A woman in Portland, Oregon has opened a professional cuddling shop, where she charges customers $60 (over Rs 3700) for a cuddle.

Professional cuddler Samantha Hess gives customers an hour's worth of spooning and "the level of human contact that we want or need in order to be our optimal selves," the Independent reported.

Business at 'Cuddle Up To Me' has taken off that provides hair strokes, hand-holding and a plethora of different cuddle positions and Hess has gotten as many as 10,000 emails in a week.

Hess said that the business is in no way adult-orientated and that she got the idea for it during a low point in her life and ensured that the sessions are taped for the safety of both cuddler and cuddlee
