I see physical intimacy as a vital and beautiful part of the human experience, and I’m excited to work with you to create a space where we can both enjoy the healing power of touch, trust and acceptance. We could all use a little more of that in our lives.

I’m here for you. Whether you want to talk while cuddling or experiment with different types of touch or be silent and focus on being in the moment, we can co-create a session that feels good for you. If you don’t know what you want, that’s okay too! I’m here as a friendly, open, non-judgemental, and accepting partner in your explorations of yourself and your needs.

This work is important and personal for me, and I recognize it is the same for you. I do my best to bring 100% of myself to appointments so that I can be fully present for you and give you the time and attention you deserve.

I look forward to meeting you!

Session information from Emily S

What to expect
Once you request a session with me, I will send you an email within 24 hours to introduce myself and ask you a few questions to determine whether or not we are a good fit. We will decide on a date and session length that feels good for you and once I receive your 50% downpayment I will share my phone number and the address of the cuddle location.

I hold all my sessions at a wellness studio in Annapolis which provides a quiet, comfortable and professional space for appointments. After you arrive for your appointment, I’ll orient you to the space and give you the opportunity to change and grab a glass of water or cup of tea. We’ll take a few minutes to go over boundaries and guidelines and then I’ll walk us through a short “cuddling warmup” exercise designed to get us comfortable with each other and the space. After that, the session is mostly up to you and what would feel good for you in the moment. Some clients like to cuddle in silence or while listening to music. Others like to talk or watch a movie or TV show. We may sit or lie on the couch, hug, hold hands, explore touching each other’s face/hair/hands, trade massage, etc. The sky is the limit (within the boundaries set by the Code of Conduct, of course).

In the 1-2 days following your session, I will send a follow-up email asking how you are feeling and giving you the opportunity to book another appointment, if you so desire. Your reply will signal the end of our conversation, unless you choose to book another appointment.

How to prepare
Dress comfortably in a minimum of shorts and a T-shirt. Some clients prefer to change into comfortable clothing once they arrive, which is perfectly okay. I will be similarly dressed. Feel free to arrive up to 5 minutes before your appointment to change and situate yourself in the space.

Safety and guidelines
My hard limits (non-negotiable) in addition to those set forward by the Code of Conduct are 1) No kissing on the mouth 2) No touching anywhere that would be covered by a bikini (for women) or bathing suit shorts (for men). I reserve the right to pause a session if I feel the need to clarify these boundaries or end a session if I feel they continue to be crossed after multiple reminders.

Similar to a therapist, if I see you out in public I will not approach you or address you. This is to maintain your privacy. If you choose to approach me and interact with me, I will happily say hello.

I ask for a non-refundable downpayment of 50% of the session cost upon booking. I typically accept payment through PayPal but am open to other options if that is easier for you.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions about anything that was not covered here. Thanks!
