  • Snuzzling, the action whereby one snuzzles, is most often performed in the fur of an adorable pet or stuffed animal, or commonly into the snuggly non-erotic crevice of a loved-one.
    The action is performed thusly:

    1. Place face directly into desired snuzzling area.
    2. Rapidly shake your face left and right while maintaining, and even slightly increasing, contact pressure.
    3. Emit highpitched giggling or nonsense phrases such as "nom nom nom" or "snoogy woogy woogy!"
    4. Continue ad nauseum until exhaustion or the expenditure of the patience of the one being snuzzled.
