Where one being wraps their arms around the body of another being and holds them close for a moment. The psycho-physical message is along the lines of: "It's okay, I've got you"

Is mostly non-sexual, unless you go for a grope halfway through it ;)

Not strictly limited to humans, hugging can be done by other species, replacing arms with wings, tentacles, hooves, etc....
Within friendship, hugging can be a great way of expressing support and platonic love :)

The actual best thing ever. Hugs are the shit. They can pick you up when you're feeling down, or you can just enjoy them whenever. It doesn't have to be with your significant other or a family member. You can just walk up to one of the boys and tell him, "hey bro, I'm having a rough day, can I get a hug?" and if he's truly your bro he'll say "I got you bro" and give you a good-ass hug.

Don't ever think that needing a hug makes you less of a man. You're a king, and you deserve the right to be respected and heard when you let down your walls. It's okay to be vulnerable, and sometimes a hug is literally all you need. Go get your hugs
Me: "Hey man, I really need a hug"
Bro: "Bring it in man"
*hug ensues*
Me: "You're the man bro"

Girl: "Want a blowjob?"
Me: "Actually, I'm kind of beat and I could really just use a hug."
Girl: "Oh okay, do you wanna talk about anything?"
Me: "No thanks, I just wanna be held for a bit."

A hug can be between friends, relatives, man and woman, and human and animal, as well as animal to animal. A hug is an expression of warmth and friendliness with arms outstretched around the other. Hugs are used as an expression of love, kindness, sympathy, friendliness, greetings and used sometimes to say goodbye. Hugs, or cuddles provide a sense of intimacy. If there is chemistry between two people when hugging, then a tingling sensation can occur.
She says:- "your hugs are amazing!"
He says, "Why, it's just a hug? Lol"
She says, "'Cause they make me tingle!"
He says, "Where do they make you tingle, lol"
She says, "All over!"
He says, "Lol."

The hugs made her tingle because she had chemistry for the guy, something that doesn't come along very often!

when someone wraps their arms around another person to make them feel better about a rough day or just to show they care.

the BEST thing anyone can do for anyone else.
She looked like she was depressed, so I gave her a hug to make her feel better.
