The Snuggery: Woman hopes to make a living cuddling you for $60 an hour

http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/tOPHT7ol4iL9HfwtvtQjOA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NTt3PTYwMA--/http://l.yimg.com/os/287/2012/07/13/jackie-header-jpg_174820.jpg

Twenty nine year-old New Yorker, Jackie Samuel, saw a need and then started a business to fulfill it. Samuel opened "The Snuggery" in her Penfield home, a place where clients can cuddle with her for $60 an hour.

"The Snuggery is a place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and focus on the simple restorative pleasure of touch. Though science has unquestionably supported the psychological and physical benefits of non-sexual touch, Americans distinctly lack it. It's time for change," Samuel writes on The Snuggery's official site.

Samuel's cuddling sessions are nudity- and sex-free. She insists that cuddling is about relaxation and physical touch and isn't sexual in nature. Friends and family are always present in her home to offer her protection if needed.

"Although sexual activity is not permitted, arousal is perfectly normal and should not make anyone feel uncomfortable," she writes. :D

"You feel more calm for days afterward," the University of Rochester graduate and current master's student claims. "It has numerous health benefits."

Samuel lists some of those health benefits in an interview with the Henrietta Post:

"It lowers blood pressure," she says. "If you're comfortable with touch, it can reduce your cortisol levels, and most studies show that when they have a reduction of cortisol levels, they're immune system is stronger. Cuddling can also increase your seratonin and oxytocin levels, which help you to feel calmer and more relaxed."

Samuel is currently working without a licence because there's isn't one for her niche company.

"I thought, I need to kind of validate my position," Samuel tells KGO-TV. "I need some kind of certification or license to show I'm a qualified cuddler, but I couldn't find anybody else who was doing what I was doing so I decided to just start."

Research supports Samuel's belief in the power of touch. Click here for five health-related reasons to cuddle.

Would you consider paying someone to cuddle with you? Or is that going too far?

I get kweshions.

Will the snuggle include rubbing against or tweaking the twins/twinheads :p?

Isn't this another form of outercourse, especially as it has been known that outercourse can get you to el-dorado :razz:?

Such a cute looking gril, she will certainly make a lot of sales, any takers :D:D?

All that contact (especially spooning position) and no action might end up hurting someone.

she's too skinny. I should be the one snuggling her:lol:

seriously, in order to enjoy a good snuggle, the woman needs to have some meat on her bones. A bit more buxom.
I'm taking my money elsewhere.

Oh-Oooh, thank you jare my brudah.

I saw the thing and I was like, she needs cuddles.

It's like she's trying to be paid for getting her freak on.

And look at her face too; she looks like one of them needy kittens.

In my world, only black women offer snuggles and cuddles. Hmmm, dark chocolate, hmmm! :D

Auspicious, may the gods of Ile Ife give you long life and prosperity. Nothing for me if not African women. African as used here means Nigerian women alone. I am not going to pay money anyway for something I am being offered at home for free. Flat chest, thing legs and flat buttocks are definite turn-offs for me.

I can imagine this would be the case and that there will be extra fee for the add-ons. In that case, she no dey pioneer anything. Her sisters that give lap dances and massages have been doing same from time immemorial.

In Nigeria, something like this (offering cuddles for $60 USD an hour) will be a non-starter. An Ashawo will give you everything for 2500 naira. throw in another 500 Naira and you can have 'extras'. that is still less than $20 USD. In Western countries where people are starved of attention and company, it will be a roaring success. I can imagine the lady cuddling an average of 6 persons per day. Multiply that by $60 USd gives an income of $360 USd per day. If she rests on Sundays she will have an income of $360 USD multiply by 24 which gives you an average $8640 USD per month and she still get to sleep at home and close by 6:00 PM. good idea but I am not going to be one of her customers now or in the future. the danger is that she may end up getting one of these psychos who will slit her throat for the fun of it.

I have a suggestion for her: to make this work and avoid having strung out men with blue balls, there has to be a shower stall close-by that only has cold water where potential customers can cool off prior to leaving. Plus she might want to invest in a burly bodyguard or two because I can see things going wrong in a hurry. Good luck to her...

My brother has a proverb that fits aptly and it goes thus:

If a man goes to the market to buy a dog and instead comes home with a monkey,he still ended up with an animal that stoops

I say more power to her. These days some men are not after sex a good cuddle and companion will suffice. I hope she smells good....and not smelling of sosorobia ( a poor woman's impulse ) :D

Myself if I am not in the mood a woman can cuddle and be butt naked all she wants noting dey happen. Actually back in the days it used to be quite a good source of amusement to get a woman all steamed hoping for action only for me to prefer to watch the Discovery channel :D

@Anwulika

Are you planning of setting up a cuddles service? Make sure you carry a POS device, na cashless era we dey now :D
in fact direct debit is better.

Have you ever consider writing a book? You are steeped in proverbs, traditions, etc. They are something not to be lost. On top of this, you have a way with words. So unique.

Being that she is caucasian, and knowing that people of her race are severely disadvantaged with regards to ikebe, it would do me no good to get a lap dance from her. In case you've forgotten,

I'm taking my money elsewhere.Any woman who tries to snuggle/cuddle me for a fee would within thirty minutes get more than she bargained for. I have electric fingers and if her capacitors and resistors are weak, she could even suffer a blowout!

ps: Oh, I forgot I am now a Born Again and old things have passed away giving way to the new! My hands are now for hugging Holy Books only! lol

I heard so much about this, Jackie Samuel as a Professional Snuggler Charges $60 Per Hour For Cuddles. We all know that cuddling has numerous health benefits but I couldn't imagine that the power of touch can be a mere business. This is so creative, on the contrary many people are against it due to immoral effect. Her business The Snuggery offers people the chance to pay $60 for a solid hour of non-sexual, non-nude cuddling. But it could be possible that the limits will be broken due to intimacy. Nevertheless, if you want to experience it be ready to pay her, ask for cash advance to pay for her snuggery service.
