I am a psychotherapist and I ask all my clients as they leave if they want a hug. Almost all of them do. My own therapy, before life became so litigious, included being held like a baby, and holding others in the group therapy sessions. I am convinced this was a major part of healing. In Austin there are free, meet-up cuddle groups. I have been told they are also clothed and non-sexual.
