Is it legal to be a professional cuddler?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (17501points) May 1st, 2017

No sex just cuddles? I watched a program on CNN about Being a professional cuddler. On unites shades of America. Would it work for me?

It is legal. But you might have difficulties getting paying customers.

@zenvelo I guess I’m the wrong gender to become professional cuddler?

@RedDeerGuy1 You might just be too big and intimidate people.

There’s a thing like that in Japan, if I remember well. They hire chicks to cuddle with them.

You need to have the looks and the character for people to even want to be hugged by you.
And some people are just not made for that

Oh but @ragingloli, I bet that dude would be hired by you for cuddles!

@janbb
Being strangled while a long phallic object forces large eggs down your throat?
Hot.

Snuggle away. Just no happy endings.

For either of you…..

No, actually, you’re the right gender @RedDeerGuy1. Most guys don’t want to just cuddle. They want sex. Girls would love to be cuddled. Just cuddled. But it seems like always, always turns into sex.

I suppose… so long as you don’t discriminate…

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@kritiper I wouldn’t feel comfortable cuddling with a dude. I would talk to anyone for $60 an hour.

I prefer to cuddle with dogs and cats. The idea of paying a human, especially a stranger, to cuddle seems super creepy.

Dutchess_III's avatar

It kinda is, isn’t it @Kardamom!

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@Kardamom Thanks I found it creepy too. I’m not seriously considering it as a career. Just being tongue in cheek.

Sneki95's avatar

I don’t find it creepy…

Dutchess_III's avatar

What if they had BO or flatulence or bad breath @Sneki95?

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Yeah. Or all of the above.

I can’t imagine a more awkward profession. LOL. What if your client just wanted to hold you face to face, for like an hour (with the lights on.) Weird as hell.

Some people probably would just cry on you. That’d be super sad.

Obviously, some would assume that more than cuddling is going to happen.

Some clients wouldn’t be too bad. But the bad ones…......

Or what if they are Bill Cosby?

MrGrimm888's avatar

Lol… Oh my. I used to love Bill Cosby…..

Dutchess_III's avatar

You guys maka me laugh! You know what MY experience with a professional cuddler would be if I was in my teens and 20’s! Or 30’s. Or even 40’s.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Yeah. Sounds like a crazy job.

Sneki95's avatar

@Dutchess_III It’s all nature, baby.

@MrGrimm888 “What if your client just wanted to hold you face to face, for like an hour (with the lights on.) Weird as hell.”
I’d try that. It really would be awkward, but an interesting experience too.
Sometimes, you just need a stranger to stare at you for a while.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Umm awkward…..~

Kardamom's avatar

Ewwwwww! Bill Cosby! The sad thing is, that most of us probably loved Bill Cosby before all of his dirty dealings became public. He has probably hugged thousands of little kids and grown women who thought he was delightful. It’s such a shame that a once beloved person turned out to be such a terrible creep.

Sneki95's avatar

@MrGrimm888 Don’t worry, Grimmy, I won’t be staring at you.

MrGrimm888's avatar

I have a staring limit, in regards to strangers. Then we need to talk…

I can remember feeling awkward , spooning with a couple of my chosen partners. I toss, and turn a lot. If I avoid broccoli, that’s my biggest problem cuddling…

MrGrimm888's avatar

I stared at a bird once, for about 3 minutes. Well, an owl. I was trying to figure out what it was thinking.

My conclusion, it was sick of me staring at it. But owls always look offended…

Sneki95's avatar

^ I did that to my dog once too.
And a cat.
And a goat…

MrGrimm888's avatar

Creepy confession; I’ve stared at a LOT of animals. Eye to eye….

Been almost bitten, and bitten many times.

Yeah, most goats are nice. I played ram our heads with one once. He won…. I pissed of a mean old Billy goat once too. It didn’t take much. I get it though.

I was having a staring contest with my dog just this morning. I won…

Sneki95's avatar

^ Ahah, I pissed off a dog by staring at it once. They don’t like when you’re looking at them.
And I agree about goats, they’re super cool.

Patty_Melt's avatar

My understanding os some people make very good money doing it.
I don’t think it is creepy. I find it noble to be willing to comfort someone who needs a cuddle. It would be super important to stick to the rules.
