Cuddles for cash: Meet the woman who gets paid to cuddle!

They say the best things in life are free, but when it comes to having a cuddle that may not necessarily be true!

Cuddling for cash is now a legitimate way to make a living and cuddles services are popping up all over the world.

So what exactly does a cuddle therapist do and how far are they prepared to go to make their clients happy?

Late Nights host Sara-Jayne King caught up with 'cuddle therapist' Madelon Guinazzo to find out.

The primary job of a 'cuddlist' is to understand what WE need to feel safe. We have a Code of Conduct, which is very clear for everyone, about what are the requirements of a session, what are the things that are not allowed.

Madelon Guinazzo , Founder of 'The Cuddlist'

Guinazzo says the service is a strictly non-sexual one, but admits that sometimes clients sometimes become aroused as a result of their body's natural reaction to intimate contact.

That kind of sexual arousal, in either gender, can be kind of like getting goosebumps, but it doesn't mean they have an intent.

Guinazzo also offered a 10% discount on her cuddlist training services for Cape Talk and 702 listeners.
