Cuddling in bed is key to a happy sex life, New Study

Cuddling post coital is the key to a good sex life and relationship overall, according to science. And it’s even more essential once you have children.

According to new research, what you do straight after sex can have a big influence in the success of your relationship.

Kisses and cuddles in the afterglow is supposed to lead to a more satisfying and happier relationship, boosting the affectionate aspect of your love life.

The first part o the study was an online survey of 335 singles. Participants self reported that they typically engaged in 15-minutes of “affectionate behavior” after sex. The second part of the study surveyed 101 couples for a 21 day period. The pairs were asked to cuddle for a longer amount of time than average which yielded positive results. The research showed that the couples who boosted their time spent snuggling felt more satisfied with their sex life and with their relationship, regardless of how much or how little sex they were having.

Spending longer durations of time snuggling is particularly difficult if you don’t have much spare time, but it’s also even more crucial. Cuddling in the afterglow of sex is especially critical for couples who are also parents:

“Time spent cuddling after sex had a stronger impact on their relationships than it did for non-parents. It is possible that additional bonding time after sex is even more important for couples who may face challenges finding time for intimate connection. If you are able, spend those extra moments with your partner…make time for shared intimacy, such as cuddling, kissing and intimate talk.”

Though it seems a bit obvious that more time spent snuggling would result in stronger bonds, it’s nice to have confirmation that non-sexual affection is important. This research on gooey intimate moments was funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and a University of Guelph-Humber Research Grant, so it must be pretty serious. Let’s give affection the attention it deserves.
