I love to cuddle. I snuggle with my boyfriend, my dachshund, my famsquad, and my friends (don’t make it weird, because it’s not). It’s fun, it’s relaxing, and it can lead to sleep, which is the best thing ever. Lions and wolves do it all the time. Ergo, snuggling makes you a fierce bitch.
I always read stories about how guys try to take off after sex without snuggling, and I’m not sure if I buy it. If a guy is trying to peace immediately it’s probably for other reasons, like the fact that you’re a twenty-year-old with a One Direction poster above your bed. I just don’t believe that there exists a man who doesn’t like to snug. We probably just think they’re not into it because they would rather take a kick to the nuts than dish to their bros about how bomb their last cuddle sesh was.
But they’ll never love it as much as we do. We crave that shit. Sex is basically all just foreplay—the post coital cuddle is where the money’s at. All we want to do is get up in his nook and sink our wolf-lioness hybrid claws into his stomach.
A study out of the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada and Trojan condoms found that men who skip the cuddling are killing their girlfriend’s buzz, majorly. As it turns out, men who stick around to snuggle boost their partners’ sexual enjoyment by 30 percent. Basically being cuddle buddies helps your relaitonship not be a flaming pile of sexually frustrated garbage. Robin Milhausen, PhD and author of the study, says that snuggling is an easy way to improve your relationship. She told Men’s Health:
“It’s a really important, but often missed, opportunity for connection.”
She also says more snuggling increases the chance of more future romps. More reasons that we should all just quit what we’re doing and cuddle. The study also found that 53 percent of men skip cuddling and hop out of bed, which again amazes me. Next time he tries to jump out of bed because he has “uh, a brunch,” tell him he owes it to you to be your ladle. At least long enough for you to fall back asleep. .
