Hey there! Do you LOVE to snuggle? Are you a natural nurturer? Is cradling others deeply in your arms part of your “life’s calling”? Do you enjoy giving and receiving massage ( as long as your boundaries are respected )? Is cuddling in a puppy pile your idea of a dream job? If you answered yes — then we may have the perfect job for 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 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.
Note for male applicants: We require all Snuggle Partners to be able to happily snuggle with both male and female clients. Also, it is a sad, but true fact that our male Snuggle Partners rarely get booked for appointments. So, for our male Snuggle Partners, this work more of a hobby than a part-time job. If these items are OK with you, then we would love to have you onboard!
We also have a Private Snuggle Partner position, 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 job application. In this case, clients who ask to see our Private Snuggle Partners are sent a password for the Private Snuggle Partners page. This password will be changed once a month and clients will have to opt-in every month to maintain access. This will limit the number of people who will have access to this area of the website. People who ask for the password will be highly interested in the service.
