What is it?
Are you sick of cuddling your pillow on bad days? Touch is one of the most important parts of our lives.

Cuddlist.com is a rescue mission for people who are looking for consensual therapeutic touch from a professional cuddle practitioner. You can avail of this service irrespective of your personality, past, sexual orientation, race or any other factor.
Why is it cool?
- Much like meditation and mindfulness, professional therapeutic touch through cuddling is healing and transformative when it happens in a respectful and emotionally safe way.
- The cuddlers abide by the Bible– most cuddle companies require employees to read it. The Cuddle Sutra – an extensive look at platonic cuddling and its variations is often read too.
- Professional cuddling could reiterate the importance of increasing physical touch for some people.
- Cuddling helps overcome stress and anxiety because being wanted and respected aids in a happier and more positive feeling. In addition to the great feeling because of oxytocin release, being loved and listened to by another helps people feel more confident in social interactions.
- Cuddling improves and in many cases helps people fight off insomnia and sleep better.

Why does it have future growth potential?
We live in a fast-paced world and more often than not it becomes really difficult to find time for oneself to relax. We replace intimacy with more time at work, trying to chase our goals. Filling our time with an endless stream of doing. Humans should start calling themselves doings. However, we forget we are beings that need physical touch to lead a healthy life. Professional cuddling does not demand you to commit to another. It allows you to carry on with your busy life, and only take out an hour or two, whenever you want, to fulfil the void created by a lack of physical attention. Will we get in touch again?
RATE & COMMENT
Wow, professional cuddling service never thought that something like that would come into existence! A lot of lonely people nowadays, so it could have growth potential. But I wonder, isn’t it risky because some people want more than cuddling? Isn’t this a great liability?
This is ‘intimately’ sympathetic. It is difficult to imagine people against the cuddling idea. At the same time, I hope all participants abide to the rules. Sometime ‘human nature’ can be, well, somewhat unruly. Thanks, Shirin. nice to have you here. Carl
Interesting article. Cuddling services are not necessarily new though, they exist for quite a while and didn’t have any relevant growth in the past few years. I think that may be because it’s a service that not everyone is able to pay for. It’s a luxury and I think many people find other ways to achieve heal from physical touch. That makes the target group for this service pretty narrow and limits its growth potential. The only way I can see this service persist is if it gets recognised as a form of therapy and health insurance covers it.
