About Andra Light
**As of 02/19/21, I am taking in-person clients for two-hour minimum appointments. I still have a limited number of appointments per week to limit my own exposure and community spread. I am not currently accepting virtual/video session requests. Incalls and outcalls available. Half of session cost required up front for booking. Please tell me a little about your quarantining behavior when you send me a message.**
As we begin to emerge out of our pandemic cocoons, it will take time to reacquaint ourselves with even the gentlest of touches from those outside our bubble. I want to honor this potent threshold with you as we rediscover what types of touch we enjoy and how we can move forward in intimacy with a fresh start.
For this reason, my cuddle sessions ease into the touch experience, beginning with a light-hearted and understanding conversation about boundaries and moving into breathing exercises and meditation. After that, we can move to a comfortable location for touch experiments and play.
My sessions stay within the guidelines listed on the site, which means clothing remains on (tank top and gym shorts at minimum) for the whole session.
I’m most interested in engaging with clients who are new to cuddling, working through fear of themselves or others, processing touch-related traumas, or entering a new phase of their lives. As I am queer myself, I am also very interested in working with LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals.
A little bit about me: My name is Andra, and I am the founder of Touch to Save the World, co-founder of High Priestesses, a trained Cuddlist cuddler, postpartum doula, and the author of four books. I have studied and practiced energy work, acupressure, acroyoga, and Aikido, which all culminate in my cuddle practice. I practice play, experience, and sensation in all areas of my life.
My favorite cuddle sessions feel like a workout and involve holding, squeezing, and light massage.

(Discounts available for self-identified women, LGBTQIA+, POC, students, and other professional cuddlers upon request.)
Session information from Andra Light
Once you submit a request, we can either meet first in a public place or you can come directly to my community house in SW Portland (97219) where there is plenty of street parking. Take off your shoes and make yourself comfortable in the private lounge space piled with blankets and set up just for you. Afterward, we will move into the opening agreement and a gentle discussion about boundaries. It’s important that both of us check in with our bodies and feel confident saying “no” if something begins to feel uncomfortable.
After that, I’ll give you time to change into your pajamas or gym shorts before we enter into some breathing exercises that invite you to be curious about your body. If touch is comfortable at this point, we might hug or hold hands. If not, we can go at the pace comfortable for you.
Once you orient yourself to the space, I let you guide the session, prompting you to listen for what your body needs and wants. I am a very engaged and athletic cuddler and enjoy caressing your hair while you hold the small of my back, for instance, or curling my leg around yours while moving it gently up and down. These slow, methodical movements enhance sensitivity and sensation, leaving you with the warmth of intimacy even inside platonic engagement.
I book cuddle appointments between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on any day of the week. While I prefer to meet in my private cuddle space in SW Portland, I am willing to negotiate outcalls for an additional fee (fee waived for people with disabilities).
To meet out in public first, I charge half my regular rate.
I do not accept same-day appointments.
While my cuddle space is private with its own bathroom, the larger household does have cats. If you have a cat allergy and live in the greater Portland area, I will waive my travel fees to come to you.
Tips are optional but appreciated.
Your session begins at the time scheduled or when you arrive, whichever is earlier.
