Touch & Relationships

"My first realization surprised me: we hadn't identified the real problem. The core problem was that we weren't realizing sexual fulfillment in our lives. That was the real problem, and if we could learn how to live a sexually fulfilled life, even if it looked different than before, the quality of our lives would improve dramatically." (Hubiak, S. 2012)
