Boa constrictor.

Hard to top a fancy name like that!

This is weird and creepy.

"A 'position,' Vaccha, is something that a Tathagata has done away with. What a Tathagata sees is this: 'Such is form, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is perception...such are fabrications...such is consciousness, such its origination, such its disappearance.'" - Aggi-Vacchagotta Sutta

And kind of sad. Its monetizing even non-sexual affection. Who wants to cuddle with a stranger anyway? :shock:

Agreed. To be honest it boggles me that people find this any less egregious than sexual prostitution.

It's not so strange, given that we live in a society where norms are set in abstract, materialist, consumerist terms -- where it's all about getting this or that; not just material possessions, but social actions are treated like material possessions as well. In the same way one goes grocery shopping or buys a tv or a car, one buys the "friendship experience", or "cuddling" etc.

Perhaps cuddling could be a universal experience for living beings.
When I go to my friends place the dog come to me and ask for a cuddle all the time.

Wow. Sounds like I gotta get with the times. I still think I will still primarily focus on cuddling with my wife and cats though.

like i said i was seriously considering doing this, but i posted on craigslist and the only response so far wants me to get naked
i couldn't imagine not catching feelings, even between a gay man and a lesbian
but what about massage therapy? i mean, this has an appearance of being valid if you examine it in a way. is human touch a luxury or a commodity
