Cuddles: Not Just for Chicks! New research shows that male snugglers are happier. 


A new study reveals something that (most) women have known for a while: cuddling is good! And not just for us female folk, but for dudes too. The research, conducted by The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, showed that men with long-term partners tend to be more satisfied with their relationships when they receive plenty of cuddles, hugs and other forms of physical affection. 

The study looked at more than 1,000 heterosexual couples across the globe, including the U.S., Germany, Brazil, Japan and Spain, who have been together for between one and 51 years. Japanese men reported the highest levels of happiness in their relationships, while Brazilian and Spanish men were less happy than their American counterparts. And Japanese and Brazilian women reported greater happiness than the others. 

If your partner isn't willing to up the cuddle factor, try a surrogate snuggler: My After Sex Buddy! Hug this super-soft, tightie-whitie wearing doll when you need a happiness boost!
