About Paley

I believe that touch is the royal road to the heart, and it is the bedrock of mental health. When our needs for touch are being met, we feel healthier, we experience more joy, we care more deeply about ourselves and others, and we are more creative and optimistic about life. We feel confident in who we are, and the world matters to us.

When we are not getting enough touch, we are prone to all sorts of misery. We may feel depressed, empty, angry, numb, bored with life, or we may even feel like there’s no point to living. We are also more prone to addictive behaviors.

In a society that supports isolation and teaches us that we have to do everything on our own, it can be very difficult to get our touch needs met. This makes cuddling a powerful medicine!

I am here to give you an experience of safe, warm touch in a relaxed environment. There are a lot of different ways to cuddle! Maybe you just want to be lovingly held by someone who isn’t going to judge you. Or maybe you want to learn more about boundaries and intimacy by exploring touch that you’re not as familiar with (have you ever gotten an ear massage?). Maybe you want to experience the CUDDLE ATTACK (Where you are swarmed by my large collection of stuffed animals and beanie babies). The experience is about you and your needs. We can be as creative or as simple as you want to be.

Session information from Paley

Once you reach out and make a request, I’ll follow up with you in a phone call where we can talk a little bit about what you’re looking for and see if we’re a good fit for each other.

Once we’ve decided to meet, we’ll negotiate the meeting location and time. I do cuddle sessions in my home in Oakland, or I can come to you (for a slightly higher fee to cover travel expenses). The ideal setting is a low-key, relatively clean environment that feels cozy and inviting. I have a space like this in my home. If I’m coming to you, I’m happy to bring pillows, blankets, stuffed animals to your house to make it more cozy if that’s your thing 🙂

I take payment at the start of the session. I accept cash, PayPal or Venmo.
