MADISON (WSAU) If you need a hug and are in Madison on Friday, stop by the Snuggle House. The facility's owners are planning to open for business Friday after getting all the approvals needed from the city.
The Snuggle House wanted to open on October 1st. That was delayed by city leaders who said all of the necessary permits weren't approved, and that a business plan hadn't been filed.
The business is touted as a place where people can buy time with a professional snuggler to cuddle, with nothing beyond that. The management says there will be security cameras in every room, and the business will not be a den of prostitution.
An hour of snuggling will cost $60 an hour. Similar businesses in other cities charge between $300 and $400 for a snuggle session for an entire night.
