sex has always been the easiest of the things on that list

That is insanely more comfortable. The alternate unmentionable option always causes me to internally jar when I hear other people say it. I appreciate that they can but it feels too awkward to me, as if saying that would cause everyone within a 1-mile radius to turn and stare at me and find me naked for being expressive about a vulnerable emotion *shudders*
Basically what SouthernKross said. I show it when someone is able to make me feel comfortable enough to show it. Otherwise, I am acutely aware of the expectation, and it makes me go into sp mode. That said, I LOVE it when people can get through to my sx side.
My biggest show of intimacy is when I sing in front of the person. I normally never ever ever sing. Ever. Because I am deathly afraid of someone hearing me.
Not in my room (I have flatmates), not in the shower (neighbors/flatmates could hear), and not even when driving if I'm in traffic and cars stopped next to me could hear. I don't know why I'm so weird about that, but I am. I'd only dare sing in front of someone if I fully trusted them.
So, if I sing in front of you, I probably really love you.
I'm not quite certain I can identify intimacy vs non-intimacy. Brings back the warm, fuzzy feeling of dealing with frequent migraines and saying "But it's NOT a headache."; primarily due to the pain being near my eyes, not my "head". Definitions are rather annoying.
I'm not exactly forthcoming, but I don't worry about people knowing what many consider personal details.
