Okay, I get the no sexual activity think, but I have to wonder what their policy is re: stationary boners.
Classier than boners drawn on loose leaf.

I'm the same age as these people, and I get a huge sexual repression vibe from the cuddle community. If you're in need of physical contact with another human, form a relationship however deep you need it. How is this different from a 1960s Love In, except there is no sex here?
Next to open up in the midwest:
-Bakeries you can breathe the fresh bread smell but no eating.
-Cigar shops where you just hold the unlit cigar.
-A Disneyland made up of just Epcot.
45$ for a half hour of hugs, I went into the wrong business. Thing there's a market wanting hugs from middle age pasty white guys?
My time in the queer/kink community of Seattle has led me to find sources of free cuddles in all the varieties I want, from intimate with a possible future partner in a mature, rational fashion to weirdly immature and creepy par excellence. All depends on the kind of strange my damaged emotions are up for.
But for those of us who aren't brave enough to just come right out as a queerbo fruitcake like myself, there's this.
I fucking love this town sometimes.
West Seattle? Yuck.

Woah. I work a few blocks from Cuddle Up to Me.
I've actually been on a few tinder dates where all the girls want to do is cuddle, maybe fall asleep in the afternoon for a bit. In one case it led to sex but the other two were just cuddling. Looks like it's a mostly female business.. I might put in my resume. 45 bucks an hour to lay around would be pretty tits
I did! It's really not much of a stretch. My main job is a facilitator for an individual with Autism, but I still handle the daily caregiving stuff just like anybody else on staff. Lots of deep pressure, things like that. Plus I've got the certifications of a bouncer in the state of Oregon, and still do door work on the side. I just put in a very nice cover letter. Fingers crossed!
... hope you don't get any Cuddly Transmitted Diseases.

The application has been subject to numerous critiques. According to Alex Sevigny, a Canadian communications expert at McMaster University, for CBC Hamilton, the app commodifies intimacy and makes a private activity public.[http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/news/want-to-cuddle -there-s-an-app-for-that-meet-cuddlr-1.2779450] Kate Bellamy, a journalist from Metro News UK, criticizes the app for encouraging people to disrespect personal boundaries, which could potentially affect the lives of non-users as well.[http://metro.co.uk/2014/09/22/keep-your-hugs-the-new-cuddlr- app-sounds-seriously-creepy-4877964/] UWIRE writes that only people desperate for human touch would turn to technology to fulfill this human need with a stranger, and that, therefore, the application is unsafe.[http://go.galegroup.com/ps/i.do?id=GALE%7CA384793115&v=2.1 &u=otta77973&it=r&p=AONE&sw=w&asid=cbdf7ba275abd994d06164023a84af3 8]
