Cuddling And Wrestling Are Just Two Ways To Make Money On The Side

mitú

Side hustles are a way of life for young people and they can be anything.

Side hustles are a very important and common part of the economy for young people. Whether it is freelance writing, social media managing, or consulting, you know someone who is working a side hustle to make ends meet. The upside to these side hustles is that they can be anything you want them to be. mitú’s new show “Side Hustle” is taking you behind the scene of some of the most intriguing side hustles. The first episode explores side hustles you can do with your body that kind of make sense.

Janelle Perez is the brains behind CuddleLux, a professional cuddling service.

There is something to be said about a good cuddle. The right touch and squeeze and alleviate all of your stress from the day. For some people, there just isn’t anyone at home to provide that kind of physical touch that can change everything. Fortunately, CuddleLux is expanding a market of people who just want a little cuddle at the end of the day. Despite people first thinking that the idea was weird, according to Perez, they usually come around to the idea of professional cuddling.

“I don’t think that my parents know but my siblings know,” Perez admits to co-host Sasha Merci. “I charge $120 an hour, but the industry rate is $80 an hour. I was doing a regular day job and I just found that it wasn’t for me. I didn’t have enough time with my son, time with myself. I was just running around like a crazy person. I was like, ‘This is for the birds. I’ve got to find something else. Something more flexible.’”

Dirty Sanchez is a luchador that is basically living out our childhood dreams.

We all have memories and home videos of us playing lucha libre with our primos and hermanos. It was just something that we did and we never worried about anyone getting hurt because we were young and invincible. Dirty Sanchez just never grew past the obsession phase and it led him to a profitable side hustle. Now, don’t go calling it fake. Dirty Sanchez is not here for that kind of talk.

“I have plenty of doctor bills to prove that it’s not fake,” Dirty Sanchez tells co-host David Alvarez. “When I’m going to hit you, I’m going to hit you but you’re not going to go to the hospital. I was doing a show in Philadelphia. It was a deathmatch. So we decided to go up on this high balcony that they had so they threw me off and unfortunately that table did not break my fall so I must have fallen about 20 to 25 feet. They checked up on me and said, yeah, pretty much what I had did was pretty much everything in my stomach had came loose and went completely down from that impact.”
