Welcome to Cuddle Sanctuary!

I’m Jean Franzblau – Founder of the Cuddle Sanctuary in Los Angeles. My friend and colleague, Fei Wyatt, and I have designed a program to give you the tools you need to deliver cuddle sessions with professionalism and self-assurance.
Welcome to Cuddle Sanctuary!

Let us show you the ropes!

We've organized all the information you need to create satisfying cuddle sessions for you and your clients. Topics include:

  • Cuddle Positions

    We'll demonstrate for you ten cuddle positions so that you'll never come up short when a client has a request.

  • Safety Protocols

    We'll describe eight safety protocols to help you vet clients and empower you to say no to clients that aren't a match.

  • Session Flow

    You'll learn the six phases of a cuddle session so that you can feel confident that you know what you're doing.
