Love is in the air #36 – Lovepodcast New York 3/10
I stumbled upon a video about a professional cuddling service.
I felt curious about it and contacted the founders, told them I was coming to New York and wanted to meet a cuddling professional and talk about their work. So the founders put me together with Ella and here we meet at her apartment in Washington Heights and I ask her what this cuddling service is all about.
We also talk about love and relationships; Ella has some beautiful conclusions about what she has learned through her cuddling work. She feels grateful about the opportunity to get to know so many people and also to see how important communication is in relationships. Ella sees the importance of really asking for what you want and to be clear with your desires and to be in touch with yourself. Not to settle for mediocre relationships, lack of communication, lack of affections, lack of intimacy – because we all deserve that.
