  1. I want to be a certified cuddler and work for you here in Portland! I just learned about this and I congratulate you on this movement towards consent and platonic touch. What is my first step?

  2. In your experience, How have persons dealing with issues related to sexual abuse tolerate the participation in Certified Cuddling sessions?

    • Our hands on training program goes over these types of situations in detail to ensure our professionals have all the training and experience to ensure the safety ans comfort of all parties involved. Without proper training it can be extremely damaging for someone who has experienced trauma of any kind.

    • We would love to have you join us. If you are looking for our online certification it is important that you first thoroughly read this entire page: Online Certification Requirements

    • For liability purposes we are currently only able to work with folks 18 or older. There are a few volunteer programs at hospitals around the country, but I’m not aware of any certification for paid work to cuddle with babies or children. If you find any we would love to help pass information along.

  3. Does the Cuddlers works as independent contractors and need a tax ID number? Can Senior Citizens in good health become Certified Cuddlers and if so, do they have any clients?

    • With every company that currently certifies folks in this field you are considered a small business owner or independent contractor as far as I am aware. None of them employ the people listed on their sites. Anyone 18 or over is welcome to work in this field. Everyone has different wants and needs. I don’t see why an upper age limit would be necessary. Everyone is welcome.

  4. How do you advertise or aquire clients? It seems to me like that would be the hardest part of it all is actually aquiring a client base. I’m sure many ppl are hesitant to this type of thing & the ppl open to it are the ones that are looking for more than what’s allowed or than what I’d wanna offer. I’d be interested in doing this IF I knew I could establish a client base that’d at least cover the fees I’d be out for training.

    • A big part of what drives appropriate clientele to us is avoiding advertising in places that would be socially acceptable for people who offer the important but completely seperate sexually oriented services. We do cover marketing in our program as well as ongoing support to ensure you have every chance of success. While no one can guarantee how many clients one may find, we will be here to support and guide you to success every step of the way.

  5. Will I be asked to stop cuddling if I obtain an erection while cuddling?
    I wouldn’t use it but it could happen.

    • As long as you are comfortable moving yourself and your thoughts to avoid any misconduct this shouldn’t cause any issues. It’s rare that arousal happens due to the nature of the sessions, but if it does happen we ask you to simply move yourself so the professional is not in contact with this part of you. We are great at being the big spoon (:
