Become a Snuggle Partner!

Do you LOVE to snuggle? Are you a natural nurturer? Is cradling others deeply in your arms part of your “life’s calling”? Are you a professional at providing nurturing support? If you answered yes — then we would love to hear from you!

If you LOVE to snuggle, but also are great at gently asserting your boundaries, and you can speak your truth easily and respectfully — WE WANT TO MEET YOU! Fill out our Snuggle Partner Contractor Application here. We are interested in both female and male Snuggle Partners. This would be part-time work as an independent 1099 contractor. You are responsible for paying taxes on your earnings. A 1099 report of your earnings will be sent at the end of January of each new year.

Private Snuggle Partners: We also have a way to make your profile more private. We call this being a Private Snuggle Partner. If you prefer that your photo and bio not be used directly on the website, please indicate that you want to be a Private Snuggle Partner in your contractor application. In this case, clients who ask to see our Private Snuggle Partners are sent a password for the Private Snuggle Partners page. The requirement to use a password to view your profile will limit the number of people who will have access to this area of the website. However, people who ask for the password will be highly interested in the service.
