Sex Without Intimacy and Intimacy Without Sex

Sex Without Intimacy and Intimacy Without Sex

Excerpt From The Relationship Handbook: How to Understand and Improve Every Relationship in Your Life by Kevin B. Burk
We no longer feel the social pressure to confine sex to committed relationships. In fact, we’re free to explore our sexuality with just about anyone we like. Sex is now an accepted recreational activity. What we often don’t realize, however, is that even casual, recreational sex still involves intimacy. We may have overcome our fear and shame about sex, but many of us still have issues regarding intimacy. If we experience more intimacy than we can handle, we will feel threatened; our safety checklist will be triggered. No matter how “safe” we make sex, sex may not be safe to us.
When we experience an orgasm, we reveal ourselves more completely and more honestly than at any other time. We let our egos die for a moment, and we have the chance to experience a true connection with another person. Then the ego comes back into the picture, and we’re hit with the fear of separation, and all of our old patterns. If we don’t have enough trust or enough safety, we will feel threatened, guilty, and generally unsafe. No matter how much society’s beliefs about sex have evolved in our lifetime, our core conditioning tells us that there’s no such thing as no-strings sex. We still equate sex with love, and love with commitment. And we equate love and commitment with vulnerability, responsibility, and the fear that our needs will not be met.
Sex is very easy to come by in today’s society. What most of us crave, however, is not sex, but intimacy. The challenge is that the only model most of us have for expressing or experiencing intimacy is sex. Intimacy requires trust, and trust takes time. It’s very difficult to experience true intimacy through casual sex.
The level of intimacy we experience through sex can be threatening to many of us, particularly if the sex occurs early in the relationship. Safety is essential in the early stages of a relationship—even the smallest safety violation can mark the end of a budding romance. As we get to know our partners over time, we create a foundation of trust and familiarity. We can keep minor safety violations in perspective. This is not the case when we have truly casual sex with someone.
When we become sexual with a person we’ve just met, even the smallest safety violation will be enough to stop our getting to know each other. One of the challenges is that it’s not usually appropriate or possible to have a Relationship Definition Talk with a person we’ve known less than six hours. There is no real relationship to discuss. While we both may have wanted to pursue a romantic relationship before we had sex, we often find we’re less interested the next morning, because we feel unsafe. We experienced too much intimacy too quickly, and we need to create some distance, some space, and to put up some walls so that we can recover. These walls, however, block the emotional and spiritual connections we experienced that made us want to get to know each other in the first place. Since we don’t really know our partner, we wonder if there was ever a genuine connection between us. We often end up with the awkward “morning after” where one of us promises to call the other, an!
d neither of us believes the phone will actually ring.
Two popular television shows demonstrate our current approaches to sex without intimacy and intimacy without sex.
SEX WITHOUT INTIMACY: “SEX AND THE CITY”
HBO’s television series, “Sex and the City,” follows the loves and lives of four single women living in New York City.
