Touch and emotional connection are two of the simplest and most profound ways of experiencing wholeness Babies and adults thrive on them. In fact, babies can’t be healthy without being held and touched a lot.
As a man who wants deep connection with other men (whether you consider yourself gay, bisexual or something else) you are just as impacted by the joy and pleasure of nurturing touch and emotional connection.
Touch and connection are lost arts
If you’re like most men in our society, the only type of touch you’re getting regularly is a handshake in the boardroom or sex in the bedroom. You might not actually work in a boardroom and you may even have sex in places other than a bedroom, but the impact is the same.
Similarly, satisfying emotional connection can be hit or miss.
What’s so often lacking in these exchanges is a heartfelt, connected masculine sensuality.
If you’re in a partnered relationship where the spark is alive, conflict is minimal and time pressures are within reason, you’re probably getting more touch and connection than most men. You may still find other sensual connections enrich your life and relationship.
As profound as connection can be it’s actually quite simple. Touch combined with nonjudgmental focused attention while being present in the moment feels transformative. And, it is.
It can change the world.
You can even touch and be touched without being physically present. The same principles that make physical touch juicy and satisfying, can bring depth and meaning to your presence with others even when you connect by phone or online communication.
As a gay or bisexual man interested in men, you know that sex is powerful and you suspect that erotic energy can be used to promote healing and wellbeing. You’d like to have more nurturing touch in your life, along with more emotionally satisfying masculine connection and erotic fulfillment.
