just kind of our thing we do"

6. Deep talks

"Deep meaningful conversation. The kind where you share yourself with someone and feel truly understood. Hard to match the bliss of connection and emotional intimacy that comes from those moments of raw vulnerability with someone you love and feel safe with."

2. When someone plays with your hair...

"Lying down with my head on a girl friend's lap and she starts playing with my hair. Just moving her fingers through my hair is just sooooo good. There's something about it that I love and can't really explain

1. Being completely comfortable with each other

"Just comfortably being in each other's space in general. When everything about your body language and interactions says 'we have no reservations about casually touching each other and the normal social rules about personal space don't apply.'"
