Marriage and Doesn't Anybody Blush Anymore?
Everything in nature has its Borders, so does marriage.
Open vs shallow. A relationship can't afford to be shallow.
Broadcasting sexual energy
Adam and Eve ashamed that they didn’t protect and preserve their sexual energy, not because it was a bad thing
What modesty means? The purpose is to enhance sexual energy
"Modesty is a focused surrender"

Difference between Sex and Intimacy
Sex is a performance. Intimacy means just us with no barriers. In order to have no barriers, you need to have borders.
"If there are no borders and you're allowing yourself to be spontaneous, you’re actually being reckless"

We want to put our free choice to good use
God gives us the parameters, the rules of the game, and we will use our free choice to play the game well.
Joy of Intimacy and feeling alone
The purpose is to become one

No sound. Hear Nothing. No talking. All attention on the person.
Sex leaves you feeling alone, not bonded. And it leaves you feeling a little reduced.
Intimacy leaves you feeling more innocent
Having separate beds.
Intimacy is not a subject, it’s life
