Intimacy tangent

I wondered why the part has been given the name, and whether it is intended to have a special artistic connotation. I started with a disctionary definition:

intimacy

a. a close association with or detailed knowledge or deep understanding of a place, subject, period of history, etc.:
an intimacy with Japan.
b. an act or expression serving as a token of familiarity, affection, or the like:
to allow the intimacy of using first names.

c. the quality of being comfortable, warm, or familiar:
the intimacy of the room.
