Intimacy: The Elusive Fountain of Youth? THURSDAY, Dec. 13, 2018 (HealthDay News) — People seeking more satisfaction in their later years might find sex is the spice of life, new research suggests.

For the study, researchers analyzed survey data from nearly 6,900 older adults, average age 65, in England. The name linked most closely to the search for a fountain of youth is 16th-century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who allegedly thought it would be found in Florida. In 1493, Ponce de Leon sailed with Christopher Columbus on Columbus’ second voyage to the Americas.

He and his family settled on an island in the Caribbean named Hispaniola (Dominican Republic).

This desire helps to explain the motivation behind traditional searches for the mythical “fountain of youth.”

  • Do ppl have to know everything?Who wants to know!Do you ask other couples about their sex life and they ‘re many ppl who don’t have a sex life for one reason or the other and no intimacy at all.

  • I tried to be intimate with someone with this fear… it made things very awkward and it actually upset me unfortunately, because I didn’t understand it at the time and I thought it was because she didn’t like me, and was only leading me on. I wish I had known this before, because I did some things when I was upset that drove her off. We haven’t spoken in weeks. I still like her, but don’t know what to do…

  • Having multiple partners does not impact ur marriage, or it may depending on who u r. Sometimes previous memories r not pleasant and this will be a blessing in ur new relationship.

  • If simple life leads to greater inner intelligence, then the poor people who can’t eat luxuriously every day should have been the most intelligent people in the world. I can’t understand how it’s not happening ��

  • I don’t get it right. Why is having a sexual relationship loads you up with negative memory… what about the other way round, we have sexual relationship cause we load us up with good memory

    Can somebody help me understand Sadhguru

  • Well people are curious about the life that you have chosen to put up here. My heart breaks fr this young man but he is blasting his life on here but could of just said yes or no.

  • I started avoiding my 5yrs boyfriend when i caught him red-handed cheating with a married woman in her matrimonial bed.I was able to track their location through GPS,thanks to cyber genius”[email protected] gmail. com” for helping me with a spyware that gained me remote access to his phone activities,i saw their text and time schedule,i caught him and he couldn’t deny it.hackingloop is also reachable on +1 712 292-2655,if you partner’s commitment is in doubt.

  • So clear. So important. Life Transforming and freeing! Thank you for this! Divine Blessings and Gratitude. “Keep it simple.” ����������

  • I can debunk this whole thing quite easily. Your body doesn’t remember how to eat, walk, etc. You are a product of your environment. You learn what and what not to eat from your parents. You learn to walk by seeing your parents walk. Trust me, turn a crawling baby loose on the floor and they will put EVERYTHING into their mouth until you train them not do so by demonstration. Since that aspect has now been disproven, why should I take the rest of his “opinion” as fact?

    Have a good day, humans.

  • My notes:

    The body preserves memory of each interaction, so if you have a sexual relationship with one person the body may raise similar responses to similar people. This may cause confusion, because you may not be seeking a sexual relationship with that person. This confusion may also be carried in genetic memory, so that your descendants will be more likely to repeat these same interactions. Now that certain dharmas (ie obligations of identity / chosen life paths) may flourish in such conditions. For example, if sexual expression has been repressed beyond a comfortable point, it might make sense that a person would want to spread a healthy sexual expression to a larger extent.

    It should also be noted that sexual relationships are only a subset of all potential relationships (ie people can be friends for lots of reasons and do not necessarily need to sex). Also many sexual relationships arise from physical compulsions (ie being horny) and thus risk accumulating unintended karma (such as the aforementioned confusion in your descendants, or otherwise having to deal with the consequences like trying to keep the relationship secret).

    For these reasons it is usually best to keep one’s sexual life as simple as possible by following a good sexual diet, just as one follows a good food diet ie one followed with intention and a desire for greater awareness. This probably means monogamy for most people though not necessarily for all people.

