Transcript There was universal agreement on one point of the Hite study on female sexuality: all of the women expressed a desire for more touching and body contact in ail relationships. While lesbians may find more total fulfillment in our sexual relationships, we are just as restricted as all other women when it comes to physical expressions of affection in non-lover encounters. Hugging and kissing in greeting and on departure are permitted. And all of us have a few friends that it is "safe" to be affectionate with. Beyond that, we are expected to confine our touching and expressions of caring to our lover. If, in the midst of conversation, someone says something that provokes a feeling of tenderness, we resist the impulse to put our arms around her, for fear the gesture may be misinterpreted. We avoid kissing women on the mouth for the same reason, even though the kiss we want to give may be soft, light and non-sexual. If we do feel free to stroke the back or arm of the person standing near us, we will somehow manage to put an impersonal look upon our face and give an air of detachment to the act of touching. We dare not register enjoyment. How often do we deny ourselves the pleasure of nuzzling our face against the cheek and throat of another woman? Or of holding someone closely against us for a long, quiet moment simply because it feels good? We are warm, caring women, and touching is a super way to communicate. Yet, we deprive ourselves of a large slice of woman warmth simply because we are conditioned to think physical contact shouldn't be enjoyed unless it is going to lead to genital contact. We seek diversity in the foods we eat, in our social entertainment, in the work we do. Why not recognize our need for diversity in physical contacts with others as well? Touching is the best way I know to say: "I care about you." Don't you think it's time to reach through the social barriers and touch someone you like? - Phyllis Yarnold puiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiuiiiimiiiimiiiiiiiHiiinimiiiiimii RELATIONSHIPS AND SEXUALITY COUNSELING FOR LESBIANS WITH KRIS HALSTEAD A special group for lesbians interested in exploring and working on personal growth, relationships and sexuality will begin end of January OPEN! *° individuals and/or couples PLACE : 4111 Martinshire FEE! negotiable CALL: Kris Halstead, 661-7042 for more information Ms. Halstead has had training at the Center for the Study of the Person, Esalen Institute and National Sex Forum and has a faculty appointment with the Dept. of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine.