The show has become a cultural touchstone because it explores sexuality from the woman’s point of view in frank, funny, and honest ways. The four main characters are smart, independent, decent, professional, attractive women. They each have a different approach to sex, love and relationships, and between them they cover a broad spectrum of expectations and attitudes towards sex. The main characters have become so much a part of popular culture that many women use them as reference points to describe their own patterns and feelings about sex. So do many gay men.
For those of you not familiar with the series (and even for those of us who are), I’ll provide a brief description of each of the main characters to illustrate their attitudes towards sex.
SAMANTHA
Samantha Jones takes the most stereotypically male approach to sex. She truly enjoys sex, and for the most part, she’s content to have a healthy sex life with multiple partners. She has no guilt or shame associated with sex. Sex for Samantha does not require any kind of emotional commitment, nor does it imply any kind of relationship. She enjoys sex for the sake of sex. Samantha is largely self-sufficient, and is able to meet her validation needs through her close friendships. Although Samantha had three significant romantic relationships during the run of the show (including a lesbian relationship), she has never set out to find a relationship.
CARRIE
Carrie Bradshaw has a healthy appreciation for casual sex as well. Carrie, however, is looking for something more than just sex—she is looking for a relationship. While Carrie is less likely than Samantha to simply hook up with an attractive stranger, she doesn’t need to feel like she’s in a committed relationship before she will have sex. Sex is a part of casual dating for Carrie.
MIRANDA
Miranda Hobbes is more interested in finding a romantic relationship than she admits. For Miranda, sex is more than just sex—it implies some kind of commitment, and requires some kind of emotional connection. The few times Miranda has indulged in strictly casual sex, she’s been disappointed. Miranda needs to feel that sex is a part of a relationship—and she has, in the past, used sex as a way to try to initiate a relationship. Once she has sex with someone, she immediately begins to see him as a potential long-term romantic partner.
CHARLOTTE
If Samantha is the most stereotypically masculine in her approach to sex, Charlotte York is the most stereotypically feminine. Although she doesn’t like to admit it, Charlotte is uncomfortable with the idea of casual sex. For Charlotte, sex should only be part of a committed relationship. Charlotte sets the most boundaries with respect to her sex life—how far she’s willing to go sexually has a direct relation to how strong a commitment she receives from her partner. Of course this did backfire on her—she made her first husband wait until they were married before she would have sex with him, and then discovered that he couldn’t.
INTIMACY WITHOUT SEX: “WILL & GRACE”
“Sex and the City” mainly focuses on sex. If we want to find a model for an intimate relationship, we have to look to another popular television show: “Will & Grace.” Will Truman and Grace Adler share a tremendous amount of love, trust and intimacy in their relationship. They validate and support each other, and they share the kind of emotional connections that most of us truly crave in our lives. Ironically, the only reason that they manage to do this is that sex can never be a part of their relationship, since Will is gay. Women and gay men have always shared a special bond. In many ways, relationships between women and gay men are the only ones where we can experience true intimacy without involving sex.
But sex and intimacy are still connected. The more intimate we become with someone, the more important it will be that we are able to express that intimacy through sex. Our objective in our romantic relationships is to feel loved. Ultimately, love involves a balance of sex and intimacy. But for many of us, the choice seems to be either having intimacy without sex, or sex without intimacy. We’ve all but forgotten how to combine the two.

