A WOMAN has revealed how she pays a stranger $80 (£58) an hour to cuddle her – despite being married.
Saskia began using Cuddlist, a service where you can hire a professional ‘cuddler’, after moving to New York to pursue an acting career.
Being away from her husband Arthur for long periods of time left Saskia craving human touch leading her to regularly book in cuddling sessions with a professional.
Speaking to Love Don’t Judge, she explains: “Many people would think that it’s odd that I access cuddling services because I’m married.
“But screw it, I don’t really care what anybody else thinks. I love affection and I love how it makes my body feel.”
Saskia says that Arthur has no problem with her going to someone else for a snug.
"I’m 99 per cent sure he does not get jealous of cuddling because I check in with him, and talk to him about it,” she says.
“He’s more protective of me than jealous so as long as I’m safe it’s good.”
Arthur agrees, adding: “Saskia and I have a monogamous relationship but I don’t feel like cuddling violates the integrity of that.
“Saskia likes a lot of contact and she’s very comfortable around other people and she’s very affectionate.
“When we’re together we cuddle all the time so I can understand why she would need that human contact.”
As for the professional cuddler, business is booming with 200 requests coming in a week on Cuddlist.
He says: “I have all kinds of clients that are all kinds of ages.
“Men, women, older clients, younger clients that are there for personal touch and human interaction and that’s what I value about it.”
And Saskia says that you shouldn’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
“I would recommend every single person try cuddling because it makes you feel human,” she says.
“I’m not breaking an agreement with my husband, I’m not breaking the law, I'm just having something that’s really yummy and great.”
