Touch is so important, every human on earth needs to be touched, to have a sense of closeness and to stimulate the tactile sense. Scientists have found that regular physical touching can lower stress, high blood pressure and cortisol as well as boost the immune system! There is also the research from the 40's that proved when infants are held and cuddled they thrive but when they were in an over crowded orphanage and didn't get picked up and held, they often died.
