According to a study by K-Y and The Kinsey Institute, touch (hugging, holding hands and a light massage) is important for a healthy relationship.

The study also revealed many couples aren’t touching each other enough.

“Touch is important for sustaining a healthy relationship but it’s also necessary for our feelings of connection, safety and overall wellbeing,” says Dr Justin R. Garcia, the associate director for research and education at The Kinsey Institute.

“People who experience regular loving touch benefit from increased oxytocin levels, which has been associated with lower heart rates and lower blood pressure and over time, can decrease a person’s risk for many serious health ailments.”

Renowned sex and relationship expert Dr Laura Berman also told Fox News Magazine that touch is important for building intimacy in a relationship and we do our relationship a disservice when we don’t touch our partner.

Dr Berman suggests couples set aside just 15 minutes, twice a week for cuddling and hugging with no intention to having sex.
