Throughout history, men have functioned in society and work as protector and provider, and as a result, many of them learned to shut down their feelings. In essence, getting the job done was more important than taking the time to explore feelings and men felt that more feelings/sensitivity would just hold them back or get in the way. So to cope with the pain of battle and protecting their families, men often learned to turn off their feelings. When they stopped feeling pain, however, they also lost their ability to feel pleasure and love. While this can happen with both men and women, we most often see in counseling that men have trouble opening up and sharing their feelings -- they do, however, feel and connect when they're engaging in physical intimacy. While a woman needs to feel already connected to engage in physical intimacy, a man often feels connected WHEN he is engaging in physical intimacy.
