TOUCH








As human beings we have a need for the human touch.  To be held, to hold, to kiss, to fuck.  We are made in such a way that we function best when we have that need fulfilled.  It's basic and primal.  When we don't have it our bodies feel the need and somewhere we register that something's wrong.  The internet is a poor substitute for the real thing.  A video or a photograph only satisfies so much and for so long.  Our cells crave it.  Reach out today if you have a loved one and just touch them non sexually at first and let your body register how it feels.  Hug someone today and let your body register the warmth, the feel of their body and how good it feels to make contact with another human being.  It's good for your soul.

interesting way to look at it though one can overcome the craving to be touch if one is denied it long enough

Becca, It's been a long dry spell for me too, but don't give up hope. You're not overcoming, you're just denying your need.

The problem is getting them to hug you back.

I saw a documentary in college about a child who's parents refused to bond with him. He never grew, didn't gain weight, failed to develop normally in any way. He was ultimately taken from them and a team of nurses introduced him to touch slowly. He began by being terrified..but oh so slowly...began to welcome touch again. He started to grow, learned to vocalize..the film ended before we learned his ultimate fate. I've never forgotten that...Touch is essential for life

I wish it were a dry spell sweetie but hubby and I have been married 20yrs i'd say it's more like loss of interest or maybe buyer's regret he may be rethinking his choices but it's life right we put on out boots and keep walking. xo
