While models have been asked in the past to do some crazy things and pose with some killer animals, this was not a paid job. Rather, this is something voluntary that people actually pay to do.
"'Entwine in Interspecies Love to Remember your Wild Divine Nature Get present, embrace Power and embody Pleasure [sic],'" the model captioned the image, adding, “Thank you Serpentessa for the amazing experience.”
The spa is run by a "snake priestess" whose snakes "hisspered" their medicine to her over 20 years ago, enabling her to spread the perceived healing properties of serpents. The website explains, “the boa constrictors’ soothing undulations dispel any fears or concerns by toning and stimulating your body’s vagus nerve, releasing endorphins and oxytocin. These feel-good hormones relieve stress, create pleasure and increase your emotional, physical and cognitive resiliencies in today’s stressful world.”
While many people probably could not ever imagine themselves relaxing and feeling pleasure as long, heavy snakes slither around their bodies, it's clear many others do, and are willing to pay nearly US$300 for a standard single-snake massage that lasts an hour and 15 minutes. Maxwell is obviously a big fan, as her two-snake massage is reported to cost over US$500.
If you're up for a challenge, there's a VIP Snake Immersion Retreat in upstate New York just coiled in wait for your arrival. As for us, we'll leave the snakes to the models.