Mainstream Dating or Adult?

Mainstream Dating or Adult?

It depends what your looking for but in general both sites will have something on offer. At the adult sites you can expect to find sex and erotic fantasy, lots of gay, lesbian and bisexual type members as well as swinger couples. At the mainstream sites you can expect to find sex and relationship types. It is less common to find a serious relationship on a full blown adult site but we do see some people looking…

The point is there is cross over from one to the other, I’ve seen women looking for relationships – long term type on adult sites and I just think no way your in the wrong place. Your going to get hammered with replies from guys who are just after a casuald fling every time so you must be kidding yourself. In contrast you do see quite a few girls advertise for guys and making a point of “not looking for anything serious or long term” It’s not uncommon.

The other shift we are seeing is the community nature of the sites coming into play, more and more people are using a website as a hangout rather than getting out to a regualr venue. Not sure how healthy this is but it is happening and as the new generation comes through it will only become more common. We may see a further fragmentation of the “dating industry” into niche groups of people with like minded interests.

So the question is pretty easy to answer – the adult site is going to be more of an adventure ride and the mainstream sites are more community contact find true love and romance. At the end of the day it is yoru choice as long as you go in knowing what to expect from each site. One thing is for sure your going to find lots of grey areas in between.

How to choose a Gay Dating Site

Not all the Gay sites that now proliferate on the internet are well put together and you cannot always rely on them for a pleasant experience! Whilst all the Gay dating sites will clearly not be the same we should consider some basic requirements.
Gay dating sites differ in many aspects including the facilities they provide, the demographics they cater for, the way they allow contact between the members, membership fee, the option of matchmaking and many other aspects. You can choose the best Gay dating site for you by considering these areas to ensure that they meet your requirements.
If you are interested in meeting potential gay partners of a particular age, race or creed then you can look for those sites that have the selective search facility. Many of the sites simply put a list of other people looking for someone, which can create some problems in getting started. However, there are sites available through which you can search using pre-defined criteria. This kind of facility increases the efficiency of the whole process and generally these sorts of sites will attract more people and therefore increase the possibility of finding someone from those who register with them.
Another factor that is important when choosing when deciding which site to use is the nature of and extent to which contact is allowed between the members. Of course it entirely depends on how you want to deal with this issue. There are sites that strictly safeguard personal information like telephone numbers and addresses. However, there are sites that have the facility of private chat rooms that allow sharing of personal details when you feel comfortable doing so. Clearly choosing a site that allows intimate contact may work in your favour as well as against you. The restrictions placed on contact are put in place as a safety measure and it may sometimes restrict your access if you really want to make contact with a potential partner. You should carefully consider the different options available to you before you register yourself with a site to ensure that you are completely happy with the way the site operates.
There are others features that are equally important in choosing a Gay dating site. There can be hundreds if not thousands of profiles available on a gay dating site and it can be tiresome to work your way through them to find a match for yourself. However, some sites offer matchmaking facilities through which you get qualified gay prospects that match with your specific profile. This saves your time and you can get on with the business of meeting potential partners as soon as possible. It is important to analyze the kind of profiles that are displayed on a site before you register. It is important because some sites have pictures enticing you to join the site and then you find that none of the people really exist!
Most importantly, you will want to choose a gay dating site that is user friendly. Some sites are difficult to work with whereas some gay dating sites are smooth platforms which enable you to easily interact and chat with others. Additional features like dating tips and articles can increase the value of the site and many people (especially new users) prefer these kinds of sites. If the sites allow a trial period then using them before paying for it is preferable. For a perfect gay online dating experience it is essential to find a gay dating site that meets your needs!

Homosexual Dating – Truth and Connection

Homosexual Dating – Truth and Connection

Homosexual dating has become much more widespread and accepted in Western culture, allowing both gays and lesbians the chance to reach out to one another beyond that of closed doors. Now there are many ways you can have a rewarding homosexual dating experience, so don’t be afraid to get out there and explore all of the potential relationships you can create at a wonderful same-sex communities.

Homosexuality is a form of love that needs not to be judged or explained, because it is just another example of how when you love someone it doesn’t matter what colour their skin is, how old they are, or even what sex they are. True love knows no boundaries, has no discriminations and only wishes to be shared with another who returns the same emotions.

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with this idea of love, and due to this fact, many homosexuals, regardless if they are male or female, are made to feel alienated, which can often lead to feelings of depression or loneliness. There is no reason why you should let these feelings overcome you, or let other opinions of those you care about, such as family members or friends, negatively influence your life when it comes to finding love, relationships, and homosexual dating.

Homosexual dating is about finding someone who feels the same way you do, enjoys spending time with you, treats you with respect and makes you feel like an equal. It is about being apart of a relationship with mutual understanding, which has the potential to forge a strong connection between both you and your partner.

Like any dating experience, there will be certain setbacks and struggles that you may face during homosexual dating. This is only natural, simply because in order for you to connect with someone, it is important that you feel comfortable with them.

As a gay or lesbian, you should not feel that you need to grab any opportunity that comes your way. There is no harm in starting as friends and working slowly into the relationship to discover how much you have in common. As long as you are honest with your feelings, you should have no problem finding a partner.

Homosexual dating is how you can establish an amazing connection with someone who understands you, and loves you for who you are with no questions asked. Even though you will meet some people who are destined to give you a hard time with your sexual preference, all you can do is trust your own judgments, be true to yourself, and give your love and time to those who deserve it.

Will Brokeback Mountain Bring New Jeans Fashion Awareness For Gay Jeans?

Will Brokeback Mountain Bring New Jeans Fashion Awareness For Gay Jeans?

