/ Hide and Seek / Full episodes / 43. “Throw Your Arms Around Me” – Cuddle Club


Cuddle puddle toil and trouble

It’s all about intimacy this week as we get our cuddle on! We’re talking about what can sometimes seem like a lack of affection in our wham-bam thank you man culture of apps and casual hook-ups. It’s time for a bloody good canoodle!

Join the club

Tim has formed a new club centered around cuddling – so we unpack what the group members are looking for, how they arrange meet ups, and is more than a hug is on the cards? We talk about the health benefits of a spooning session vs a good forking, and get some advice from canoodle connoisseur John Stamos.
