FEAR OF TOUCH
“In American culture, we believe that men can never be entirely trusted in the realm of the physical. We collectively suspect that, given the opportunity, men will revert to the sexual at a moment’s notice. That men don’t know how to physically connect otherwise.” How a Lack of Touch is Destroying Men by Mark Greene
“Since men have such a strong sexual desire, when we touch, there are pretty much always some sexual thoughts running around someplace in our minds. While I’d have to say that there is some element of truth to that supposition, it’s actually blocking non-sexual intimacy."

“Men are discouraged from greater levels of emotional intimacy, especially with other men. Sharing is weakness, and weakness is something to be avoided among men.” The Surprising Need for Male Intimacy - Paging Dr. NerdLove