  • 9:40 Suggestion: I agree completely on the consent and safety thing, but all those closed-ended questions are going to get a little odd for everyone. Alternatively, something that works well is ask her to “say mmmmm if thats nice and I should continue”. This actually does a few /other/ interesting things as well, without all the damn talking lol.. If she stops going “mmmm”, just go back to kissing her for a while until she resumes the mmm’s, and if it’s not happening, then check in with her by asking “are you ok?” If you get no reply from that, then it’s pretty clear you’ve fudged something up, and it’s time to switch modes and start talking coffee, hobbies, or something, but I’d say she was out of there at that point and you should reflect on why withOUT demanding answers from her maybe ask her ever so softly, “did something happen?” then just hug her and leave it.

  • I have that fear. As long as I can remember I feel awkward and uncomfortable when I talk about intimacy or hugs or just closeness. Fortunately my boyfriend of 8 years understands me. I can now see that I am a lot better at handling it, and being intimate than 8 years ago. Still have set backs sometimes.

  • I have always viewed sex as giving away a part of my soul. I don’t want to give it to just anyone. I don’t even want people touching me at all.

  • You can extroverted, center of attention, love attention in fact and still have a huge fear of intimacy. Like me I don’t like being vulnerable but I still love meeting people. I struggle with commitment but I fine talking to someone as long as we move slow. Honestly, I could be in the talking stage forever and never get close or vulnerable. I also struggle with actually having sex with someone, its very hard for me. I dont like sharing intimate parts of myself. I also dont like talking about my past, in fear it will be used against me someday. I prefer causal relationships or ones that go very, very slow. (Over the course of years, tbh) I like my space and I dont like being invaded. I dont like when people can read what Im feeling and I prefer to not tell anyone whats on my mind. I also hate when people help me or do favors for me. I like doing it alone so noone can see my struggle. I am very proud and I have very strong views. Maybe this is fear of intimacy. And maybe this will help someone who feels the same ways as me.

  • someone said to me “i missed talking to you ” today and i replied with “i would miss talking to me too ” and they just looked at me blankly smh smh

  • Excellent Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard about Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good exclusive product for learning intimate questions to make your relationship stronger without the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my old buddy Taylor at very last got amazing results with it.

  • Great Video clip! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you researched Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (google it)? It is a good one of a kind product for learning intimate questions to make your relationship stronger without the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my old buddy Taylor got cool results with it.

  • Note that some of these things do not automatically brand you as someone who fears intimacy. For example introverts needs their piece and quite time in order to recharge from overstimulation. This doesn’t mean they don’t like to cuddle with you in bed or on the sofa whenever possible.:P

  • How about someone PRETENDING to be suffering from such fear, in order to exert control over the relationship by making u wait for her/him endless amounts of time, and begging some intimacy? Some people LIVE with the drama u know… Giving them chances or understanding them is futile in this context I’d say

  • it just hit me today.. i have a fear of commitment and intimacy, i am afraid of letting go with my boyfriend on an emotional level

  • I think I’m scared to be close to anyone because everytime I even think about going on a date I feel so nervous that I feel sick and I can’t even think about sleeping with anyone. I want to be close to someone even if it just friendship but after my last relationship I can’t even be comfortable around my friends. My bestfriend told me that im afraid to be happy because everytime I was it was taken away. I don’t know what to do anymore. I want be have those close relationships with the people around me but it’s like im paralyzed with fear

  • I bursted out in tears at the very end… this kind, little narrator says that we should all get gentleness and kindness to face our fears just made me cry oceans…It’s so true but we don’t dare to be ourselves because we experienced that most of the people will go away instead of accepting us….

  • Ofcorse they have sex, just the way they look at eachother you can tell, they turn each other on so much, behind closed doors they probly can’t keep they hands off one another��������

  • Great video. This is me, and on top of everything else I have no compassion for myself either (but I have little trouble demonstrating compassion for others). I also was an introvert as a child and still am quite a lot now. Takes a lot to truly let anyone in, when I also don’t see myself as an attractive person…confirmed every time I experience romantic rejection. Have to love myself before can love another they say. But, learning to love myself feels it’d take the rest of my life to achieve. It all hurts very much.

  • If you do it just for a one time experience. Then its okay..but if u go on and on..and change partners on a regular basis.. then it creates trouble

  • I had a pretty normal childhood. My adult life is what scarred me. Every friendship I’ve had and every relationship I’ve ever been in has ended in betrayal.
    I’ve become a hermit and I hate it but I can’t deal with any more emotional pain.
    Now every time someone asks me to go do something with them I come up with an excuse why I can’t.
    I’d love to tell them the truth about why I can’t but I don’t want sympathy.
    It’s a very lonely life.
    I’m only 35 but I pray for death every night before bed and I’m disappointed when I wake up. Don’t get me wrong I’m not suicidal, I simply don’t have it in me to kill myself but oh how I wish this life would end!

