    Note: I have more questions, but there was no more room.

    For my part, as a straight man, I think that if more men would admit that they want to be cuddled, they would have much more successful relationships on an emotional level.

    That said, I really look foreword to seeing what you guys think!

    I have a question: are you the big spoon or the little spoon.

    Men can spoon ONLY after playing Muscle March.

    Does it matter?
    I can always switch. [​IMG]
    I agree with Rydian. Women can hold men too. It feels good.

    I think cuddling is a pretty intimate act. If you were in a relationship and your significant other cuddled with someone else, I'd say that goes along the lines of cheating.

    I think cuddling can be platonic depending on the friendship.. I mean: I think cuddling is like a hug, or just warm thoughts about eachother... like... "aww my cat died" "oh, com'ere" -hugs- something like that... And I think that's okay depending on the friendship!
    And... Why wouldn't it be okay for a man to ask to cuddle?

    I wish I got hugs more often [​IMG]
    I need a "Free Hugs" t-shirt to wear around. Maybe a few folks would go for it... maybe...

    In other hug related news. I do believe most hugs are platonic and a few are intimate. Depends on your relationship with the person and how close you/they are willing to get.

    I like cuddles.

    It can be platonic depending on the person and I don't mind if I was with someone and she hugged someone though obviously not one of those long hugs.

    Hugging someone on the settee while watching TV is something I miss from a relationship. Sadly my female friends are in relationships so its not something I can get from them which I understand but a little warm embracing hug will do.

    Yeah that, sometimes its good to be held and if guys feel weird about it then they have issues.

    Requesting a cuddle from another guy in my neck of the woods will get you beaten and tied to a city lamp post.

    Not saying that's the way it should be: just stating how it is.

    There's another type of cuddle too, not platonic or romantic. I cuddle my 6 month old Baby all the time and I love that.

    On the other cuddle types, I think a platonic cuddle is a hug, isn't it? I hug my male friends quite often but we never cuddle. Come to think of it, I never get cuddled, I'm the one who does the cuddling in my relationship! Hell, I want a cuddle!

    When you're talking about cuddling a baby, it's a little different.
    I love it when my baby nephew falls asleep laying on my chest. [​IMG]

    What I'm referring to is the case of two adult males.

    Thiiiis. [​IMG] And I grew tall quickly so it seems when I do get cuddles (which I haven't in over four years, I move a lot and people scare me IRL) I'm always the one doing the holding because the other way around wouldn't work well physically.

    I'm fairly sure a cuddle with another man would be a tad too homo-erotic for me. A hug with a male friend, however, can be quite a manly thing to do.

    Also, do straight women cuddle each other or is that just hugging too?
