A married woman has revealed how she pays a stranger to cuddle her – but her husband is okay with it.
Saskia began using Cuddlist, a service where you can hire a professional "cuddler", after moving to New York to pursue an acting career.
Her move resulted in being away from her husband, Arthur, for long periods of time and she began to crave physical contact.
So, the lonely wife began to hire professional cuddlers to fill her needs for affection – spending $80 (£58) an hour.
Speaking to Love Don’t Judge, she explains: “Many people would think that it’s odd that I access cuddling services because I’m married.
“But screw it, I don’t really care what anybody else thinks. I love affection and I love how it makes my body feel.”
Saskia says that people shouldn't knock it until they've tried and claims Arthur has no problem with her going to someone else filling her need for snuggles.
"I’m 99 per cent sure he does not get jealous of cuddling because I check in with him, and talk to him about it,” she says.
“He’s more protective of me than jealous so as long as I’m safe it’s good.”
Arthur agrees, adding: “Saskia and I have a monogamous relationship but I don’t feel like cuddling violates the integrity of that.
“Saskia likes a lot of contact and she’s very comfortable around other people and she’s very affectionate.
“When we’re together we cuddle all the time so I can understand why she would need that human contact.”
