    Haven't had sex with my husband in ten months and I am freaking out

    *waves hello* I'm new here. I wanted to get some advice. My hubby is most likely on the spectrum. He's never been formally diagnosed, but he has all of the symptoms.

    Craving touch but afraid of intimacy. Your thoughts?

    Hi all, I have looked around the forums for a few days and there is something I noticed. Many people here don’t like to be touched, apart from people they know well. For me, it’s the other way around. I like being touched when a connection to me is not the point of the action. Things like...

    Obtaining greater intimacy in our relationships

    I think this article has some good points. I disagree with them regarding their fidelity beliefs, but other than that I found it helpful. Does anyone else have anything to add about intimacy? I want to focus on being closer to others. I am not in a relationship and probably won’t be this late in...

    Intimacy sucks. Help.

    My boyfriend and I are doing great and we love each other to death but he wants intimacy physically and I don't. I'm also asexual (not sexually attracted to anyone) and refuse to have sex because it doesn't appeal to me and I hate it. I also don't like too much skin touching, and he wants to...
