Something someone said the other week I found a bit "O.o", she said "humans need physical contact to develop." After googling a bit I found a study on it, there was one about orphans in an orphanage, and how they weren't touched (not in a wrong way btw) as kids are grow up with social/psychological development failure.
More stuff here and this is a great article (ignoring the spacing and layout design). Another fascinating article, Physical touch affects emotional mood. A sermon on the importance of touch.
...touch deprivation in infants is correlated with failure to thrive in early development, along with future aggressive and antisocial behavior (Bonitz, 2008)
I found an amazing ebook, which you can buy. It's about Juan Mann's free hugs campaign. He felt sad one day, and gave random strangers hugs. And then other people started having signs for free hugs in public areas. The book is about Mann's journey, and hugs, a mission for 10,000 signs to allow him to continue free hugs, as some odd council person said he can't give free hugs, something about being a public liability. And it also has info + pictures about different types of hugs ^^.
From the ebook:
An interesting board on the topic of touch.
