My Body is a Cage

There is a song out there called My Body is a Cage. I can’t recall who wrote it but as far as performing the song goes Peter Gabriel’s version is what I find myself listening to most often.

Human Touch

There are also some emotional benefits from non-sexual touch. A reassuring or comforting touch can help with anxiety.
