Well I didn't really know how to answer. The first part made it seem like intimacy was about closeness and I would consider cuddling and kisses and hugs and stuff intimacy of that kind. I don't consider those things foreplay though, which is what the second part asked for. So, I answered every day because we "make out" every day with some hugging and kissing and we cuddle with each other daily but it doesn't always progress to more than that because well..we have kids and we each have full time jobs and sometimes at the end of the day we have no energy/time left for sex. So, if we're talking sex wise then I'd say about 3x a week.
I figured she was just talking about getting it on, Alicia!
Intimacy is a 10 or 20 time a day thing, for us. Not all intimacy leads to sex. About 20 minutes ago, he came in from painting and I just stood on a chair (he's a lot taller than I am) and rubbed his head and his neck. No sex, just plain intimacy. I guess I didn't read the first post that closely.
You're right, though, intimacy, especially if you and your partner live together, is not always going to immediately lead to sex.
Alicia, I remember when our kids were small, it's hard to get more than a good 2 to 4 sessions a week in. It will get more frequent when the kids get older and are not around as much and don't need you for every little thing. (One of my favorites, you think you and your man are in bed for the night, the kids are tucked in, you start and hear from the bathroom, "Mama, can you wipe me?!?!?!?!?" OMG, what a mood breaker!)
