When you look up the word “intimate” in the dictionary, there are a few definitions. They include things like warmth, private, sex, personal, and familiarity.

Intimacy can start with the brushing of fingertips, delicately grazing your hand on someone’s cheek.

Our “Ask A” series returns, this time to talk to intimacy coordinators about their work.
