Woman Arrested For Breaking Into Dude’s Home To “Cuddle With Him”

A Crime Of Cuddle In Florida

Cuddling is the most wonderful, life-affirming, endorphin-inducing activities humans can engage in. But let’s be clear here: it requires two consenting cuddlers. A refusal on one cuddler’s part to engage in spooning behavior does not, I repeat, DOES NOT justify coercion or aggression.

I Want To Get Over My Fear Of Cuddling

To the best of my knowledge, there is no technical name for my phobia. Although if we were to backtrack, I suppose it’s more of a fear than an actual phobia. Phobias directly impact your everyday way of life; this fear does not. I don’t wander the streets phobic that strangers are going to throw themselves o…

A Hug Or Cuddle Doesn’t Always Mean It’s Time For Sex

Relationships expert Dr. Pam Spurr writes in The Times (U.K.) that one of the secrets to a lasting relationship is touching without sex, i.e., hugs and cuddling. But men have been discouraged from a young age, around 9 or 10, not to ask for hugs, so they find intimacy difficult and think their girl cuddling…

Drew Burrows, an NYU grad student who’s been single for a long time, and was sick of coming home to an empty bed. Every. Single. Night. He just wanted someone who would cuddle with him, so he engineered a solution — a 2-D woman who lies in bed next to you, responding when you move.
