Do you love to cuddle?

Would you like to increase your know-how with the help of two professional cuddlers?

Welcome to Cuddle Sanctuary!

I’m Jean Franzblau – Founder of The Cuddle Sanctuary in Los Angeles. (I’m the one on the left!) My colleague, Fei Wyatt, and I have worked with hundreds of clients and use the material that we present in this class every day. If you’d like to expand your repertoire and delight your next cuddle buddy, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ll show you ten of our favorite cuddle positions.

Our fun, descriptive names will help you remember them:

  • Baby Bear

  • Hug Boat

  • Lap of Luxury

  • Mouse

  • Koala

  • Tetris

  • Pancake

  • Syrup

  • Two Peas in a Pod

  • Gummy Bear

“I have nothing but praise about this course! Very detailed and to the point!”

Watch - Listen - Try

We've included some useful tools for you.

  • Video

    We’ve created 15 instructional videos so that you can observe step-by-step how we get into each position. We’ll demonstrate the language that we use to create a seamless experience for our cuddle buddies.

  • Pro Tips

    Each position has special attributes that create a distinct feeling. (For example, does your cuddle buddy want to “hold” or “be held”?) We’ll give you our pro tips so that you can pick the perfect position every time.

  • Practice PDF

    The best way to learn these positions is to practice. Bring your phone, tablet or laptop to your cuddle space or if you prefer, print out our Practice PDF. Approach with a curious attitude and a sense of humor - then let the fun begin!

The science is amazing:

Soothing touch lowers cortisol - the stress hormone. The result is relaxation.
