Would you pay for a snuggle?

From the article:

Looking for a little extra affection? Meet Sam Hess, a 29-year-old cuddle professional who makes a living by selling snuggles to those in need.

Hess’s Portland, Oregon based company, called Cuddle Up To Me, offers two basic packages: A 30-minute session for $35 and a 60-minute session for $60 (She charges a $1 per minute in overtime), during which Hess and her client might hold hands, cuddle up on the couch, or spoon to the tune of her "cuddle playlist,"

Do you see any potential problems with this? How successful do you think a business like this could be in todays world?

  • I'd like to say no, but there may be a time in my life someday when I haven't had anyone in years, haven't had a friend or family contact in years. Honestly, after my parents are gone, I really will have no one. So it's possible that after years of that, I'd consider it. I probably wouldn't do it though because I'd be too ashamed.

    As for what I think of it - it's incredibly sad. I think people are feeling more and more isolated and lonely and more and more people are becoming desperate for a little tenderness. Many people don't have that in their lives and they feel paying for it is the only option. I feel awful for them, I want to hug them for free just because they feel that way. What an awful feeling.

  • Snuggles are great, but I think cuddling with a stranger isn't as nice as it sounds. Cuddling is only truly wonderful when you love the person you're doing it with. Besides, sitting/laying there with a stranger sounds awkward. Would they talk or just sit there quietly? Haha

    If a company like this became popular I might work there haha. I wouldn't pay to cuddle awkwardly with a stranger, but I'd happily get paid to do it.

  • No I feel uncomfortable when a stranger touches me, I'd never pay one to lol. Though Sparrow makes a good point, I have no idea what my life could be like in my later years or what I'd do because of how it is. I can't imagine my answer would change though.

  • Hell no!

    I can hug myself.

    That's desperation to a whole other level.

  • No. I don't pay for friendship. My parents used to go to dinner parties with people that they were hiring for services and I could never understand how you could be friends with somebody that you are doing business with.

  • No way. I am not comfortable with people touching me. Especially strangers. I don't care if they are professionals or whatever. Nobody is touching me.

  • The fact that this is a successful thing is a depressing piece of information. As for the question would I pay for a "snuggle" - No and I hope I'm never at a point in my life where I would pay someone to snuggle with me.

  • In a world where people are feeling lonelier and lonelier services like these, which are essentially escort services in the making even if they begin innocently enough, will thrive.

  • I guess there's nothing wrong with this, but I couldn't live with myself if I had to resort to paying someone to show me affection. Still, my guess is that she has no problem finding clients.

  • I don't see any problem with it, I think it's a good thing. People get lonely or depressed for all sorts of reasons, if they don't have anybody close and all they want is a hug, why not? I wouldn't do it but I can see why some would.
