How to Make Money from Cuddling

How to Make Money from Cuddling

Its no secret that cuddling makes people feel good. It’s a need that starts right from birth. We all know that babies can cry for hours with the only way to soothe them being giving them a cuddle. When you are single, this is something you would greatly miss. But should you only snuggle when you are in a relationship? Read on to find out.

Well, according to scientific research, cuddling can relieve pain, calm someone down, deepen your relationships, boost your immune system, make you feel awesome, reduce stress and it could also lower your risk of heart pressure.

As usual, in my quest for the search of unusual startup ideas for the developing world, I came across a pretty bizarre organisation operating in the USA and Canada called, Cuddle Party.

Cuddle Party was established in 2004 as a non-profit education organisation. According to the Cuddle Party’s website it is a playful social event designed for adults to explore communication, boundaries and affection. You can go to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. Shucks, you can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle!

I was very interested to see what kind of services Cuddle Party offers. And it’s not what you are thinking. According to the website, Cuddle Party is a new kind of workshop/social event that creates a safe place to give and receive non-sexual touch in a fun and affectionate setting. Cuddle Party lets you:

  • Learn clear and easy communication skills
  • Set limits simply and straightforwardly
  • Give and receive enjoyable non-sexual touch in a safe setting, where your boundaries are respected.

So, how much does it cost? Each local Cuddle Party Facilitator sets the fee or donation for their events.

What really happens at a snuggle party

The revelations were astounding. I was shocked at what happens in a snuggle party. Watch the video below and be the judge.

This is a great business idea in Kenya and it has great potential for being a successful business. It’s a creative way of building connections in a safe and secure environment while also fulfilling the natural need for a good old cuddle.

What you will need to start out

  • Properly trained cuddling Facilitators
  • A cozy room for people to cuddle
  • Licence to operate the cuddling business
  • Other things that I have not thought of.

Startup, and thank me later for bringing it to your attention! I wouldn’t mind a free cuddling session 😉
