What is Professional Cuddling?
The goal of Professional Cuddling is to provide people a safe space to feel respected, accepted, and worthy for exactly who they are. Sessions are one on one, fully clothed, and platonic, utilizing clear rules, consent, and ongoing open communication from both sides.
What is a Certified Cuddler?
A Certified Cuddler is a Professional Cuddler who has undergone online or hands on training to learn the art and science of platonic touch in a one on one setting. They have completed a minimum of 30 hours of training prior to obtaining certification and they have agreed to follow rules, guidelines, and oath set out by Certified Cuddlers to ensure all interactions are safe and appropriate in the context of platonic touch, communication, and consent.
What are the rules?
All of the rules can be found in the waiver, but these are the basics:
No sexual intention of any kind. No touching where a swimsuit would normally cover. No kissing. Hands outside of clothing at all times. Both people must wear appropriate clothing with the minimum of a tank top and shorts that go to mid thigh or longer. No tipping. Payment up front always. Consultations and paperwork with a copy of a valid government issued identification is required before a first session with any new person. All participants must be 18 years of age or older. All information given to the professional is considered confidential. Adequate hygiene is required.
What is the cost of a session?
I offer a sliding scale of $40-$60/hr plus travel costs where appropriate. Tips are always included in the cost of the session, and no additional tipping is allowed.
Is a consultation required?
Yes, all first-time clients will be required to complete a consultation before any actual cuddling may happen and is required prior to the first session. In order to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable, you are encouraged to ask questions and the goal is for us to get to know each other a bit before beginning. Please let me know prior to a session, of any triggers, traumas, health issues, or other concerns to be aware of.
Is what I say confidential?
All information shared in conversation is considered confidential and will not be shared with anyone else, unless required by law or as outlined in these rules.
