How to hug a lady
In your friendship with women, there will come a time when they will let you touch them. They are very specific about where, and for how long, but this is contact all the same. Ladies call this Hugging. It is not the petting zoo you might have imagined, but like a zoo, there are strict rules to follow, and cries of sexual harassment if you don’t.
Many people hug, so it’s important to remember that it’s a convention, not a privilege. Accordingly, you shouldn’t view it as a chance to ‘cop a feel’, but instead, behave responsibly, and return the hug without implications.
The First Hug
The first hug is the most exciting and dangerous. It will tell you a lot about the lady, and how they feel about you. It will become a template from which all future hugs will spring. Get it right first time, and you’ll soon be hugging with no clothes on for minutes at a time.
A key rule is to let the lady dictate the pressure; but this is difficult to gauge, as the first hug will only last a moment, so it’s best to play it safe.
The first few hugs will be more a meeting of the shoulders as you lean towards each other instead of any torso-to-torso intimacy. Let your arms rest on them, whilst applying only minimal pressure. I call this The Drape. It is relaxed and non-threatening. Remove your arms as soon as she begins moving away. Keep it simple, and without any excessive flourishes.
Words to describe actions you should avoid:
If you’re worried about your technique, practise on a large cushion. If you can hold the cushion without changing its shape, then you’ve got it right.
Key to knowing if you’re pressing too hard:
- You feel her breasts flatten against you.
- She screams.
