Thats so true for me too. We never hugged when I was growing up, and I rarely touched my parents unless it was for something specific (cleaning dirt from my face etc). I try to avoid hugs as much as I can, they makes me so uncomfortable. There are a few 'huggy' people who I do hug, but only because I know that they like it and I am used to hugging them. It seems strange that having sex with someone new seems to me so much less daunting than hugging someone new.

I've never hugged or even touched my therapist, I would feel extremely uncomfortable. She strikes me as the sort of person who wouldn't do that unless it was in exeptional circumstances.
