(WKOW Madison)   A business is starting in Madison, Wisconsin based entirely on cuddling. Madison officials aren't sold on the idea, as they seem to equate "cuddling" with "prostitution"   ( divider line

OK, serious time.

This is the internet so I know a bunch of you are single nerds living in a pocky-wrapper-covered 1-bdrm apt somewhere.  Honestly, I think the worst thing about being single (as I was for many years) was not the sex deprivation.  I can handle that, that's what wackin' it or semi-regrettable one-night stands are for.  The worst part was feeling myself become all hard edged and cranky from lack of affection.  I don't know if I would have resorted to paying for cuddles, but if I had, I bet it would have felt pretty good.

The fact that people assume this is a front for prostitution says quite a bit about us.

Wow, what an intrepid start-up.  True business visionaries can see all the way to 11 years ago.

Nana's Vibrator: This somehow makes me more sad for the decline of intelligent society than some math or language test.

Wait until you find out about dakimakura.

Lady Indica: I also think we should have a puppy store, where you can go in and cuddle and be cuddled by puppies and doggies for an hour for a price. -a ll-the-rage

UsikFark: Sadly it's run by a sketchy guy and there seems to be only light planning for employee safety.

Boo. Honestly most of the 'cuddle' shiat I've seen has had a perv undertone. And kink is fine (I'm a pro-Domme blah blah blah) but you need to be upfront about your kink. I dislike when kink is wrapped up in a ton of bullshiat to lure people in (typically new age garbage). It has a creepy non-consent vibe to me when people aren't all on the same page.

A sincere, platonic, cuddle-sleep service though could be such a wonderful thing for so many people who need physical intimacy without sexuality in a safe setting. I think it would be especially wonderful for elderly people who've lost a partner but would just enjoy being held, or having their back rubbed while they slept. Or even just the proximity of another human being when you're sleeping can be intensely soothing.

But again...puppy store. I want a puppy store membership.

My GF is a cuddle whore jeez in bed she will just latch on to me with an iron grip. The roomate gets all cuddly when she breaks up with a guy.
