Hugging was invented in 3500 B.C. as a way for cavemen on the Mongolian plains to keep warm during the months of November, December and February (January was fur dress month, so hugging wasn’t necessary). Luckily the tradition continues today. The hug, otherwise known as the bosom kiss, is one of our most basic human gestures of friendship and intimacy. Do you know what your preferred style of embrace says about you?
