Our entire body is covered with skin, a sensitive sensory organ which continuously sends loads of information to our brain about ourselves, other people and the environment around us when we are touching or being touched.
This may come as a surprise to many, but the skin has actually been performing this task since we were still in our mother's womb. Touch is of such great importance and necessity to our health and happiness whereby premature babies will eventually fall ill, and may even die from the lack of it.
This is also a very good explanation to why people always respond in a self-hugging position by wrapping their arms around their shoulders or torso when they are feeling insecure and vulnerable. It is sort of like a way to comfort and reassure themselves of the current situation.
This type of self-touching gestures are also needed to assert and maintain our reality, our solidity and our boundaries in our daily lives. And a recent research has also found that tactile people are proven to be more attractive and interesting compared to the non-touchers.
