16 Types of Hugs

From a friendly hug to a passionate squeeze, hugging is the universal language of love, comfort, and friendship. Read through this list of different types of hugs and pick a few to try with your sweetie.

  1. 'I Love You' Hug

    A close cheek-to-cheek hug that says "I Love You" even more with an added kiss on the lips.
  2. 'I Want You Now' Hug

    A close hug with a bit of rubbing and grinding.
  3. Big Bear Hug

    Pull your partner in really, really, really close, put your arms completely around them, and squeeze tight.
  4. Butt Squeeze Hug

    A sexy, passionate hug. Pull your partner in close, lift your leg around their legs and give their butt a passionate squeeze.
  5. Ecstatic Jump-n-Hug

    Run at your partner and jump into their arms with excitement!
  6. Encouraging Hug

    Pull your partner close and give them a gentle squeeze with a light pat on the back.
  7. Friendly Hug

    Put your arms lightly around your partner's shoulders and give a gentle squeeze.
  8. Group Hug

    A hug involving multiple people - family or friends - where you all put your arms around one another.
  9. Half Hug

    A quick wrap, lightly touching your partner where your arms only go halfway around (hence, half a hug).
  10. Hello & Goodbye Hug

    A quick, semi-close hug paired with a kiss on the cheek.
  11. Hug of Joy

    A semi-close hug with excitement and movement that often times includes a bit of excitement jumping.
  12. Passionate Squeeze

    Pull your partner in closely and give them a passionate squeeze as you gently kiss along their neck.
  13. Snuggle Hug

    Usually works best when sitting on a couch, etc. Drape your arm around your partner's shoulders and snuggle up in close!
  14. Spoon Hug

    While not normally thought of as a hug, the 'spoon' is essentially your arms wrapped around your partner -- a hug! While lying in bed on your side, pull your partner close and wrap your body around theirs in a 'spoon' position.
  15. Sympathy Hug

    Pull your partner close and lay their head lightly on your shoulder as you give their back a light rub.
  16. Tree Hug

    Find a large tree (perhaps while picnic-ing), and each partner wrap their arms around the tree to meet the other partner's hands.
