    Maybe this is a stupid question, but what is the difference between “sex” and “sexual intimacy”? They are listed on two different levels on that pyramid.

    I don’t believe in stupid questions.

    Sex, I think, refers to the act of sex whereas intimacy would refer to the emotional connection. I was going to ask Beth, my ‘resident’ psych major, but she was in class. I’ll pass these comments onto her for her educated opinion. 🙂

    Michelle, I would agree with you and your definition of sex vs. sexual intimacy. Although, it may be a distinction that only women can discern. Ok, that may not be true, but there is some truth to it.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
