MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison business that's offering snuggles for $60 an hour says it's finally open after receiving the necessary city permits.

The Snuggle House in Madison was supposed to launch last month, but city officials said it had not obtained a certificate of occupancy and to show that it has hiring, training, security and other written protocols. The city wanted assurances the Snuggle House is a legitimate business and not a place of prostitution.

Owner Matthew Hurtado says the Snuggle House has a thick manual detailing proper protocol, eight security cameras, and his staff has extensive training on how to handle various scenarios.

Staff member Lonnie Johnson says two appointments were handled Friday.
