Cuddle Toronto

Spoonlighting is Toronto's newest cuddle service

You have a job and some extra cash; you're ahead of the game in every respect but one: you have no one to spoon. You hear that new Carly Rae Jepson song and your eyes water. Is it just dust from the condo boom, or is it finally time to take proactive measures to retaliate against your lifestyle of loneliness? You could try your luck finding tenderness for free, or take the fast track with Toronto's newest Cuddle Team.

Spoonlighting's new site follows the format and sells cuddles by the hour - $65 for the first hour, $120 for two hours (a buck a minute), or $180 for a three hour marathon - that's nearly half of Satantango. If your cuddler falls asleep, I'm not sure about protocol in regard to elbowing them awake. Cuddlers employed by the site include pet lovers, cartoon fans, a food hobbyist, a cinephile (oh my), and at least one versatile big spoon/little spoon crossover talent.

Before you click through, eager mortal, how does Spoonlighting rate against relatively new Cudle Me? Not great, now that the competitor has dropped their rates from $80 per hour to $60 (see our upcoming post: Is the Cuddle Business in Toronto in Trouble?). One bonus of Spoonlighting, however, is you get to see the faces of the people you're going to be cuddling, rather than the anonymous, shame-filled stylized portraits of their competitor.

Would you pay to have someone to subject to Bela Tarr movies? Let us know in the comments.
