Cuddle Worker


      Almost 2 months ago when Veronika and I were just about to board a plane at the Heathrow airport to fly to JFK, we spotted a small pile of magazines on one of the benches - In Style, Gloss and all those other incredibly good reads providing loads of enlightening information. Not. The pile looked deserted and sadly so, therefore we decided to rescue it and I shoved it in my already-bursting-at-the-seams bag. About 8 hours later when the pile of magazines was weighing me down like a pile of bricks during yet another transfer, I was of course cursing all the glossy magazine gods for testing me with all ze pretty pictures and I was cursing myself too for failing the test miserably. But every story has a silver lining and so does this one so read on.
      It took me about 15 minutes (and I'm being generous) to go through all of the ample leaflets and since all they evoked was "Oh, I want this!" and "Man, her legs are so frigging long!" I don't think all that schlepping was justified. But as promised, there is a silver lining. While turning the pages of Gloss, I spotted a short paragraph, which confirmed my belief that our species is indeed and entirely fucked and fucked up. Not that my belief is on shaky grounds or that it needs confirming, but let's be honest - who doesn't like to hear they're right from time to time? Or over and over again...
      The paragraph was about a Japanese cuddle cafe where one can go and buy themselves a good - cuddle. You climb in a bed with a girl and just cuddle with her: You can pay her to spoon you, to rub your back, to hug you, you literally pay her to simply and solely cuddle. And apparently Gloss wasn't making this stuff up - see?
      Now my two questions are these: If you can pay a girl for sex but she's too lazy or unqualified to cuddle and you can pay a girl for cuddling but she won't give you a blow job, let you inside her vagina or kiss you, when are the girls providing some kissing services going to pop up? After sex workers and cuddle workers, the kissing workers are the logical next step in our incredibly illogical and delusional society. Not that I'm against any of the working ladies, the services themselves don't bother me, what bothers me is the need for them. Which brings me to my next question: If you have 300 friends on Facebook and you still don't have anyone to cuddle with you for free, don't you think there's something wrong with zis pretty picture?

Shorts - eBay (tnx 4 the gift, V ;)), shirt - C&A, jacket - Newyorker, heels - Zara, necklace - H&M

      Don't forget to follow FPS via Twitter and please do come back again this Friday to see if there are any other farm animals (besides this adorable little cow) in my closet. Posting days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!

  2. Once again: I love how you write your posts! It is crazy how close we can be to people who live on the other side of the planet via facebook or twitter or instagram, but do not know how the person next to us feels.
    you think you know everything about them but in fact, you know nothing. nothing can be as intense as a good talk, a hug or a pat on the head. I hate it how people can be as ignorant these days, just because they think being nice and vulnerable makes you weak, but they just don't get how this is what makes you strong.

    If you were wrong, say it, if you don't like it, show it and if you like someone, tell them.
    This is what makes you a strong person. And if you are a real person, you will be getting your cuddles. Maybe not by 300 facebook friends, but by this one good friend. You won't need a cuddle cafe.

  4. DEM LEGS, GIRL! Soooo hot! The cuddle cafe thing is actually genius, in its own twisted way. Everyone's fucked up "because of their parents" anymore. Can you imagine how much bank they're making?!

  6. Seriously? Cuddle buddies you can buy?
    Wow, I didn't know they had that -_-
    When will it end? Ha, you're right, kiss workers are gonna be next.
    Anyway, love the cow print shorts!

  7. Hmm, cuddling buddies sounds mega bizzare - BUT there are men in Japan that LIVE with life sized pillows with girls faces on them. They sleep with them, take them to work, to visit their friends... they are REAL PILLOW GIRLFRIENDS.... something weird going on with Japan.

  9. OMG really! I was about to say how ridiculous, but then I pictured something in my mind. I'm out shopping, and there is a big bed in the middle of the square with a lookalike Tyson Beckford offering a cuddle for £10, I'm sorry, I'm gonna jump in, but I can be forgiven I guess because I only have 140 people on Facebook lol!

    Love those shoes girlfriend!

  10. Incredibly absurd. There is more. In a few years, there will be not only kiss workers, but compliment workers, listening (not speak) workers or "hold your hand for five minutes" workers.
    Life is crazy.

  12. Of course we all need cuddles, but you´re right, if we can´t get them for free, then somethings going wrong! However I totally love your outfit and I would cuddle (almost) anyone if I could get these shoes instead :D

  15. You can pay people to cuddle?? That's so.... weird? Cuddling is something so intimate! I can only imagine how awkward it would be to do it with a stranger. Hahah when you said kissing workers, I thought, "hey something like that already exists! Kissing booths." But then again, I've only seen that in movies... ie she's the man. Love your cow printed shorts :)

  16. Just weird. I mean, well, I have a "cuddle machine" at home so I can't really talk, since I'm never missing some cuddle... but still! However I know quite a few people that are very lonely and would go for it. Well, if it helps... (?)
    Love your shorts and beautiful annoying legs !
