Types of hugs: brief guide to embraces

Did you know that there is a variety of hugs ? These moments of affection in a relationship offer a range of positions to cater to all your desires and needs. Whether it’s to initiate intimacy, express your desires, or strengthen your bonds, the types of hugs speak volumes about your relationship. Discover our brief guide to the types of hugs to practice as a couple. 😍

A simple pleasure ?

Beyond immediate pleasure, each embrace comes with its own set of benefits and meanings depending on the stage of your relationship. In a new relationship, innocence and intimacy can be found in simple acts like holding hands, sitting side by side, or lying with your head on the knees. 😊

Types of hugs and their benefits ✨

Sitting, standing, in bed, upside down, right side up… Here’s our brief guide to embraces to give you some ideas. 🤗

The beginnings 😊

Hand in Hand 👫

Whether sweaty, soft, cold, or warm, the meeting of a foreign hand often signals the start of a relationship. Innocent and intimate, this gesture provides an instant connection. Ideal for the early stages of a relationship. It can also be easily let go.

Sitting side by side, eyes locked 👀

This type of hug perfectly describes the initial desires within a couple. Diving into your partner’s gaze during an embrace awakens intimacy. It creates a sense of stability and strong connection, combining comfort and intimacy while maintaining a certain independence. Perfect for deepening bonds gently.

Head on the knees 🫠

Cuddles, sweet nothings, scratches, and tickles… 😍 Welcoming your partner onto your lap and offering caresses 🫠 what a pleasure! Hair caressing provides deep comfort, reinforcing the feeling of connection and security. This surrender to the other reveals your trust and paves the way for more romantic hugs… 😏

Sitting hugs 🪑 (at the same level!)

Sitting hugs carry significant symbolism by leveling differences in height, reinforcing equality. More comfortable and enduring than standing hugs, they promote optimal closeness. The lounge chair position, where one of you is between the legs of the other, is also a very pleasant supportive position that creates a good balance between giving and receiving.

Romantic hugs ❤️‍🔥

The famous spoon 🥄

Whether small (back and stomach pressed together) or large (with the arm draped over), the spoon is one of the most beloved types of hugs! It provides a sense of security for one and protection for the other. Ideal for strengthening intimacy and complicity. It is also very useful for sharing a soothing romantic nap. 😴

The arm curve (the “half-spoon”) 🥰

Your partner, lying on their back, embraces and cradles you with one arm while you are snuggled against them. In the crook of their arm, this intimate position fosters love and closeness, offering a sense of unity.

Head on the chest 💖

Quite close to the half-spoon, laying your head on your partner’s chest is so delightful. Listening to their breathing and heartbeat enhances your connection in a calming and timeless moment. 😶‍🌫️

Yin-Yang, 69, or head-to-toe position ☯️

Place your head on the other’s legs and face each other. This rather rare position creates a simultaneous flow of giving and receiving, ideal for increasing intimacy and reconnection.

Why not add a leg or foot massage to it? 🦶

Hugs for sleep 😴

Hugs in bed before entering the realms of Morpheus promote body relaxation and strengthen your couple’s bonds. Nothing beats a hug for falling asleep with positive and reassuring thoughts. All the types of hugs mentioned above can be adapted for sleep. Just avoid falling asleep with arms or legs trapped; the wake-up could be strange. 🤣

The benefits of hugging 🫂

Hugs, more than simple affectionate gestures, are genuine well-being boosters, endorsed by science!

When you engage in the physical act of hugging, your body turns into a happiness factory. Well-being hormones take center stage: oxytocin, nicknamed the hug (or love) hormone, is the star of this chemical production. It provides you with a dose of well-being, pleasure, and pure happiness.
