Snuggle House_Hass.jpg

In this Oct. 15 photo, Matthew Hurtado talks about The Snuggle House in downtown Madison, Wis. Customers at Madison's new 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. Hurtado's past is raising red flags; he has filed for bankruptcy twice, written a book about a sex addict meeting a supernatural being and, according to city attorneys, has worked as a stripper.
