Comfort Sex - The Mac N Cheese of intimacy.
What is it? Who needs it, who wants it?
So, let us take comfort foods, for example. These meals bring nostalgia or are something easy to prepare and provide a warm and nourished feeling. These foods soothe. Comfort Sex is also very familiar and similar! You may have already engaged in this type of intimacy before and not know what it's called. It's the friendly, informal pleasure that helps soothe nerves or is a part of your morning routine. This type of sex is fantastic for self-love and mental health maintenance. It's worth noting that comfort sex is widely different per person, whether solo or with partner(s); it can come in many engagements.

Orgasms are not necessary but are always welcome.
Stop focussing on the climax when the journey is far more interesting. If you don't get an orgasm, who cares? If you enjoyed the intimacy, then f*ck yeah, you are better off for it.
