Professional Snuggler

This is by far one of the weirdest jobs I’ve heard of but also maybe one of the best. Being a professional snuggler is actual profession in Japan, where for a dollar an hour, people pay to sleep next to or snuggle with another person. Apparently, the trend is so getting big that’s it also starting to invade the U.S., as a place called The Snuggery has opened up in Rochester, New York. It’s prices are a little more steep, though – 50 bucks for a private 45 minute snuggle session. There’s also the “overnight cuddle,” which goes from 10:30 at night until 7 am the next day and will cost you $425.
