We’ve all been there — you’re over at some girl’s house, you want to get closer to her on the couch in order to make your move, so you pull the classic offer to cuddle with her. More likely than not, you’re in for disappointment.

Scientists claim that only one out of six cuddles leads to sex.

The study, a first of its kind, shows the habits of hugging, and focused on the intentions of cuddlers.

The study shows that cuddling does not usually directly lead to sex, but rather is used as an opportunity for a couple to talk about their respective days.

Cuddling does have a sexual benefit, however, as the study found that couples that cuddled more generally had better sex lives.

Typical couples cuddle at least eight times a week, with each cuddling session lasting about 45 minutes.

The most popular places to cuddle are sofas, armchairs and beds, and — surprise! Women enjoy cuddling more than men.

The University of Michigan researchers asked more than 500 men and women in relationships about the frequency and length of their cuddles and how cuddling made them feel.

So while it won’t directly lead to sex, if you play your cards right, cuddling will certainly benefit you when she does want a little more action.
