Are you naturally affectionate? If you don’t mind sharing platonic affection with strangers for pay, you can become a professional cuddler. The site connects clients with people who provide “touch therapy.”
- Set your own rate
- The site requires that you charge at least $40/hour
- Most cuddlers set their rates considerably higher, typically $80/hour
- You collect payment from the client in person
- Women – the site takes a 15% fee off the top
- Remit the site’s 15% fee by automatic debit
- Different rules for men (Due to supply and demand)
- Men are charged a monthly fee to post a profile on the site (Charging a monthly fee was a way of weeding out the non-professionals)
The average job involves holding hands, talking, or spooning in bed. The “work” is good money for little effort if you are comfortable providing “touch therapy” to people you don’t know. Sites that provide “touch therapy” emphasize that the job is not about sex. Any sexual advances or negotiation for more are prohibited. If you feel uncomfortable or if the client breaks the rules, you can leave and still get paid. There is a minimum level of hygiene, and you can charge for travel time.
The nature of the job is risky, take precautions if you choose to provide “touch therapy.”
What Users Say: (From TrustSpot)
Love, love, loveeee working as a proffessional cuddler for this site. The funtionality is simple, the layout is easy to follow along. And its surprisingly a very active site for a lot of areas!
Overall it’s a fairly good website. There are some areas that could use improvement. One being is why they raised the commission rate from 10% to 15%.
The second is why there is no way to collect money from people who don’t show up for appointments or cancel at the last minute. Cuddler rules state we’re supposed to collect this money but how are we supposed to if we’ve never even seen the person? They’re not going to pay us half in advance.
The third problem coincides with the second problem…I had someone constantly contacting me on the website and texting, basically bombarding me with messages but wasting my time trying to make calls, video chats or meets and they always fell through. I had already told him that I was not interested in seeing him as a client but he kept creating profile after profile. I had 5 of his profiles banned. He was also texting me from 3 different phone numbers. If CuddleComfort had their PayPal or bank account information that would stop him from being able to register one profile name and register a new one six hours later.
Cuddle comfort is an amazing site. It’s the community and relationship with its staff that truly sets it apart from all other cuddling sites. I have been a long time member and I am fully satisfied with cuddle comfort as a provider of professional cuddlers and with my overall experience.
