Cuddling

Snuggle up!

Who doesn't love a good cuddle?

Warm and intimate, cuddles really do make everything better. They're also great before or after sex or even during. They show how much you want to be with the other person and enjoy being so close to them. Many face to face sex positions incorporate cuddling as it offers lots of skin on skin touching, bringing a greater intimacy to love making. Cuddles aren't just all about soppy romance either. They are a wonderful way to get close to your partner, show intimacy and cuddles that turn into sex are definitely the best ones ever!

What happens to your body when you cuddle?

The happy hormone oxytocin is released and gives you a wonderful sense of well being. As dopamine is also produced, cuddles can increase arousal too, so don’t safe those hugs for just post coital activities. Hell, a good cuddle even lowers your blood pressure and stress levels. Everyone needs more cuddles in their life!

What is the best position to cuddle in?

Whatever you like the most! Big spoon or little spoon, face to face or side to side. Whatever works for you in your given situation. Lots of skin to skin contact, though, can really make a hug something special.

What are some intimate alternatives to cuddling?

Sometimes you don't want to cuddle but still want to show your love and affection for someone else. Tell them with words, it's okay not to want to cuddle but don't leave your partner hanging! A quick kiss is a good way to show affection when in a rush or if you want to be intimate but it's too uncomfortable for full body touching holding hands could work.

    Similar fetishes and kinks to Cuddling

    Kissing seems like a big deal to us when we're teenagers, but as we grow older, it can start to lose a little of its mystique. It's a great shame because it's a wonderful way to build intimacy between partners, and without it, sex can start to feel a little impersonal. In a fetish context, there are plenty of ways to make kissing a part of your dynamic. Kissing someone who is tied up can add to the sensual feeling of helplessness, for example, while kissing a blindfolded person all over their body will keep them wanting more and make them unsure what to expect. It can also form an important part of aftercare, helping you to reconnect with your partner on a cosier level after an encounter that may have been quite emotionally intense.
    A little bit of scratching is extremely common during sex, be it as a way to heighten sexual tension or an unconscious reaction to extreme pleasure. A lot of people find it extremely erotic, and some have a remarkably strong reaction to the right kind of scratching in just the right spot! As with all things - especially sensation play and anything involving potential pain - it's important to check in with your partner rather than risk doing something they dislike. For some people, scratching forms a part of BDSM and kink. There are a few relatively common toys designed to assist or enhance the feeling, like the pinwheel or the vampire glove. If you think you might be interested, however, it's a good idea to start with fingernails and work up. You might be surprised by how intense the sensation can be without any external assistance at all.
    Simply put, vanilla is the opposite of everything we're about here at Fetish.com. That doesn't mean it's a bad thing, though - quite the opposite! All kinds of sex are fantastic for the people who desire them, and the best way to run your sex life is exactly how you and your partners want to. It's also important to bear in mind that just because someone has kinks and fetishes doesn't mean they never want good old vanilla sex. Sure, there are those amongst us who need a little kink all the while to keep it feeling good - but there are plenty more who crave a little vanilla every now and then and find the experience one that promotes intimacy and builds trust.
