Samy  Molcho - Hug Me, But Don’t Touch Me


In his new book, Samy Molcho dedicates himself to inter-human relationship, from the job environment and loose acquaintanceships to love relationships, and he shows by way of numerous photographs how we can either intensify or dissolve these contacts through nonverbal signals. He goes beyond the realm of body language, illuminating in this intelligent foray how important it is for one’s own sense of well being whether the intensity of the contact to other people is felt to be pleasant or not. To recognize whether nearness is allowed or distance is desired is indispensable for a functioning relationship. Various aspects are described – for example, avoiding or supporting contact, developing trust or expressing mistrust, delaying, demanding, showing love and sympathy, and hiding anxiety and insecurity. The body has its own language, and whoever understands it can react sensibly – for the body never lies.
