Professional Cuddler In Silicon Valley As Layoffs Rise

This is a really odd article about how Silicon Valley has suddenly gone from uber confidence to panic - ‘It’s Just Bad News All the Time’: With the Tech Economy Buckling, Silicon Valley Therapists Are in High Demand — The Information:

Mahabali is a professional cuddler for Cuddlist.com, whose job is to boost people’s mood via the oxytocin hits from physical touch. He averages four sessions a week, he estimates, double what he was doing last year. He attributes the increasing demand to the growing stress among the tech workers and startup CEOs he visits. Sessions often get emotional, he said, with some clients oscillating between weeping and laughter. People talk about feeling isolated, about juggling return-to-work policies and child care, and about their worries over having to lay off people—or being laid off themselves.
