I give my opinions and thoughts after an unethical professional cuddling scandal in Arizona came to the public. I have a lot of strong opinions about this.
Sometimes when I check in on a client that saw me before they tell me they weren’t sure how long they would have to wait before they could book another session. They were worried I would say no if it was too soon, and they were worried that maybe I didn’t like them.
What happens when a client gets into a relationship when they didn't have one before?
This isn’t just a “Meet new friends, hug a lot and get paid” gig.
Often people keep the two intertwined together: If they say no to me, they're saying no ABOUT me. But that's not always the case. It's just that particular thing.
I don’t do sex work, but the laws around sex work may affect me too.
This is the one question I get asked over and over and over again when I first tell people I'm a professional cuddler.
You probably didn't give it much thought, but here's why.
I read an article recently about someone that thinks this field is turning cuddling into a commodity. And I want to challenge this idea.
He's been directly responsible for improving both my training and the way I approach my sessions overall.
How can you be a professional snuggler and stay safe doing the work?
At least once a week someone asks me how they can do professional snuggling. When they find out I've trained people, they want me to take them on now. But not everyone is going to be a great professional snuggler.
A brief expanation of what happened and how shockingly overwhelmed I was.
I'm here to be with you.
Despite the progress I've seen since starting Snuggle with Sam, there is still a lot of people that don't understand the intent of a session.
I in no shape or form think I am a therapist, although some of my clients may treat me as one. So what am I here for?
Why is it important to reach out when you're hurting rather than stay silent?
Cuddling is good for you on a physiological level. Here's one of the chemicals you produce when you do and what it can do for you health.
