Oxytocin: Niche or Not?
How I cuddled

Cud-dle! Cud-dle!

Mike and I are finally going to a Cuddle Party tomorrow. There are structured, pajama-clad snuggle sessions. Here was our conversation while cuddled up on Valentine's Day:

Him: I hope no men try to cuddle with me.

Me: You don't have to cuddle with anyone you don't want to.

Him: What if a man wants to cuddle with you?

Me: I'll decide when it happens.

Him: I don't want you to cuddle with another man.

Me: You don't get to decide that.

Him:  You're supposed to honor your agreements with your partner. (Gee, he read the FAQ!)

Me: We haven't made any agreements about the cuddle party.

Him: We have an agreement to be monogamous.

Me: I don't plan to have sex with anyone at the party.

Him: Cuddling is sex.


There is such a wealth of nuance and information about the differences between the sexes when it comes to love and sex, that I"m going to let this stand without comment.
