Happy New Year, World! A big hug to you.
I thought I'd blog today about the fact that cuddle sessions come in different sizes and flavors. More on the flavors later.
THE BASIC CUDDLE: One hour
THE GENEROUS CUDDLE: 1.5 hours
THE DELUXE CUDDLE: 2 hours
Of course people can ask for sessions of other lengths too, but these are most popular. Some cuddlers, once they've worked for a client for a while, also provide OVERNIGHT CUDDLES. Like all therapeutic snuggling, clothes stay on at all times and touching is platonic.
So which cuddle is right for you? It depends on you, of course. Different people have different circumstances and needs.
If you're arranging for your first pro cuddle with me, you can't go wrong with a one hour session. Depending on schedules, if you find that you want to go longer, let me know and I'm happy to accommodate you if I can.
I had one client who said she wanted her first session to be 1.5 hours because she knew she'd be nervous and it might take her a while to relax, before she could have an embrace or two.
One of my newer clients booked 1.5 hours for his first session. And then one week later, he came in for a 2 hour session! He was a single gay man who hadn't been in an LTR for five years and he felt a bit touch-starved.
Cuddle sessions come in different flavors too. You mean you haven't had a Strawberry Spoon yet? No, this is what I mean. One of my clients wanted touch -- but in small doses. For her, a little touch went a long way. I showed her the book THE CUDDLE SUTRA where she could flip thru dozens of positions. We did one called "The X Factor." We basically lay side by side on the bed and I crossed one of my legs over hers in an X. It was a small gesture but there was a gentle warmth generated.
Some clients want a lot of body contact, holding of hands, back rubs, caressing of the face or hair. One thing I like to share, I borrowed from Reiki. It's where you hold someone's head gently in your warm hands. Either two hands covering the client's ears (which also removes all sound), or one hand on the client's forehead and one on the back of the head. This can be heavenly and soothing. If I have a headache, I hold my own head as self-care and it really helps.
Some of my clients love to talk during a session and some just love the silence as we breathe together and hold one another. Every one is different. When you book with me, you can tell me what your preferences are. And if you don't know what you want, that's no problem. I can suggest things or we can make it up as we go along.
