It just seems like there are numerous ways that Rogue could be intimate with another person without draining them. Her powers work via skin to skin contact. So if she wanted to be intimate with someone, I mean really wanted or needed to be, couldn't she find typical solutions around the grocery store? For example: Couldn't Rogue wrap herself in everyday kitchen plastic wrap, creating a thin but sensitive coating against her skin, thus allowing herself to touch another person? In the same sense, she could wrap all areas that would touch someone entirely, thus allowing intimacy to occur. I mean, seriously, how bad does she want to have a physical relationship with someone? I'm sure some of you have come up with solutions as to how Rogue could touch another human being that are pretty down to earth and easily doable (No pun intended). Anyone else have any ideas how Rogue could carry on an intimate relationship with a person of her choice without killing them or rendering them useless?
Touching Rogue Theories
Rogue has had control over her powers for over 6 months now. She can have intimate relationships if she wants to. But after such a long time of physical solitude, she's keeping her distance until she feels ready to emotionally let go.
" Rogue has had control over her powers for over 6 months now. She can have intimate relationships if she wants to.

As soon as she finds happiness you know darn well it'll be taken away from her. Besides, stating the obvious wasn't what the question was about. I was just interested in seeing if people had come up with ideas about my topic.
There was one, brief member of Banshee's team named Radius who projected a field just a few nanometers from his skin.
When an earthquake swallowed him up after only two issues I remember thinking, "well, there goes Rogue's last opportunity for happiness."
But that was like 01 or 02. Things change.
I think Rogue could have an intimate relationship with Mimic.
I think that if Mimic took Rogue's power, he may be able to touch her without any adverse effects. What do you guys think? Do you think he may be able to cancel the effect?
Although the Naked Gun style would be perfect.
"Of course she's gonna go back to not being able to touch anyone sooner or later. Status Quo is the only law of comics."
Lol, yeah. She'd be a tad more outgoing, and people would scream SHE'S NOT EXACTLY THE WAY SHE WAS DECADES AGO!!!
Rogue's problem now is emotional not her powers. In the past she would probably have done anything to be able to touch someone, now that she has control of her powers she is afraid
if she gives into her emotions she will loose this new control she now has. I think she is more afraid of getting stuck with other peoples emotions and memories like she has in the past,
than unintentionally gaining someones powers.
