TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Bizarre Job: A woman opened a business where she cuddles with her customers. That's the extent of the business. She's a professional cuddler. Her name is Ali C. She opened her business in New York City late last year and claims to have 30 customers, all but one are male. She calls it therapeutic touch, and her website claims cuddling and snuggling are proven to improve your health. 

What does it cost, you ask? $60 for 45 minutes of spooning, $80 for an hour. An overnight stay - $500. She even offers a $200 movie and cuddle package. Customers have to sign a legal waiver promising there's no sexual contact of any sort.

One customer who went to Ali C. says he left satisfied. He claims he has seasonal depression, and told the NY Daily News "it's a very nurturing sort of environment." Other cuddling businesses have already opened in a few cities around the country.

    For the first time, shopper in America are likely to make more purchases on line than in brick and mortar stores. It's a shift which has been coming for years but this is likely to be the first time it's crossed the threshold. While the effect on big retailers can be mitigated somewhat by on line offerings, it's not quite as easy on smaller, local stores.
