Cuddling Not Sex Makes You Happier

Women will be using this new study to get their men to cuddle more.

According to study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, the sex alone doesn’t make you happy. It’s the time spent cuddling after sex.

Words and signs of affection following sex boosts long-term happiness and life satisfaction, says the new study.

“When engaging in sex, people not only seek an intimate connection, but indeed experience more affection, both when having sex and in the next several hours. Hence sex seems not only beneficial because of its physiological or hedonic effects, but because it promotes a stronger and more positive connection with the partner.”


So instead of a smoke, wrap those arms around your lover.
