Faith Black established CuddleBug in November of 2012 because she believes that everyone needs to be touched. Cuddling is a great way to get the close, personal contact that everyone needs without involving the intimacy of sex.
After clients go through the basic screening process, Faith provides individuals with private cuddling sessions. These sessions are meant to heal the mind, put the body at ease, and overall relax the spirit.
As a rape survivor, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), as well as an active member of the Denver Kink community, I have experienced firsthand what can happen if a person is not touched enough. Depression, loneliness, anxiety, failure to thrive... I'm not saying that cuddling is an end-all cure, but it can certainly be helpful when dealing with emotions and conditions like these.
I strongly believe that every person in the world has an amount that they need to be touched over a period of time. The brush of fingertips with the clerk at the grocery store, the simple tap of the shoulder when someone is trying to get your attention, the gentle brush of the arm as someone rushes past you - All of these simple acts give us, little by little, all the touch that some of us need in life. Some of us can be very happy only rarely being touched, while others need to be touched much more often.
I am a person who needs to be touched a little more than most, and this was the main reason that I started CuddleBug. I don't just help my clients - My clients help me.
I currently run my business single-handedly, but I look forward to the day that I can expand my business and, hopefully, hire some helpers.
