Back to Childhood?
For many, there was a time when you snuggled up against a parent, feeling completely safe from whatever challenges seemed to overwhelm you. Later, in a relationship, if you were lucky, you found someone you trusted completely and could drop your guard in their presence, lean against them and feel safe and secure! My childhood was different so maybe I gave so much passion to lovers, feeling I could trust only them to provide me shelter from a turbulent world. Cuddling represents that abandon of defenses, to me!
