An expert on body language explained what the different types of hugs mean, in particular, in bed.
Lying face to face
This is a sign of a very close relationship. In long-term relationships, this means that both partners still love each other very much, in new ones - that they want to know each other better and not only get closer physically. This posture provides close eye contact, helping to create an emotional connection. Without saying a word, you create a very confidential moment.
No matter if you are a small spoon or large in this position, such hugs are a sign of close communication, affection and satisfaction. Although such a manifestation of closeness is usually characteristic of long-term relationships, new couples can also lie in such a position when they feel close by very comfortable and contented. Moreover, such close physical contact helps produce dopamine in the body, a substance that increases sexual desire - which is why this posture is often associated with sex.
Putting your head on the chest partner
This is a manifestation of both domination and submission, a demonstration of trust, affection and love. A woman lays her head on the chest to whom she trusts. This position allows her man to hug her arm, which gives her a sense of security.
But it is also important how often you hug. If these poses were at the beginning of a relationship, but now they are not there, then you cannot talk about any proximity. Apparently, one of you is no longer interested in physical contact, which indicates a problem.
