Social media has opened up a completely different method for making money. Gone are the days when everyone strives for a stable 9-5. Now, you can make money doing just about anything that tickles your fancy. One woman has found her true calling, and with the help of her socials, she is now making a living as a professional cuddler. So, if you are missing some physical intimacy, without the sexual fantasy, Robin might be your next best therapist.
Robin, the professional cuddler
In 2018, Robin Marie discovered her true passion in life is giving therapeutic cuddles to those in need. Robin believes that the power of touch can heal several internal aspects. When COVID-19 came along, physical touch was scarce. Many people retreated into their homes and became fearful of others. This has impacted society negatively, and Robin intends to fill the void of others with a caring touch.
Robin advertises her cuddling services on the website called cuddlist.com and charges $80 per hour. There is a wide selection of other professional cuddlers that will suit a variety of preferences. “I’ve been a professional cuddler since 2018 and I love to cuddle! What I love about cuddling is how it allows us to slow down, tune in, and be present to the moment,” reads her profile. “To be held by another human being with kindness and compassion is a profound, affirming experience. I love affectionate, nurturing touch and became a Cuddle Therapist to share this with others!”
Are you in for a cuddle and a chat?
On the cuddlist website, they talk about what you can expect from your professional cuddler. “Each professional cuddler is there to listen, comfort, console, encourage, and journey with you throughout every cuddle,” reads the website. Additionally, it mentions that each cuddler will elaborate on their cuddling services, explaining what they have to offer you as a client.
Robin mentioned on her professional cuddler profile that she has a background in marriage counseling, and she used her master’s degree in counseling to help struggling marriages. “I have been a Certified Cuddlist since January 2018. My previous work as a Marriage and Family Therapist taught me the value of listening non-judgmentally, and cultivated a deep empathy within me for all people.”

But, if you do, she is all ears. Or, you can watch Netflix together while you embrace. The sessions are done while both Robin and the client are fully clothed, so there is nothing sexual about it.
“When you’re needing comforting touch due to life’s stressors, professional cuddling can make a positive difference,” read Robin’s profile. “There are countless health benefits in sharing platonic touch. Sessions are tailored to your particular needs and can include activities like watching Netflix together, chatting or just sharing silent hugs in cuddle positions.
