Q: What service does Embrace provide?
A: I offer fully clothed, completely platonic cuddle sessions of 1 hour to 5 hours. The goal of a session is to help us in those moments in life where we either need more touch or simply don’t want to take anything from the amazing people in our worlds to get what we need. I want you to know that you matter and you are loved without the guilt, shame, and judgement our culture can sometimes bring us when we try to reach out physically. The cost of this lovely service $100/hr for a Certified Cuddle session.
Q: What happens in a cuddle session?
A: During a cuddle session we can hug, sit, lie, dance, sing, read, watch a movie or play games. This is your time to receive the love and attention that you deserve. We may hold hands and chat sitting close, lie and cuddle big spoon/little spoon style, or try some of the many poses I offer. I will customize the session to make you comfortable, relaxed, and feeling the sort of love a mother gives to her child. This is in no way sexual, but is intended to give you the feeling that you are not alone, and that the world is a good place. We all need to feel the warmth and closeness of another to feel whole, and I am here to help you achieve that in whatever way makes us both feel comfortable. You will receive the sort of touch needed to help bring you the comfort that will encourage you to feel your best in each session.
Q: Can I talk during my session?
A: This is 100% up to you. If you are inclined to share with me, I am happy to listen, but it’s really whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. What I want is to offer you a safe space to feel loved, understood, and appreciated. Many of us have plenty of people who will tell us what we’re doing wrong or who seem to know how to be us better than we do. In our space I am here to listen without trying to fix it. I believe that with support we can all find the answers we are looking for from within.
Q: What about “natural reactions?”
A: Due to the family oriented interactions I strive for, this is rare. From time to time this may happen though. If it does I ask you to shift your body or change poses so that it does not become a focus of the session and so any physical arousal is not in contact with myself. I am great at being the “big spoon.”
Q: What should I wear for my appointments?
A: I recommend you wear something you feel comfortable in. Pajamas, workout shorts, tank tops, and t-shirts are acceptable—or just whatever you are wearing that day, as long as you are comfortable. Please keep in mind that nudity of any kind is not acceptable for this service—on your part or mine. Cuddling sessions are based on unconditional loving touch only (never sexual touch). I have a minimum clothing requirement of workout shorts and a tank top. No undergarments may be exposed below the belly button.
Q: What happens at my first appointment?
A: Before your session I ask that you brush your teeth, arrive in freshly laundered clothing (or bring some to change into), be free of scents, and have a valid state/government issued identification with you. When I arrive I will make a copy of your Id and have you fill out some paperwork. We will then sit down and chat for a few minutes to get to know one another. You will have a chance to ask any questions you might have, and I like to get to know you a little as well in order to feel safe and to help customize a session for you.
Q: Are tips accepted?
A: No, tipping is not accepted. Your gratefulness is very much appreciated. If you are happy with the benefits of your session, let’s set up another one.
Q: How much does a session cost?
A: Your initial (and required) consultation is free and no obligation. A session will run you $100.00/hr. Session lengths are available in any amount between 1 hour and 5 hours.
