Director's statement

Director's statement

Research studies have linked oxytocin, also known as the cuddle hormone, to a decrease in social anxiety, stress, and heart disease. Loneliness is deadly. Professional snuggling is a real service that offers a temporary solution to a physiological need, but for many people, the concept is just one degree separated from prostitution. With this film I wanted to destygmatize the transaction and humanize the parties involved. Before Midnight Cowboy is a dark comedy that evolved into something deeper. humans are sad. The snuggle is real.

This is part of our Eyes on Pride playlist.
