Meet Jacqueline Samuel she makes a living by snuggling in bed with complete strangers, nothing else, no sex just spooning in bed for a few hours, 7 days a few and $$$!! Is this a profession or is a a cover-up for prostitution?
Apparently it isn’t and Jacqueline Samuel really charges strange men and women to snuggle in bed with her. The session last from 45 to 90 minutes and the prices start at $50.00 up to $$90.00. But does this pay the rent? well not exactly so she is into real estate as well.
29-year-old Jacqueline Samuel from Penfield, New York, began her company Snuggery on June, and has been a complete success ever since. Before a customer get a chance to cuddle with her they meet before the session and check if both parties are confortable for what is next.
The customers who are mostly men are recommended to wear loose clothes, pajamas being the perfect choice. Once at the session client can talk if he or she likes to and if something comes up (sexually arouse) that completely Ok, however no sex is included as a matter of fact sex and nudity are absolutely one million percent not permitted.
So how on earth did Ms. Samuel came up with this idea? She has a Bachelors Degree in Brain and Cognitive Science from The University of Rochester and will be getting her Master’s Degree in Social Work pretty soon, Jacqueline believes the power of touch heals you in every way.
From Jacquie’s The Snuggery..
When we are engaged in touch, our brains produce more serotonin and oxytocin. Both of these chemicals make us calm and happy and contribute to an overall sense of well-being and relaxation that is pleasurable and healthy. Touch demonstrably stimulates regions of our brain that are known to produce pleasant, pleasurable feelings. Studies have also shown that touch reduces stress and anxiety for up to five days after it occurs. Stress and anxiety both aggravate numerous physical and mental health conditions.
Engaging in touch reduces the amount of cortisol we produce. Cortisol is known as the “stress hormone” which suppresses the immune system. This is why we tend to get sick more often when we are stressed. Touch can play an important role in reducing stress and strengthening our immune systems.
Touch can lower blood pressure. This can play an enormous role in the prevention and treatment of numerous health conditions. Additionally, going without touch for three days demonstrably increased stress and anxiety levels. Touch has actually proven to be more effective than verbal social support at reducing harmful effects of stress such as elevated blood pressure, cortisol levels, and heart rate. The research is clear. Humans need touch to thrive.
