The Pitfalls of Cuddling (and How To Avoid Them)by Scott Alden on June 09, 2011
Personally, I really like cuddling. Say what you will, but I love wrapping a woman up in my arms, smelling their hair, the whole deal. I really don’t get why people don’t like this. It seems pretty obvious to me.
Unless I really have to sleep. Or their hair keeps getting in my mouth and nose and i can’t breathe. Or it’s really hot and we’re both really sweaty. Or, worst of all, my arm gets trapped under her body and falls asleep.
Thankfully, the good folks over at The Gloss have put together a comprehensive guide to dead-arm-free cuddling. Some of their suggestions are really helpful! Some are totally ridiculous. If you’ve ever encountered this problem before, though, you owe it to you circulation to check it out.
They did miss my standard move, though, which is to put my non-cuddling arm under both of the pillows. This provides extra head support and encases my arm in fluffiness all night. You’re welcome.
