Uhhhh. No. That’s not really a regular thing.

Ya, I think guys these days are starting to be more comfortable in their heterosexuality and have no problem showing affection with their male friends. My FI is a confidecnt an VERY hetero guy, though totally at ease with other sexualities and does not get weird about non-sexual male affection if it happens, whether from friends that are straight or gay. I think it’s great; if two girls that are friends can cuddle, why not guys?

I think it depends on the age group. I’m really surprised that everyone is jumping on the “no” train. I’m sure some guys do.

scarlettbegonias87:  there was a Sex and the City episode years ago about how the younger generation was more bisexual.  That was in 1998.  Human sexuality has probably been the same since the caveman times. Truly straight men don’t cuddle and it’s not a generational thing.

Hmmm. Are you sure they’re not gay?

I mean, it’s totally cool if they are. Marriage for all, whatever! 🙂

Buuuut…yeah, I can’t picture 2 straight guys cuddling together haha.

Cuddling? No.

Some affection maybe. A lot of non-USA cultures are much more affectionate than us, yes even the men. I’ve known men who will share couches or blankets with their friends, jokingly cuddle for a few minutes maybe. Never longer than 10-15 though. 

If they’re liking, back to butt snuggling for extended periods of time, adding any king of touching to the mix, that is a little different than anything I’ve ever seen among platonic hetero males.

Not anything I have ever seen! 

My FI and I cuddle all the time on the couch (like most couples). I was out of town & his friend came over. They were watching a movie and FI got up for a beer. When he came back he sat RIGHT next to his friend and put his arm around him. 

He said when he realized what he did (in the habit of how he would normally sit with me) he jumped up and was just like “oh god, I’m so sorry man…”

scarlettbegonias87:  My fiance and his army buddies will “cuddle” jokingly. There have been times where we were all drinking and 3 of them (fiance included) will be found laying on the floor each spooning one another. It’s all fun and games, they make jokes about how its necessary for survival when out in the field or deployed to “stay warm”. haha

Also my ex boyfriend and his friend have also been known to cuddle from time to time. I remember the first time I saw it i walked into the room to see them laying together watching football. I was like “Uhhh is this cheating?” hahaha. We are in our late 20s/early 30s so idk if that makes a difference. In neither cases has it actually been sexual or gay or anything. Just silly.

Lol, I’ve never seen that. How bizarre! And for what it’s worth, I’ve never seen straight women “cuddling” either, unless they’re mother & daughter. I’ll hug girl friends hello or goodbye, but I would never cuddle on the couch with them. I’ve never even seen a guy hug another guy, so… yeah.
