Real Men like to Snuggle

I suppose this is gonna be my own personal mini-rant. Somewhere along the line we've lost our snugglers. We traded them in for the uber Alphas. Tough. Ripped. Silent. Unemotional. And we lost the snugglers.

Alphas used to be snugglers when they found their woman. And they were even more snuggly when the kids came along. But now? They're too busy hauling their AK-47's around to be snugglers.

Now I'm not talking about during sex. A naked man with a naked woman tends to get a little snuggly. But later...well see, that's the problem. Alphas don't seem to have any laters. Somehow, they're out in the barn or field rustling cattle or they're off fighting the bad guys. But they aren't snuggling anymore!

They don't cuddle up on the couch to watch TV or a movie. Don't share the recliner while they take a nap with their woman. They don't laze away the afternoon in the tub, scrubbing her back or massaging her feet.

Nope, they spring out of bed, yank on their clothes and go off to do whatever alphas do. I say we're cheating them of their rightful privileges to snuggle. They should be able to cuddle at the breakfast table. Or snuggle on the loveseat while they read a book.

Real men like to snuggle. Bring back the snugglers!


PS: Today I'm a guest at Cindy Spencer Pape's Blog. Drop by. Say hello! Go HERE!


  1. LOL! Maybe that's why 65% of women would give up sex for a year to be skinny as a recent survey says. Not me. I'll keep my chubbiness for a my good life. ; ) And he snuggles, too. (satisfied smile)

    I'm a fellow crusader and I'm following you.

  2. Huh. Maybe that's what I'm getting wrong. My heroes tend to like snuggling once in a while.

  3. Hey, Zan! Welcome! I'm glad you have a snuggler of your own!

  4. No, no, no. I LIKE your snugglers! That's my point. Alphas used to be snugglers. When you read the older erotic romances, they were snugglers. What happened???

  5. I know a real man who is an alpha and a snauggler...maybe I'm just lucky.

  6. I like the alpha man but maybe there's a happy medium. Snuggle for a while and get the romance on and then go blow something up. Perfect.

    I know what you mean though. Give me a hero who takes time to cherish a moment and I'm a puddle on the floor.

  7. Hello, Kari! Thanks for stopping by! I love a snuggler!
