Looking for a job? How about being a professional cuddler in a cuddling studio?

Samantha Hess, 29, made headlines last year for her strictly non-sexual cuddling service in Portland, Ore. Now, she is looking for a brick-and-mortar location to set up shop, and she is hiring six new employees who will go through a 40-hour cuddle training session.

Cuddle sessions at Cuddle Up to Me are offered in 30- or 60-minute increments - $35 for 30 minutes and $60 for 60 minutes.

Hess also offers overnight cuddle sessions with a prerequisite of at least one previous 60-minute cuddle session.

Cuddlees are of all genders, sizes and relationship statuses - anyone 18 or older, from people who are disabled to those who are simply lonely.

Hess meets her clients at a neutral location before agreeing to a cuddling session, and all customers must sign a waiver that lays out the ground rules: Both parties will remain fully clothed, and cleanliness and adequate hygiene are required.
