Figleaf: What is Intimacy?

One of the male sexuality bloggers I read, the erudite and wise Figlead, was inspired to reflect on what intimacy by his Valentine's Day reflections. Here's a snippet of his longer post, well worth reading:
"Now, romantic convention has it that sex is one of the most intimate acts between two people. I'm gonna say maybe it's the most vulnerable thing we can do, and maybe the most physical. But intimate? I say it's when you're head to head at a table for two. Sure, not just on Valentine's Day, and not even especially so. Breakfast the morning after is a good time too. Dates when you've gotten past the are-we-gonna-do-it stage too.
There are other genuinely intimate moments, of course. Long walks work wonders. Long drives together provide lots of opportunity of course. Murmering into the night after sex, or after sleeping in can be great too."
what is intimacy and where are you seeing great blog writing about it? have you written about what intimacy is to you?
post here and share, please.
