I've been reading several on-line articles about the benefits of cuddling with your partner. I've read that cuddling could reduce blood pressure, calm down a stressful day, and it also could improve communication between you and your mate. Also, I've read that cuddling releases oxytocin or the "feel good hormone." According to psychologist and physical therapist Elizabeth Lombardo, the hormone oxytocin increases a person's overall happiness (shape.com).
I am particularly a "touchy-feely" person and enjoy the idea of being "close" to the one I love. But some people may disagree and say that sex is the best form of intimacy between couples. Do you believe the cuddling is the best form of intimacy?
