The best things in life are free - in Seattle however, things are about to be re-invented.
Woman opens cuddle club, hug costs N9,000 for 30 minutes
A Seattle woman has started the state’s first cuddle club which will be a place where you can go to be held by a stranger.
All touching is non-sexual however, and if either party feels uncomfortable, the cuddle session ends immediately.
Club founder, Lashanna Williams is a certified member of Cuddle Professionals International, and started the Cuddle Club as a way to help others.
According to her official statement.
“Everyone needs to be held, and all of us benefit from more relaxing, meaningful human contact.”
She went on to explain the benefits of a good cuddle stating that it can reduce stress and anxiety, improve social skills, lower blood pressure, heart rate, and the risk of heart disease.
Cuddle sessions take place at the club’s location on Fauntleroy Square, and participants can lay on a couch, listen to music together, or just talk about the days events.
Membership is free and allows members to schedule cuddle sessions which cost $45 (about N9,000) for 30 minutes and $75 (about N15,000) for an hour.
So, would you pay N9,000 for a 30-minute hug? Share your thoughts with us.
