What happens to your body when you cuddle
Men hate cuddling and women can't get enough of it, right? It's stereotypical, but there is a basis for the generality. Through clinical experience, psychologist and psychoanalyst Michael Bade, D.M.H. came up with an explanation. In an article for Psychology Today, he detailed a woman's need for intimacy (cuddling) post-sex and a man's need to separate the two (roll over and go to sleep).
According to Bade's Freudian theory, cuddling provides women with reassurance that they haven't been abandoned and men, seemingly subconsciously, slink away as to avoid any obligation to care or provide for the woman. Eek!
Here are some of the awesome things that happen to your body when you cuddle.
