What does your cuddle style say about you?

 

 

Cuddling is what many people like and no it doesn’t make you vanilla. Cuddling ensures safety and comfort and send a message to your partner that you are there for them not just for their body. Below mentions are a few benefits of cuddling:

Creates more sexual satisfaction and intimacy

It is often believed that cuddling is the first step for engaging in physical intimacy, but people often believe that it is not necessary to cuddle after having sex which is not true. A study in 2015 presented that couples who cuddle even after making love have higher sexual and relationship satisfaction than those who don’t.

Increases bonding among friends

Oxytocin is know the “cuddle hormone” for a reason. As mentioned earlier it makes you feel comfortable and secure along with making you feel loved and connected. And all of this is not just for people in romantic relationships, people cuddle as friends and that only makes their friendship stronger. The more you cuddle with your friends, the more secure you will feel and the stronger your relationship with them will get.

Boosts immune system

It is said that Swedish massage as a part of your cuddling can work wonders for immune system. Swedish massage is an incredibly technique that involves tapping and kneading strokes. According a study in 2010 people who received this massage had:

  • more white blood cells that fight disease (lymphocytes)
  • less of a hormone (arginine vasopressin) that increases the stress hormone cortisol
  • a decrease in existing cortisol levels
  • a decrease in cytokines that may cause inflammation
