Does it count as prostitution if you pay a stranger for a long, soothing, CUDDLE?
Over the past few years, SNUGGLE HOUSES have supposedly been springing up around the country. They're businesses where you actually pay around $60 an hour, just to cuddle with someone.
There's not SUPPOSED to be anything sexual here . . . it's totally platonic . . . and snuggle houses have opened in New York and Colorado.
The most recent one was SUPPOSED to open yesterday in Madison, Wisconsin . . . but city officials stopped it until they're SURE it's not a brothel.
Obviously there's a fine line between paying someone to cuddle with you, and negotiating for more.
One of the main reasons they're suspicious it's a brothel is that all but ONE of the snugglers on staff are female. (ABC 27 - Madison)
(If this sounds familiar, we've heard about CUDDLE PARTIES in the past, where people supposedly just SPOON each other.)