  • Hi all!

    When you know you are loved, you are free to have intimacy. Jeremiah 31: 3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love; with unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”

    “To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”

  • Never in my life do i remember having to go thru so much trouble to get a woman. Listening to these types of video makes me fortunate to be at the stage i am in life. And i dont miss messing with wimen.

  • He says, you don’t have to be needy to feel happy. But God created man and woman to complete each other. So a relationship is an exchange of energies between male and female. When the exchange of energies between man and woman is balanced the relationship goes very well and the opposite is true. So guru what are you saying?

  • You two are completely adorable. I love watching your shows. Keep it up and continue to stay positive. It helps more than you know����

  • I finally found a man who i could trust love and feel safe but im having trouble falling asleep with him… i genuinly get nervous sleeping with someone next to me and he is no diferent… im working on it as best as i can. I dont want big fairie tales, big exciting dramas or life or death.adventures.. i want the simple things of life: having a couple of kids be happy have a good job at helping people and lots of learning, and sharing my daily life with my love and my closest friends thats all

  • Awesome video,always respect a woman, relationship and intercourse is amazing, best when it’s done right and consensual, remember a woman allows you inside her mind,heart and body,not to be taken for granted

  • 12 stages of Intimacy with a computer:
    (1) Eye to body where I look at the muticolor lazer beam enchanced freaking awesome case i have
    (2) Eye to eye my eyes looking at other peoples eyes on the screen
    (3) Voice to voice well mumble skype discord or Sitting Alexa down in front of Siri and have an interaction that way. ( rather entertaining)
    (4)Hand to hand my hand on this incredibly sexy $21 dollar keyboard.. Hot black plastic woot
    (5)Hand to shoulder where my headset cord lays caressing my shoulder to my headset which is I mean cool.
    (6) Hand to waist hmm ah where i get to adjust the comfort of my body and get squeezed in closer to the computer.
    (7) Mouth to mouth hmm AH mouth to mic where I speak to people and accidentally bite it when it gets in the way.
    (8)Hand to face where I clean my computer screen so I can see more of well the internet
    (9) Hand to body where I gently caress the body of my computer saying sweet things to the awesome feeling of power it gives me.
    (10) Mouth to body um crap let me think..ah where i blow off the dust sitting on top ( normally I am getting heat sensor warnings something is going on when I need to do that.
    (11) Juicy bits would include plug ins (very sexy btw) for various bits that you can plug in as long as they fit in..ok
    (12) Intercourse. Well that is when all the lights turn off and you go to work on the computer and forget to turn it off. Shocking yourself while fixing it and having it turn on in a big glorious display of I gotcha while it grins at ya:)

  • I seriously wish I had this guidance when I was in my 20’s. Things could have been so different, all I can do is teach my child, this information to protect them. ����

  • i find this conflicting because he has always said never make any conclusion about aynthing if it hasnt been your own experience. How can gurus yogis know this 100% certain if they dont do any sexual activities. Yes multible partners can mess up your system, but people can get more easier not relaxed and restlessness without any intimate connection. Perhaps india is different and asia but other parts in world its more complicated

  • yup, I have that, that’s what I have, I don’t want to get married or get in a relationship in general, making friends is hard enough, but guess what?


  • I just found u guys. What a awesome couple. I will find and watch all your videos. I know personally so many ways of haveing all the intimacy with out the actual deed per say. Cuddling is at the top of the list. So glad God put u together ❤.

  • I want peoples attention but when they actually give me attention I draw back and I’m afraid.One time a guy I know tried to hold me and I somehow got a panic attack I didn’t scream or do something my heart was racing really fast and I was scared I just wanted to disappear in that moment
    I just don’t know what it all means

  • I’m 44 this month. I feel nothing in terms of intimacy. My abusive covert narcissist mother showed me no love or affection. I repeated the same pattern in my adult life. I gave up on relationships. I think I need to try again
