As someone who loathes hugs from anyone but the most intimate of friends/family members, I can totally get behind this call to.
Incidentally, while this is obviously super culturally subjective,1 according to my parents “promiscuous hugging” was definitely not a thing here a generation ago. So wherever it came from, it totally needs to go back.
- Also, yes! I am ethnically from a High Hugging Culture! [↩]
