When you cuddle with your romantic partner, your body releases a hormone known as ‘oxytocin’ that helps to release stress and makes you happy and feel good. It also lowers your blood pressure and stress hormone.

However, there’s much more to cuddling than simply wrapping the arms around someone and holding them tight. You can say cuddling is kind of a love language all on its own. Here are some of the benefits of cuddling

  1. Creates super sexual intimacy: Relationships always need constant care, affection, love, and endless cuddles.  According to multiple studies, couples who cuddle before or after sex have reported higher sexual and relationship satisfaction.
  2. Helps to communicate emotions: Acuddling touch creates an intimate bond with your romantic partner, shutting out the rest of the world and lets you focus on each other. Touch is a way to communicate emotions like love, gratitude, sympathy along with happiness and sadness.
  3. Makes you happy: It’s essential to continue cuddling throughout the relationship as people feel more loving and affectionate towards their partner when they cuddle.It has an extremely positive effect on our emotional state, which keeps us happy, healthy, and satisfied.

Researchers say that hand-holding and hugging lower diastolic and systolic blood pressure. High blood pressure is linked to heart disease and stroke, so consider regular cuddling a part of high blood pressure treatment.
  7. Leads to sex: Some peopleprefer to cuddle before having sex as it releases the hormone dopamine which increases sexual desires and helps to prepare a woman for an amazing act of love.

A good hugging, snuggling, massaging, and kissing, all comes under cuddling and there’s always the right way to do it. Here are some popular cuddling positions to help to get closer to your partner:

  1. Spooning (“spoon”): “half spoon” /”little spoon” and “big spoon” is the ultimate cuddling position like when your partner wraps around you in their arms while you’re both lying close on your side and your stomach rest against their back in bed. Your body fits as spoons fit in a drawer.
  2. The sleeping hug: Also known as cuddling hug or honeymoon hug where you hug each other and think spooning except facing each other and it feels so close that you can feel the breath of your partner.
  3. Butt touching: Exactly how it sounds, as you lie on your sides facing the opposite direction on the bed but your butt touches.  You try to touch his/her butt more and continue to sleep.
  4. Leg touching: You are so into sleep but you still try to play with your leg by touching or putting your leg on top of your partner’s leg. You want to sleep more but you still do it because you want physical contact.
