West Coast's new business Cuddle Connection sells snuggle sessions.

Need a hug? Just make a reservation: A new business in California called Cuddle Connection is selling snuggle sessions, which the owner claims are good for your health. You just have to be open to cuddling with a complete stranger, and you know, willing to pay for it.

Kelly Peterson, the owner of Cuddle Connection, is offering comfort and relaxation at the rate of $29 for 30 minutes, or $49 for an hour. And shockingly, this isn't even the first business of its type to open up in the U.S. Similar clinics have popped up in New York and Portland. So what exactly does this entail? At Cuddle Connection, clients are snuggled by Kelly or one of her female staff members in a loveseat or swanky beanbag chair (and if you're in the mood for pillow talk, that's allowed, too). A few important things to note: Clients must come fully clothed and clean — because, obviously — and all the rooms are monitored for safety.
