Is Our Deepest, Deepest Desire Sex?

Is our deepest deepest desire sex or do we simply not have the language, the confidence in communication, or the courage to be vulnerable to ask for what we truly need?

When we so easily ask for, initiate or move into the act of sex … are we in truth desiring the simplicity of touch?  Do we long to be held? known?  Or seen in our nakedness?

Do we desire the delicacy of intimacy or is our deepest deepest desire sex?

I feel that our deepest deepest desire as a human is to be known, is to be truly seen, is to be touched, is a longing for intimacy.
But we do not know how to ask for these things.

We may not have the language to ask for what we want, or if we do we do not know how to communicate them to another.
We may feel awkward for asking for what we need, for touch, for intimacy … just to be held. Or lack the courage to appear,, so vulnerable.

We may not truly understand what intimacy is.

We may not know how to allow ourselves to be touched, to be intimate, to be seen, as we may placed around ourselves our own barriers.

And so the easiest way to get some form, some taste of what we are desire is to ask for, or to initiate or to move into the act of Sex.

But is our deepest deepest desire sex?

Or is our deepest deepest desire to be intimate, to be touched, to be held, to be known and to be seen.
