An Oregon woman is cashing in on her love for the act of cuddling.
Samantha Hess, who considers herself a "professional cuddler" and says she "literally could cuddle 24 hours a day," charges $60 per hour to cuddle with a growing list of clients.
She says her services are aimed at anyone who is a "touch-driven person," but cautions that clients must keep things appropriate.
"The areas that I touch and that can be touched on me are very simple," she told KPTV. "The guideline is basically anything that it would be OK to touch on a child is what's OK in this kind of environment."
"I require each client meet with me in person in a public place so we can sit down and chat," Hess added. "They can ask me whatever business or personal questions they want and I can learn why they're seeking my services and ensure that they're looking for what I offer and nothing more."
According to KPTV, Portland Police say her business comes close to the state's definition of sexual contact, but the don't currently plan to charge her with anything.
