I love what you said here, and I completely agree with you. Cuddling makes you feel vulnerable. Sex can be just for pleasure, even though I wouldn't have sex with someone I have no feelings for. But understand that people have urges. However, cuddling is hard to fake I feel. But again a lot of people do these things without any emotions.
right. and even if you do them with emotions, after the 100th person, is the emotion as strong? I’d say no
I think cuddling is best when you have feelings for that person. You feel loved and appreciated.
I totally agree
How on earth does this warrant two pink downvotes? That's just weird. And I agree with you. I miss cuddling with my wife more than I miss sex with her.
@Bluemax The only thing I can figure about the downvotes is that some young people have the idea that anyone who is 65 years old "certainly" shouldn't be having sex and shouldn't even be talking about it.

I am glad you understand. I think cuddling is different for men and women. I think most men treat cuddling as part of sex, but for women that is part of emotional intimacy. We can't fake cuddling.
Maybe they do. Beats me really. I just know I am not ‘touchy’ with anyone I do not have an emotional attachment towards. Whereas I can sleep with someone and not feel close or an emotional attachment towards them. It is as if I reserve ‘touch’ for the One I am with.
But wouldn't you say that the way you cuddle with someone you have feelings for and with a hook up is different? That there is more intensity?
Not always, the physical act is not much more intense, mainly the sensations.. I don't have a problem being physically close with someone I do not know well, as long as I feel safe and that can come quickly with some guys who are open and nice to me.There might be more eye contact with someone I have feelings for, which intensifies things, but honestly, if I think he is super handsome I can look at him for hours XD.
Yes. I feel being held by someone makes you feel vulnerable and emotional.
Yes, I think so too. Sex can just be physical, but I think cuddling is more emotional. It is awkward cuddling someone without some sort of connection.
Agreed, it is very awkward cuddling a person you don't already have a preexisting connection with.
