I can't help but think about that extremely beautiful virgin who shared David's bed in his old age, and did not have sex with him.

(duh, those were pre-Viagra days)

That little arrangement, plus some improper political ambition, cost a man his life.

ETA The woman's name was Abishag.

Somebody is making a living out of the blinking obvious! :perplexed:

The biggest enemy in relationships is the idea that every touch and close cuddle must lead to the final act. . *you know* :P

Women have for millenia said openly that a nice cuddle is a healthy thing and men have made jokes about it for just as long.

It is considered 'unmanly' to engage in cuddles that lead nowhere else . . so the result is that many men only come to bed if they think they are "with a chance tonight" . and if not . .the football or other late night TV event will fill a poor second place.

If any woman is faced with the prospect of 'all the way' at every touch then watch them pull away fast. A small cuddle leads to a whisper in her ear about what she can expect later and becomes a reason to defer any lightweight physical contact lest she be put in the position of 'NO' woman. It is a touchy subject and if everything has failed . .it is time to rebuild from scratch . .have a set time for cuddles alone . . that is what this woman is getting paid to teach. What a topsy turvey world we live in where this is even an issue. Sad really. :(

I agree Jan. I'm dying for just a cuddle. That video brought tears to my eyes. You described my husband....he's a non-believer though. And soooo transparent.

He's nice when he wants something.

I was trying to "quote" like you all. Hmmmmm. Just say'n that you described my husband, Jan. He's soooo transparent. He's nice when he wants "something." He's a non-believer, though. Dying for just a cuddle here!

(oh for crying out loud.) Please forgive my technophobia! haha.

I take care of the handicapped and mentally challenged. I also have a brother who is mentally challenged. They, the girls I care for and my brother, are starved for physical affection. My parents would never allow anyone to be affectionate with my brother or allow him to show affection. They believed that it would bring out bad tendency's in him. Now that they are gone and I have the responsibility to care for him, he gets hugs and lots of affection. He needs to be checked every once in a while, because he gets a little too touchy around non-family members and expects the same affection from them, but I believe it is because he has never been shown the proper way to be affectionate. He is 56, what a shame.

The girls I care for are also starved for love and affection. One of them is 57 and was abandoned as a child. She was afraid to be touched for a long time, not sure why, but I can imagine as she had been living in a institution for much of her life. I have been caring for her for around 10 years. This year she has become very affectionate to me, big hugs every morning and before she goes to bed. Before she would scream if anyone even touched her by accident. She was very sad and depressed and now she is such a happy woman. A joy to care for.

My other girl has family, but she is so hungry for love it is sad to see. We have a hug session every morning and night before bed. She is responding and has started to behave herself so much better now. When I first started with her, she would write her address and telephone number on scraps of paper, to hand out to men she would meet during the day. Very dangerous for her. But now he doesn't feel the need to do that. I believe that physical attention in the form of hugs and just a hand on someones shoulder is very important.

I am not, as a rule, a real touchy, cuddly person, but I have learned from my experiences with these special people, how important this is, and this knowledge has also improved my relationship with Grumpy. He loves to hug.:grouphug:

Your brother and the two girls you care for are sooooo fortunate to have you in their lives' date=' Vernalee. The best things in life are free someone once said![/quote'] Thank you Shari, I ache for the treatment of these poor souls. My brother has endured so many years of verbal abuse and yet it amazes me how good he has turned out. On a side note: One of my girls requested a BS and is responding so good. Her behavior has improved so much and it has only been a couple of weeks. Because I work with her, I couldn't be the one to study with her, conflict of interest, too much influence etc, so I called a sister who was willing to do it. Time will tell how well she will do, but she has been witnessing to her coach and family and this week made a stand on not celebrating her room mates birthday.
