BENEFITS OF CUDDLING OR A CUDDLE SESSION

The truth is many of us don’t get enough touch in our lives. Cuddling and human touch have been scientifically proven to increase oxytocin levels – nicknamed the “bonding or feel-good hormone”. This chemical reaction, released in a Cuddle Session can help with some of the following:

  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Help reduce anxiety and stress
  • Makes you happier (thank you dopamine and sarotonin)
  • Help you sleep better

COMMON CUDDLE SESSION QUESTIONS

What Should I Wear? How Should I Prepare?

Wear what you feel comfortable in. Many clients dress in workout wear, pjs, shorts and a comfortable top – whatever it is that makes you feel relaxed and at ease. Nudity of any kind by either party is not a part of this experience and is not acceptable. Cuddle sessions are based on unconditional, loving touch – never sexual touch.

Here’s How To Prepare For Your Session:

  • Dress comfortably
  • Come to each session showered, brushed teeth, clean clothing
  • Try to give yourself time after the session to not rush back to work or stress.

What If I Want To Stop The Session

If you become uncomfortable in any way at any time, we can stop the session. Just say so. Professional cuddling is 100% consent based and your WNW cuddlist wants you to speak up!  If you would like to end your session early for any reason simply let your practitioner know.

What If I Become Sexually Aroused?

Arousal is a natural response to all kinds of things including touch. If you become aroused in a session – the important thing is that neither client or practitioner respond to it in a manner intended to increase arousal. It can be acknowledged or not – but simply allowed to come and go without focus.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. WNW does not share client information or identity with anyone other than practitioners. Confidentiality is part of our code of conduct for all practitioners.
