A new app has been launched that enables people to have a cuddle from a stranger.

Cuddlr, based on the matchmaking sites Tinder and Grindr, is a sex-free alternative for those who want some human contact.

The app matches people with others in their area and they have just 15 minutes to respond to a request.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Cuddlr's creator, Charlie Williams, said: “On Cuddlr, you get together straight away, have a little cuddle, and then part ways.

“If you want to hang out again, you can exchange information then and there - but you already know what kind of cuddles they give.

“It is possible to report someone who cuddles inappropriately, and we encourage first-time pairs to do their cuddling in a public place.

“Users can give information about their cuddling preferences such as if they favour being the little or big spoon.”

A rating system is used to assess cuddles as “awesome”, “good”, “ok” or “inappropriate”.

The free app stresses: “Unlike some other apps, Cuddlr is strictly about PG-rated experiences. Keep the cuddle a cuddle!

“At times you may want to ask someone about having a coffee or learning to knit. Wait until the end of the cuddle, then ask politely.”
