I think the need for closeness, sexual or otherwise, has to do with the desire and need to have the closeness and protection that wasn't there as a child. Sexual stuff gets mixed into it for a variety of reasons, probably different for each person.

If I had seen a female some years ago, I suspect I would have wanted the "good mother" who wasn't there to protect and in fact was rather paranoid and crazy herself. I sort of came to terms with what my mother was like before she died. She had her good qualities too and had her own problems. So in therapy I don't really like to focus on her contribution to my state of affairs, but it is there. I always want to counter it with the good about her too.
