Get Paid to Cuddle with Snuggle Buddies


Snuggle Buddies offer a touch therapy service that is completely platonic and pays its cuddlers $40 per hour plus travel expenses. They are currently hiring throughout the US, Canada, Australia and the UK because it seems there are a lot of people out there who are looking for a bit of human warmth.  It sounds strange I know and I am sure the majority of people are thinking it is just a cover story for an escort service, but Snuggle Buddies has appeared on national media and are not the only company offering this service.

The first thing you have to consider is the safety aspect, especially as most clients want to go and cuddle in your home. This is a benefit because you can have someone else in the house as protection, although they company claims they have never had any problems (you are required to call them after the session ends and if you don't check in they send the police to your house to make sure you are ok.)

Cuddling is considered Touch Therapy which is thought to help with a variety of ailments including depression, anxiety and high blood pressure. Modern society, especially in big cities, has us living a very fast paced lifestyle with less community or closeness to others than before. Single people living in a big city are particular prone to feeling alone and a cuddling service can give them the boost they need.

Although Snuggle Buddies is primarily a professional cuddling service, they also offer clients a 'hire a friend' type of service where they can hire people to accompany them to events.


  • Warm and caring personality
  • Agree to cuddle both male and female clients
  • Agree to cuddle all ages (most clients are over 50)
  • Agree to accept all races
  • Agree not to have any sexual activity with clients, including kissing

At $40 dollars an hour Professional Cuddling is certainly better paid than many work from home jobs, as long as you make sure you are safe.
