I’ve always loved hugging and cuddling. I’m a natural cuddler and it feels great to be able to offer this passion of mine for our mutual benefit and the benefit of the world. Also, I love helping others and helping make our world a better place. I’ve been a dedicated truth-seeker and change agent for over 10 years. During that time I have come to understand the massive interconnectedness of all our world’s problems. Their potential solutions appear also to be just as interconnected. My natural talents and interests and my search for personal healing and for how to help heal the world brought me to professional cuddling.
I believe positive touch is a powerful healing modality that can help anyone who is willing to try it. Personally, I have experienced a reduction in depression, anxiety, and addiction from positive touch. I have also seen in myself how positive touch has played a role in strengthening my compassion, increasing my energy and vitality, reducing fear, and helping me to engage more courageously to be my most authentic self and in helping me to bring more love and healing into the world.
I feel truly honored to offer positive caring touch through professional cuddling. I love creating a safe space to help anyone explore platonic positive touch in whatever way feels comfortable to both of us. I welcome all people! All genders, racial identities, orientations, sizes, etc. I look forward to meeting you!
Session information from Travis
For each session, you will be encouraged to lead and express your authentic desires for connection. I will help guide you as you are interested. I am here for you and genuinely look forward to learning more about the kind of interactions you are looking for.
We can chat with each other, we can talk about deep things, we can talk about light things, we can cuddle without talking at all, we can talk without cuddling, we can eye gaze, we can make some food together and eat and cuddle, we can cuddle and watch something together, we can cuddle and play a game together, we can work out together, etc. I enjoy providing applied pressure touch (essentially amateur massage) if that is something you are interested in. I am continuously studying holistic health and would be happy to share things that I’ve learned and provide assistance for your journey towards greater holistic health. I also enjoy offering general support as a peer who has struggled in my own ways to find healing. If you are interested in exploring any of these healing modalities with me, just ask! There are so many options to what our session can look like. Whatever feels good to you (and to me) will be lovely. If you are unsure of what you want, we can talk about that until you figure something out. There is no pressure and it is a safe space to explore your true interests, feelings, and thoughts.
I offer cuddling sessions either in your home, a public meeting space, or at my home in Milwaukie, OR, in the community space we set up. I offer a free optional 30-min. initial consultation to anyone who wants this (either by phone or in person). Basically this would just be a chance to get to know each other a bit, talk about cuddling, and I can answer any initial questions you may have. We can also just start out with our first session. Either way, I’ll provide more information about boundaries and consent before we cuddle to help set a safe container for authentic and comfortable connection. Before our first session, please read the Cuddlist Code of Conduct and be prepared to follow these agreements for our session.
For outcalls further than a 15-minute drive from my place in Milwaukie, I charge $30/hr for drive time. These fees do not apply to any handicapped clients. Please put away any pets with aggressive tendencies before I arrive. Otherwise, I love friendly animals and may even feel comfortable including them in the session if that is your wish (and theirs of course).
For incalls, there is plenty of parking. Also, I am within a few blocks of a bus stop so mass transit is a good option for transportation here. Please do not bring any pets to my location. There are no pets inside in the house so it should be free of any pet allergens. There is a small friendly dog that resides on the property and he will be inside another space when you arrive.
I prefer no artificial fragrances (essential oils are welcome) in our session.
I accept cash and checks for payment at the beginning or end of each session.
If you need to cancel, please do so at least 24 hours before the session via e-mail or phone. There is no charge for these cancellations. If an emergency pops up and you need to cancel in the 24 hours before the session, just let me know and there is no charge. If this happens repeatedly (more than twice), I’ll start charging the full session rate for each cancellation under 24 hours before the session. If you don’t show up and don’t communicate, I will expect the full session rate to be paid.
If I am feeling uncomfortable before a session for some reason and am not certain I want to participate in a cuddle session, I will call the session off. I will do this at least 24 hours before a session. Cuddle sessions are designed to be a full ‘yes’ for both the client and practitioner and I look forward to co-creating these interactions!
If you are interested in setting up a session or have any questions, just contact me via e-mail and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Most of the time this will be within 24-48 hours.
I look forward to connecting! I wish for you a great day!
