MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A new snuggling business in Wisconsin’s capital city may have closed amid scrutiny from city officials.

Customers at Madison’s Snuggle House can snuggle with professional cuddlers for $60 an hour. Supporters say the business helps people relax through non-sexual touch.

But city officials suspect the Snuggle House may be a thinly veiled brothel and cuddling will lead to sexual assault. Police say they’re planning sting operations at the Snuggle House and city attorneys are busy drafting new ordinances to govern the business.

It’s unclear whether the Snuggle House is still open. No one was at the business Saturday.

A Facebook page claiming to be the Snuggle House’s site says it is closed, but Hurtado and his attorney have not responded to repeated requests for confirmation.
