‘I always start out spooning and I am pretty small, so usually I’m the little spoon’
No nudity, no sex, just cuddles: How one woman is making a living from snuggling – but for $60 an hour, would you pay to hug a stranger?

Jacqueline Samuel, 29, from Penfield, NY, opened The Snuggery last month, a place where, from upwards of $60, clients can snuggle with the petite Master’s student in a strictly non-sexual context.

Sessions of up to 90 minutes take place in a private room while friends and family members mill around the house offering protection from any over-enthusiastic clients.

For customers interested in Jackie’s services, most of whom are men, she admits, a series of FAQs provides information about what clothing to wear and what kind of behaviour is appropriate.

Sexual arousal, reads the website, ‘is perfectly normal and should not make anyone feel uncomfortable,’ but acting on those impulses is forbidden.

The cozy cuddler is not yet drawing enough clients however to give up her real estate day job.

‘It’s cuddling. Either you want it or you don’t,’ she reasoned.

An advocate of the notion that ‘touch’ is a healing activity of which most Americans are deprived, Ms Samuel believes that just a few minutes of cuddling can relieve stress and aggravation for up to five days.

Studies show snuggling lowers blood pressure and stress.

‘Research provides us with ample evidence that physical contact with others has a positive effect on our physical and mental health,’ she writes on her website
