Scientists have determined the ideal duration of the hug

British scientists from the Goldsmiths University in London have clarified how long the hug should last to cause a pleasant feeling, according to the website of the school.

The study involved 48 volunteers and another person, whom they had to hug.

The hugs lasted from 1.5 to 10 seconds.

Participants also had to use a different way of embracing – crosswise (when their arms are symmetrical) or neck-waist type.

The test subjects were also blindfolded to exclude visual perception.

After the hugs, they filled out a questionnaire and described their feelings during the experiment.

• It turned out that the most pleasant and warm feeling is caused by hugs lasting five to ten seconds.

• A hug lasting one second is described as less pleasant.

The way he hugged did not affect the feeling.

Scientists plan to continue studying touch perceptions and find out which hugs are considered too long and which are the most pleasant.