You have heard about the epic love story set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two young men – a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy – who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.
Now a friend did just ask me “don’t you think that after this movie some new craze of new jeans fashion will come up? ” – I had to laugh, because I usually don’t follow fashion trends but am usually ahead of them.
And then I actually had to really laugh, because I asked him how a typical “gay jeans” would look. It was hilarious. Me being bisexual and usually really thinking I have “seen it all”, I wondered what kind of style of jeans would qualify. No certainly not some pinkish-yelling ones.
Actually funny enough, I bought just last week (before I wrote this article) at one of the more and more popular ZARA clothing stores, a cool new vintage looking pair of denim zara jeans. And… that store it sometimes an absolute gay madhouse, meaning, so many gay men and guys are hunting there for the latest fashion styles, that don’t cost an arm and leg (and, yes while buying their new jeans picking up some date in a store is convenient, too! )
Then, it hit me. Of course there is a gay jeans! Actually there is most often a VERY easy way to tell if someone is actually straight or not. At least it was like that the last 20 years: the tightness of a jeans usually tells a lot about a guy wearing it.
Straight men tend to buy rather baggy and never really tight jeans as in “tight-so-you-can-see-my-bubble-butt”-tight.
So usually the way a guy walks in combination of the tightness of their jeans gives you a pretty good hint. But then, these days with all this talk about “metrosexuals”, good looking and style aware straight guys that might be mistaken as gay. Hmmmm….
Well, I really do not know for sure, but that was the only thing that came to mind when I was joking around with how “gay jeans” would look like…
And at the end of the conversation I actually told my friend, that no matter what, as an internet marketer who actually runs a jeans website, I found the whole idea that a new gay movie about the romances with two cowboys might indeed influence will people’s taste and might develop some new fashion styles.
After all, “gay” also still means “happy”, and a good fitting jeans makes you usually indeed quite happy. At least me, when I look at some good fitting guy (or girl, for the record! ) in them.

Interracial Relationship – Dating Outside One’s Culture Without Betraying One’s Roots

Interracial Relationship – Dating Outside One’s Culture Without Betraying One’s Roots

The public’s outlook on socially and culturally sensitive issues is changing with every passing day. From 1967’s legalization of interracial marriages to current trends of legalizing gay marriages, it is apparent that, given time, society learns to accept change. Interracial dating and romance is no longer uncommon and is becoming well established throughout North American society. The individuals within these relationships are generally comfortable with the knowledge that they can both maintain their own culture as well as introduce themselves to another. These couples do not feel that they are betraying their roots by learning new customs. In fact, in most cases it is the parents that pressure their children into not abandoning their culture and thus to avoid dating those of different ethnicities. When it deals with other people, it appears that most individuals are willing to accept multicultural dating, but those same individuals are against it when it jeopardizes their own customs and beliefs.

Many parents are worried that mixed raced dating will somehow dilute their own culture and will threaten the preservation of their cultural beliefs. They feel that in order to control the weakening of their cultural bonds, they must restrict the actions of their children i.e. prevent them from dating outside of their culture. Parents worry that if their child falls in love with someone of a different culture, they might sacrifice their own traditions in order to make the relationship work. Technically, it is up to their children to make these decisions. Realistically, the parents have the power to decide. Many children who go against their parent’s will are punished with disapproval and even worse, alienation.

For couples in multicultural relationships, compromise is sometimes the best way to bridge the gap between the varying traditions. Choosing the most important traditions from each culture, while making sure to include the parents’ opinions, will allow the partners and their parents to feel equally significant. The parents may never be completely happy with the choices their child has made, but at least they won’t feel as thought that family roots have been betrayed.

