I’m trying something a bit different with this ask the readers question, it’s a word pair. Where one word is often interchanged with the other, but the words usually have different meanings.
Such as this post’s word pair – intimacy and sex.
I run across the different meanings of these two words often while counseling couples. So I’m throwing them out to you my loyal readers.
What’s the difference between intimacy and sex?
I look forward to your thoughts in the comments.
