I am the Wizard Master


Have you guys heard about this? Apparently there's a website where you can try to find a "cuddle buddy" close to you, who will come around to your place to cuddle without it progressing to anything more.

https://www.cuddlecomfort.com/



I find the concept a little disturbing, and I'm not sure what their vetting process is to stop people with bad intentions from using the service. I can't imagine anything about this would be particularly fulfilling. What are your thoughts?

Who doesn't want to cuddle with a random stranger on the internet? Who believes showering once a month is ok and may or may not assault you. :)

Y'know how women signing up for online dating sites get constant offers from guys who want a quick hookup, even when their profile says they are clearly looking for something else and it's not even one of the many sites/apps used for casual sex?

Do you think that's a problem for women looking for 'cuddle buddies', too? I think there's a slight chance it's a problem. Just basing it on nothing, really. Just casually assuming. Just going with my gut. But I think there might be a slight risk.

When I worked at BCIT they had a dark room with a bunch of sleeping mats and mattresses on the floor for students to sleep in. It was fairly quickly abandoned for reasons you would expect. So that big room for sleep turned into like 4 single occupant pods that they put in the middle of the library so it's neither private nor particularly quiet. BCIT.

Students would regularly fall asleep on seats with their laptops and stuff just sitting there on nearby tables. If you ever fall out of society, there's good pickings there.

You can just pay a normal sex worker for this kind of thing.

Not having to gently caress or suck makes their session way less work. Just provide the dude guy some human contact and let him talk about whatever.

At least you both know exactly what you are getting.

Rolling the dice with "hope this stranger I'm willing let into my home, lock the door, and consent to touch me doesn't decide to kill me (either with physical violence or weaponized BO, or doesn't believe in wiping their rear end)" seems like a very unappealing proposal.

This business model makes no sense.

Life hack though, if you don't mind it being same sex, you can get a cuddle buddy for free if you ride packed intercity buses in countries that are more comfortable with close contact, when they fall asleep and lean on you. First time I was in Spain or something I was totally weirded out by people totally getting in my comfort zone, and kept trying to keep distance, but eventually I just decided to lean into it.

Just makes me feel too bad to wake someone up if they pass out on me as long as they are not gross.

It's like if a cat decides to jump in your lap and be held, you are basically trapped until it chooses to leave.

It takes a cold heart to plop a cat who really wants to be on you back to the floor. I think it may technically be a war crime.

Reminds me of the F-Plus episode on Cuddle Parties, which are large meet-ups where people get together and cuddle. It's as hosed up as it sounds.

poo poo, the person who submitted the doc was on that episode and even said, out of all the crazy fetish stuff she's found over the years, it was the cuddle party stuff that creeped her out the most.

I went to an anime con one time because it was a free trip to Chicago with mates and was really creeped out by the amount of weird long hugging, and "glomping" which is like a weird cutesy way of bear hugging someone unexpectedly. Never again.

This one is the best one.

When you make your profile it asks you to define your own smell levels, and your preferences of your cuddle partner's smell level and showering frequency so you can find a better match.

Lots of other useful options too, like the "how handsy are you" level. Most users choose "whoops, my hand slipped, sorry".

Matchmaking.
