I am not sure where this should go so feel free to move it if necessary.

I was reading a book today that was talking about hormones and how they effect men and women differently. in men too much oxyocin makes their testosterone levels decrease which increase stress levels. So too much hugging can really stress DH out. :lol:

I'm sure Oxytocin was a medication we used to give women post child-birth to help their uteruses contract. If it occurs naturally in boys, then it would be in extreme small amounts. I've no knowledge that it's given to males, except via the internet, where it can be used to allow them to bond with people a bit better.

I guess that you'd need to hug your husband for about 23 hours per day to suppress his normal testosterone and make him stressed. So be happy with a little bit less hugging time to keep him stress-free ok :lol:
