When you are emotionally close, it means you are vulnerable. You let your guard down and feel safe doing so. When you feel this kind of closeness, you can tell each other anything and feel accepted. You both can “feel” what the other person is feeling.
When you form a spiritual bond, you both understand each other’s spiritual quest and beliefs. You allow the relationship to have a spiritual competent.

If you are both able to feel free to express yourselves in a sexual way and feel comfortable with each other, then you have reached a good level of intimacy. It is more than just sex—you are sharing that most special part of yourself, and vice versa.
