There is no one that I have talked with who thinks the proposed Snuggle House in Madison, a business where customers can cuddle with young staff members for $60 an hour, would be anything but a house of ill-repute. What my friends can also not understand is exactly who are the more than 300 clients reportedly waiting in line for ‘snuggle’ sessions. What must be so awry in their lives that they need to pay for.. well…’snuggles’?
What is clear from any perspective this matter is viewed The Snuggle House is not a legitimate business. What can be done to make it legitimate and not have it turn into a house of prostitution and still allow for real and genuine snuggles?
Last night while watching television I came across an idea that has charm and down-home sensibilities written all over it.
Big Hugs Elmo is 22″ tall and made of delightfully cuddly soft deluxe fabric and responds to hugs and cuddles. Elmo can communicate when he’s being rocked or bounced around and is even delicate enough to tell one of those 300 needy folks when he’s being held upside down.
