• How are we addressing the Coronavirus risk?
  • Snuggle Salon is taking the COVID-19 outbreak VERY seriously.


    First, it is important to be informed:

  • Current Coronavirus Infection Data


    Snuggle Salon has implemented extensive office disinfection and health safety protocols.

  • Healthy Appointments
    • We are using surgical-grade hand-sanitizer
    • Our Snuggle Partners are taking their body temperature.
      1. – You can request that your Snuggle Partner provide their body temperature for the previous 3 days.
        – Please feel free to inquire about your Snuggle Partner’s general health and risk exposure.
    • You can ask your Snuggle Partner to wear an N95 Mask. Your Snuggle Partner may choose to wear a mask ( even if you do not ask ).
    • Your Snuggle Partner may ask you to wear an N95 Mask. We have them on-hand in our office spaces. Please note: Our mask supplies are limited so if you have your own mask, please bring it.
  • Disinfection of our office spaces
    • We are using 99% isopropyl alcohol to disinfect doorknobs, handles, AC remotes, heater and light switches and computer and mice.
    • During each appointment a freshly laundered sheet will cover the snuggle space to make sure there is no cross-contamination.
  • What The Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said today, March 9, 2020
    • “We now know more about who is at risk. The average age of death for people from coronavirus is 80. The average age of people who need medical attention is age 60.” Conservatively, this means that people under the age of approximately 50 are NOT AT SIGNIFICANT RISK. So, please try not to panic.

    Paying your Snuggle Partner

    Again, please see your Appointment Confirmation email. This is the first email that you will receive from us after you book the appointment. It is the ONLY email that will contain this information. The subject line of the Appointment Confirmation email will read, for example: “New Appointment: Snuggle Session – 2.0 hours ( with Melanie in Campbell ) on Friday, October 22, 2021 7:00pm PDT”

  • What happens during a snuggle session?
  • A snuggle session consists of first making sure you and your Snuggle Partner are on the same page about the rules outlined in the Client Integrity Agreement. After that, what happens is up to you and your Snuggle Partner. You can ask for the kind of touch and human affection that you would enjoy – this may include snuggling, spooning, cradling, nuzzling, etc. Your Snuggle Partner can suggest different cuddle positions. Snuggle Partners are professionals and are familiar with the cuddle poses in The Cuddle Sutra. You can ask them to be your “Snuggle Guide”. You can also ask for specific snuggle poses that you think you would enjoy.

    The following should be understood, but just to be clear, the services that we provide at Snuggle Salon are done under the following guidelines:

    1. A client may ask for any type of physical affection except sex, nudity or touching off limits parts of the body as outlined in the Client Integrity Agreement.
    2. After the client makes a request, The Snuggle Partner is free to say yes or no to the request.
    3. The services we provide at Snuggle Salon MUST be enjoyable to BOTH parties – both the client AND the Snuggle Partner.

    The reason for these guidelines is simple: This is how real life works. Snuggle Salon is designed as a laboratory where human beings can practice asking for what they want and saying yes to only things they would actually enjoy.

  • Can I ask my Snuggle Partner to wear certain clothes?
  • Please do not ask your Snuggle Partner to wear special clothes unless you have an allergy to wool or something like that. Your Snuggle Partner will wear the clothes she/he feels most comfortable in. Naturally, it is very important that your Snuggle Partner feel comfortable. If you Snuggle Partner is relaxed — the session will be more enjoyable for both of you.

  • “At your location” travel costs
  • The cost for an out-call session is $110/hour to compensate your Snuggle Partner for travel time.

    Mileage Costs
    If an “At your location” appointment, is beyond 10-15 minutes away from the Snuggle Partner’s location, there will be additional travel costs at 75¢ per mile. Your Snuggle Partner will let you know if travel costs will be involved in your session costs and how much costs these will be. These expenses can be paid on the Travel Expenses page prior to the start of the session. Thank you for your understanding and willingness to compensate your Snuggle Partner’s for her time and travel costs, while making your snuggle session more convenient for you!

    Session Length for “at your location” appointments
    Additionally, we require the session length for “at your location” sessions to be twice the length of the travel time required for your Snuggle Partner to travel to you. So, if it takes an hour of travel time, for your Snuggle Partner, then the session length should be at least 2 hours or longer.

  • How does this work?
  • Please see the How It Works page for a detailed description of how our service works — including how to schedule an appointment online, payment methods, and how your Snuggle Partner will be contacting you.

  • What should I wear?
  • Wear something that is soft and comfortable. Work-out clothes are a good choice. A t-shirt and sweatpants/ pajama pants also work well. A minimum of shorts and a t-shirt is required for you and your Snuggle Partner. Underwear or boxer shorts or very short shorts are NOT ALLOWED. You can change after you arrive, if necessary. Please change in the restroom and not in front of your Snuggle Partner. Please don’t wear perfume or cologne.
