(Quoting from the newsletter you can get by visiting the site)
“Scientists have discovered why being hugged feels so good – human skin has a special network of nerves that stimulate a pleasurable response to stroking.
Until now, no-one knew the function of these nerves. But the revelation came after doctors realised that a woman with no sense of touch still felt a pleasant sensation when her skin was caressed with a paintbrush.”
It’s nice to see the site I started back in 1995 is able to offer so many more sophisticated services (like daily email newsflashes) today.
