What is oxytocin and why do they call it the cuddle hormone?

I was listening to the news the other day and heard about this hormone which they are talking about. I was curious a bit and I want to know what it is all about? Do both men and women have this? What are its effect to the body?

    Oxytocin is the cuddle hormone because it is released during loving moments…. Snuggling up to your partner during a romantic film, walking hand in hand with your spouse, cradling your baby…. all of these moments are brought to you and made cuddly through your release of oxytocin.
