Curling up with a box of pizza on Valentines Day is so last year. This year, Samantha Hess, a professional cuddler, would say it’s the year to cuddle up to a complete stranger.
Hess, the founder of Cuddle Me Up, a business that provides platonic touch for clients through cuddling sessions, has planned the first-ever Cuddle Con for this Valentines Day. According to CNN, Cuddle Con, located in Portland, Oregon, bills itself as the first-ever cuddling convention. More than 100 people plan on attending this 12-hour platonic cuddling session.
Hess believes 2015 is the year of the cuddles and hopes people will start to see the positives of platonic touch.
