People aren't getting in the HUGS they used to during the pandemic. So if you NEED a hug . . . there's this?
There's a Dutch practice called COW HUGGING where people literally hug cows for hours. The BBC says, quote, "the cow's warmer body temperature, slower heartbeat, and mammoth size can make hugging an incredibly soothing experience."
And during the pandemic, cow hugging has apparently become a lot more popular. So if you're interested, I guess find a farm offering this as a service.
