Snuggling and snookering.

Was the CapTimes snookered by some web pages about "Snuggle House"? This seems absurd:
According to a recently created website and Facebook page, a new business called "The Snuggle House" is coming to Madison's east side on Oct. 1....

The Snuggle House promotes "touch therapy." Similar businesses and "cuddle parties" have promoted group and professional snuggling because of the increase in oxytocin released during the activity which can lead to a feeling of well-being and happiness....

The Snuggle House does not list an address or phone number. A Facebook message seeking additional information on where, when, why and how the Snuggle House will work was not returned on Tuesday.
If it's a real place, we could have fun mocking it, but come on. I'm stopping at critiquing the journalism on display here. Why are you promoting a (possible) business that doesn't respond to a press contact? It's lame and empty titillation, even as the purported business disclaims any sexual aspect to the services it would sell (if it were real) for $60 an hour.

From the looks of you and Meade, professor, there's already a snuggle house right there at your address.

A Double Snuggle sounds suspiciously like a ménage à trois at a rock bottom price.

To be fair, I have heard of these a while ago in Los Angeles. Could be legit. Odd, but legit.

Hugging and kissing a loving woman is good for the soul. That is not a theory. That is a tested truth.

I heard of cuddle parties a few years ago (and was repulsed), but they do in fact exist. I haven't heard of an actual dedicated cuddle emporium, which is even more disturbing, but it could definitely be real.

No word on whether happy endings were included in the service.
