Platonic Intimacy With Professional Cuddling


Have you heard of professional cuddling? Yes, it’s real! And it’s the perfect way to upgrade your dating life, according to James Preece and his guest, Laura Just on The Love Machine podcast’s latest episode, “Snuggle Up! How Professional Cuddling Can Upgrade Your Love Life


Laura Just, the founder of Lekker Cuddles, is a professional cuddler who provides a safe and nurturing experience for individuals looking for platonic intimacy. In the episode, James and Laura discuss the different benefits of cuddling therapy on mental health, relationships, and life satisfaction.

But wait, before you run the other way, let’s talk about what it actually is. Professional cuddling involves a trained practitioner providing clients with non-sexual intimacy without any romantic overtones. It’s a way for individuals to experience the benefits of touch and maintain human connection in a safe, warm, and respectful environment.

The episode starts by discussing how clients fill out a form explaining why they’re seeking a session with platonic intimacy. These sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each client, and they take place in the speaker’s home, providing a comforting and homely environment. However, as the speaker’s business grows, they’re finding it harder to meet client demands, especially when it comes to clients outside of Amsterdam.

The session starts with tea, easing into the presence of one another while going over consent models and specific boundaries. Clients may have specific expectations or may be unsure of what they want. Still, the speaker expertly leads the session, presenting a catalogue of 18 different cuddle positions to work with, ensuring that each session is unique and tailored to each individual’s specific needs.

The host and Laura go on to discuss how professional cuddling has been shown to have numerous benefits, including increased quality of sleep, confidence, communication skills, and a reduction in anxiety and depression. The speaker has received feedback from male clients about how the intimate setting has helped them become more confident in making someone feel good. Furthermore, clients feel the effects of cuddling therapy immediately after one session. Platonic intimacy can be a wonderful thing.

The episode is informative and engaging, and Laura’s professional expertise and passionate advocacy for cuddling therapy are clear throughout. Along with discussing the benefits of cuddling, the podcast also addresses the barriers that people face when it comes to seeking and accessing therapy.

The speaker offers short sessions to keep the cost low, making cuddling therapy more accessible to all. Additionally, she encourages the idea of professional cuddling being recognized by insurance companies, and its role in the mental wellness and therapy industry.

The episode even goes as far as discussing how professional cuddling could be incorporated into employee wellness programs, suggesting that professional cuddling could work hand in hand with traditional psychotherapies in powerful ways.


Platonic Intimacy Solves Many Problems


The podcast sheds light on the societal problem that many people experience of being touch-deprived, especially during the pandemic. The speaker explains how professional cuddling can restore touch therapy and foster healthy communication skills, which are fundamental in any relationship. The importance of learning what one wants from touch and learning how to communicate it confidently is a significant aspect that contributes to improved communication skills and self-worth.

So, if you’re feeling a little isolated or touch-deprived, The Love Machine’s “How Professional Cuddling Can Upgrade Your Love Life” episode is definitely worth a listen. It’s informative, engaging, and it might just change the way you view platonic intimacy, self-love, and communication skills.
