There’s a lot to like about hugging and other physical contact.
But for people who aren’t ‘huggers,’ it can be a total nightmare to be in a world with others who think they have the right to physical contact.

If you’re the one who hates hugs, though, a man named Alex is here to save the day. At a juggling convention in Poland, he decided to demonstrate all of the ways to get out of an unwanted situation.
