Q: What service does Cuddle Up To Me provide?
A: We offer fully clothed, completely platonic cuddle sessions of 15 minutes to 5 hours for all humans 18 years of age or over. The goal of a session is to help us in those moments in life where we either need more touch or simply don’t want to take anything from the amazing people in our worlds to get what we need. We want you to know that you matter and you are loved without the guilt, shame, and judgement our culture can sometimes bring us when we try to reach out physically. The cost of this lovely service $60/hr for Certified Cuddlers and $80/hr for Master Cuddlers. Travel costs may apply. Park, outbound, and virtual check-in options available now.
Q: What happens in a cuddle session?
A: During a cuddle session we can hug, sit, lie, dance, sing, read, or play games, etc. This is your time to receive the love and attention that you deserve. We may hold hands and chat sitting close, lie and cuddle big spoon/little spoon style, or try some of the more than 80 poses we offer. We will customize the session to help create comfort, relaxation, and the sort of love a mother gives to her child. This is in no way sexual, but is intended to give you the feeling that you are not alone, and that the world is a good place. We all can benefit to feel the warmth and closeness of another to help us feel whole, and we are here to help you achieve that in whatever way makes us both feel comfortable. You will receive the sort of touch needed to help bring you the comfort that will encourage you to feel your best in each session.
Q: Can I talk during my session?
A: For now, no. In the future this: This is 100% up to you. If you are inclined to share with us, we are happy to listen, but it’s really whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. What we want is to offer you is a safe space to feel loved, understood, and appreciated. Many of our us have plenty of people who will tell us what we’re doing wrong or who seem to know how to be us better than we do. In our space we are here to listen without trying to fix it. We believe that with support we can all find the answers we are looking for from within. Please also note that all questions are welcome here. We are very comfortable holding our boundaries, so feel welcome and encouraged to ask anything you’d like.
Q: What about “natural reactions?”
A: Due to the family oriented interactions we strive for, this is rare. From time to time this may happen though. If it does we ask you to shift your body or change poses so that it does not become a focus of the session and so any physical arousal is not in contact with your cuddler. We are great at being the “big spoon.” You are welcome to chat with us about this or simply move depending on what is more helpful in the moment.
Q: What should I wear for my appointments?
A: We recommend you wear something you can move comfortably in. Pajamas, workout shorts, tank tops, and t-shirts are acceptable—or just whatever you are wearing that day, as long as you are comfortable enough. Please keep in mind that nudity of any kind is not acceptable for this service—on your part or ours. Cuddling sessions are based on unconditional loving touch only (never sexual touch). We have a minimum clothing requirement of workout shorts and a tank top. No undergarments may be exposed.
Q: What happens at my first session?
A: If you are booking a park or outbound session with any of us you are meeting for the first time we will meet at a local park, over the phone, or through a virtual option like Zoom to conduct a consultation prior to your first session. We will answer any questions you have, and get to know each other a bit. Most consultations take between 15-45 minutes. Consultations are no cost and no obligation.
Q: Are tips accepted?
A: Your gratefulness is very much appreciated, and if you feel like you need to give more we encourage you to book another session.
