I learned something about myself today.  A new study that is out has found that mens' brains respond very strongly to a simple, gentle touch!

Researchers found that the brains of men who were being gently touched by their partners lit up in a big way, and being touched released chemicals  into the man's bloodstream that are critical for maintaining good relationships with others.  It’s important to note that none of this touching was done in a sexual way at all.  It was a simple touch of the arm, hand, head or cheek--and a man's brain will light up!!  Cool or what??    (NBCNews.com)
