    I thought this was an interesting, kinda cute, very heartfelt, somewhat bold and maybe a bit risky profession. There are now professional cuddlers out there! http://cuddleuptome.com/retail/

    Wow, what does it say about us as a society that people need to get touched by a "professional"? That's so sad...
    Having said that, let me know when you get into the business! :D

    I have heard about this before, cuddle cafes, some people just go in for the company, someone to talk too. It's kinda sad.

    Ha! If I went in for a cuddle, I'd probably be asked to leave. Not for intentional inappropriate behavior... but, depending on my Cuddle Tech (LOL), I might respond in a certain involuntary way....

    :rolleyes:

    I dunno... a couple of the staff are kind'a cute. Could be hard.... to remain in a relaxed state.

    :D

    Ahhh... I see. LOL! Well, I won't have to worry about that "uncomfortable" scenario....

    I just can't see ever doing this. I remember hearing about this a long time ago. Thought it sounded odd—however sweet the intentions are.

    haha thanks Maria, somehow I don't think I'd be a good hire for this organization, unless they have a "get poked" cuddling session package :p

    Haha! Exactly... I mean, if I am going to cuddle with a female… alone... on a bed.... Umm... chances are, I'm going to at least want the option open to go beyond the cuddle. :D

    I hear ya Coffee, I don't think you and I would fair too well if we were trying to get hired by the company. They stress and say numerous times in the descriptions that these cuddle sessions are strictly platonic and are more along the lines of what family would do for each other. I don't think we'd get a call back! lol

    Oh, I am sure they stress that point about their.... operation. If not, they'd probably get depraved cuddle patrons like us.

    Would be fun, though, to see how far one could push it.... figuratively, of course. :rolleyes:

    LOL a "get poked package" sounds awesome! Too bad they don't offer it, a little poking has never hurt anyone :D

    I remember hearing about these cuddle cafes (for lack of a better term) before at least the one that sweetly posted a link to. In Japan they are pretty big due to the culture because they are so focused on work or education or what have you that they need places like that in order for these men to feel some comfort or feel some sort of touch, however this was sometime ago so I may be mis remembering a lot, That being said i am very surprised to see them over here not that i am against it some people do want to just cuddle and relax with another person due to stress, work, etc and i think it is a good way for people who are not very social or have a hard time bringing the subject up can actaully go somewhere and experience this.

    I agree it's sad to think people need to pay to have someone to cuddle with or whatever

    That sort of thing is great, maybe it could eventually lead towards legalization of prostitution which is long overdue, IMO.
