Spread the love

Cuddling or to cuddle for couples means holding and touching your husband or wife in a loving way with no intention of having sex but which sometimes leads to sex. The primary intention of cuddling is to show your partner that you love him or her but men especially usually turn it to sex. Men learn to intentionally cuddle only without turning it to sex. Thank you. Lol.
