I am looking for a word or phrase that portrays the feeling of watching an intimate (but not sexual) moment unfold.
Some context; A is keeping a watchful eye on E because he is worried about her safety. In the process he realized that he was watching a really personal moment that maybe wasn’t right of him to witness
I know that being a voyeur is generally connected to the sexual gratification from watching - but A is particularly uncomfortable after.
“She (E) closed her eyes, reaching out her arms as if in an embrace and I (A) got the sudden sense of ______”
