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 warmly 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 tailored to whatever you are comfortable with. We can be as creative or as simple as you want to be.  Some of my clients like to be little spoon the whole time – that’s cool too!

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 am not currently hosting cuddle sessions in my home, but I can come to you (for a slightly higher rate depending on how long the commute is). The ideal setting is wherever you feel comfortable.  When I have clients come to my house, we usually cuddle on my bed.  Couches work great too.  Even the floor, if you’ve got some comfy pillows.  Some clients have felt uncomfortable hosting in their own home for privacy reasons and have opted instead to rent a hotel room or an airbnb for the occasion.  That works just fine for me.

I accept payment via cash, PayPal or Venmo.

I’m excited to hear from you!
