The cuddle hormone is oxytocin. Oxytocin acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain influencing social interaction and sexual attraction and reproduction. The way mothers feel towards their child is due to oxytocin and this is how maternal attachment occurs. It also allows milk release to the infant.

Oxytocin is the cause of empathy, generosity, and orgasms. When people hug or kiss someone they love, oxytocin levels increase and that;s why it has this nickname. The hormone is stimulated during sex, birth, and breastfeeding but it also underlies feelings of trust and is an antidote to depressive feelings.
