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.

Fake It ‘Til You Make It: Why So Many Men Are Admitting To Faking Orgasms

I, personally, have never faked an orgasm while in between the sheets. The way I see it, engaging in intercourse and not finishing lacks as much motivation as smoking “a certain substance” without inhaling (cough, Bill Clinton, ahem). But, hey – just because I haven’t done something certainly doesn’t mean it’s never been done before. […]
