Meet the Professional Cuddler Who Makes $80 an Hour Snuggling Clients
Do what you love, as the saying goes. And what Robin Marie loves is cuddling.
From a simple hug to full-on spooning, Marie of Kansas City, Missouri, makes about $40,000 a year offering professional cuddling services, according to SWNS.
"It’s very rewarding," Marie said. "It causes the body to release oxytocin, the 'bonding hormone,' which makes us feel happier and less stressed."
The sessions last between one and four hours, at $80 an hour, Marie said, but there are rules. All clients must be clothed at all times and the relationship is platonic.
“In the summer gym shorts is OK, as long as they come below the middle of the thighs," she added.
There are many reasons for seeking the services of a pro cuddler, according to Marie. “I get single people, people who are happily married, unhappily married, widowed, divorced, people in monogamous relationships and those with multiple partners," she said.
“Many people find it difficult to ask for what they want or need in life and seeing a cuddling professional can really help with that."
Marie, who went full-time in the career about a year and a half ago, has her own robust dating life separate from her job. "My boyfriends have been fine with it," she said. "They know that it’s not sexual at all."
She said her services have not only helped her clients, but herself as well.
“I have fibromyalgia and I’ve definitely noticed a reduction in pain, an improvement in my sleep, an increase in energy and a general reduction in my stress," she said. "... Cuddling has really helped me to go with the flow a lot more."
