hhmmm,,,,,,I for one would wait until at least ten dates. Intimacy is very personal AND gratifying (spelling). I have only dated one man since I lost my husband 12 years ago and I waited 5 years to do so. It was about 4 months before we were intimate. Had the fling for a year and then I wasn't religious enough for him. Cest la vie. Hookers on the other hand can be intimate as soon as you show them the money, LOL.
