It is helpful to make a distinction between communicating for information and communicating for intimacy.
Communicating for information is all about getting the facts and understanding the message. It’s more about the transmission of information than about relationship.
The goal of communicating for intimacy, on the other hand, is to know one another at a deeper level; it necessarily involves sharing our interior self, especially our emotions. This kind of sharing is often very affirming and sexy for a woman because she feels most connected with her man when she knows what is going on inside him. It is equally important to the man because without getting in touch with and communicating his emotions, he will never understand himself fully nor believe that he is loved just for who he is.
It’s about Communion; being one in mind and spirit.
You may be able to talk to anybody, but communicating for intimacy is a sharing of your personhood that you can and should only attempt with those you trust. The marriage relationship has the greatest potential for intimacy and deep trust precisely because of the other-centred attraction of your sexuality and the permanent commitment of your love. It allows you a kind of emotional nakedness and vulnerability that is at once exciting and profoundly bonding. To be emotionally “naked and unashamed” enough to share your deepest emotions creates a deep communion between you that is powerfully life-giving.
