Nude Married Couples

While getting naked may seem unusual, doing so can actually strengthen physical intimacy between spouses. Physical intimacy refers to feelings of closeness and connection through loving touches–nonsexual touch such as holding hands or kissing–such as holding hands or kissing. Physical intimacy is one of the six Pillars of Intimacy and connects to all other forms, including emotional and sexual. Cuddling naked with your spouse will deepen both aspects of intimacy through dialogue while building trust through vulnerability.

Sleeping naked can increase physical intimacy by strengthening the bond you share through nonsexual contact and strengthening loving non-sexual bonds between partners. Studies have also indicated that couples who sleep naked tend to engage in more passionate sex than those sleeping in pajamas. If sleeping naked feels daunting to you, try gradually transitioning into it; for example, if low self-esteem or body image insecurities prevent you from sleeping naked, start wearing underwear instead and gradually gradually come out from under your covers more frequently.

Exploring sexual intimacy with your spouse can be an enjoyable way to show the depth of your love and commitment, but it must be handled responsibly and respectfully. Be sure to honor their sensitivities, discuss possible concerns with them and consider seeking professional help (like from a sex therapist or coach ) should any difficulties arise.
