Young men are touching each other more. That’s part of the findings of a recent study from Winchester University about college “bromances”. The undergraduate interviewed for the – admittedly small-scale – study said they valued physical intimacy among their male friends, and were found to be more inclusive, tactile and emotionally diverse than their 1980s and 1990s counterparts.
It’s not a new observation – last year saw a wave of columns on the subject in the wake of a Speedo-clad clinch from Olympic swimmers Jack Laugher and Chris Mears.
