The armpit and flank area of the human body, in which another individual (normally a partner or close friend) snuggles into for security and comfort. An arm is placed around the snuglee at neck level, creating a fleshy pillow of the shoulder or pectoral muscle, and sealing the oxter embrace.

Can be used to mean both the lying oxter, as in a couple laying horizontal on a sofa or bed, or the standing oxter, as is often seen when a couple stands perpendicular to one another, with the larger of the two placing an arm around the other.
After a long and gruelling day, we crawled onto the sofa, stuck on Netflix and I burrowed into his oxter. I was asleep within minutes.