People of different cultural backgrounds are not impervious to learning new customs and traditions. New partners may readily accept the challenge of engaging in the practices of different cultural groups. A person’s roots are not left behind simply because they are exposed to new customs. Cultural and familial roots make us who we are, and that can never be t

Gay dating has been scrutinized for many years, and in history it has been known that men who were openly gay were not only abused but some were even killed. Gay dating has been a controversy for many, many years but as of lately people have come to realise that there is nothing wrong with gay dating. Gay men are as natural as a straight couple. There is no difference, they love each other the same, the commitment issues are still the same and the only thing different is that they are of the same sex.
Gay men are everywhere; they can be your next door neighbour or the admin guy at your work. They are the same as any other person and should not be criticised just because of their sexual nature. In today’s world we can land on the moon, we can trace people back to the dawn of time and we can tell who someone is from a tiny spot of blood so why is their still prejudice towards gay couples?
However, recent changes in law and governments have shows that the prejudice towards gay people is receding, and about time too. New laws in the United Kingdom have allowed gay couples to be married, known as a civil partnership, following in the steps of other countries such as Canada, Netherlands and Spain.
Gay dating has come a long way from its dark history. People are now openly gay and it’s not just people like you and me, Elton John is openly gay and has just been through a civil partnership to his partner in full view of the media. Gay exposure does wonders for the cause. It opens up the world in a new light to others to let them see that there is nothing wrong with a gay couple. That they live normal day to day lives and feel the same as every other couple does. People have only now just started to realize life is no longer greener on the other side! They realize there is online gay club, gay personals, lesbian dating at www.onlinegayclub.com where they can be themselves.

The Essential Gay Dating Tips

The Essential Gay Dating Tips

Whether you are gay, bisexual or bi-curious, finding that perfect date can be a daunting task, especially if you are stepping out for the first time. How should you dress? Where should you go? What should you say or not to say? One thing is for sure, remember to be yourself and be relaxed. Below are a series of gay dating tips aimed at helping you make that date a real success.

The top gay dating tips:

1. Location, location, location! Choosing a meeting place is extremely important. Agree to meet at a place that is neutral, not too far from your dwellings and be familiar with the area. You would want to also choose a place that is not too noisy or rowdy, more like a quiet bar where you can both communicate and be heard effectively.

2. Concentrate my dear! Dating can always be extremely tense and nerve racking, especially if you are the quiet or shy type. One point to remember is to listen carefully to what your date has to say, this will enable you to relate and connect more easily.

3. A little bit of give and take: Share the conversation, ask as many questions as you like, feel free to talk about yourself, but also be courteous and listen to what the other person has to say.

4. What was in the past is better left in the past: Do not dwell in the past and absolutely refrain from mentioning your past relationships and negative experiences. Remember, every first date is a new beginning and should be treated like one. So, feel confident and be optimistic, stick to the present and the future. Show your date that his time is now and that you have no left over baggage.

5. Radiate: Show your inner glow and be positive. There is nothing like a positive and optimistic person. It shows a good level of confidence, which is definitely attractive in many people’s eyes. Bury your negative thoughts and think positive.

6. To hump or not to hump? It has been proven time and time again that one night stands or “hi how are you, let’s have sex” encounters do not last the test of time or more than 24 hours for that matter. If that is what you are seeking, fine, but just play it SAFE, otherwise you may want to concentrate further on the conversation and leave sex for another time. This will show that you are genuinely interested in your date and wish to take matters further.

7. Easy come, easy go: There is no need to rush the situation. Take your time, give yourself and the other person time to breath and discover how you truly feel about each other. It is not advisable to become too serious too quickly at an early stage in the dating process. This might easily scare off the other person who may not feel ready for a relationship or commitment.

8. Honesty shall set you free: There is no point in beating around the bush. Be true to yourself and your feelings towards this person. If you feel you are not getting the attention you deserve, let yourself be heard. If your interest is not reciprocated, direct your attention on somebody that will appreciated it. Like wise, if you grow dissatisfied or lose interest in the person, let it be known.

9. R.E.S.P.E.C.T: One of the most important gay dating tips is to treat the other person with the same level of respect as you feel you deserve. There is no point in wasting time and playing games, return their phone calls and speak to them. If you are not interested, have the decency of letting the person know rather than taking them on a roller coaster ride of uncertainty.

Meeting someone new is never easy, let alone dating them. We hope these gay dating tips have given you a valuable insight into etiquettes involved with dating. We wish you the very best of luck and hope that you keep these gay dating tips in mind.
