The Cuddle Sutra is a book which has pictures of a wide variety of snuggle poses that we use at Snuggle Salon. Most locations will have a hard copy of the book on hand, so you and your Snuggle Partner can review it together and have fun trying out new positions!

Paying your Snuggle Partner
Please see your Appointment Confirmation email for instructions on how to pay your Snuggle Partner. Most Snuggle Partners require payment in advance in order to confirm the appointment. Most Snuggle Partners use well-known payment processors such as: Venmo, CashApp, PayPal, Zelle, etc. A few Snuggle Partners prefer you bring cash to the appointment.
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”
A snuggle session ( also known as nurture therapy ) 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 really up to you and your Snuggle Partner. You can ask for the kind of non-sexual touch and physical 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” and show your their favorite snuggle poses. 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.
