After being on the site, off and on over a 2 yr period, I gave up. A "professional" is merely one who charges for cuddling, not a person who necessarily has any training, at all. Many turned out to be escorts, drug users, cheating spouses, and like so many other sites, countless profiles were fakes/scams using profile photos stolen off the net. After reporting many escorts to the company, not a one was ever removed. The site is basically an online clearinghouse for escorts and, for those who are not selling their extended services, the majority of the others have been extremely lonely people who were desperate for affection. Yes, touch is important, but it needs to be with an emotionally healthy person for it to be beneficial. After conversing online numerous times with the company, they are, in my opinion, putting making their 15% booking fee ahead of monitoring the type of individual they are setting up a "session" for. It is no better than Craigslist, which is a very dangerous site for meeting people.
