I am fully aware that not everyone likes touch and that others may relate it to awful experiences and so not enjoy it but if we enjoy playful consensual touch and play in friendships and romantic relationships why should it have to end in childhood i feel if it I had had  more of such touch i would be more body confident today and like my body as it is

    Hi @pattern1991 We search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the universe , deserve your love and affection. You should always value yourself. Touch (consensual) can make us come alive and give our lives meaning.

    I know that everyone keeps on about the 3ft rule but i also know for a fact that loads of my friends including street people still enjoy coming up for a hug in the middle of town infull view of whoever else is passing bye if they have not seen me for awhile
    so if you enjoy go right ahead don't let other people's look's stop you because they might want to join in
