A really good hug can be priceless, but if you're Sam Hess, it can be $60. She has the kind of job that is the envy of any cocktail party.

"I tell them I'm a professional cuddler and they immediately say professional what?" Hess said.

The former personal trainer has also worked in restaurants and most recently a nine-to-five office job. But none of those positions involved so many, well, positions that she says she's naturally gifted to give.

"Absolutely I am a huge touchy person, I've always been that away I'm just touchy," Hess told Newschannel 8.

Her cuddle career started six months ago after she heard of a similar business in New York. "And I thought that is such a good idea if anyone can do this I can."
