The hedgehog's dilemma , or sometimes the porcupine dilemma , is an analogy about the challenges of human intimacy . It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share heat during cold weather. They must remain apart, however, as they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp spines .
